English coachbuilder Freestone & Webb was founded in 1923 by V.E. Freestone who learned the trade at Crossley Motors and A.J. Webb who trained in France. The company was based in workshops in North London and is known for the bodies they made for Rolls-Royce and Bentley. Freestone & Webb started showing their designs at the London Motor Show and the factory delivered up to 15 cars each year. The coachbuilder started experiencing financial difficulties when Rolls-Royce started to make complete cars indoors after World War II. A.J. Webb passed away in 1955 and the business was taken over by the Swain Group in 1957.
Aside from their many designs for Bentley and Rolls-Royce, Freestone & Webb created bodies for Alfa Romeo, Packard and Mercedes-Benz. Freestone & Webb has been credited for developing the Top hat style and popularizing the Razor Edge style. The coachbuilder won the Gold Medal in the private coachbuilders competition nine years in a row. Freestone & Webb designs are very desirable nowadays and have a lot of value.
