1965 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud IIIAward Winner, A/C, Proven Concours and Touring Excellence!
Winning Bid: $90,000
ONLINE ONLY AUCTION at www.classicpromenade.com. This is a beautiful example of the elegant 1965 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud III standard steel saloon that has an amazing history. This car has affectionately been called “Bob” and as accumulated 35,000 miles under its present ownership over the past seven years!! Yes, this concours quality Rolls has been driven 35,000 miles in the past seven years!
Bob (LSKP5) was ordered new from the New York dealership Rolls-Royce, Inc. and was then sold through Sausman Chevrolet in Lemoyne, Pennsylvania. The first owner was Mr. Benjamin F. Lucas, Jr. of Baltimore, Maryland and was delivered on May 27, 1965. At some point, Bob moved to California where a thorough restoration was performed. During the restoration, the color was changed to the present Mason’s Black. The Rolls was subsequently acquired by our friend Mr. John Ellison of the Calumet Collection in La Jolla, California. The car had accumulated a mere 38,000 miles and the restoration was enhanced further by our friend Pedro Meyer at the Calumet Collection. The Calumet Collection was comprised of about 40 stunning Rolls-Royce and Bentley motorcars.
In 2013, Bob was sold to the present owner, R. Lee Harman, MD who has thoroughly enjoyed and cared for Bob through numerous rallies and RROC Annual Meeting and events. Covering 35,000 miles over the past seven years, Bob has proven to be incredibly reliable and certainly comfortable!! Bob has won a multitude of concours events, including 1st place at the La Jolla Concours, 2nd place at the Arizona Concours (against a Delahaye and after driving it down from Seattle) and two of the highly coveted RROC Dudley Awards (furthest driven to a RROC Annual Meeting).
The livery is gorgeous in Mason’s Black with twin coachstripes in tan and spectacular chrome throughout. The black paint is beautiful with spectacular shine and luster. It is mirror smooth over the entire motorcar with only minor imperfections. There are very small particles in the paint in some areas (most likely minor dust when painted) and some fine surface scratching. There are also a few minor door dings evident, once again, only with a trained eye and with careful close inspection. The external cosmetics appear to be that of a three year old motorcar. On the drivers side are two very small bubbles above the coachstripes. We love the clear parking light lenses which were a US delivery only option and incredibly rare to see today.
The wheel covers are painted and pinstriped correctly as well and the chrome is beautiful. Actually, all the chrome appears perfect except the passenger side mirror has a minor dent.
The interior is breathtaking. The burled walnut veneer is absolutely gorgeous without any cracks or fading. It is simply beautiful. The beige leather is also nearly perfect in every regard. It is soft and without any blemishes that we’ve observed. The Wilton wool carpet is also spectacular and the mouton sheepskin overlays are in excellent condition. Nothing is more elegant and inviting than the interiors of the Silver Clouds. Next to the drivers side kick panel is a vintage mini fire extinguisher that looks right, especially for a tour veteran as this.
The air conditioning works very well and every detail of the car functions well. The stereo system has been upgraded to Sirius XM and also allows for either Bluetooth or plugging into your phone or iPad. Bob flew through our 158 point inspection with ease and the report is available for your review.
The engine compartment is in concours condition today, with only a slight amount of use evident. It would compete today very well in the RROC Touring Class. The trunk has all the small and large tools, pump, jack and spare. Bob comes with its owners manual, historical records and documentation.
We have Bob priced very competitively. The Hagerty No 2 value is $112,000 (adding 10% for air conditioning). It is extremely rare to find a Silver Cloud in this condition.
This Rolls is available for inspection at our Phoenix showroom. For more information and details, call, text or email Harry Clark at +1.602.245.7200 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
