As both a specific car model in a series of the same name, the Silver Ghost was manufactured in Manchester during 1908. By 1921 the production had moved to Springfield, Massachusetts. The specific chassis used was labeled number 60551, and was registered as AX 201. With such a unique chassis and frame the vehicle was awarded its own, distinct name. Through this model, Rolls-Royce was moving forward to self proclaim they had created “the best car in the world.” Other brands and drivers may have differing views, but Rolls-Royce was determined. The Silver Ghost prototype was only the 12th 40/50 hp vehicle to be constructed at the time.
