MATCHBOX ROLLS ROYCE PHANTOM V



The Rolls Royce Phantom V released in February 1964 showed several new features. It had clear windows, a cream interior with steering wheel and silver trim which had been masked sprayed rather than being applied by hand. The play value perhaps centered upon the opening boot and the spring suspension. Though this model is usually found with black plastic wheels, it was also fitted with grey and silver wheels but in much smaller numbers.

The body was painted a metallic mauve color which could vary in extremes to almost grey. This model was replaced in the 1-75 series in 1967 and so was only issued for three years.
