As an elaboration on the sizable luxury frameworks that had become the mainstay of Rolls Royce by 1925, the Phantom I was not a massive change of course from the previous 40/50s or Silver Ghosts with the same semi-elliptical springs on the front axle and cantilever springs suspending the back, as well. The only major improvement would be an engine that offered about a third more in power when compared to the Silver Ghost. Only Rolls Royce built the chassis and other essentials. The entire aesthetic direction of the car would have been left to the personal prerogative of the customer and whichever coachbuilder they chose, each with their own unique approach and makers mark.
One example of this was the somewhat unorthodox Jonckheere Coup, an absolutely monstrous and visually stunning work that stretches credulity with its almost aeronautical influences. Having so many different forces at play can make it difficult to pin down any one principle that embodies a real Phantom I, but as the second generation in what would be a proud lineage it will always have a place in history.
Looking to purchase a classic Rolls Royce?
Its important when perusing for a classic car, to keep your excitement under control, take few steps back, and really think about what youre looking at. While any properly maintained vehicle can match the quality of something fresh from the dealership; that is rarely going to be the case when dealing with private sellers who may not possess the integrity or may even lack the information that will safeguard your purchase. Do you want a Junker with a fresh coat of paint or an heirloom that has been kept for generations and can be kept for many more? This is the question you need to ask when weighing incomplete facts and questionable deals versus finding a professional who will thoroughly inspect a vehicle and reckon its exact worth.
