Description
 

By Martin Bennett with tables by Bernard L. King. The Rolls-Royce Phantoms IV, V and VI totaled fewer than 1,000 cars. They were their maker's top of the range models. The very rare Phantom IV in particular was very special, and although pictures of them are rarely seen, this book includes more than 100 illustrations of that model alone, so that the reader can see what all eighteen cars looked like. There are even coachbuilders' drawings of Phantom IVs that were proposed but never actually built!

Besides the 'standard' Mulliner Park Ward Phantom V and VI, there are detailed illustrations of the less numerous coachwork styles including one-off designs, as well as the many variations specified by customers to otherwise standard designs.

A chapter on the coachbuilders provides a history of each Phantom coachbuilder and illustrations of coachwork under construction. The various Phantom IV, V and VI Owners' Handbooks and Supplements are described and illustrated. Each individual Phantom IV, V and VI motor car is listed by chassis number in comprehensive tables compiled by well-known 'listologist' Bernard King, with such details as engine number, coachwork details, delivery date and original owner, and there is a U.K. registration number/chassis number cross-reference table allowing cars seen at Rallies and the like to be identified.

Martin Bennett was born in Gloucestershire, England in 1949, and still spends time there despite living in Australia for most of his life. He is the author of a number of successful books on Rolls-Royce and Bentley cars, notably Rolls-Royce and Bentley: The Crewe Years and Bentley Continental. Martin was also editor of the Rolls-Royce Owner's Club of Australia journal, Praeclarum, for twenty years, He owns two Bentleys, an S1 James Young saloon and a T series saloon.
