  1. My car was a very nice and driveable Phantom 1 Regent Convertible Coupe by Brewster. It was bid to $100K by Peter Kumar and sold at Bonhams to Kumar even though there was a $125K reserve. I will never deal with Bonhams again. NEVER!
  2. UNFORTUNATELY, All classic Rolls-Royces (except Silver Ghosts) are down in price right now, with even open convertible coupe Phantom 1 cars bringing no more than $100K.
  3. I have noticed that Phantom 1 Rolls-Royces do not seem to do well at auction. Why is that? They are beautiful, and well made (if any thing, they are overbuilt). Perhaps they are not very driveable.
  4. Mark Smith's cars are always spectacular, and this one is no exception. He has great taste! Peter Zobian
  5. I wouldn't mind a 1926 T roadster with wire wheels and period speed equipment.
  6. Alsancle: Yes, I think Peter Kumar of Gullwing Motor Cars bought it back, and then sold it again.
  7. I think the aluminum heads were too porous, so they tended to leak. I know my Phantom 1, S460MR, had its original aluminum head replaced with an iron head in 1960 when it was owned by John Maxfield. This was no easy job.
  8. New phone number (in Virginia) is 276-952-6126. This is an excellent factory 300SL book. Please make a near offer.
  9. PRICE REDUCED TO $30.500 or really near offer. (This is a nice almost totally original car!)
  10. Hi, Is your tail lamp an original Trilon or is it one of the recent remakes?
  11. I think one could say the same for a Brewster Regent on a Phantom 1 chassis.
