I have a 1912 Rolls Royce Silver Ghost which was owned by Andrew Carnegie and had the number NS165
could this be the same car? Both myself and father have owned this car since 1969 and hunted high or low for photos. Further photos and any info wanted, no matter how small. Very keen to find full history of this car.

Many thanks for your comment and I hope that one of our visitors here on the image library will be able to help you- Administrator

If any one can add to these photos of Rolls Royce NS165, which left the Carnegie family in 1946 and went to the John Sword car collection, I would be very grateful. Any information welcome, no matter how small.

Hello Christopher,

I have some paperwork here lists of owners of NS number plates which indeed confirms Andrew Carnegie owned a Rolls Royce Landaulette (40-50 HP) in royal blue with primrose lining. I have one further photo which looks to be taken the same day as the one above, apparently showing the same Mr Chisholm driving. ~ Thank you for your comment. ~ Administrator.
