1921 Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost

Chassis number : 72 LG

Share on:

In 1919, after World War I, Rolls-Royce England was two years behind in filling chassis orders. For this and other economic reasons, the decision was made to build up to 350 chassis each year in Springfield, MA. The chassis were to be identical to the English-built Rolls, but the Springfield chassis were to be fitted with some standard type bodies, which the American market desired. This car was ordered by Mrs. Vallerie Timken with a RRCCW touring body. The car was delivered in May of 1921, at her Beverly Hills summer estate. Records indicate that this chassis was number 55 out of 132 built in 1921. It is the fourth oldest Silver Ghost known to survive. The car was still in her possession in 1933, when an interior fire rendered it undriveable. This car has a 144-inch wheelbase and a six-cylinder, 453 cubic-inch engine developing 48 horsepower. The car weighs 4,000 pounds and has a top speed of 65 mph. The cost new was about $12,000 or the equivalent of three new Cadillacs.
