From the Beaulieu encyclopedia of the automobile: Coachbuilding:

Meulemeester - France - 1930-Ca.1936

Carrosserie Automobile Meulemeester Frères, Clichy
Experiencied metalworkers, Meulemeester made its first car bodies in 1930 on Delahaye and Peugeaot chassis. A Peugeot 301 'Straemliner' was exhebited in 1933, leading to a Peugeot contract for buiding all the 301 cabriolets. In 1935 Meulemeester also introduced a very British-style open tourer on a Peugeot 601 basis, with elbow cutouts on top of the doors.

This is what I have found in the Beaulieu encyclopedia of the automobile: Coachbuilding:

Rungette (F) c.1911-1931
Jules Rungette, levallois-Perret, Seine
Production began in approximaly 1911 with a line of luxe bodies for high priced chassis. The company had a small but stable activity throughout the 1920s, holding a Baehr-construction license from 1921, but went under in 1931.

Janoir (F) 1925-1939
Carrosserie Janoir, St. Quen, Siene.
Like many others, Janoir used the Baehr patent convertible body in 2- and 4-door forms. One of the most popular chassis was Delage, and they continued to make a small number of conservative bodies up to the outbreak of WW II

Busson (F) c.1926-1933
Auto-Carrosserie Guillaume Busson, Nanterre, Seine.
Originally established in Levallois-Perret, Guillaume Busson moved to Rue des Bases Fontalles at Nanterre in 1928, where he produced body work of great styling originality on Citroën, Chénard-Wamcker, Panhard, Sizaine Frères, Rolls-Royce and Bugatti. He declared bancrupcy in 1933 and joined Gaston Grummer.

Next was Wood & Pickett of London (the original company) establised in 1947, but wasnt registred as W&P untill early 60ies, when they moved to Park Royal. I know the "name" still exsist, but I want to mominate the REAL W&P, from before the sale, when Bill Wood and Les Pickett, still owned the company, and Eddie Collins (former Radford) were maneging director. Here is a picture with some of their work, a few Minis & a nice Rolls Royce.

Just some notes: there isn't any evidence of some italian coachbuilders (Ansaloni, Coriasco, Cattelan, Fona, Mantelli, OSI, Pietroboni, Volpi and others). I can provide to write something, but i can't open a new section.
There also coachbuilders specialized in bus, like Barbi, Romanazzi, Viberti and others, if you are interested in these type of vehicles.

Viberti was specialized in bus bodies but bodied some touring cars - I remember an Alfa Romeo 6C in the last 20s.

Anyone who knows something about Italian Carrozzeria Sirio which built this particular Panhard Dyna X?
I saved those pics a long time ago, but in the mean time the source seems to be broken.

To get registered as an independent car manufacturer is very easy in Germany. Any tuner can do that.
So far, Arden has done nothing that applies to special coachbuilding.

BTW, welcome to this Coachbuilding community!

Thank you ,
I have to say that i am very passionated with your designs and creations.
I'm also industrial designer.
Maybe Arden isn't, but I think that Lotec is.
Thay have older model LOTEC Ambassadeur on Mercedes W126 (alte S-Klasse) chasses.
And that could be maybe coachbuild.
:))
