1910 Rolls Royce Shooting Brake by Croall & Croall

Among the Rolls Royce materials recently acquired are a number of holiday cards from the Newmans. Prior to his passing, Millard Newman had a spectacular collection of Rolls Royces and apparently he shard them with friends at the holidays. This car caught my eye so I thought I'd share it. This 1910 Rolls Royce Silver Ghost (chassis 1246) is bodied by Croall & Croall of Kelso, Scottland. The car was ordered by the seventh Duke of Buccleuch (John Charles Montagu, the great-uncle of Lord Montagu of Beaulieu). Apparently, this car is the fourth oldest Silver Ghost wearing its original coachwork. One of the many unique features of this car is its stag's head mascot on the radiator. This fantastically original car is now in the wonderful collection of Evert Louwman. His recently opened museum is at the Hague, Netherlands - http://www.louwmanmuseum.nl/asp/appmain.asp?appactie=collectiedetail&taalcd=en&collsq=5406
