1914 Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost Tourer

  • Chassis Number: 18PB
  • Registration Number: R 2110
Following the 1912 disqualification of the Rolls-Royce driven by Radley in the 1912 Austrian Alpine Trials, Rolls-Royce modified the 1913 cars and entered four cars, placing 1st and 2nd with James Radley, a private entry, finishing 4th.

In 1914, Rolls-Royce did enter the Alpine Trial. However, James Radley personally entered the Alpine Trial with a specially built Silver Ghost. This car was built with the special instructions to make any alterations necessary for the Austrian Alpine Trial. Ten day after the chassis left Rolls-Royce, James Radley with Rolls-Royce test driver/mechanic, Tubby Ward, won the 1914 Alpine trial outright and was named the 'Alpine Eagle.' After the win, Rolls-Royce used the car for publicity, but due to the outbreak of WWI, they could see financial threats were near. The body was removed and the chassis was sold and sent to Brewster dealers in New York for new coachwork.

It was bodied by Brewster in 1915 and again in the late 1920s. In the 1940s, it found its way to Connecticut where it was converted to a farm truck/tractor.

The vehicle was found by the current owner in 1999, still on the farm, in very bad condition. It has since under gone an extensive restoration back to its former 1914 Alpine Trial condition.

No auction information available for this vehicle at this time.
