Captain Sir Malcolm Campbell was a rare breed in that he was one of the few land speed record holders of his era to die of natural causes. Famed for racing cars named Bluebird, this racing legend and motoring journalist also owned a specially built 1933 Rolls-Royce Phantom II Continental with touring coachwork by Barker and now it is for sale for £220,000 ($326,000, €298,000).

Described in an article by Sir Malcolm as “the best Rolls-Royce yet”, the car allegedly was subsequently gifted by his family to the Royal Air Force and then spent time in America. It has been restored at lavish cost over a three-year period and has a new blue leather interior and metallic Saxe Blue paintwork.

 

The car is for sale through Richard Biddulph of Vintage & Prestige Fine Motor Cars in Grays, Essex.

    1. Disconnected jottings

      Rara avis – car and driver, both

      Martin Summers has / had his marvellous petrol powered yacht moored at Cadogan Pier, and a room at his house in Glebe Place devoted to Sir Malcolm Campbell

      Not everyone knows that the Bluebird building housed the Bluebird record breaking car, and that Sir Malcolm Campbell was a prominent Lloyd’s operator

      Oh, and Lord Antony Rufus Isaacs – a producer of ‘ Nine and half weeks ‘ is Donald Campbell’s godson

    2. Wish I had my fathers 1936 RR 20/25 with Park Ward Coach work. Sadly he sold it while I was serving in N.Ireland in 1971. I was shocked. He subsequently got a 1955 Wolesley 4/44. I owned it later and found that to be a real cracker of a car.
