Delivered to the original owner in February of 1931, this Phantom II has had quite the lifetime across the globe. Chassis number 137GY was originally built as a Pullman Limousine by Barker, and spent approximately 38 years in Britain before it exchanged owners several times in California. In 1986 the car was purchased by a buyer in Western Australia and was subjected to a major restoration where the body was changed to a Park Ward style four seat coupe.
