90% sure it's a Springfield Phantom I with the cylindrical headlamps.

Hey, Junkman, someone took you by the word! :)

With your consent I'll lengthen the sentence:
It is a Rolls-Royce Phantom I made in Springfield, USA.

Out of curiosity I checked my sources and can tell that there are makers with 'Springfield' in their name: Buffalo-Springfield, Kelly-Springfield Motor Truck Co., Springfield Coach, and Springfield Steam. Just some extra info at midnight. :)

Hi Park-ward, how did you get the chassis number? There are currently no lists available for Springfield cars, except De Campis "RR In America" which offers an Appendix with chassis-lists, but that could not lead so far...Tell me your secret ;-)

There's no secret, only 40 years' experience with coachbuilt Rolls-Royces and a database. By the way, I have corrected countless mistakes made by you and others on this web site. Please read again the advice given by the webmasters : "If you suggest a new name or year for a vehicle, and that you are not 100% sure of what you suggest, please mention it. Using for example "?" or "I guess", "I think", etc. So we know if we can trust the info without checking or not." I think it is good advice because non-specialists may take your word for granted and perpetuate the mistakes, which we don't want, do we ?

The problem is even when one thinks that he is right/specialist, some day he will find another better specialist that may discover some mistakes ;)

Personnellement, je serai assez tenté de suivre park-ward. Dans son profil, il y a un lien avec son site. Après m'y être baladé, je pense que c'est le meilleur spécialiste que nous ayons eu depuis longtemps. Jusqu'à ce qu'un autre arrive... :lol: Mais pour l'instant, je pense qu'on peut lui faire confiance. Et puis moi j'aime bien les spécialistes, tant qu'ils ne se prennent pas pour LE spécialiste. ;)

Depuis longtemps je ne sais pas, on a quand même quelques connaisseurs en Rolls-Royce & Bentley maintenant sur le site, les "précédents" semblant plus à l'aise avec les modèles plus récents...

It is wonderful to have such experts as yourself on a board whose members have a great variety of all possible charcteristics. I have heeded your warning, and will use these cues more often. I believe we still have to settle for 95% accuracy on non-RR(!) vehicles.

To paraphrase Ray Bradbury in Fahrenheit 451, books are one way to get information that is found in life. This board is a great way for information from personal experience to be shared with others. Thank you again.

Dieu merci, LE spécialiste n'existe pas et je ne souhaite surtout pas être celui là, ni donner de leçons.. je me suis contenté de rappeler aux utilisateurs du forum les règles de base de l'Information, suggérées par nos modérateurs ;o), car si des erreurs - et elles étaient nombreuses ! - n'avaient pas été relevées, ce sont TOUTES les infos de ce site qui se seraient vues à terme mises en doute. Lorsque je cite un numéro de châssis, j'ai d'autres photos indiscutables de l'auto en question avec imm. Et souvent je les ai vues "en vrai", voire conduites. Si je n'ai qu'une vague idée du numéro de châssis, je n'écris rien sur le site, je ne suis pas là pour étaler ma science, mais uniquement pour transmettre des informations fiables. Sachez que ma doc RR compte plus de 100,000 photos et que toutes les Rolls de carrossiers sont répertoriées dans ma base de données, avec numéros d'imm., de moteurs, couleurs, carrossiers, carrosseries, propriétaires, photos, etc.. la base sans les photos fait plusieurs Gigas - je n'archive pas les modèles "standard" (Cloud, Shadow, Spirit etc.) parce que 30,000 Silver Shadow, dont peut-être 8,000 blanches, présentent un intérêt très limité et me prendraient inutilement du temps. Si vous avez des photos non identifiées de RR de carrossiers, e-mailez les moi à rr2530@nomotech.net et je verrai ce que je peux faire.

Thank God, THE specialist is still to come and above all I do not wish to be considered as such, neither do I want to give any lessons to anybody. I simply pointed out to the users of this forum what the basic rules of Information are, as rightly suggested by our moderators ;o) because if those errors - and there were masses of them ! - hadn't been corrected, it's ALL the info published on this site which could have been questioned in the long run. Whenever I quote a chassis number, I can support my claim with other undisputable photos, regos, etc. Often I have seen them "in the metal", and sometimes I have even driven them. If I only have a vague idea as to the chassis number, I don't write in the forum. I'm not here to show off, but simply to transmit reliable info. Please bear in mind that my RR documention counts about 100,000 photos and that ALL the coachbuilt RR are in my database, inc. the reg'n and engine numbers, colours, coachbuilders, coachworks, owners, photos etc.. The records without the photos weigh several Gigabytes - I do not record "standard steel" models (Clouds, Shadows, Spirits etc..) because some 30,000 Silver Shadows, may be 8,000 of which are white, offer a very limited interest and would be a waste of time. If you have unidentified photos of coachbuilt RR, please e-mail them to rr2530@nomotech.net and I'll see what I can do for you.

Pour le moment il ne reste plus que celle-là qui ne soit pas identifiée : /vehicle_96780-Rolls-Royce.html ... sans toutefois être sûr qu'il s'agisse d'une RR !

thank you for reliable information park-ward. If sometimes you will write those information down and release a book - reserve a copy for me :) as I am very interested in pre-war Rollses (one day I hope I will be able to afford one Phantom I or II).
Anyway keep posting - every identification is a valuable dedication to our site.
As I wrote some comments before, if you have more inrformation about any other Rollses in any movies, post those on our forum or send them directly to me at demareteion@gmail.com and I will be happy to upload them to the site, even without the picture from the movie - that will be added later when someone actually watch those.

I clearly understood that you had reliable information in the form of photos and computer databases, but it is fortunate to have your personal experience to provide meaning to such a wealth of data. Please take no offense.

As a matter of fact I already have ! In 1998 I published "De l'Aube du Siècle au Nouveau Millénaire" a story of RR & Bentley 1904-1998 ;o) This book is also available in English "From the Dawn of the Century into the New Millennium". I.e. from the 2 cyl. Royce to the Silver Spirit.

S110MK is a 1925 Rolls-Royce Springfield Silver Ghost with a Rolls-Royce Custom Coachwork Mayfair body. The car looks pretty much the same as in the photograph with the exception of vertical shutters on the radiator and driving lights on the bumpers. I am not sure when the bumpers were added but they are not of a type that would have been supplied on a Ghost of this vintage. The last time I heard the car was in Florida. I have had the pleasure of ridding in the car several times when it was in the care of Bob Waters. It is a very low mileage Ghost and is an excellent example of what a Ghost should be.
