To be OFFERED AT AUCTION at RMs Amelia Island event, March 14-14, 2015. To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmauctions.com/.4050 bhp, 468 cu. in. overhead-valve inline six-cylinder engine, three-speed manual transmission, solid front axle with semi-elliptic leaf springs, live rear axle with cantilever leaf-spring platform suspension, and four-wheel servo-assisted brakes. Wheelbase: 146.5 in.One of 67 built on Springfield Phantom I chassisNew York and Boston dealer trials carFascinating New York society ownership historyA CCCA Full Classic; excellent tour and CARavan carThis Springfield chassis Phantom I, number S359FM, was manufactured at the Rolls-Royce of America facility in the Massachusetts town of the same name. Records of the Rolls-Royce Foundation, copies of which are included on file, note that the car was built in 1927 and used as a trials car, also known as a dealer demonstrator, at the agencies in New York and Boston. It is highly possible that many of the famous names who enjoyed Phantom Is in the U.S. during this period took their first drive behind the wheel of this very car.Following its trials use, the car was sold new on December 27, 1928, to Arthur R. Seligman of New York City, which was just a month after it had arrived there. Mr. Seligman was the son of a prominent broker and member of the New York Stock Exchange, Maurice Seligman, and he was also a prominent socialite, sportsman, and yachtsman. This Phantom I continued its fascinating social history by eventually passing to Charles Barron Otis, an engineer and publisher of The American Banker, in 1936. Mr. Otis was a member of a prominent Boston family and a relative of the Otis family, which owned the Los Angeles Times, as well as Amelia Earhart!By the time that Mr. Otis purchased the Phantom I, it had been rebodied as the present Newmarket Convertible Sedan, one of sixty-seven built by Brewster to a design that would be copied almost line by line from California coachbuilders Murphy. The styling has beautiful, almost light lines, which were created by thin window pillars, large window glass, and a delicate beltline molding. These features were all typical of Murphy but unusual for a four-door convertible of this era.The car features all of the ornate accessories that are typical of a Rolls-Royce from this period, including chrome wire wheels wrapped in wide whitewall tires, dual side-mounted spares that are shod in cloth covers with belted mirrors, and a body-color metal trunk. The French-made Marchal headlamps were a popular accessory for wealthy American motorists. Inside is correctly upholstered in leather and with wool carpeting.This handsome and well-maintained Rolls-Royce has recently been driven 1,000 miles in its present ownership and has won an Amelia Island Concours Class Award and Best in Class at the Radnor Hunt and Mirror Lake Classic Concours. It is also described as being in excellent mechanical condition, just as surely as it was on Wall Street so many years ago.

French title - Rare LHD European version - Recent work, excellent condition - Exclusive and luxurious model - No reserve This first series Rolls Royce Corniche coupé is a European model, being left-hand drive and with kilometric speedometer, making it very rare. The previous owner bought it from Germany in 2011, and had work carried out by XG Automobiles, in Asnières-sur-Seine, costing more than €12,000. This included replacing brake hoses and discs, recharging the air-conditioning, a new exhaust and various other minor jobs to ensure the car was performing at its best. In 2012, the same specialist replaced the rear shock absorbers, the suspension mountings and tyres. He also adjusted the front axle, with the work totalling €5,500, as shown in the invoices that come with the car. Today, the odometer records 121,462km. Elegantly presented in metallic midnight blue with well-preserved blue leather upholstery, the car features a Nardi steering wheel. Having benefitted from regular maintenance, it is offered in good working order and presentation. Here is a wonderful example of a particularly exclusive Rolls Royce, bodied by Mulliner Park Ward, and highly desirable in this rare left-hand drive version.

French title - One of the first Corniches - 40 years in sunny California - Only three owners - No reserve Designed by Bill Allen and produced by Mulliner Park Ward, the Corniche accurately reflected the stylistic features of the Silver Shadow and its mechanical characteristics: evidence of its success was the model's 25-year career, in which time 7,000 Corniches were sold. This car dating from 1971 is therefore one of the first Rolls Royce Corniche produced. The car was sold new in California Beverly Hills its first owner, who had the car till 2002, when it was sold to his nephew. The latter owned the car for 10 years and it was eventually sold in 2012 in our Retromobile auction. The car has always remained in the California sun and shows no trace of oxidation or of any accident. It now boasts 70,485 miles and is in good original condition, whether it's the equipment, as well as the leather, the wood and the carpet. The body was repainted in the 1990s in the original color. In mechanical terms, it has the same powertrain. The engine is in very good condition, appears to be very refined and oil pressure is excellent. Brakes, hydraulics, electrical have all been revised and the driving condition of the car is indeed very good. Among the Rolls-Royces available in the market, it is rare to find an example of one that has a past that is so clean and well documented. Plus the fact that it is a model from the very first generation, a peaceful automatic that makes this car so very special.

French title Engine No. W21G - Beautiful condition - High class model - Well serviced - No reserve - Ex- Gloria Guiness This Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith was one of the last generations of cars still equipped with a special body made by a coachbuilder. For the car on offer it was Hooper who realized this sedan as a coupe-chauffeur with opposing doors. It features all the amenities going with its top class quality and luxury: power windows separating the driver, a liquor cabinet, folding seats, retractable picnic tables in the boot, foot rests for the rear seats, vanity mirrors and roof lights... It is not by chance that this Silver Wraith was delivered new to Gloria Guinness, voted "the most elegant woman in the world" in 1960. This car is powered by a six-cylinder in-line engine of 4887cc, reaching easily a speed of 140 km/h, in silence and the privacy of its luxurious cabin. The current collector owns the car since 1999 and in 2000 it underwent several works: restoration of the upholstery and the interior woodwork, rehabilitation of the clutch, brake adjustment, the radiator was changed, an electronic ignition was installed and the spark plugs replaced, plus rehabilitation of the exhaust manifold. Equipped with new tyres recently, this car is registered with the Mark VI & Silver Wraith Register. It is a car of choice that Rolls-Royce fans will really appreciate.

1933 Rolls-Royce Phantom II Continental Chassis number 101MW, specified with Park Ward Standardized Touring Saloon Coachwork was sold as a complete car in September 1933 for £1950, a remarkable low price compared to similar cars which sold for new for £2425 plus accessories. In 1968 the car had been shipped to America and owned by Richard A Oldenburg who carried out a complete restoration which started in 1963 and was completed in 1984, reputedly costing £130,000. Mr Oldenburg owned 101MW for some 40 years before the car was repatriated back to the UK. Still complete with its original Park Ward coachwork, the car is today finished in Burgundy over Black with Burgundy hide trim and being an older restoration is showing some patina. The car has been owned by the current custodian since 2010 and has been subject to considerable recent expense. Work includes a total engine overhaul, an overdrive has been installed and the "Hartford" type shock absorbers have been re commissioned, along with a new stainless steel exhaust being fitted. All necessary repairs have been made to the chassis and running gear with considerable supporting documentation. This beautiful Phantom II Continental is perfect for long distance touring in supreme style.

To be OFFERED AT AUCTION at Auction Americas Fort Lauderdale event, March 27-29, 2015. Estimate:$ 60,000 - $ 70,000 The styling of the magnificent Rolls-Royce Corniche Drophead Coupe (aka; convertible) remained essentially unchanged since 1967, when John Blatchleys fine design was first introduced as the Silver Shadow and Bentley T Series drophead coupes. There was initially consideration given to restyling the Corniche to give it a closer family resemblance to the Silver Spirit range of cars, possibly using the four-door saloons front wings and hood. Peter Wharton, Mulliner Park Ward stylist prepared drawings and a color-wash painting, and there was a mock-up built to full scale. However, a decision was made to continue in this more traditional styling, and in retrospect, this may have been an exceedingly wise commercial choice. The Rolls-Royce Corniche is timeless; they demonstrate continuing interest with great desirability of ownership. Offered here is a Rolls-Royce Corniche III finished in off-white with a parchment leather interior with complementary and beautiful burled walnut wooden veneers. The Corniche III was a complete evolution of refinements over the previous Corniche II, with many new features that included: alloy wheels, newly revised interior, advanced suspension, airbags and color-coated bumpers. This lovely example has the strong and steady 6.75-liter V-8 engine with a smooth automatic transmission, and stopping power from four-wheel disc brakes. Showing great exclusiveness, sources indicate that less than 500 similar cars were built. Among the niceties are air conditioning and power features galore, as one would expect from a motorcar of this stature. The Corniche is one the most recognized Rolls-Royce models ever made and is ready with many luxuries for its next owner to enjoy.

To be OFFERED AT AUCTION at Auction Americas Fort Lauderdale event, March 27-29, 2015. Estimate:$ 55,000 - $ 65,000 A Rolls-Royce is perhaps the ultimate gentlemans car, which may be why the marque figures so prominently in many established collections. For a socialite of this golden era, there was a no more proper automobile for arriving at special occasions during the social season. The Silver Cloud II, while virtually unchanged in outward appearance from its immediate predecessor, is powered by an eight-cylinder vee-configured unit that measures 6.2-liters and develops 185 horsepower with cast aluminum block and heads. This new-for-1962 engine was touted as being no heavier than its straight six-cylinder predecessor, and its layout resulted in respectable power without undue stress in any speed range. Every part of the Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud, down to the smallest detail, is designed with the utmost care and assembled with the same integrity by individual master craftsmen. It was this unquestioned attention to detail, along with the many years of Rolls-Royce engineering experience, that justified the numerous claims, in period, that this represented the best car in the world. The handsome lines were deemed to be modern, yet restrained dignified, yet efficient, and most importantly, pleasing to the eye. The body was carefully insulated from the chassis, so even when motoring in excess of 100 miles per hour, there is an uncanny degree of silence within the car. The interior features wide, luxurious seating which can accommodate five to six adults, and is highlighted by gorgeous burled walnut wood trim; a hallmark of this most respected Rolls-Royce. Exclusiveness and luxury were commonplace throughout this platform. Additional features on this burgundy over black two-tone example includes tan leather hides, left-hand drive, radio with CD, air conditioning, power steering, P235 X 75R15 tires with steel rims and proper covers, plus a custom steering wheel. The car has been restored, highlighting the inherent refinements that Rolls-Royce is famous for.

To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmauctions.com/.178 bhp, 4,877 cc F-head inline six-cylinder engine with twin two-inch SU carburetors, four-speed automatic transmission, independent front suspension with coil springs and hydraulic dampers, rear semi-elliptic springs with controllable hydraulic dampers, and self-adjusting hydraulic front brakes with combined hydraulic and mechanical rear brakes with servo-assist. Wheelbase: 123 in.One of 13 built and 10 left-hand-drive examplesBuilt for noted industrialist and sportsman Norman Paul ButlerNumerous original special features, including a Rolls-Royce tachometerAward-winning restoration at multiple national concoursRolls-Royce Foundation documentationBeginning about halfway through the production run of the Silver Cloud I, Rolls-Royce offered a drophead coupe by H.J. Mulliner, style number 7504. Unlike previous Mulliner Drophead Coupes on this chassis, the new car, referred to as an adaptation, made use of a Standard Steel Saloon body shell, which was heavily modified by Mulliner. This would be the standard method of construction for most Mulliner Drophead Coupes through to the end of the Silver Cloud series in 1965. No others were as rare as the Silver Cloud I variant, of which 13 were built, with 10 being left-hand-drive examples.The car offered here, chassis number LSMH57, is perhaps the finest restored example of a Silver Cloud I Drophead Coupe Adaptation known to exist. It was built for Norman Paul Butler, a founder of Oak Brook, Illinois, as well as the Oak Brook Polo Club and the Butler National Golf Course. Mr. Butler specified numerous unique features for his Rolls-Royce, including a dashboard-mounted Rolls-Royce tachometer, power-assisted steering, power windows, a power top, dual fog lights, and a rear seat that had been designed to fold flat, forming a platform for additional luggage for touring. These specifications cost the original owner nearly $15,000, which was a tremendous sum in 1959, especially when a new Chevrolet at that time cost around $2,500!Mr. Butler took delivery of the car in New York on May 15, 1959, and it had an unusual British license plate, BC33, one of the first to be issued (in December 1903, in Leicester), as specially requested by the new owner. He would take it to Ireland in 1965, where he would join his family at Kilboy Castle in Tipparary.The present owners had the good fortune to rescue this significant Rolls-Royce in 2000. A complete body-off restoration was meticulously undertaken to original factory standards by Mark Schlachter, of Metalkraft Coachwerkes, who is one of the top coachbuilders in the country. Taris Charysyn and Company created fitted luggage for the trunk and the rear seat luggage platform, and they were made to the factorys original specifications. The owner even commissioned a set of his-and-hers directors seats to be used at showings, as well as a wooden steering wheel that matched the interior trim; although the original steering wheel is also supplied.This magnificently restored Silver Cloud I won the Silver Cloud/Phantom V Concours class at the 2012 Rolls-Royce Owners Club National Meeting and also the Shamrock Award for the Most Improved Post-War Car. It went on to secure the Collector Foreign Best of Class and the Carl H. Lindner Trophy for Best Rolls-Royce/Bentley at the Ault Park Concours in Cincinnati in 2014, and it was also shown that year here at Amelia Island.This outstanding Rolls-Royce, of extraordinary beauty and rarity and with known history and a painstaking restoration, is an exceptional motor car.

One of only 530 When new, the most expensive car in the world! A great period colour combination Manufactured from 1975 through to 1986, there were only a 530 cars built during its 11 year production run. Known as the first post-war production Rolls-Royce not designed in-house, it was the flagship model and this was reflected in the price – for a time, the most expensive car in the world. Designed by Paolo Martin at Pininfarina, it was built in-house at Mulliner Park Ward. This magnificent range-topping coupe has the benefit of the appropriately period colour of ‘Willow Mist metallic’ with Olive leather interior as well as a most comprehensive service history! An acquired taste in the classic Rolls Royce world but, being so rare, we really believe that this will certainly become an investment to watch! This vehicle has an MOT Certificate until May 2015 and is available for viewing at our showroom.

1965 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud III Continental Flying Spur By HJ Mulliner Park Ward.

Estimate:$ 80,000 - $100,000 120 bhp, 7,688 cc OHV inline six-cylinder engine with a single two-jet carburetor, four-speed manual gearbox, front and rear semi-elliptic leaf-spring suspension, and four-wheel servo-assisted brakes. Wheelbase: 144 in.Formerly owned by the Earl of Moray, ScotlandEarly, era-correct Shooting Brake body replacementDocumented history; original engine and gearboxThe Phantom II, which was introduced in September 1929, was the last model produced before Sir Frederick Henry Royce, OBE, died in 1933. Its 7.9-liter engine was much faster than any previous Rolls-Royce. Its lowered chassis, with its distinctive radiator shell now placed directly above the I-beam front axle, lowered its stance, and its bonnet measured nearly half its entire body length, creating a handsome, sleek appearance.This car was originally delivered as an understated Weymann fabric-bodied saloon to its first owner, S.C. Harrison of Birmingham, and then it was sold within the next 10 months to W.F. Player, of Nottingham. The fabric body was not as robust as its chassis, the Rolls-Royce part of the car, so rather than retire a reliable and powerful car wearing a worn out body, it was re-born as a Shooting Brake. While Americans refer to this body style as a station wagon, the term Shooting Brake originated from across the pond. As a New York Times article read, the style was intended to take gentlemen on the hunt with their firearms and dogs.As Rolls-Royce Foundation archives confirm, the car was sold in 1962 to a well-known Scottish car collector and sportsman, a descendant of King James V of Scotland, the Earl of Moray, where it remained with other notable cars in his collection, including the Le Mans Alfa Romeo 2.9 Aerodynamic Coupe and Count Zborowskis Hispano-Suiza. Twenty years later, another collector, Charles Bickley of Florida, found and acquired the car. He brought it to the United States, where it was restored and repainted in its current dark green finish. It then joined other notable cars in his Woodie World museum.The spacious interior reveals three rows of seating upholstered in rich green leather, matching dark green fitted carpet, and many period details, including the original walnut instrument panel and trim rails and a brilliantly crafted ribbed and cross-braced wooden headliner. Under the long, gleaming bonnet, the massive engine presents very correctly, much as it did in 1930. Bespoke period accessories include a tinted windscreen visor, a passenger-side Raydyot spot light, a single side-mounted spare tire, laced wheels, original Lucas headlamps, a single Trippe driving lamp, and front wing-marker lamps.This car has been shown at Rolls-Royce Owners Club and Classic Car Club of America events and has reliably participated in CCCA week-long caravans. In other words, this charming example of a period-correct Rolls-Royce Shooting Brake is ready to show or go. This car has been well-sorted and meticulously prepared for its fortunate new owner, and it is sure to be welcomed to the finest concours events. Most importantly, it is a car that will be great fun, participating in car club events, long-distance touring, or a Sunday afternoon family tailgate at the local shooting range.Regrettably, a Purdey shotgun, pair of Wellies, and a Scottish deer hound are not included in the sale.
