See all the Images for this Car
With its original body and numbers-matching components, the Silver Ghost, chassis 1850E, also sports the earliest known sunroof mechanism, which is a further testament to its unique coachwork. It was ordered new with nickel fittings, Dunlop grooved tires, and a seven-passenger landaulette body. Shortly after completion, the car was photographed for the 1913 Rolls-Royce sales brochure, which proved to be beneficial in the confirmation of the marque’s advanced design when other automakers claimed their retractable roofs were the first. The car has a well-documented ownership history, predominantly residing in the UK until 2014, when its present-day owner brought it to California where it currently resides. Chassis 1850E received the Co-Chairman’s Trophy Award at the 2004 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance®, and was on display once again in 2016 for prewar enthusiasts from around the world to admire.
