One thing I want t say is that AX 201 is "THE" Silver Ghost where as all others including the Nizams car, which is cnsiderably more important that any others, is still "a" Silver Ghost.

There is only one car in the world that is THE Silver Ghost and thats AX201.

Nizam's car is THE throne car and also A Silver Ghost. The raised rear seat gves the illusion of a "throne" hense the car picked up the name of Throne Car.

Thats the differnce between these two cars and once again I repeat they are importnat cars on their own merits and there is no yardstick that can be applied to compare them.

I agree with Wasif, "The Silver Ghost" is a very very important car since that is the only car in the world that can actually be called a "Silver Ghost". Others are merely 40/50 hp Rollers. No doubt, the Nizam's car is special, but not more important than the silver Rolls. I for one never even knew that the Nizam had such a Rolls, whereas I doubt if any one who is a car lover has not heard or seen pics or seen in real "The Silver Ghost". I also think that the modification done to the Nizam's Ghost killed the car, and am glad she is being put back to original specs. Again, just my own opinion.

Just learnt from a friend who has shown me pictures of the car when in ownership of previous owners that the 1939 Delahaye 135 M in Jodhpur was originally used by the Maharajah of Akalkot, later bought by Nawab Zahir Yar Jung and eventually to Nawab Ahmed Yar Jung in Hyderabad. It apparently was never owned by Prince Azamjah.

It was apparently a light blue before being painted its present red
