£220,000 | Location: United Kingdom
Coming to us from decades long family ownership. This 1919 Rolls Royce Silver Ghost wears coachwork by noted builders Barker & Co. The body is an open drive limousine with a particularly lovely ornate interior. A hard roof is fitted above the driver making it an open drive style car, but this is removeable fop open fronted motoring & additionally a fabric covering can be unrolled should one be caught in inclement weather.
The car is painted in the "dutch Pink" manner of vertical stripes in green, black & yellow giving it a very period look.
Robust in the extreme, this is a very powerful & long legged Silver ghost easily attaining 60 MPH despite the upright coachwork. The car has just emerged from a major service at marque expert Carl Ford Engineering who has done a wonderful job of setting it up to its best advantage.
The opulent interior is of Bedford cord extending also to the twin fold out occasional seats. A smokers hatch is fitted to the roof. A useful table folds out from between the occasional seats. The doors & interior are trimmed in brocade. A speaking tube & rear curtains are also fitted.
To the front is black leather in fine order. There are also fabric side curtains fitted which may be unfurled to afford the driver protection.
All in all this is a completely up & together Ghost with a very vintage feel to it harking back to the pre-war years.
