1908 Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost

Chassis number : 60756

Share on:

Sold for $990,000 at 2016 RM Sotheby's : Monterey.
This example was ordered on May 30th of 1906 by George Edwardes. It was originally ordered to receive coachwork by Barker, but it was sent to H.J. Mulliner and clothed in the coachwork it currently wears. The completed car was delivered to Mr. Edwards. This example is believed to be the ninth oldest surviving Silver Ghost.

Another owner was Herbert Morris of London, who acquired it in 1915, followed by Mrs. Chris Caslon of London, in 1921. The history from that point is not known, until 1958, when the bare chassis was uncovered in a breaker's yard near Witney. It was discovered by Cecil Bendall of Hitchin, Hertsfordshire. Mr. Bendall mounted a racing body, replacing the car's 'breakdown truck' body, but otherwise left the Silver Ghost alone. The chassis was sold in 1972 in unrestored condition to W.D.S. 'Bill' Lake. Mr. Lake had the car authentically restored.

Mr. Harley and Mr. Lake designed the lines for a 1908 vintage body, which was built by Wilkinson in Derby.

Mr. Lake sold the Silver Ghost to James Stickley in 1984. Ownership subsequently passed through Florida collectors Rick Carroll and later Bill Lassiter before making its way to England and into the care of Charles Howard, who maintained it for two years. In 1991, it was sold to Ishieto Morimoto of Japan. It was acquired in December of 1993 by its current owner.

This vehicle successfully completed the 'Round Briton Tour' in June of 2017 and completed 2,900 miles that year.
