The First Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost



The First Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost


With reference to the excellent photograph of the 1907 Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost, registration AX 201 as shown in your Golden Jubilee issue of MOTOR SPORT, I have often wondered whether or not the registration number of this famous vehicle is, in fact, correct.

The reason for this: I have a photo of a Ghost at the Mitchell Motor Works & Garage taken around 1912 with its registration clearly shown as AX 210.

Is it possible that there were two Ghosts of this period with such similar registrations?
