Drophead Coupe
Coachwork: Mulliner
Chassis Num: LSCX 789
Engine Num: SX394C
High bid of $500,000 at 2015 Keno Brothers. (did not sell)
Most of the Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud III models were bodied as a saloon, however, those with the means could order bespoke coachwork through coachbuilder Mulliner Parks Ward. This particular car, is one such example, and one of only 27 left-hand-drive 'adaptations' constructed by the coachbuilder.

The original owner of this car was William M. Young of Wilmington, Delaware who had it sent to Mulliner Park Ward to receive Drophead Coupe 10018 (body design number 2007). Upon completion is was finished in Shell Grey with a black Connolly leather interior. It was equipped with Sundyn glass, power windows, power-operated top, power aerial, white sidewall tires, and a Lucas driver's side mirror. It was completed and shipped to J.S. Inskip Rolls-Royce in New York on May 24, 1963, aboard the Belgian car ferry, Mv Prinses Josephine Charlotte.

It was sold to its next caretaker in 1965, who retained it for approximately four decades. Its new owner, Michel Kruch of Belgium, treated the car to a re-freshening.
