Rolls-Royce of America was founded in Springfield, Massachusetts, in November of 1919, with the aim of increasing Rolls-Royce sales by avoiding the high tariffs imposed on imported cars. Production of the Silver Ghost was begun in late 1920, and eventually every part except for the crankshafts was sourced in America. Production shifted to the New Phantom in 1926, and continued through the end of American production in 1931. The New Phantom had a 7.7-liter six-cylinder engine rated at 100 horsepower, and the bare chassis listed for $11,750 in 1926. This left-hand drive model was fitted with a Newmarket Convertible Sedan coachwork by Brewster. Restored in 1990, it has received accolades in several shows in which it has been entered.
