Rolls-Royce and Bentley relied upon standardised body designs after
1945, but for the next two decades both marques also supplied chassis
frames separately, and it was possible to have these clothed with
coachwork by bespoke coachbuilders like, for example, Mulliner, Park
Ward and James Young in Britain, or Graber, Farina and Franay in Europe.
Many buyers took this route, and this highly illustrated book bears
witness to the wide variety of styles that were built in this
fascinating period. Chassis number lists for each coachbuilder, both in
Britain and overseas, identify their creations, to make this a
comprehensive and essential companion for anyone interested in
Rolls-Royce and Bentley in the postwar era. Coachwork on Rolls-Royce and
Bentley, 1945-1965 joins the author’s recent work Coachwork on Derby
Bentleys 1933-1940 in our list. Coachwork on Rolls-Royce and Bentley,
1945 - 1965 details customized coachwork for vehicles built on
Rolls-Royce and Bentley chassis.
