1922 Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost Springfield Piccadilly Roadster
£320,000 | Location: United Kingdom
This nut & bolt restored American built Rolls Royce Silver Ghost Piccadilly roadster has been totally restored at vast cost. The car was barn found in very dilapidated condition prior to the current restoration being undertaken.
The car was finished to match a Rolls Royce Advertisement of the period:
"Finished in Lacquer of Gendarme Blue with black fenders & body striped in white, it will instantly appeal to the owner driver. As fitting this model, its upholstery is black leather".
The car is in as new condition & drives beautifully. The result is a car epitomising the peak of 1920's styling whilst being in simply gorgeous condition.
To the rear is a large motoring trunk. The dickey seat folds open easily allowing for two additional passengers. We are in the process of servicing the car & final set up is to be done in March by noted Ghost specialist Carl Ford of Carl Ford Engineering.
The car is fitted with 4 brand new tyres & also has additional spares mounted above both running boards. The Picadilly body was one of the most rakish & desirable in period, a style which it maintains until this day.
The convertible top is of grey mohair & is easily raised & lowered. Under the bonnet the engine bay is to show standards with gleaming copper & brass in abundance. The original dash board has been retained exhibiting a wonderful patina of aged black paint. A full quotient of period instrumentation resides in their appointed places. Indicated mileage is 75,000.
WIth a full service completed this car will be ready for extended motoring & continental touring.
