|This wonderful example of the Silver Ghost, chassis number 15TE went on test on the 23rd December 1920 before being delivered to it's first customer, a Mr. Herrmann in Belgium on the 2nd February 1921. According to the factory build sheets, 15TE was an Alpine Eagle specification car with nickel fittings and was to be fitted with a torpedo body. The Hooper body was confirmed by John Fasal, the renowned Rolls-Royce expert, after much research. He supplied a number of period photos of the car in the 1920's including some of the car stood on banking at Brooklands.|
The build sheet also tell us that 15TE was fitted with engine number N395, which can be still be found in the car today. After nearly 2 years in Belgium the car was bought by a Captain W. Brass MP in December 1922, before passing onto an E.H.S. Nugent Esq of County Down. The next change of ownership noted on the factory records was to a T.G.W. Haugthon Esq of Messrs. Frazer & Haughton Ltd in County Antrim, Northern Ireland, who acquired the car in December 1946 and is the last owner listed on the records. Later on, 15TE was acquired by a Mr J. Harkness of Northern Ireland in the 1950's, and he put it with other cars in his garage. The car stayed in the Harkness family until the mid-1990's, nearly 40 years on.
After that the car was subject of a complete restoration. The body is painted in a rich Burgundy, with the wings being finished in Black and the original metal finished bonnet was left as it is.
This is a truly stunning car that does every justice to the legend of the Silver Ghost and will go on to provide it's owner with many a year of driving pleasure and pride.
