An exceptionally exciting 'find', being an open Phantom II Continental two door, two seater with dickey, with very sleek, stylish coachwork by H.J.Mulliner, aided by sweeping, open wings, a low windscreen, a beautiful set of stainless steel lamps, including P100S headlights, etc, all of which add to the overall eye-catching appearance. The comprehensive original, special order specification of the chassis, which we have copies of, shows large, 5" tachometer and speedometer, "loudest type of Bosch horn", special attention to the cooling system, and special testing of the chassis when complete. The car started life as a James Young Tourer, but the current H.J.Mulliner body, originally fitted to another PII Continental (149TA), has been on for several decades, something like two thirds of its life in fact. With one family (father & daughter) since 1960, this car is new to the market, and comes with a great deal of history, adding more to the excitement. Cosmetically in some ways very slightly shabby, but at the same time very useable in this respect, equipped with a neat cover for the compact hood which folds easily and sits low, and a tonneau cover. Very promising mechanically too, driving particularly well, with delightfully light steering, decent brakes, and with the feel of a car that will get better and better with use, following a decade or so of storage. We have just carried out some re-commissioning service work and fitted a brand new cylinder head, adding to the car's appeal (and value) and at the same time giving confidence and security for the future and contributing to the cool-running that the car enjoys. Complete with the aforementioned history file, two impressive, original tool trays, mounted either side of the boot interior, and we have now been successful in having the original, very appropriate, registration number, GY 4050, re-allocated to the car. We are unlikely to ever be able to again offer an opportunity such as this. MoT tested. Chassis No. 28MS Reg. No. GY 4050 ..Snippets: Construction, Russian Royalty, Erroneous Award & Domestic Appliances .The first owner was Robert McAlpine (1847/1934) known in the construction industry as Concrete Bob. 28MS was registered at 50 Pall Mall, London which was in fact the firms HQ and not a private residence. The car was only with the McAlpine family for a short period partially due to the fact that two generations of the family died in 1934. After WWII 28MS was rebodied as a shooting brake & was in Sierra Leone being used by Dr Geoffrey Cuthbert Tooth (1908/98) as a mobile surgery! Dr Tooth had qualified as a MRCS and a LRCP but later specialised in the field of psychology with particular interest in juvenile delinquency and produced several papers on Studies of Mental Illness in the Gold Coast. Geoffreys father Dr. Howard Henry Tooth served in WWI being stationed in Malta and Italy; during WWII Geoffrey served with the Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve. In 1958, two years after 28MS returned to the UK, Geoffrey Tooth had relocated to Teheran & married a member of the Russian Royal family - Princess Xenia Andreevna, her paternal grandfather was the 4th son of Grand Duke Michael, a grandson of Tsar Nicholas I; Princess Xenias paternal grandmother was the Grand Duchess Xenia Alexandrovna the eldest daughter of Tsar Alexander II & sister to Tsar Nicholas II. In 1956, after having been imported by J. O. Auclair the PII became the property of Major Cyril Edward Darlington who in 1949 was mistaken for Captain Charles Evan Darlington & it was reported erroneously that Cyril had had the Legion of Merit, Degree of Legionnaire conferred upon him by Harry Truman, President of the United States! A rebuttal notice was placed in The London Gazette to correct the error! By 1960 28MS was with H. R. Wilkins, the family firm of Wilkins & Mitchell dates from the early 1900s and at one stage the firm employed over 1,000 people. Wilkins & Mitchell produced machine tools, power presses and later in 1929 washing machines Servis Domestic Appliances..
