The 20-Ghost Club was inaugurated on the 26th May 1949
by a group of owners dedicated to the preservation of pre-1940
Rolls-Royce motor cars, which they were concerned were in danger of
being lost. The name of the Club was taken from the cars which these
founders owned, the legendary 40/50 HP Silver Ghost and its smaller
counterpart, the 20 HP model.
The Club activities still revolve around the early cars such as Silver Ghosts, 20 hp and the New Phantom, (subsequently becoming known as the Phantom I), as well as models such as the 20/25 HP, 25/30 HP, Wraith and Phantom II and III, as elegibility for membership extends to owners of all pre-1940 Rolls-Royce motor cars. No Bentleys or post-war Rolls-Royces are admitted and consequently the Club has its own unique flavour, which can perhaps be best appreciated on our various tours when a wonderful selection of coachbuilt cars dating from the earliest days of Rolls-Royce motor cars can be seen.
With a membership which is now drawn from many countries, the Club consists of people who enjoy driving and sharing enthusiasm for the earlier models of 'The Best Car in the World'.
