H1-01 1908 Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost

This Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost (chassis 60922), one of the oldest in the world, is known as the “Silver Dawn.” The car was first owned by Charles Angas of South Australia, and he and his family traveled extensively around Great Britain in the car between 1910 and 1912 before taking it to Australia. It wears a polished Roi des Belges tourer body built by Barker, similar to the famous Rolls-Royce 40/50 that became known as the Silver Ghost (AX201). The Silver Dawn has just completed the 1,800-mile 2013 Centenary Alpine Trial in commemoration of the first Alpine Trial that proved the Silver Ghost’s reliability. The Silver Dawn was built in 1908 and still features many original parts, including its chassis, engine, gearbox and front and rear axles. The engine even retains its original cast-iron pistons. The car was restored by Rolls-Royce Motor Cars’ authorized dealer P & A Wood. Owned in 2014 by Barker Roi des Belges Robert Gaines-Cooper, England
