Based upon many hours of conversations taped exclusively for ‘Inside Track’, together with other material accumulated over many years of friendship with John Lamm, Doug Nye and others, The Autobiography tells the story of Phil Hill’s life in his own words, from his childhood in 1930s California to the beginning of his later years as co-owner of the highly successful Hill & Vaughn car restoration business, a respected motor sport writer and TV commentator, and much loved elder statesman of the American vintage and classic car movement with an unrivalled knowledge, in particular, of the Packard marque and its cars.
Illustrated by numerous photographs, letters, race posters and programmes, and other automobilia from the Hill Family archive, plus many other photographs of Phil’s racing career and beyond – including his last great victory in the charismatic Chaparral 2F at Brands Hatch in 1967 – the book offers an unrivalled view of this remarkable man.
The Autobiography is hardbound with a cloth-covered case and inset photographs to match the two volumes of the Collector’s Edition, with the same page size and with some 360 pages, and will be presented in its own cloth-covered slipcase.

Inside Track: Phil Hill, Vol III : The Racing Autobiography
Just like Vol I and II, this Vol III is an absolutely superb evocation of the fifties motor racing world in splendid Kodachrome colors. By far the most beautiful motorsport-history book of my collection. Phil Hill's private collection of pictures is just awesome !
