  • Following the construction of a mere 18 Phantom IV chassis, strictly for ruling heads of state, Rolls-Royce turned back to offering a Phantom for the very wealthy in 1959. The Phantom V, as it was logically dubbed, was based upon an all-new chassis design and included a new V8 engine, as well as a Hydra-Matic automatic transmission and servo-assisted brakes. It remained a tremendously expensive automobile that was produced solely to individual special-order. As with earlier Rolls-Royces, the tradition of bespoke custom coachwork continued, with the world’s few remaining coachbuilders turning out ash forms that were skinned in aluminum and finished in the owner’s choice of paint colors and trim.

    Among the scarcest bodies for the Phantom V were those built by long-lived UK coachbuilder Park Ward, which in 1961 was merged with H.J. Mulliner under Rolls-Royce auspices, becoming Mulliner Park Ward. Thus, only the earliest Phantom Vs were bodied by Park Ward independently, some to their very attractive body design 980, a “notchback” limousine.

    The magnificent 1961 Rolls-Royce Phantom V Limousine featured here is finished in stunning Tudor Gray Metallic over Shell Gray with a gorgeous deep burgundy Connolly leather/wool interior surrounded by magnificent Walnut woodwork throughout. This incredible motorcar was specially ordered and delivered new to John Mecom owner of the New Orleans Saints football team. Mr. Mecom subsequently sold the Phantom V to renowned actor Dale Robertson who in turn sold it to famed comedian Red Skelton where it remained for many years. Just released from a prominent Rolls-Royce collection and 5LAT54 is ready for its next caretaker. We are incredibly pleased to offer this extremely rare and sought-after 1961 Rolls-Royce Phantom V Limousine to the most sophisticated collector, investor, or enthusiast who understands and appreciates this virtually handbuilt masterpiece.

    For all of you who are not familiar, Rolls-Royce no longer exists as it has for the past hundred years; it is now owned by BMW and models are being mass-produced. The days of cars being handcrafted by artisans in Crewe are now just a fond memory. This particular car was built at a time when Rolls-Royce was truly building the world’s finest motorcars with the care and craftsmanship evident in every detail.

    Classic cars have proven to be among the most resilient and rewarding investments in recent years, with the Historic Automobile Group Index (HAGI) jumping 39% in 2013, 16% in 2014, and 17% in 2015 while posting gains of 467% over the last 10 years.

    Financing

    Finance rates as low as 5.9%.


    We know that classic car financing can pose a unique challenge. Although a vintage or exotic car can be an excellent investment, some financial institutions attempt to apply standard “used car” rules for financing a classic car, which in many cases can make loan approval difficult.


    We work closely with many banking institutions that understand and recognize the collector value of classic cars and view them as an investment, which allows us to help you get the financing you need so that you can have the car you have dreamed of.


    Terms available up to 144 Months


    If you have any questions, feel free to contact us, (314)291-7000 or credit@schmitt.com
