Shooting Brake body

This magnificent Phantom I with its in line 6 cylinder engine of 7,668 cc capacity, was originally completed with limousine body by coachbuilders W. H. Knibbs & Sons Ltd of Manchester and sold to its first owner, the Rt Hon G. Fryer, who kept the car until at least 1939. The Phantom was first registered in May 1928 as 'RY 3315', a Leicester mark. The shooting brake body, said to be by Weaver, is believed to have been fitted by Hooper during WW2 when the Phantom was used to ferry RAF repair crews and their tools to stricken aircraft.






UK'S Earliest 'safety' or 'pace' cars

'84FH' is next recorded in 1953 when it belonged to Mrs Mirabel Topham, whose family owned Aintree racecourse, home of the world famous Grand National steeplechase, and stayed in the family's possession until 1984. In 1953 Mrs Topham opened a new racetrack within the established Grand National course, the Mildmay. The following year the Aintree motor racing circuit opened and soon gained the reputation as one of the best in the world, hosting the British Grand Prix on five occasions between 1955 and 1962. Stirling Moss won there in 1955 to score his first Grand Prix victory while Jim Clark won the '62 event. '84FH' was used extensively within the grounds of both the motor circuit and the racecourse, and can be said to have been one of the UK's earliest 'safety' or 'pace' cars.


Described as in magnificent condition,with excellent mahogany woodwork, the Phantom is finished in grey/blue over black with maroon interior, the latter equipped with two occasional seats and sliding internal division. In 2008 the engine was completely rebuilt with a new cylinder head by David Jones and Fiennes Restoration, the rebuild being fully documented and photographed. Factory building sheets and well-documented history go with the car, which last year featured in 'Motor Klassik' magazine (November 2010 edition). If you're looking for gentle cruising with the family. Then this show stopper is the one.
