Rolls Royce New Phantom Cabriolet de Ville by Van Rijswijk, circa 1927. Another pic of this car (different angle) appears in 'Ghost, Phantoms & Spectres' by W.J.Oldham.

Van Rijswijk on a Silver Ghost with an early twenties scaphandrier body with lines towards Labourdette as well as Kellner. It lacks a certain panache in the mudguards, but these may have been carried forward from the first body on this chassis as this was lamost certainly a 1912/3 chassis. Few Rolls-Royce motor cars were supplied to either the Netherlands or Belgium before the Great War, but this car could hve been purchased as a used one, of course. The (expensive) Stephen Grebel headlamps are noteworthy.

1924 Amsterdam 'RAI' Motor Show. The Silver Ghost on the left obviously is a Windovers bodied car, but the the 'Twenty' Limousine de Ville on the right was bodied by Van Rijswijk. Perhaps boybentley can enlighten us on the chassis nrs? I wonder if the Windovers car was an order for the Dutch market as a Cabriolet body would be quite an unusual choice as a Rolls Royce press car? The representative in those years was AGAM in the Hague, who later became the Mercedes-Benz importer in the Netherlands

Although it's described as rebodied by Labourdette, it must be the same car.
