1907 Rolls Royce Silver Ghost
model the first of several Rolls Royces in the
range. It was this model that sparked the
interest of collectors following its review in
the 'Veteran and Vintage' magazine.
This model is
smaller in scale than the other Silver Ghost in
the range and was always finished in a light
metallic green. The shade of earlier models is
slightly lighter than those produced later in the
long production run. Original road wheels where
finished in silver with bolt head detail on the
rims. The wheel colour was changed to a brass
finish and the bolt head detail omitted on later
issues. The picture shows the second issue and
the eighth issue which was produced much later.
The first issue has the rear light painted red
and a silver rear number plate. This extra trim
was omitted on later issues. The first two issues
have grey knobbly tyres and can be found for
around £50. Later models sport black tyres and
are usually found for between £20 and £30. One
quite scarce issue has dark green seats rather
than the more usual black seats. This issue is
usually priced at more than £60.
