1915 Rolls-Royce Colonial Silver Ghost For Sale

Chassis number 29ED is a striking example of a colonial type Silver Ghost. It has a stylish maroon body with its original polished aluminium L to E louvered bonnet. The car was originally fitted with tourer coachwork by Barker, but after the war the body work was replaced by a cabriolet de ville body by T.H. Gill of Paddington. In 1989 the current Alpine Eagle style torpedo coachwork was fitted to honour the Edwardian origin of the car. 29ED has a colourful and exciting history. The chassis build cards reveal that the colonial chassis was altered to meet Admiralty mark V specifications, and that the car was directly supplied to the military in 1915 and used in active service until 1919. It was then acquired by the British Mercedes Motor Co, reputedly for evaluation. In 1920 29ED was purchased by H. Hirsch of Park Lane, for whom Rolls-Royce carried out overhaul work, including the addition of an electric starter and adjustments to the carburettor and road wheels. In 1926 the car was sold to the Raja of Kalsia in India, and stayed in the Punjab principality until 1950. It has remained in the same family since 1985. The car was originally specified as a “colonial” chassis, with a “standard” G series engine, D type steering, short type levers “set in”, a 22” radiator, four speed gearbox and nickel fittings. In the late 1980s the chassis was rebuilt from the frame upwards and has since participated in a number of rallies, including the 1993 Alpine Re-enactment Tour, and was awarded a certificate of merit for its participation in the International Commemorative Rally at Courteenhall in 1987. This is an exciting and sporting Silver Ghost with good history, and would prove a wonderful touring car.
