This book has been written by an enthusiast for other enthusiasts.  It is not a commercial publication.  The Limited Edition print run of 600 copies has been written and published by Stephe Boddice for the benefit of the Rolls-Royce community.  The standard of printing, photographic reproduction and binding aims to reflect the quality that is associated with the marque.  It is hoped that the book will be a benefit not only to all Phantom III owners but also to all other car enthusiasts who appreciate the engineering ingenuity that went into building, and rebuilding, these wonderful cars.

All expenses have been bourne by the author so every purchase will help to offset the huge investment of time, effort and money that this book has absorbed.  Please phone and order a copy - I am sure that you will not be disappointed.




This book is the first comprehensive manual dealing with the Phantom III engine.  It covers virtually every task from replacing the HT leads to a complete strip down and overhaul.  The manual is privately published  by Stephe Boddice in a Limited Edition of 600 numbered copies.
