1914 Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost Alpine Eagle

This 1914 Rolls-Royce Ghost caught my attention at Amelia Island because it was owned by a friend for a number of years. The car is now owned by John Bentley who has an extensive collection of Rolls-Royces (and other cars). This is a very desirable early Ghost (per WWI) as it is one of the few to retain its original body and it is also a genuine alpine eagle chassis. The car has a notable history including ownership by Everett Dickinson (from CT) who was an early editor for the VMCCA's Blub Horn and a founding member of the Sports Car Club of America.

Not only did Mr. Bentley ship this Rolls-Royce Ghost to Amelia, he also sent another 1914 Rolls-Royce - a running bodiless Alpine Eagle chassis to show along side. What a fantastic pair - the chassis made quite a racket (a lovely racket) as it seemed to be running without a proper muffler.
