Silver Ghost Cabriolet

Introduced at the Olympia Motor Show in 1907, the Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost went on to reign supreme during the following 19 years of production, firmly establishing itself as the unparalleled standard by which all other cars were judged. During this period, 6,173 cars were produced in Manchester and Derby until 1925, when the overhead-valve 'New Phantom,' also later known retrospectively as the Phantom I, finally replaced the Silver Ghost. In addition, Rolls-Royce of America, Inc. turned out another 1,703 Silver Ghosts in their American factory at Springfield, Massachusetts. The company's reputation for excellence was indeed well deserved, and although the basic specification remained unaltered during production, they steadily developed the model over this period.

This Silver Ghost Cabriolet convertible has a six cylinder with 40/50 horsepower, 7,428 cc side-valve inline six-cylinder engine, four-speed manual gearbox, live front axle with semi-elliptic leaf springs and friction dampers, cantilever rear suspension, and four-wheel drum brakes with gearbox-driven servo. It features a curved door panel and body frame giving the car an elegant appearance.
