Known History

 

1964 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud III Drophead Coupe by H. J. Mulliner Park Ward

s/n LSFU 785

White with Red Leather Interior

 

Rolls-Royce’s Silver Clouds represent the last of the coachbuilt cars, and while most examples featured the standard steel saloon bodies, a few were built with striking H. J. Mulliner Park Ward bodywork. These bodies were well-proportioned and elegant, and later cars such as this one were motivated by the all new 6.2 liter V8 engine. These cars were modern and as edgy as could be expected from Rolls-Royce at the time. Indeed, these cars were meant for powerful and wealthy owner-drivers, and appealed to captains of industry and celebrities, who incidentally, were among the few who could afford to purchase them.

 

This particular car is a lovely solid car that had one owner until 2002, and now belongs to a collector with several other Rolls-Royces and Bentleys. In the last year, he spent about $8000 to mechanically service this car, including brake system rebuild and power steering service.

 

Cosmetically, the car makes a nice presentation, with straight panels and good fit. There is no corrosion visible, and the paint is attractive, though close inspection reveals finish blemishes. The chrome is in good shape, with some light pitting and haze. The lights and glass are excellent, as is the top.

 

The interior appears to be predominantly original and has a lovely patina. The wood is excellent, with glossy finish and no noteworthy cracks or other deterioration to the finish. The leather has a nice patina, and the carpets are in excellent order. The switches, controls, and instruments are in excellent shape.

 

The engine compartment is clean and correct, with a nice honest feel. The correct finishes are in evidence, including the wrinkle finish on the airbox and the gloss finish on the cylinder head cover. The trunk is nice, with original jack and high quality wool carpet, which is largely intact, but does show a bit of wear.

 

This is a great opportunity to acquire an extremely rare left hand drive open Rolls-Royce, one of the last coachbuilt examples. This car has a lovely unmolested feel to it, which is supported by its long term ownership.
