Roll's Royce Silver Ghost of the King of the Belgians

At the beginning of the century, the English brand ROLL'S ROYCE is quickly a brand of luxury cars and addresses the Monarchies throughout the world by offering its models.

During the Second World War, we can note that the English General MONTGOMERY had at his disposal a ROLL'S ROYCE Phantom III. This car had been requisitioned by the Ministry of War Transport to Mr WILCOX, owner of an English company, the "TALBOT Motor Company".


It was also used by King George VI, the British Prime Minister Winston CHURCHILL and the American General EISENHOWER during meetings in preparation for the landing.


After D-Day, it was given to the Chief of Staff of the US Air Force. This ROLL'S ROYCE is also known under the name of "GREEN CAR". It was the last model conceived by the founder Henry ROYCE before his death in 1933. 710 were produced and 300 survived.


The English general MONTGOMERY also used a ROLL'S ROYCE as personal car, from the landing until the moment when he signed the German surrender on "LÜNEBURG HEATH", near Hamburg, in Germany, on May 04, 1945 concerning the Netherlands, the northwest of Germany, Denmark and the German warships in this zone.

This general was determined to be seen in a better car than any German general in their MERCEDES...
