Three exceptional pre-war Rollers were in proud residence, with both soft-tops bringing in far more cash than the single hardtop: the 1929 Phantom I Newmarket.

All are exceptionally-desirable, but clearly some more than others.

Results for the cars featured here are included with headers noting which is which.

The real star of the show was the Henley Roadster, but the 1933 Rolls-Royce 20/25 Three-Position Drophead Coupe has many merits of its own. One quick one? This was the firm’s official 1933 Paris auto show car. A running, bespoke concept for just $192,000!

Such a deal! This is less than half the price of the current Phantom DC, it is worth noting.
