Phaeton
Coachwork: Brunn
Chassis Num: 39AG
This Silver Ghost 40/50 was the 28th chassis produced at the new Rolls-Royce Springfield, Massachusetts works between 1920 and 1921. The body, the car's original, is a sleek five-passenger Phaeton was fitted by Buffalo, New York coachbuilder Brunn and Company to the specifications of its first owner, J.C. McKinney also of Buffalo, New York. It was originally delivered as a right-hand drive car.

In 1926 chassis 39AG was returned to the factory for updating, including a switch of the driving position to left-hand drive, new bumpers, wheels, tires grille vanes and faired-in tool boxes among other improvements. The car retains its original engine with 12-volt electrics and four-speed transmission.

39AG has lead an interesting and varied existence. Perhaps the low point was in the early 1950's when such cars were not very desirable. It was offered for sale in the New York Times for a mere $600.

The car has since been completely restored to its original condition. This took place in three phases over a ten year period. Since completion, it has garnered numerous national level awards.
