I have this Stearns Knight Militare for sale on this site.  It has the big six cylinder sleeve valve engine in it.  It is in storage and is original.

California in the early 50's. Probably lurking in a garage near you.IMG_1140.thumb.jpg.f323dbef6a789047a1039a81b7537b65.jpg

Peter Kumar is selling this Huntington PII.   Same as the Huntington that Tom Laferriere sold except Tom's was fully sorted and had an open quarter window.

Colgate Family Owned 1931 Rolls-Royce Phantom II Huntington Left-Hand Drive Limousine with Coachwork by BrewsterThis 1931 Rolls-Royce Phantom II Huntington with Coachwork by Brewster was first owned by the Colgate family, founder of Colgate Toothpaste. One of a total of just 125 left hand drive Phantom IIs manufactured. A rare and much prized left-hand-drive AJS-AMS Phantom II with an unusual blind rear quarter, a unique and attractive design for a Huntington. First owned by Mrs. Romulus Riggs Colgate, wife of Romulus Riggs Colgate who was the grandson of the founder of a soap and perfume business that would later become most well-known for its toothpaste. Romulus Colgate made his fortune in the hydro-electric generation business and the manufacture of lead-based paint under the brand "Dutch Boy" and was the owner of a 12,000-square-foot mansion in Litchfield, CT. A fascinating car, which needs a gentle and sympathetic touch to bring it back to life. The car wears an older metallic paint job in good usable condition and has presentable chrome as well. New front chauffeurs compartment with new upholstery. With some attention, the original rear interior is still serviceable with only the rear jump-seats needing re-upholstering. A complete car that's structurally sound and was last running just 2-3 years ago. Offered with excellent ownership documentation regarding the Colgate family connection.LHD Rolls-Royce Phantom II Huntington LimousineCoachwork by Brewster & Co.Chassis no. 216AJSBody no. 7392 First owned by the Colgate Family 1 of 125 left hand drive Phantom II's built A rare and much prized LHD AJS-AMS Phantom II Unusual and attractive Huntington design with Coachwork by BrewsterPrice: $95,000

A little harsh in the rear quarter given belt molding retained of a traditional sedan - looks originally done that way or could be a recycled body by Brewster or Inskips. 

 

And then you have the cylinder head issue of being replaced or not. 

 

And unfortunately, market will not support that pricing.

Looks to have a nice original interior in rear

And, looks to be nicely redone in front - and also nice original dash and hardware

Somehow I feel like that will still turn out to be 100k.

 

Here is a view of 251AJS which is also a Huntington.   You can see the rear quarter treatment.   The RR club will have a good records of this car including early pictures potentially.

Yes, if it needs a 20K + cylinder head replacement/work matched to any other issues. As dad would say "great car for someone else."

This is an earlier style Dover body, though i always though the car had good looks matched to liking the colors on it.

A friend and I were talking today that the cheapest place to buy certain cars is actually at auction.    Mark Hyman paid 75k all in at RM Amelia for this and now has it for sale for 99k.    I saw it in person and it is very attractive.

Very attractive car.  I'm not a Rolls guy, but I like that.  (No, no, I don't have space, just ask my wife.)

Move one state east and you can put up a 30 car garage for 50k.
