I understand that 18 cars (9 in competition and 9 in display) will be choosen. I also understand that it is unlikely that any RR's from India will participate in the competition category. This is because that have enough RR's available in the US for this category.

Congrats to Doc and Mr. Titus.

Cheers

I believe the last Phantom continental to be built is also changing her clothes in preparation for Pebble Beach. Some other owners were in fact contacted and asked if they would like to be invited but the high costs involved , not to mention the hassles made them decline the kind invite to be invited.Good luck to the entries from India. Hope they do us proud. Who knows? this show may perhaps result in cars coming here for restorations.

Great news, is it the Jodhpur Car ?

Some of your cars should have also been invited like the Banswada RR

I believe the last one should be the ex-Jodhpur (now Jetha) car.

Hi Wasif, As I said, some owners were asked if they would like to be invited. Comprende?? And they declined! And Yes. The Jodhpur phantom is getting a face lift .A gurney nutting delight.

This car truly has the looks and the flair to be on PB's lawns....it would be great if they repainted it in its original combo of greens !

There was also that Windovers DHC that is also one of the last of the Continentals right ?

Si Comprende ! What a pity that car would also have looked grand on the lawns there

The Jetha car is Chassis 62UK and the current Jodhpur PII (Windover DHC) is Chassis 80UK - so they are within a few chassis numbers

Believe 80UK was originally red - would be nice to see it back to its original livery as well. And you are right, Wasif, the current Jodhpur car should be the last one!

Notice the wheel spats below

Thanks for the pic, its a timeless design...so the wheel spats were lost

Any pics of the front as I feel there is a part of the bodywork currently missing under the grille where the two fenders should join

Faster 789's pictures are the oldest I have seen of this car.

The picture I had posted before is probably the coachbuilder's drawing / concept - so the wheel discs and spats may not have made it to the final car.

You are probably right about something missing between the front wings - look at the Holkar Duesenberg, which clearly has a cover plate. This car has rear spats too!

Obviously both cars are approximately the same vintage and coachbuilder.

Only the Jetha car is a Continental. The one you refer to is a regular PII chassis

The PII cabriolet with maharajah jodhpur is a regular PII. From the UK chassis series only three were continentals namely 5, 42, and 62. There apparently were four long wheelbase chassis used for Continentals but 80 UK was not one of them

The Jetha car would be the last continental
