Rolls-Royce Phantom III was the most advanced and complex chassis the
company produced before the modern era and, until the advent of the
Rolls-Royce Silver Seraph in 1998, their only V-12 powered car. There were a scant
727 V-12 Phantom III chassis constructed from 1936 to 1939, each with a
splendid coachbuilt body from the world’s finest body makers, the last
of the great classic-era motorcars.
The factory did not produce a repair manual. Hence the Phantom III
Technical Society was formed in 1971, offering technical advice,
publications, reproduction parts and maintenance items to owners and
enthusiasts of the Rolls-Royce Phantom III. Through the efforts of its
members and helpful factory personnel, the Society has compiled a 34-issue
workshop manual, Spectre. It covers virtually every aspect of restoring
and maintaining the Phantom III chassis.
Since 1971 a yearly newsletter has been published by the Society. This
has now evolved into the biannual technical digest, PHANTOMS, and covers
the Rolls-Royce Phantom III and the Society’s newest interest: the
25/30 H.P. Wraith.
Membership in the Society is encouraged for all drivers or admirers of
these Rolls-Royce motor cars. Dues are currently US$27 per year which
includes two issues of PHANTOMS, regular supplements and access to all the
Society's offerings. Join today!
