|Panhard Dyna Roadster, the very last Van Rijswijk|
The sweet little Roadster pictured here is a Panhard Dyna bodied by Van Rijswijk. It was the very last body the Dutch coachbuilder ever made...
Van Rijswijk was a Dutch coachbuilder located in The Hague. After manufacturing various leather goods for horses and carriages, the company started to build car bodies in the year 1903. Between the wars they mainly focussed on coachwork manufacturing on the chassis of luxury brands like Bugatti, Isotta-Fraschini, Excelsior, Rolls-Royce and more. Prince Hendrik of Holland owned a Van Rijswijk bodied Minerva and Queen Wilhelmina had her own Spyker built by Van Rijswijk. In the late '30s Van Rijswijk mainly worked with American chassis like Ford, Buick, Packard, Nash and Chevrolet. After World War II the bodyshop made a living by doing the necessary repairs of car bodies.
