When October 1914 rolled around, all of the production Rolls-Royce civilian cars had stopped being made, in order to fulfill requests for British war office to produce armor plated Silver Ghosts. They were built based on the same chassis as the 1913 Austrian Alpine Trials.
Chassis 34LB was ordered by is Grace the Duke of Westminster in July of 1914, and was built to full Alpine Eagle spec. In 1916, Rolls-Royce fitted it with armor before being shipped off to Egypt and Palestine. After serving in the war, it was rebuilt for civilian use in 1920. It has since under gone a top notch restoration, and has been fitted with a tri-pod turret and a display-only, non-working Maxim .30 caliber machine gun.
