1933 Gurney Nutting Rolls-Royce Phantom II Faux Cabriolet ...
Making Progress ... Construction On Hold For The Winter ...

Gurney Nutting was one of the preferred coachbuilders for Rolls-Royce cars. They were responsible for some of the most elegant bodies that clothed the Phantom II chassis. Their early-30s faux cabriolet design (really a two-door coupe) is particularly striking. It manages to be respectable, handsome and elegant. Those were good reasons to attempt a 1:8 scale model.
