1912 Barker Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost #2117
The Nizam of Hyderabad had this RR Silver Ghost custom built as a ceremonial coach.
I found these pics on an Indian forum: http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/pre-1950/46523-nizam-hyderabad-s-collection-cars-carriages.html

Variations on the same theme could lead to completely different looking bodies......

The pearl of the East - the first Rolls Royce Silver Ghost supplied to India
The Throne car of the Nizam of Hyderabad - still existing with a mileage below 500 (!), but ruined by an update on the body in the thirties.
And a Silver Ghost with Purdah glass for the ladies of the household

A very original 1920 Rolls Royce Silver Ghost Open Drive Limousine by Barker, left behind by its Dutch owner in Brussels with a very low mileage on it, and sold by the garage in the fifties to the Mahy family, who are the foremost collectors in Belgium.

In the waning moments of the 2009 Meadow Brook Concours, I was quite pleased to find this
1912 R-R Silver Ghost Double Pullman Limo by Barker, being posed for "studio" shots
on the lawn at Meadow Brook Hall. Never one for temerity at such an opportunity,
I snapped happily with the trusty Nikon, one of the few photogs on hand to take advantage
of the elegant setting. I hope you will enjoy these previously-unpublished images.

The Nizam of Hyderabad had this RR Silver Ghost custom built as a ceremonial coach.
I found these pics on an Indian forum: http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/pre-1950/46523-nizam-hyderabad-s-collection-cars-carriages.html

Both on http://www.prewar.com and on http://www.team-bhp.com images are now shown of the second Cartier sponsored concours which show this car having been restored to more or less its 1912 condition. Of course some conservationists were appaled that the thirties changes have been discarded, but surely the lowest mileage Rolls Royce Silver Ghost (less than a 1000 miles since new...) deserved a better fate than slowly fall to pieces for the sake of originality.
The result looks very appropriate, not over restored, and it will ensure this car is safe. Perhaps the major criticism could be that the original colour appears to have been yellow orange, than the primrose yellow now on it, but perhaps that was preferred by its current owner, descendants of its original owner. So there is, one owner, seldom used (once per year), and very much one-off: little demand in the market for a silver dome in a car.
Also, it is to be applauded that some cars not only remain in India, but that now its owners also care enough to spend serious money on the serious quality restoration of some pieces.
