Rolls-Royce - Phantom Classic
The Phantom was Rolls-Royce's replacement for the original Silver Ghost. Like the famed Ghost, the Phantom was constructed both in the United Kingdom and United States, with the US model trailing the UK by one year on introduction and two in replacement. One major improvement over the Silver Ghost was the new pushrod OHV straight-6 engine. Constructed, as was state of the art at the time, as three groups of two cylinders with detachable heads, the large engine produced excellent power to pull the large heavy car. The engine used a 4¼ in (107.9 mm) bore and long 5½ in (139.7 mm) stroke for a total of 7.7 Ltr (7,668 cc/467 in³) of displacement. Aluminum was substituted for cast iron in the cylinder heads in 1928. UK models were built at Rolls' Derby factory, while US Phantoms were built in Springfield, Massachusetts.

 

The Phantom II replaced the New Phantom in 1929, sharing the 7.7 Ltr engine from its predecessor, being the last large six-cylinder Rolls. The engine was unitary with a 4-speed manual transmission. Synchromesh was added on gears 3 and 4 in 1932 and on gear 2 in 1935.
