Sold for $291,500 at 2017 RM Sothebys : Monterey.
This Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost has a Piccadilly Roadster body built by Massachusetts bodymaker, Merrimac. There were one-hundred and five examples of the Piccadilly body styles produced for the Silver Ghost and relatively few of these were used on new chassis.

This particular example was delivered to its first owner, B.M. Taylor of Boston, on January 17th of 1924. It was later owned by Mrs. Louisa F. Connely, Peter Knoefel, and a Mrs. Wagner. In 1939, it was acquired by Boris Lakusta, of San Rafael, who drove it in the California deserts for over three decades.

Lorin Tryon became its next owner before selling it in 1983 to Bill Dobson. In 1989, it was sold to Dr. James Stickley who had a full restoration performed on the car. Up to that point, the car had remained largely original and intact, aside from smaller wheels and a cut-down windshield, both of which were reversed to the original specifications.

After the restoration, the car was shown at the 2003 Pebble Beach Concorus d'Elegance where it won 3rd in Class. It was purchased right off the 18th green by the current owner.
