Mr. Allen Swift of West Hartford, Massachusetts died in October 25, 2005 at the age of 102. While living 102 is remarkable in and of itself, his automobile may have been even more impressive. While Mr. Swift's brother went to college, Allen stayed with his father to look after the family business. In appreciation his father rewarded him by buying him a new two-tone green 1928 Phantom I, S273 FP Rolls-Royce (built at the Springfield, Massachusetts factory).
Mr. Swift remained the sole owner, putting 170,000 miles on the car, until August 2005, when he donated $1 million dollars to the Springfield History Museum along with his automobile.
