This 1914 Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost, chassis 35 PB, was factory test driven on April 23, 1914. This is regarded as its 'birth date.'
It is fitted with a Landaulette body by H.J. Mulliner and delivered new to Capt. & Mrs. Robert Glen in Glasgow, Scotland. Years later, it was sent to New York where its old body was removed and it was fitted with a rumble seat Coupe' by Locke & Company.
The car underwent a complete chassis restoration and was re-bodied with a replica touring body by noted British engineer David Hemmings over a 4.5-year period. Note the unique jump seats and brandy decanters with monogrammed glasses.
The car has completed a tour from England to the South of France to the summer house of Sir Henry Royce, and back to England, a distance of 1,500 miles. The car also completed 1,200 mile tour of Northern England and the Scottish Borders, in the United Kingdom.
Chassis number 35PB sailed the high seas from the United Kingdom to rejoin the Sierra Collection in September of 2005.
In 2009, this 40/50 HP Silver Ghost Tourer was offered for sale at the Gooding & Company auction in Scottsdale, Arizona. It was estimated to sell for $600,000 - $750,000. As the gavel came down for the third and final time, the lot had failed to find a bidder willing to satisfy its reserve. The lot was left unsold.Also photographed at :
