    I'm "thumbs down"-ing this video. Snide & uninformed. Grading the old Rolls in comparison to current vehicles is ridiculous. Note: power seats, windows, & door locks were not new in the '70s. Also, that is probably not a Rolls-Royce steering wheel and the extensive comments on it were silly. The large trunk was very unusual? No, it wasn't. High beam switches triggered by your foot were standard at that time. My parents' vehicles had them. I wish my cars had them.
    Doug, this review was surprisingly disappointing. The snide/snarky attitude ruined it.

    I will give this car a 1/10 for styling because it’s ugly.

    It's amazing to me how few technological features this car had. When you compare it to American luxury cars of the time that had power everything, and features like automatic climate control and ride control, this Rolls was far behind. Still a very stylish car though.

    10:16 I remember from Top Gear India Special when James May had his Rolls Royce Shadow. I believe that's there to make sure that the buzzer used to warn the driver if something fails is still working. Otherwise, I have no idea.

    Hey Doug, I'd love to see you do some reviews on old cars from AMC. You could start a line of videos on classic vehicles.

    the Rolls boot is so large because back then the rich liked to socialise an awful lot and a British toff doesnt head out to a pic Nic with a basket and a blanket they needed to carry tabels chairs baskets of food changes of clothes golf clubs cricket wear including for the staff too and all this had to go into the boot you couldn't ask his lord and ladyship to hold a basket on their lap . .the reason for the square mirror is the wider view for the offside simple as that .

    When the switch for you brights was on the floor it was very easy. You could just tap them to flash or push a bit harder to turn the brights on. It was actually easier than using your hand.
    Think about driving a mountain road. Just tap your foot for brights, another tap to dim. No taking your hands off the wheel. Before auto dimming features, the floor button was actually very handy. The window switches were also standardized. The furthest back is back seat passenger (the farthest from the driver) The third one back was back seat, behind driver (closer to driver) the second switch was front seat passenger (even closer to the driver) and, of course, the first one was for the drivers window. In the day that was not confusing at all.
    They did lots of things differently in older cars. Some of those things weren't well thought out but many things were.

    very interested in the lack of ergonomic thought in the switches. Down for ON for example. Down for higher fan speed. Very unintuitive!

    I think the blue/black color combo is hurting this car's appearance. The beige/brown or white/brown cars are very elegant. And this particular vehicle was obviously not taken care of.

    you know what would be funny? ... the next time you review a rolls royce or something super fancy- you ride in the back seat and have the owner drive you around, and call him "Jeeves". you wear a top hat and a monocle (in conjunction with the ole t-shirt), and act like a super snooty rich guy while taking advantage of the car's features. and while at a stop light, roll down the window and ask the neighboring fancy car passenger if they have any grey poupon. that woud be a riot.

    Yes ..even that British larrikin J Clarkson used to dress accordingly when reviewing a Bentley or Rolls Royce automobile.. Unfortunately Doug who is dressed by Mark Zuckerberg just sometimes fails to 'get it"..or just does not care ?

    The Spirit of Ecstasy doesn't actually have wings. It depicts a woman leaning forward with a gown/some type of garment draped over her arms, gusting in the wind.

    Regarding having your high-beam switch on the floor which you pressed with your foot, my father owned a mid-80’s Ford F250 truck that used the same method for turning on the high-beams. I think the idea was that the switch being on the floor made it easier to turn off the high-beams temporally when passing other cars on the road, something that was not a concern with the regular headlights.

    these are worth far more (45 - 100 K) when pristine....only beaten out examples like the one you were showing are cheap (but when buying this rolling restoration project for 15k, don´t forget the 16k to overhaul the braking system...and the 10k for a perfect european quality respray)
    The Ashtray in front is btw. self emptying and a serviced engine is so silent, you have to check twice if it´s running

      "10k for a european quality respray". I think you can safely triple that.

    No. Those "panels" on the roof are deliberate, they mimic a convertible top and most all applications on cars did it the same way.

      You should change your last name to Turnip. cant remember MK Is have vinyl but yes lots of Mk IIs including the 1600 E. The problem with that is that this car was introduced way before in 1965.

    In 1973 there was a Rolls Royce Phantom. It was the Phantom IV . This is of the same line as the Modern Ghost - the mid-line Rolls.
