to be sold at 2018 Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale auction The Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost motorcar is a legend and it is the car that really began the Rolls-Royce tradition. The firm Rolls-Royce Ltd., was formed in 1906 and was the result of a business partnership formed between engineer Frederick Henry Royce and the Honorable Charles Stewart Rolls, an aristocrat and influential automotive pioneer, to produce motor cars that were refined and with excellent performance. Henry Royce had a particular talent for taking a good thing and making it better and in 1903, at age forty-one and running a successful dynamo and electric crane manufacturing company, he elected to direct his attention toward his new passion – the motorcar. He decided to make three cars to his own design and with careful attention to the design and construction in addition to the general excellence of workmanship, the Royce cars were very much quieter and more flexible than others cars of the time. Once the Rolls-Royce Company started manufacturing cars in the tiny Manchester factory, it would be four models of the Rolls-Royce cars before one model, the six-cylinder Rolls-Royce 40/50, would prove so successful that it was
The Silver Wraith presented here is an extraordinary Rolls-Royce, and it should come as no surprise that its first owner was no ordinary man. Born in 1894, Thomas Franklyn Manville Jr., known to all as Tommy, was the heir to the Johns-Manville industrial fortune and a much-publicized New York socialite. In 1925, the 31-year-old Tommy Manville inherited a fortune of approximately $10 million. The following year, he began construction on a 28-room mansion on the Long Island Sound, between New Rochelle and Mamaroneck. The property, known as Bon Repos, featured a radio and record player in every room, a telephone switchboard in the master bedroom, a movie theater, and watchtowers staffed by armed guards. Beyond his penchant for matrimony, Mr. Manville's off-color remarks, drinking habits, and extraordinary wealth made him something of a celebrity in his day. He was even mentioned in an Irving Berlin song and a Jackie Curtis musical. Unsurprisingly, Tommy Manville was one of Rolls-Royce of America's most valued customers. His many purchases included a Phantom I York Roadster and Newmarket Convertible Sedan, a Phantom II Henley Roadster and Croydon Victoria, and an lnskip-bodied Phantom

Mulliner Saloon coachwork - The Classic Car by Beverly Rae Kimes, pictured in the book, pg.729 -The Derby Phantoms by Lawrence Dalton, pictured in book, pg.385 The Phantom III debuted at the 1935 Olympia Motor Show and garnered immediate acclaim as the world’s most technically advanced series-produced automobile chassis. Its state-of-the-art, overhead-valve V-12 engine featured a one-piece aluminum alloy crankcase and cylinder block, aluminum cylinder heads and cast-iron wet cylinder liners. The highly capable chassis was a rigid cruciform-braced, box-girder design with an independent wishbone front suspension and semi-elliptic rear springs, and the four-speed gearbox offered synchromesh on the top three gears. The Phantom III also broke new ground as the first British car produced with hyd
THIS CAR WILL BE SOLD NEXT MONTH AT THE BARRETT JACKSON SCOTTSDALE AUCTION 1 of 3 Roadsters This rumble seat Roadster was the sportiest model of the time and an incredible car. The Twin Six engine is regarded as the first production V12 and was initially offered from 1916 through 1922. Engine specs are 424cid and 90hp. The transmission is 3-speed manual. Examples of the fantastic craftsmanship from the era are abundant throughout the car.

The engine and serial numbers are correct for the year. The original owner of the car was Joe Daniels from Daniels Packaging company in Rhinelander, Wisconsin. Daniels was in the habit of buying a new car every couple of years and the old one was never traded in--just put in the basement of the packaging company and kept for "posterity". Somewhere in the mid-1970s this car was given as a gift to Fabian Woodzika who owned the sunflower Collection, then to Earl Schutte of Wausau, WI. 1984- The car was purchased by Dave Lindsay of Manawa, WI 1997- Blackhawk Collection 1998- Pat Finney 2016- Current Ow

1940 Cadillac Series 75 Brunn Towncar Chassis Number: 3320424 It was December 1939, almost 75 years ago, when wealthy Ohio industrialist Elroy J.
