1932 Rolls Royce Phantom II Open Tourer by Barker, on a left hand drive chassis (!) 223AMS which was delivered to the President of Poland, Marshall Josef Pilsudski in October 1932. Its specification included very loud horns. Pilsudski died in 1935, and the car was then probably used by succeeding presidents. Disappeared without trace, probably in the war.

Thanks for the info, where did you get such details?
Some clarification: Piłsudski was never a Polish president (in fact he rejected this position when offered later), he was "only" the chief-of-state in the war-torn Poland right after the Great War (roughly speaking during the Polish-Soviet war). Later a Marshall of Poland (highest military rank), General Inspector of the Armed Forces / Minister of Military Affairs. This post (and looks that the car as well, LOL) was taken after his death by Rydz-Śmigły. But at the same time our president was travelling in Cadillac. Not sure what the prime minister used... ;)

Same car in a newsreel from next month:

According to datas from 12.09.1938, at the time, prime minster F.S. Składkowski used 1933 Chrysler Custom CL with open body (reg. number 7879)
