1963 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud III James Young SCT100 "Baby Phantom" #LCAL17

The second of only 7 left drives built to this configuration from 1963-1965, only two of which were supplied with individual front seating rather than divider partitions. History: The very comprehensive copies of the factory & coachbuilder records show William Harrah as the first owner. Mr. Harrah was a pioneer automobile enthusiast who established a fantastic 3,000+ car museum at his hotel & casino facility in Reno, Nevada. He also owned Modern Classic Motors, the Rolls-Royce & Ferrari distributorship for that area of the US. LCAL17 was delivered to Mr. Harrah on 7 November, 1962 finished in two shades of Grey with Blue-Grey Cord broadcloth (rather than leather) interior. The effectiveness of the original limousine specification air conditioning & engine cooling systems have since been dramatically increased by ourselves utilizing more modern technology. The Blaupunkt AM-FM radio & glovebox door mounted altimeter shown were part of the original specification. It was part of Mr. Harrah's legendary stable of Rolls-Royces until it's resale a few years later to a well-known celebrity entertainer & personal friend of his (name upon request) who reportedly admired the color layout used for 5LVF129, a 6,500+ mile 1967 James Young PV16 Formal Limousine displayed in the museum. This car was refinished to his order in the same Mercer Brown TN927 lacquer with its present day VM859 Chestnut Connolly hides. The Walnut Burl veneers since refinished by ourselves compliment the interior beautifully. This never damaged specimen remained in his collection until late 2013 when it was purchased through an agent by ourselves & supplied to its third careful owner after we carefully prepared it to show standards per the request of that gentleman. The odometer reading at that time was 96,369. Recently traded back to us against a James Young PV23 Touring Limousine, it has traveled only 785 miles since. The dated Mercer Brown exterior has been freshly re-lacquered in Antelope over Garnet, an especially elegant color layout of the era. This spectacular performer is by far the finest (& perhaps the only) left drive SCT100 available anywhere in the world.

1994 Bentley Continental IV – 2nd Series Convertible #RCX50026 29,327 Miles

A Real Palm Beach Head Turner. Strikingly finished in Acrylic White with Parchment top and hides piped White, this very well maintained 29,327 mile specimen is one of only eight normally aspirated examples known to have been supplied to the United States of a total production of 15 left hand drives. A recent acquisition from the gentleman to whom we supplied it to in December 2003 at 21,004 miles, it has never suffered any collision damage nor are there any other undisclosed issues with any aspect of the automobile. The above quote is properly attributed to him and definitely agreed to by us. The second (50,000 series) version of the Corniche IV and its much rarer Bentley Continental counterpart differs materially from its earlier cousins in the area of roof design, Cosworth designed late specification engine with accompanying ZYTEK management systems and right side air bag. It is the last of the line of this modern classic body style and is in many ways superior to its early Azure replacement. Nicely optioned with winged "B" mascot to the radiator shell, this remarkably smooth, strong performer has been thoroughly prepared so as to deserve addition to anyone's stable. Copies of our internal repair order for the various operations involved which included a new correct Everflex roof and English Wool broadcloth headliner accompany the vehicle, along with its complete book package and tools.

1963 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud III H.J. Mulliner Convertible – LSCX447 – 74,592 Km (44,755 Miles)

One of 27 left drives built, this specimen was delivered to Mrs. Dan-Axel Brostrom of Stockholm, Sweden on March 2, 1963 with an interesting host of special options including removable headrest to the right front seat, special veneers to match those in an S3 Flying Spur (BC16LXA), compartment to rear center armrest with hinged lid, dashboard mounted tachometer to replace the left side cubby box and more. Mr. Brostrom was the scion of the Brostrom Shipbuilding Family and from 1961-1965 was married to the actress Anabelle Lee. For a few years the car became the property of a well known Hollywood producer and automobile enthusiast who resold it to a noted Beverly Hills designer in 1970 according to a loan document in its files dated May 11, 1970. It was acquired from that lady by ourselves through an agent in January 1987 and supplied to a Miami, Florida based economics professor one month later. That gentleman later sold it through a New York collectible car dealer to the same Hollywood film producer (his second ownership of the automobile) who in 1998 allowed us to acquire it as part of an important group of Rolls-Royce and Bentleys being assembled for an enthusiastic gentlemen who later entrusted it to a reliable museum facility which held it from 2002 until we reacquired it in November 2009. It has been part of two important collections since a complete and thorough upgrade of the December 2010 restoration and is in virtually the same Concours condition today. The Dusk Grey lacquer finish is a fine compliment to the fresh Scarlet Connolly hide interior, both colors as originally supplied. The interior wood veneers have been refinished to show quality for the first time since 1963. The mechanical aspects of this never damaged, very strong exciting performer have been freshly upgraded to provide years of reliable enjoyment to it's eighth owner in over 54 years. As part of the process the underside, engine, engine bay and wiring were brought to Concours standards as well. Unlike some European delivered examples, it is equipped with original equipment air conditioning and power window lifts. Complete tools and correct original owner's handbook complete the package. The daughter of the first owner has kindly provided us with copies of original photos of her mother with the car. These are the black & white shots shown. The present odometer reading is 74,592 kilometers (approximately 44,755 miles) and the known history, lack of wear to key indicators and what older service exists tend to confirm it. This is by far the finest of necessarily few real left drives available anywhere.

1964 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud III Owner Driven Standard Sedan #LSFU389 37,253 Miles

A wonderful performer finished as originally supplied in Mason's Black lacquer accented by genuine VM3234 Beige Connolly hides piped VM8500 Black. An extensive mechanical and cosmetic refurbishment was carried out by ourselves in late 1994-early 1995 at 32,536 miles to the order of the Rolls-Royce distributor for Puerto Rico, a most meticulous individual and (still) a delight to deal with. As part of those efforts, very efficient, properly ducted twin air conditioners were installed and the cooling system was upgraded to suit. This is among the finest Silver Cloud III Sedans available anywhere in the world. Correct owner's manual, near-mint condition small and large tools, copies of the factory build sheets and ownership pedigree encompassing the last quarter – century are part of the package. A road test of this specimen will serve to confirm its manufacturer's advertised claim that it was "The Best Car In The World" at the time.

2003 Bentley Continental R Coupe 420 HP TURBO #3CX01874 – 36,508 MILES

The last one ever built and a true modern day classic finished Black with Black hides stitched Red. This extremely well care for "No Stories" example has traveled but 36,508 miles since new, an average of only 2,434 miles per year, including an extensive trouble free 2014 road trip while in the hands of it's very meticulous owner. The service file and list of awards won accompany the vehicle. There are no known defects to any aspect of this exceptional performer. The original books and tools are complete. It is according to published records, the only 2003 MY Continental R delivered.
