Rolls-Royce Phantom IV

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Driven -

One of the more ex­clu­sive ve­hi­cles on the road in post-war Bri­tain, 18 Phantom IVs were sold to heads of states and mem­bers of royal fam­i­lies. The then Princess El­iz­a­beth and Prince Philip used an IV with coach­work by HJ Mulliner as their pri­vate car but on HM’s suc­ces­sion to the throne in 1952 it was re­clas­si­fied as state trans­port. As such, it was sent Hooper & Co where it was re­uphol­stered and given a new paint fin­ish in Royal Claret and black. To­day, it is the old­est mem­ber of the Royal Fleet.
