The Art of Automotive Engineering: The 1933 Rolls-Royce Phantom II Continental Drophead Coupe

The Rolls-Royce Phantom II Continental Drophead Coupe was a car produced by Rolls-Royce in the 1930s. The car, which was made in small quantities, was regarded as one of the automotive legends of the 1930s.

This vehicle was manufactured in a number of models by several coachbuilders, including Freestone & Webb and Thrupp & Maberly. Rolls-Royce displayed the vehicle at the 1933 Paris Salon.

A 7.7-liter inline-six engine supplied power to the Rolls-Royce Phantom II Continental Drophead Coupe. The engine was capable of producing 120 horsepower. A true 100 mph was achievable with the car's small 144-inch chassis, 5.25:1 compression, and higher axle ratio.

From 1929 to 1936, Rolls-Royce built the Rolls-Royce Phantom II. In 1930, the Continental version of the Phantom II was released. The Continental was a long-distance touring-focused, high-performance variant of the Phantom II.

This Phantom II Continental, chassis 3MW, is one of the most important and historically fascinating Rolls-Royces ever produced.

Only three Phantom II Continentals were equipped with drophead "sedanca" coupe bodies, and this particular vehicle is the first of those three. This car featured an open front seat and a closed rear passenger compartment.
