Rolls Royce Merlin Dispatch Vehicle

 I spotted this "truck" on Bring a Trailer. Too cool not to share.

"This 1939 Rolls Royce Phantom (chassis 3DL70) is offered with little information on its eBay listing, but some quick Googling reveals it was recently custom built from a non-running donor car in order to replicate the factory truck Rolls used to deliver finished Merlin V12 aircraft engines during WWII. The quality of work seems to be very good, and we love that the bed was donated from a 30’s Ford pick-up. Find it here on eBay in Saint Augustine, Florida for $150k OBO."
