This 1963 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud III Drophead Coupe with coachwork by H.J. Mulliner was once in the care of legendary singer and dancer, Sammy Davis Jr. Mr. Davis Jr. purchased the car in April of 1963. The car was painted in period Sand livery with a beige interior. Tinted 'sundym' glass, electric front windows and a companion, containing notebook, compact and cigarette case in the rear armrest, are all listed as requirements for this special order.
The next owner of the car was Rolls-Royce dealer John J. Schaler III of Indianapolis before being sold to another L.A. owner, Robert Wells. The history of the car was lost from that point, but it re-surfaced in the 1990s when it was sold publicly in Scottsdale, Arizona. The listing stated the car had received a complete restoration, which included a bare metal respray to maroon paint, engine rebuild, transmission rebuild, new brakes, all chrome re-plated and a new interior. The car was purchased and sent to Germany. It returned to the United States in 2010. Since that time, the car has been re-painted to its original Sand color scheme.
In 2011, this vehicle was offered for sale at the Quail Lodge auction presented by Bonhams. It was estimated to sell for $475,000 - $550,000 but its reserve was not met and the car would leave the auction unsold.Also photographed at :
