From 1936 to 1939 a total of 727 Phantom III chassis were produced, each of which with custom coachwork, meaning no two were alike. This example was ordered in 1937 with a formal limousine body built by the obscure English coachbuilder W.C. Atcherley. In early 1946 the car was entrusted to Freestone & Webb to design and construct new coachwork. The resulting Sedanca de Ville wowed audiences with its use of brightwork in copper and the razor-edge styling that was Freestone & Webb’s hallmark. The vehicle is often referred to at the “Copper Kettle”
