Sold for $22,750 at 2009 Palm Springs Exotic Car Auctions - November 22, 2009.
The Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud Sport Saloon by James Young Ltd. was introduced during the second year of the Silver Cloud production. Just 24 examples of this body styles were built. At a list price of $19,600 they were a 50 percent premium over the contemporary works-built Silver Cloud saloon.

The Silver Cloud had a handcrafted aluminum body and custom appointed interior. The Silver Cloud 4.9-liter inline-six engine had aluminum cylinder heads and twin SU carburetors. Rolls-Royce built the automatic transmission, a 4-speed GM Hydra-matic, under license.

This right-hand drive Sport Saloon with coachwork by James Young of Bromley was delivered new in April of 1956. It was originally owned by Hubert Daniel, of the UK. The second owner was a San Diego Rolls-Royce Club member. It later passed to another Californian, who kept it for five years. In 2009, the car was purchased by the current owner (a British car specialist and the fourth owner).

The car has won Best in Show, Best in Class and First Place honors at various California events.

The odometer on the car currently shows 66,481 miles.

In 2012, the car was offered for sale at the Quail Lodge Sale in Carmel, CA presented by Bonhams Auction. The car was estimated to sell for $50,000 - $60,000 but was unable to find a buyer willing to satisfy its reserve. It left the auction unsold.
