Rolls-Royce Phantom III - bodywork: panels



Next page


PIII stripped o/s The bodywork finally laid bare.  The whole structure was found to be in amazingly good condition.  None of the ash frame was either split or rotten;  the aluminium paneling was free from corrosion or denting.  Two small cracks were evident on the flange for the rear number plate aperture; these were ground out and welded.
PIII scuttle This under-bonnet section of the scuttle is the only steel on the body and was completely rust-free.
PIII windscreen drain On either side if the windscreen aperture there is a small drainage groove to allow accumulated water to run to the outside of the car, away from the ash frame.
