Originally intended as a Sedanca de Ville by Frua, plans were altered for this four door fully convertible body. Frua's design does provide several different coachwork configurations. Frua died before the body was completed and the car went to several companies who added more or less successfully to the coachbuilding's progress. In the end the English company Royle Cars Ltd. after a delay of some 20 years did finish what Frua had begun with. They succeeded in a superb finish of this most comprehensively equipped motor car.
This left hand drive car with an overall length of 6.45 m was the last Rolls-Royce Phantom VI motor car to be completed in 1992.
Rolls-Royce had ended Phantom VI production in 1991.
I am not a natural flatterer, I like to think that I "tell it like it is", politely I hope. So when I tell you that I am very impressed by the contents of your website, it is just not English politeness. I of course love the subject matter but you deal with it in an energetic and respectful manner. I am overwhelmed by the research that has gone into compiling the list of coachbuilders/bodybuilders for Europe and North America. I have never heard of the vast majority of them.
Congratulations on an excellent website.
