One should hope that any seals used at this point in time would be ones that are composed of materials that are compatible with any of the currently available types of antifreeze. These materials do exist and are now the de facto standard.

One should not be having to think about the type of antifreeze one is using with what amounts to a new engine. If one does it can be chalked up to very bad design decisions. I doubt that this sort of lack of consideration would be at play here since Mr. Boddice has already been down that road in the past.

I have checked back at the Phantom Engineering website a few times and found no more updates. Very interesting place to spend some time, though.
I got to see my first PIII actually run back in April at the Branson collector car auction. it seemed quite a Car. The idle was soooo smmmooooth.
I KNOW it had some torque!
My friend bought a Pierce-Arrow V-12 at this same auction and is it fine!

Randy,

That is one thing that really does strike me about Rolls-Royce engines from the classic era. They are so quiet, and definitely live up to the marketing of their time.

A correctly sorted engine of this vintage is much quieter than those of the Shadow & SZ series, at a minimum. I've never been around enough Cloud/S series cars "in listening mode" to compare them to the Phantom.

At one point there was a local car restorer, and he did *high* end cars, that had a P-III under restoration at his shop that I got to see "in parts." At the time there was a slightly earlier vintage Cadillac and Pierce Arrow as well.

As far as P-III engine blocks go, I imagine these are a very low demand and high dollar item and that updates to the site would be (and have been) very infrequent.

Brian, my S2 was no quieter than my SZ. I think the six cylinder cars are the most silent of the breed. I do have an acquaintance in Fredericksburg with a PIII, and that is a quiet motor too. The PIII's are an amazing auto to see and ride in.
