If you wonder where the famous film actor and producer Sir Stanley Baker traveled in during his glory days, here it is: a beautiful state-of-the-art, ultra-exclusive Rolls-Royce Phantom VI Limousine by Mulliner Park Ward. The car was delivered new on February 4, 1969 by P.J. Evans Ltd, Birmingham. No more than 374 copies of them were built between 1968 and 1991. But only one of them has been in possession of the Welsh movie star. This is the one.
The history tells us too that the Rolls-Royce has been silver in the past. The former owner, who bought the Phantom in North Wales in 2000, decided to completely repaint the classic limousine 10 years ago. And changed the body color into chic dark blue. We can fully understand why: no exterior color that suits the Rolls as good as this one.
The extremely royal coachwork (built in London by Mulliner Park Ward) and elegant shape of the Phantom VI matches perfectly to the dark tint. Moreover, various chrome parts, including the prominent front grille, contrast gorgeously with the rest of the bodywork. If we have to put it all together in one word? Magnificent.
Reason number two to change the color is the completely original interior. After all, the inside is provided with blue leather upholstery and blue carpets: beautifully in line with the outside of the British top-class limo. The roof is gray, referring to the original exterior color.
Furthermore, the entire RR-inner gives a feeling of immense luxury and eternal style. With lots of wood, extraordinary finishes, high quality materials and of course more space than you could ever dream of. Besides, what is a Rolls without exceptional features such as a Wine Cabinet? An option you will not find in today’s brochures. Lap Diagonal Safety Belts on both front seats point out that Sir Stanley Baker liked his driver a lot. Or he must have got behind the steering wheel himself…
We can imagine that he did so, looking at the outstanding condition of this unique car. The 6.2 liter V8 is one of the finest engines in automotive history, so it’s not quite a punishment to drive it your own. The automatic transmission is the pinnacle of suppleness too. The Phantom floats over the asphalt like a flying carpet. Really everything is focused on maximum comfort.
Number VI of the legendary model is the last generation with a separate chassis. This makes the car even more special. The technique has recently been revised and fully prepared. That’s how the classy limo gives you the same exceptional feeling while driving it as the time he transported a movie star.
