The 1924 Rolls Royce Silver Ghost was a classic Pre-World War II model Rolls Royce car that came with a 144 wheelbase, or a 150.5 long-wheelbase version. It was powerful for the time, spacious, and one of the most elegant cars on the market in the 1920s. Its exquisite exterior was crafted by the coachbuilder Barker and served as an inspiration for future versions of the Rolls Royce car. It also came with a 7428cc inline-six engine and four-speed manual transmission. While the Silver Ghost is no powerhouse in modern terms, with approximately 50hp and a maximum speed around 80 mph, it was considered to be a top performance car in the 1920s. It was even considered to be one of the finest automobiles in the world by Autocar magazine.
