Labourdette Rolls-Royce Phantom III Vutotal Cabriolet 1939/1947
7.8/10 rating (9 votes)
No video selected.


This Rolls-Royce Phantom III first appeared with a Hooper Sedanca de Ville body in 1939.
It was shown at the Brussels, Geneva and London motor shows and at the Rolls-Royce stand at the 1939 New York Fair.

The car was rebodied in 1947 by Labourdette of Paris on commission by the flamboyant Louis Ritter.
This Phantom III was the Labourdette's last and arguably most daring work.
The body alone cost $44,000.- which made it one of the most expensive of its time.

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.
