This Rolls-Royce Phantom III chassis was delivered to the Brussels dealer Andre Pisart for Jean Francqui, who ordered this two-door coupe by Vesters & Neirinck of Brussels. The unique design blends English razor-edged coachwork with Continental touches. It is one of only eight two-door closed bodied PIIIs and, underlining its rather sporty nature, the only PIII to be fitted with a tachometer. Before World War II it was used by the King of Belgium, and toward the end of the war it was used by Field Marshall Bernard Montgomery after Belgium was liberated.

• 1995 RROC First in Class


This 1937 Rolls-Royce Phantom III Vesters & Neirinck Coupe chassis was delivered on September 1, 1937 to Brussels dealer, Andre Pisart, S.A. for Mr. Jean Francqui. After being bodied by Vesters & Neirinck of Brussels, the car was delivered to Mr. Francqui on May 7, 1938. This is one of eight two-door closed bodied PIII's and is believed to be the first without a 'B' pillar. A ground-up restoration was done to the car in 1994.
