This is the definitive guide to original factory equipment with close-up illustrations of bodywork, interior and mechanical details. This book reveals, in words and color photographs, how each model changed through the course of production. Rolls-Royce's policy of continual refinement means that a vast number of specification changes occurred for each model. Completely authentic specification can be elusive because many of these cars have been altered by owners unconcerned with originality, often seeking merely to keep their treasured possessions running without incurring the expense of genuine parts. Original Rolls-Royce & Bentley 1946-65 provides owners, restorers and enthusiasts with details of exactly what changed and when.

You'll see detailed descriptions of the chassis, steering, rear axle, suspension, brakes, wheels, tires, engine, carburetors, fuel system, transmission, fuses, Dynamo, lighting, direction indicators, starter motor, ignition coils, body, and interior. Also included are detailed charts describing the Continental S-Series Bodies, Continental S3 Bodies, Coachbuilt bodies, as well as the paint & interior trim, Identification numbers, Dating figures, and production figures.

Drawing on factory records, parts lists, catalogues and other data now held by the Sir Henry Royce Memorial Foundation, the author has provided a meticulous survey of the standard steel cars built at Crewe. Over 250 specially commissioned color photographs, showing the detail changes to these cars, accompany the authoritative text and provide a valuable reference source. This HARDOUND guide has 160 pages, and is in NEW CONDITION! Original Rolls-Royce & Bentley is indispensable for all owners, restorers, buyers and enthusiasts. Buy now to find out the details that will make your Rolls a true original!
