This one-off Frua Drophead creation on a chassis of the top model from Rolls-Royce's hierarchy had been ordered in 1971 by H.E. Consul Simon van Kempen who resided in Switzerland.
It took until 1973 before the complete automobile was finished as the chassis had been delivered in 1971.
The date when Rolls-Royce filled the guarantee documents with the chassis-card details was 10th December 1973.
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.
