1922 Rolls Royce Silver Ghost Henri Binder Victoria hood.
Chassis number: 70YG
Registration number: XO275
A magnificent silver ghost coming to us out of 4 decades of ownership where it has been dry stored in a small collection of cars. The last deceased owner purchased it from a man who had disinterred it from a French barn where it had been laid up during the war years with its wheels stored elsewhere to stop it being requisitioned.
The coachwork is by famed Parisian Coachbuilder Henri Binder. The car has a large victoria style hood to the rear which we were unable to erect fully during photography due to the impediment of a low beam in the garage. A further hood connects the windscreen to the front of the Victoria affording rudimentary protection to all occupants.
The car was parked & mounted on axle blocks many years ago when in fine running order having had an engine rebuild prior to lay up; We discovered it sitting next to a 1973 11,000 mile Jaguar e type which also was unused & purchased in 1977 with just 10,000 miles on the odometer.
We are about to service & fully recommission the car in the next weeks & will also conduct our usual full photographic shoot once the service is complete & had a full valet. The car has wonderful patinated Japanned black leather to the seats & hood. Paint is a dark maroon over black & is in very good order. The door handles are of particular note, being wrought in a beautifully ornamented manner.
Watch this space as the work & photography progresses.
