This car has an Indian connect. The then Raja (talukdar) of Nanpara (in present day Bahraich district of U.P) Syed Mohammad Saadat Ali Khan had imported a 40/50 hp (with a 7668 cc engine) Rolls-Royce Phantom Ghost I with the conventional Hooper cabriolet in 1925. This car was actually diverted to him after the original owner, an American didn’t buy for some reason.

 

The Raja (not a Maharajah, but a title given a century earlier to his predecessors by the Nawab of Oudh) somehow didn’t like the shape and decided to strip it down after some years of usage.

 

After about 10 years, the car was shipped to the famous coachbuilder from Belgium Henri Jonckheere and his son. What the father son duo created was something so unique that it was termed as the “Round Door Rolls-Royce” because of her circular doors. The best part of this car was her imposing length, oversized front grille and luscious curves while it maintained its geometric patterns.

 

Somewhere in the 1980’s this car was placed at an auction and a anonymous Japanese brought this car for a stately US$ 1.5 million.
