1964 ROLLS-ROYCE SILVER CLOUD III JAMES YOUNG SCV100 SPORT SEDAN
ONE OF 2 LEFT DRIVES BUILT
One of only two left drive specimens of this aluminum bodied Sports
Saloon built and the only one known by us to exist, this remarkably
well preserved exciting performer was recently acquired from the
Estate of its second owner, a notable long time enthusiastic
collector of coachbuilt Rolls Royces, the pioneering televangelist
known as the Reverend Ike.
Originally supplied to Mr. Julian S. Friedman of San Francisco,
California by Jack Barclay, it is a true bespoke effort accompanied
by an extensive correspondence file between those two parties
showing the demanding nature of the commission.Finished as
originally supplied in James Young T.6747 Blue as selected from
three color samples provided complemented by specially ordered
Baroda Blue VM 9040 Connolly hides and very efficient original
equipment air conditioning, this beautiful example has spent its
entire life in California. The present odometer reading of 22,653
is likely correct though undocumented.
The car did perform well upon arrival but as we had no record of
previous engine overhaul during the past half century, we have
elected to perform that operation in order to ensure the pleasure
of its next keeper.
