A 1920 Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost is set to headline the Shannons Melbourne Winter Classic on 13 July
The Rolls-Royce will form part of an exciting consignment for the Winter Classic sale in Australia, with 37 cars set to go under the hammer at Shannons annual event. Built in 1920, the Rolls has been subject of an older restoration, first shipped from the UK to Australia in its year of build.
Following its arrival on UK shores, the Ghost was given an open tourer body by owner Lance Dixon, courtesy of coachbuilder Kellow-Falkiner, prior to Salmon & Sons constructing a closed body in 1925.
Following 22 years of single ownership, the Rolls, now in its original open bodywork form, is expected to fetch between $260,000-$320,000.
Alongside the Ghost will be a green-1978 Bolwell Nagari, with the 5.8 lire V8 Australian muscle car available in excellent condition. Also up for sale this July will be a 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air ($50,000-60,000), a 1965 Pontiac Catalina ($30,000-40,000), and an Hispano-Suiza K6 Limousine- one of only 134 thought to have ever been built.
