Dame Beaverbrook’s Rolls-Royce Phantom VI

On the 15th of January 1970, an order was placed through Mead Of Maidenhead Limited to procure a Rolls-Royce Phantom VI, outfitted with an enclosed Limousine body by H J Mulliner/Park Ward.

The order, designated as CP1714, stipulated the inclusion of fog lamps, full-width occasional seats, front and rear safety belts, and Dunlop tyres for the Phantom. A cocktail cabinet and Sundym glass were deemed unnecessary.

The car’s exterior boasted Astrakhan paintwork, complemented by Bridge Of Weir green hide and headlining, along with dark brown carpets—a distinctive choice. This ‘chocolate-and-lime’ colour scheme was notable as the racing colours of the flamboyant new owner of the Phantom, Lady Beaverbrook.

PRH4597 was duly delivered on the 28th of April 1970.

The sales invoice discloses that this refined and dignified Rolls-Royce incurred a cost slightly exceeding £11,580.00—an exorbitant sum in its era, yet a mere drop in the ocean compared to the substantial amounts Lady Beaverbrook generously bestowed during her remarkable lifetime. Lady Beaverbrook retained ownership of the car for three decades, and following her demise, it was bequeathed to the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu in 1999. There, this majestic and imposing Rolls-Royce captured the admiration of visitors for the subsequent sixteen years.
