1922 Rolls Royce Silver Ghost Barker tourer.
Chassis number: 84TG
Engine number: P226
Registration number: XM2825
A Multiple Award winner at The RREC Rockingham rally & elsewhere. This Silver Ghost comes to us in Superb condition having been restored & looked after without regard to expense. The ngine was fully rebuilt at vast expense by Ristes of Nottingham. Since then the vehicle has been set up & maintained by Carl Ford at The Priory Vintage Car co.
Ordered new by one Mr Alexander, the chassis was dispatched to Messrs Barker & co to be fitted with the desirable dual cowl open touring body we find upon the car today. D rake steering was specified making for a comfortable driving position. The polished metal dash sports a full compliment of instrumentation. An Auster screen folds out & up to protect the rear occupants.
The car is finished in mid blue over black wings, the paint being in exemplary order. To the interior is navy blue buttoned leather again in perfect condition. A deep blue mohair hood completes the ensemble. To the rear is a Capacious motoring trunk containing two large suit cases. Twin side-mount spare wheels are fitted to the running boards as is a Benzole spare petrol can. A comprehensive vintage tool kit is stowed in the off side running board cupboard.
Under the bonnet the car is beautifully detailed as one might expect. The original under-trays are in situ. A klaxon horn is fixed to the bulkhead. The engine runs in the traditional silence for which Silver Ghosts are justifiably famous. Power is smooth & constant through the gears which are easily engaged. An assortment of bills & a photographic essay of the engine rebuild comes with the car.
Simply put: this is a Silver Ghost that wants for nothing & is impeccable order throughout.
