1920 Rolls Royce

4 posts in this topic

I'm researching a 1920 Rolls Royce Touring car and am trying to find out where it was manufactured and who built the body. It is a 50/40 K serial number 106FW. I know some were built in Springfield MA from 1920 or so on but am unsure if this is one of them. The owner thought it was initially bodied as some sort of delivery vehicle which makes no sense to me but you know how these stories evolve over the years. Any help where to find out this information would be appreciated.

I always believed that apart from anything else the headlamp shape was one way of identifying Springfield Ghosts. They are typically drum shape while the English cars more often than not had bell shaped lamps.

Thanks for the information. I WISH this was my car. I'm only doing research for the owner. Here are a few more pictures that hopefully will determine the exact model. Larry

By now you may have identified the Rolls, if not you may be able to identify it through the body number. Brewster and Co stamped the body number on most of the parts while it was being built. The easiest place to find it is under the chauffeur's seat. Generally, there is a wooden door under the chauffeur's seat that opens or lifts out. On the underneath side of the door Brewster stamped a four digit number. Some Brewster journals still exist and it is possible that this Rolls may be able to be identified through its body number.
