My ex boss bought one .
I think they were only building 32
The body cost about $40,000
Brookville could easily use their roadster cowl and doors, and the rear bustle from the phantom, and a bit more slice and dice to create an authentic looking 32 pheaton.
There was a article one HOTROD.COM about Brookville Roadster's thinking about adding the phaeton to their line up.
Brookville Roadsters were testing the waters for the possibility of adding a phaeton to their line of reproduction bodies. This work-in-progress by metal masters John and Tom Carambia out of Hemet, CA. was displayed in Brookville's exhibit at the 2012 LA Roadsters Father's Day show at the Fairplex in Pomona, but obviously there wasn't enough interest to put the body into production.
This is the body that was on display. HRP
MORE PHOTO'S HERE
I imagine Broovkilles decision to not pursue the 4 door phaeton body was economics. The country was in a manufacturing slowdown about that time and many of the bigger spenders were tightening their wallets. I wish I could find my pictures of the side and front profiles of the 4 door tub I took at the LARS
Gary, if you will click on the red link I posted it will take you to the article and there are several photo's of the body, I tried to download them but I was unable to do so, thus the link. HRP
Here you go, enjoy.
The phaeton they should have built is a lot more attractive than the one they did build
Charlie had this one for sale 3 years ago.
Solid car, silent engine, but too expensive for me.
I did get the rear luggage rack from it.
Don't recall where he said it went.
This beautiful restored version belongs to Michael Driskell, ThirdGen Automotive.
Was it a genuine US style luggage rack or the aftermarket style which we got in Australia? Scritch's car had the Aussie style rack but he found and fitted the US style.
It's the Aussie style. I seem to remember that is the car's origin and it was converted to RHD.
Thanks Fordors, I new I hadn't dreamed that.
