With regard to the Baltasar & Fiol Silver Ghost limousine de ville, the Silver Ghost gurus say that they only bodied two Silver Ghosts - chassis 33TM, an allweather, and 113EM, a limousine de ville which was at the Barcelona Motor Show in April 1924. Often the description of the coachwork in the Rolls-Royce records for each car is not exactly what was put on the chassis, as owners or coachbuilders changed their minds. RR were interested to know what kind of body was to be put on, as this determined how they set up the car's springs.
I would guess that the body shown is 113EM.

All of these Baltasar coupes on Rolls-Royce chassis are Phantom Is and so can't be Phantom II 126MY. One of the coupes is marked as possibly Phantom I 51NC. But there seem to be THREE different cars here: one with Zeiss headlamps and no chrome line along the waist; another with Lucas P100 headlamps and a chrome line along the whole waist; and a final one with Lucas P100 headlamps and a chrome line that stops halfway along the door.
