Vintage and Prestige Fine Motor Cars are proud to be offering this 1925 Rolls Royce Silver Ghost Tourer for sale. This splendid-looking Rolls Royce Silver Ghost Tourer hails from 1925 and according to factory records, was delivered new with coachwork by Thrupp & Maberly to Captain George Clark of St Andrews, Scotland. Within four years it had passed to a Captain Richie who took it to Kenya where he served as a chief game warden until the end of WWII.

By 1947 the Rolls Royce Silver Ghost Tourer was in the care of a rancher, Captain Harries, in whose family it remained until 1968 before being sold to Kenyan rally driver J. Jeeves. It was he who undertook a major restoration of the Rolls Royce Silver Ghost Tourer which included having the engine overhauled by a Rolls-Royce specialist commissioning a new body from skilled Nairobi-based coachbuilder Cassini & Tonolo.

This was reputedly one of five Rolls Royce Ghosts they rejuvenated using aluminium panelling over a metal frame in deference to the Kenyan climate. The handsome dual cowl design is in the style of Barker.

Migrating to Rhodesia in 1971 and then to South Africa some eight years later, the Rolls Royce Silver Ghost Tourer was subsequently placed into storage. De-commissioned especially for the 1993 Commemorative Alpine Trial, the Rolls Royce Silver Ghost Tourer reportedly completed the event with aplomb and minimum use of engine oil. Finished in white over black, complemented by a black interior, it has very good bodywork, paintwork, interior trim, engine and gearbox.

The dual cowl Tourer's impressive specification includes, scuttle mounted side lamps, two-piece windscreen with side deflectors, a distinctive austere-type rear screen, twin side-mounted spare wheels, Rolls Royce Spirit of Ecstasy mascot and badge bar. The Rolls Royce Silver Ghost Tourer comes with side screens twin tonneau covers and a full length roof all being in good order.

The Rolls Royce Silver Ghost Tourer has been serviced previously by Marque specialist Alan Glew. More recently it went to Marque specialist Lee Kenworthy and had £10,000.00 spent on it preparing it for the Via Hellenica Rally covering over 1,000 arduous miles through Greece. The Rolls Royce Silver Ghost Tourer performed faultlessly on the rally starting instantly each day taking winding passes up to 6,500 ft. in its stride. Post rally, it went to the Priory Vintage Car Company for a tune up and is now extremely well.
