1937 Rolls Royce P III Sedanca de Ville
Vin: 3CM61 Engine V-12 #R98L This magnificent Rolls was produced on Sept. 22, 1937 by Rolls Royce and Park Ward Body Works. It was one of only two built. The sister car (3CP192) was shown at the London Motor Show that year. Although very formal, yet quite sporty, the body design had a raked windscreen and flowing fenders with sculptured rear spats. It was accented with applied cane work matching the quilted bleached maple interior wood accents and cabinetry. When completed, the Rolls was sold to J.D. Clarke of London and retained until 1947. It stayed in London over the next 30 years with several owners. In 1978, the Rolls was sold to Tom Barrett of Scottsdale, Arizona and then acquired by the Blackhawk Museum for display. The Rolls has always been well maintained and the restoration done by Blackhawk is a testament to the quality of this great Sedanca de Ville. Truly ready to show or tour in style !!! Interesting trades always considered.
