Rolls-Royce Phantom III Cabriolet: the perfect vintage gift
Dear Santa: this ultra glamorous 1939 Rolls-Royce Phantom III Cabriolet is on the top of our Christmas wish list. It’s impossible to not be rendered to its sexy, sleek lines achieved byHenri Labourdette, who designed this object of fantasy in France right before the war. Surely sitting in one of these will beckon us back to the days of Art Deco.
The 1939/47 Rolls-Royce Phantom III “Vutotal” Cabriolet by Labourdette is now in the John Rich Museum collection, started off as a standard Phantom III designed by Henry Royce. It was re-envisioned by coachbuilder Hooper and Co. in 1938 with a Sedanca de Ville body style, then showed off in Europe before being tweaked for the U.S. market.
