Chassis # 390XH The Silver Ghost Riviera Towncar is one of the most opulent Rolls ever built. The Riviera design was considered the opitome of Brewster coachwork.
Fine carriage lamps are mounted behind the mahognany trimmed chauffeur's compartment that is upholstered in black leather. The passenger compartment is uplholstered in black/gray cloth and embellished with an elaborate petit-point desing. The chauffers seat is original leather and in great condition. It shows dull in the pictures, however, is black in a real viewing. The hardware is gold-plated Gorham and the wood garnish moldings are inlaid in a floral marquestry pattern of rare woods handcrafted in Venice, Italy by order of the original owner.
Although restored in the 1970's the Rolls still presents extremely well.
The entire motor was dismantled in 2011 and restored to perfection by a marque expert. The Rolls is now ready to be enjoyed again on the road and Show field. It won first prize awards in the 1970's at many shows with its 100 point restoration. Please schedule a visit to inspect this masterpiece.
