10 hp two-cylinder Rolls-Royce motor car, Reg. No. AX148; Chassis No. 20162; produced by Royce Ltd., Cooke Street, Hulme, Manchester, 1905.

This is one of the earliest Rolls-Royce motorcars and is one of three remaining cars of this type. Built in Hulme, Manchester in 1905, it is the result of a remarkable partnership between an expert engineer and a motorcar pioneer.

The partnership began in Manchester in 1904, when Henry Royce showed his experimental motorcar to Charles Rolls, who wanted to sell quality, “All-British” motorcars. Rolls-Royce was born.

This Rolls-Royce was Henry Royce’s own vehicle, and it’s believed he used it to carry out his duties as a Captain in the Motor Volunteer Corps, before he sold it to an automobile enthusiast, Paris Singer, in 1906.
