About Parts

CAVEATS

Experimental parts.

Rolls-Royce were continually experimenting with and developing new ideas. Some vehicles were sold with experimental rather than standard parts still fitted. This is not always recorded in the original records relating to that chassis.

‘The customer is always right.’

If the original owner of the vehicle requested a non-standard feature Rolls-Royce would usually oblige. We know of a Derby Bentley that was supplied with a Rolls-Royce mascot, because the first owner requested it. On another occasion a Phantom 2 had a later engine fitted from new, at the first owners request.

‘Anno Domini.'

With the passage of time it is possible that original parts have been replaced with items from a different generation of car. Consequently you may find that the correct king pin for that particular car will not fit the (non-original) axle, for example.

We have made every effort to ensure the accuracy of the Parts Application Filter. However, there is an enormous volume of data required, and the quality of this is being continually improved. Should you find any errors please would you draw these to our attention.

Springfield Built Cars

Cars built or assembled in the USA at the Springfield, Massachusetts factory are a special case. The information about parts fitted to the Springfield cars is not great, particularly those parts which are different to the Derby-made item. A number of parts were sourced locally in the States and designs altered. Consequently they do not always follow the expected Rolls-Royce pattern. If you find that our Parts Application Filter is inaccurate in any respect please let us know; you may be doing somebody else a favour!
