1926 R-R Phantom I exhibited at Techno Classica in Essen on the stand of
BMW Classic with their description 'Windovers Tourer'. – On a
re-creation such information would not be correct.
In Hall No. 14 at 'Techno Classica', Essen (Germany) on exhibit by BMW
Group was a 1926 Rolls-Royce Phantom I. The description provided by "BMW
Classic" informed that was a Rolls-Royce Phantom I with Tourer coachwork
by Windover. The manufacturer had decided to show one single Rolls-Royce
classic car at what is marketed as "the world’s biggest classic car
fair". It might cause certain consternation if indeed the exhibition car
has been the Rolls-Royce Phantom I, chassis-no. #132LC. Fact is, the

front and rear doors rear-hinged and a three-piece windshield with
When in 1926 the car had been delivered to its 1st owner it had been a
Tourer by Windover. That is documented in the literature on the marque's
history and in that, too, on production by that particular coachbuilder.

had been erected with a different number – and at some later stage by
the manufacturer became "re-numbered".
