Pebble Beach 2017
P & A Wood attended Pebble Beach this year with the 1936 Rolls-Royce Phantom III Chassis No. 3AX79. The famous “Monty’s Rolls”- Stunning, unique and an innovative design by de Havilland Aircraft, built by H.J. Mulliner.
The car has been turning heads in the workshops at P & A Wood, Great Easton, for almost three years whilst it has been undergoing an extensive sympathetic restoration and won it’s class, which is an incredible achievement at what is considered the most prestigious Concours event in the world.
We must thank the owners of the car, Mr & Mrs Robet, for giving us the opportunity to complete the work.
So, for the last three years running, a P & A Wood restored car has won the Pre-War Rolls-Royce class at Pebble Beach. But not only that, they have all been Rolls-Royce Phantom III’s, the most complex Rolls-Royce’s ever built.
The three cars in question are all exceptional and have done us, along with their owners, very proud.
Paul Wood said ‘I am quite sure that to have three Phantom III’s win the class over three consecutive years could be a record, we are thrilled but could not do it without the customers who require the cars restored to Pebble Beach standards’.
P & A Wood are hoping to be back at Pebble Beach next year, but they are not planning to take another Phantom III!
