1961 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud II HJ Mulliner Adaptation - Design number 7504 - Under Offer

So rare are these wonderful convertible Clouds and hardly suprising when one considers how very expensive they were at the time - costing 1/3 more than a normal Rolls-Royce or Bentley

Most were produced and sent to the USA - indeed of the 110 cars of both types converted by HJ Mulliner's Chiswick coachworks, 74 were produced to this LHD specification

Our magnificent specimen was shipped, per "MV Loch Gowan" to Los Angeles from London on the 1st February 1961

Her first lucky owner was Mr Pardee Erdman of Santa Barbara and the guarantee date was 21st July 1961

He specified many non standard features, increasing further her heady new price

Electric hood operation

Refrigeration

Electric windows

Lambswool rug

Radio

Sundym glass

Heavy gauge frame

Mirror to drivers vent frame

Firestone whiteband tyres

She was Masons black with beige upholstery and a fawn hood originally and indeed stayed in this specification until our most recent keeper brought her in 2010 and undertook a refurbishment programme

He has very many coachbuilt Crewe products and his usual team stripped her bodywork and trim in readiness for a total sort out

Having said that when he purchased her she was described as being in very clean condition - he is such a perfectionist, he would have known when he purchased her that what was smart enough for them, was a good base for his proposed restorative project

Being a well known style guru he chose some magnificent colours for our Adaptation and she certainly cuts a swath in any company and at any venue - our pictures truly do not show just how magnificent she really is

Lustrous paintwork, soft putty like leathers, wilton carpets, mirror finished veneers, silky smooth drive train with effortless performance from the V8 engine and 4 speed automatic transmission - the most elegant manner in which to tour the French Riviera, Italian Riviera (Liguria), the Cotswolds or even our neighbouring Knightsbridge

She is simply breathtaking with aquality of workmanship which is quite outstanding

If you desire one of these look no further, for you have found "the one"
