Royal Ride with a Roving Resume: Baroda Maharaja’s Majestic 1929 Rolls-Royce Phantom II Hits the Auction Block!

BRUMMEN, NL – In an extraordinary twist of luxury and history, the 1929 Rolls-Royce Phantom II, once the prized possession of Prince Pratap Singh Rao Gaekwad, the 13th Maharaja of Baroda, is now up for grabs! This classic beauty, with a mileage of just 10,236 km, isn’t just a car – it’s a rolling testament to extravagance and elegance.

Originally owned by the young prince, known for his lavish lifestyle and tiger-hunting escapades, this Rolls-Royce Phantom II chassis number 70WJ was more than just a mode of transport; it was a symbol of royal grandeur. With its first appearance as a showstopper in India in early 1930, the car quickly became the talk of the town.

But wait, there’s more! This isn’t your average vintage vehicle. This Phantom II, sporting an ‘Open Tourer’ coachwork, has journeyed through the hands of several notable individuals, including Londoner Keith Williams and IBM giants, the Watson family. The car even underwent a chic transformation in Spain, where it received a sleek “Boat Tail” design by the renowned Josep Vert.

Fast forward to today, and this historical gem is in excellent condition, flaunting a majestic blue exterior, a classy brown interior, and a manual transmission. It’s not just a car; it’s a piece of history on wheels, having been part of the luxurious lifestyles of maharajas, business moguls, and ambassadors.

The price tag? A cool € 265,000 (INR 2.37 crore). But can you really put a price on a car that has witnessed more history than most museums? This Rolls-Royce Phantom II is not just a vehicle; it’s a mobile narrative of the roaring twenties, waiting for its next chapter to be written by a lucky and undoubtedly affluent new owner. Catch this royal ride at the Gallery in Brummen, and who knows, you might just drive away with a piece of history!
