1922 Rolls Royce Silver Ghost Tourer
Registration number: AJ8865
Chassis number: 12YG
A magnificent Rolls Royce Silver Ghost tourer that has remained under the last ownership since 1991. The car has just arrived & has been dispatched to The Priory Vintage Car Co for a full service prior to running in the forthcoming 100 miles of Amsterdam at the end of the month. Once the car returns we will finish detailing it & properly photograph it.
The car has a post war barrel sided torpedo touring body fitted to it made from Aluminum over traditional ash framing. The body is well executed & rakish in the extreme. The paint is recently redone in Burgundy over Black so presents beautifully. To the interior is sumptuous newish buttoned maroon leather to all the seating surfaces with maroon carpets to the rear & black rubber floor matting to the front.
A side mounted spare sits on the running board as does a cabinet maker built open dovetailed battery box. The mahogany dash board contains a full quotient of period instrumentation. Mechanically the car is very very sound having been looked after by the current owner who cut his teeth at Romseys famed Jack 'O Lantern garage. The engine is very quiet & starts readily. Oil pressure is excellent & the car runs cool.
A full length split tonneau cover comes with the car. The hood of black canvas is in good condition & erects easily for inclement motoring. A hood bag keeps the ensemple tidy when in the down position.
All in all a wonderful car in super order throughout & ready for extensive touring.
