It seems. If I'm not wrong it was sold a year ago.

It must be a close thing, the older one sold for $7.25M last October I think.

Here is the last one I saw. It's a semi enclosed body. (Just see how tall it is !)
But I remember having seen a full enclosed (i.e. Corgi type ) painted in black.

Another 1912 Silver Ghost Hamshaw Limousine, it has similar looks.

Love the wood colour on that one Stephane, and yes that really is a tall car.


The Hamshaw in that colour doesn't look elegant to me i'm afraid.

Same here, the scan shows a softer tone of yellow than in reality; making it look more like a banana advert.

By the way got these two, found them on the Dutch site Marketplace, a tenner each.

What a strange colour to paint a Rolls, takes away the class of the car.


Oh those 2 are very nice, what a great pick up at that price. I'm just going to have to get a pair now to go with my Silver one

Perhaps this is more like it.

Some lovely cars being shown. That yellow is not that bad, I kinda like it.


Who are those two Rollers made by Gerrit?

Hi Dinkyjay, those 2 are Corgi Classics, 1985 reissues out of a seris of 3 different colors.


Previously a 1966 model only in silver grey.


There is also a very colorful one  the so called Hardy Boys (picture from Google) .

Yes Gerrit that one is certainly much more like it, it's got lots of class, beautiful.


I've not collected the Hardy Boys animated one, colourful is right but oh so garish.

Baskingshark made a very complete article about that toy. I translated it into French and made new pictures.
Then it is here : www.corky.fr/?page_id=713
But you surely better have to find his English article.

Great page Stéphane. thanks a lot.


I have a question regarding the Corgi 1912 Ghost. I found several models with a gold coloured and several with a silver coloured roof rack, both having jewelled headlights.


Is this correct?

It seems that only two type of  roof have been seen. But even the RR model bible don't notice it while it shows the two types.


So I can't say anything more about it. Sorry.
