Description
 
Chassis #60970. The only short wheelbase sport chassis Silver Ghost in existence. Restored to original specification, including Barker Roi des Belges coachwork. Interesting, documented history. Simply stunning.

This Silver Ghost, chassis number 60970, is the only short wheelbase sport chassis Silver Ghost in existence. It carries a duplicate of its original Barker Roi des Belges bodywork, has a known, fascinating history from new, and presents in breathtaking, concours-ready condition throughout. One of the most impressive, documented, and highly authentic early Ghosts in the world, this is a unique opportunity to own a significant automobile that can anchor even the most impressive collections and museums.

Having won events like Pebble Beach, Meadow Brook Hall, Amelia Island, and being a multiple Rolls-Royce Owner’s Club winner, 60970 is a stunning automobile in every regard. The cream coachwork contrasts brilliantly with the charcoal gray leather upholstery and black canvas hood, and is virtually flawless inside and out. Compared to the Roi des Belges bodies built on the standard chassis, many feel that the shorter sport wheelbase results in a more balanced appearance and tidier proportions. Detailing is exceptional, with charcoal gray pinstripes and polished hardware throughout the chassis. Accessories include a python horn, running board mounted toolboxes and shoe cleaning mats, and a complete tool roll.

The interior is tastefully trimmed in black leather with polished wood and nickel accents. The polished aluminum and oak dashboard sports an array of useful gauges, from oil pressure to an Elliott Brothers speedometer. As with the exterior, there are virtually no flaws, no marks, and no wear to any of the components.

Powered by its original 7.2-liter inline six cylinder engine making 48 horsepower, 60970 is a fantastic runner. Thanks to the sport chassis and original subframe-mounted 4-speed gearbox with overdrive, it is a spirited performer and can easily accelerate from barely more than a crawl to top speed in high gear. A 12-volt starting system has been added, as well as an air pressure type fuel system, making this a reliable, powerful, brass-era tourer that will be the star of any event.

Silver Ghosts of this caliber are seldom offered on the open market. Restored to extremely high standards, this car remains competitive at the highest levels, and is gladly welcomed at any show or driving event in the world. With uncompromising quality, sparkling performance, and a fascinating story to tell, this short wheelbase sport chassis Silver Ghost is unique among its peers.
