In the 1970’s, the Inskip body and Von Ribbentrop’s P III were discovered in a barn in Maryland by the former chairman of the Phantom III society, Bob Shaffner. Mr. Shaffner arranged for the purchase of the new (at the time) Inskip body to Dr. G.W. Beckett of Portland, Texas. Dr. Beckett removed the Windovers body from 3AX163 and installed the Inskip. Mr. Shaffner subsequently purchased the car after Dr. Beckett’s work had been completed. The current Chairman of the Phantom III society stated that he did, in fact, hear of Von Ribbentrop’s ownership.

In 1994 at the Philadelphia Rolls-Royce Owners Club event, 3AX163 was judged 91.75 points, while taking the Blenheim award.
