Happy Client...

I worked with Jim to buy a Porsche 911 Cabriolet; I’d been looking for a Cabriolet in great condition for about a year and contacted Jim.  Working with him via text, email and phone was simple and streamlined plus he’s a very interesting guy who is genuinely passionate about cars and about a straight forward sales process. 

I’d never purchased a car sight-unseen from an out of state seller — so I had some reservations, however Jim said all the right things, produced all the right support and responded quickly.  The entire process took less time than I originally thought it might and the car exceeded my expectations. 

Thank you again, Ann (Cincinnati, Ohio) March 13, 2018

Description
1926 Rolls-Royce 45/50hp Silver Ghost 'Warwick' Town Car with open front compartment.Coachwork by BrewsterRegistration no. DS 6498Chassis no. S165MLEngine no. 20655For only $179,500 New Price: $165,000This Springfield-built, left-hand drive Silver Ghost's first owner was none other than William Brewster, head of the firm responsible for its body. By the time this car was made it had become apparent that left-hand drive was essential for the North American market, an alteration to the Ghost chassis that necessitated the adoption of a new three-speed gearbox with central change. Four-wheel brakes likewise had come to be seen as a necessity rather than an indulgence, though the American version used the New Phantom front axle together with a Westinghouse vacuum booster rather than the British Ghost's mechanical servo. 'S165ML' was the test chassis for this modification, which remains in place to this day.In 1927 'S165ML' passed to its second owner, Mrs Mary Dahlgren Robinson of Rye, New York and in the 1950s was owned in Abington, Pennsylvania by two members of the Schaub family. The next owner listed in the accompanying records is one Duncan Merryweather of Chester Springs, PA followed by Otto C Kohler of South Hadley, Massachusetts and then E Andrew Mowbray of Lincoln, Rhode Island, who was the owner when an article about the car was published in the Veteran Motor Car Club of America's journal 'Bulb Horn' (November/December 1978 edition, copy available).Its next change of ownership would see 'S165ML' return to the UK, where it found a new home with Jack Bradley of Glasgow in 1979. Mr Bradley kept the Rolls-Royce until August 2009 when he sold it to the Real Car Co, from whom it was purchased by the current vendor in June 2010. The tappets were set by Alan Glew in July 2010 and he pronounced the engine healthy, and the owner drove the car approximately 1,500 miles that year. Outings included taking the Silver Ghost to the GRRC members' enclosure at the Goodwood Re
