In April 1921 the first US-built Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost rolled off the production line in Springfield/Massachusetts. There a factory had been equipped following Rolls-Royce's 1920 announcement that the 40/50 hp chassis would be produced in the U.S.A. emphasizing that the same quality materials were to be used and of course adequate standards of excellence with which the name Rolls-Royce had become associated. Early examples were completely identical to their British counterparts, on later series vital modifications like left hand drive and a centre change three speed gearbox catered for American fashion and driving attitudes.
