1909 Rolls Royce 40/50hp Silver Ghost Tourer
1909 Rolls Royce Silver Ghost Tourer with Roi-des-belges style coachwork. Delivered via L.C Seligmann to R.A Munn, a civil engineer and marine Superintendent to the Union castle line. Winner of the Stockbridge hill climbing trial in May 1914. In 1919 the car was purchased by Hurbert Scott-paine, founder of the Supermarine company, aircraft and boat designer, record-breaking power boat racer, entrepreneur, inventor, and sponsor of the winning entry in the 1922 Schneider Trophy. In recent years the car has toured all around Europe and is a dated member of the veteran car club. The last gentleman owner has owned the car since 1966 along with another Silver Ghost thus this car has not be on the market for 53 years. This is a wonderful example of a pre war Silver Ghost with some beautiful period features such as the original gas headlamps and paraffin side lamps, running and driving beautifully. A highly sought after collectors car, worthy of any collection.
