Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost goes on show at Goodwood


One of the oldest Rolls-Royce Silver Ghosts in the world – the Silver Dawn – will go on show at the company’s HQ from today.

The car has just returned from continental Europe after completing the 1800-mile Centenary Alpine Trial, during which it tackled the infamous Stelvio and Loibl passes, in Italy and Slovenia.

The Royce was built in 1908 and still has the factory chassis, gearbox, axles, fuel tank and engine – the latter using its original cast-iron pistons.

Supplied new to Charles H Angus of Australia in 1999, it was the first of the Angus family cars to be named The Silver Dawn.

The car was subject to a full restoration by P&A Wood last year.
