Rolls-Royce 1930 Phantom II Boattail Roadster

1930 Rolls-Royce Phantom II Boattail Roadster
CHASSIS NUMBER 23GN
BODY NUMBER 7351
ENGINE NUMBER AH35
(ALL ORIGINAL)
BACKGROUND AND HISTORY
Ordered by Sir Julien Cahn on October 18, 1929 and delivered to Hooper and Company for installation of this coachwork on February 24, 1930.  Received by Sir Cahn in April 1930.   As delivered, did not have front or rear bumpers. Rolls-Royce ""build sheet"" shows that the motorcar was returned for installation of new radiator and front and rear bumpers in February 1934 after an apparent shunt.  Bumpers were removed when car was later restored. 
This extraordinary coachwork, original and unique to this car, is so admired that two scale models have been created, by two different model builders, not of the series, but only of this particular chassis, 23GN.  ""Top Marques"" produced 48 examples in two different colors (red and black), with an additional one-off model for the collection of H.R.H. The Duke of Gloucester, an admirer of the motorcar.  These models quickly sold out, and are now almost as hard to acquire as the car itself.
