From boxes of parts to a wonderful restored car... 1911 RR Silver Ghost

This car started life in 1911 but after several owners it was acquired by one T.G. Rose and embarked on a 30 year excursion to Barbados.

In 1949 it returned to the UK and saw service as the starters car for the Newmarket Horse races. Then someone took it apart for some reason, and it was unearthed by marque expert and noted author of the definitive book on Pre War Silver Ghosts, Mr John Fasal.

 He discovered the car in the 1990's in component form (the British way of politely saying in boxes and crates) with the original engine and assorted parts for the car. During the restoration by noted guru Terry Lister other parts were either acquired as needed or fabricated as required to create the wonderful machine you see today.
