"This example was originally purchased by Winfield Sheehan, of Fox Studios, in 1921, and was rebodied by Brewster, as it is seen here, in 1932".

Looking at the front apron, it's a Phantom I.
The modified fenders are :eek: imo

The problem with scanning pictures from books like 'Those Elegant Rolls-Royce', by Laurence Dalton, is that the information contained therein is frequently outdated. In 1967 when this book was made, the lack of knowledge in the United Kingdom of coachbuilders in the USA, and of the history of Rolls-Royce in America was very limited, and hence all Springfield Silver Ghosts, bar a few which were specifically identified as such, were attributed to Brewster. Incorrectly so, and 'Rolls-Royce in America' by John W. de Campi and 'The American Rolls-Royce', by Art Soutter are much better sources.
In this case the body was ordered as Rolls-Royce Custom Coachwork which was farmed out to great many local coachbuilders, or, as it happens to be the case with this Berwick Limousine, constructed in their own Waltham Avenue works in Springfield. Also the Berwick differs only from the Pickwick by having no division fitted, thus making it a Saloon (or in U.S. parlour) a Sedan.
