1964 ROLLS-ROYCE SILVER CLOUD III CONTINENTAL JAMES YOUNG SCV100 SPORT SEDAN #LSGT635C 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 it’s 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 it’s 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 it’s next keeper.
