1960 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud II

Chassis number : LSRA19

Share on:

Sold for $210,000 at 2021 Bonhams : Quail Lodge.
H.J. Mulliner's convertible coupe coachwork for the Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud II is known today as the 'Mulliner Adaptation.' The hand-crafted work demanded a hefty premium with prices approximately 30-percent higher than the standard Silver Cloud II four-door saloon, which already ranked among the most expensive cars in the world. A total of 107 examples of the Silver Cloud II / S2 were built.

This particular example is one of 74 examples built in left-hand drive configuration. The Drophead was ordered by Rolls-Royce Inc. for J.S. Inskip and delivered to the shippers in October of 1960. It was finished in black over 'Special Red' leather, with the Special Red extending to the carpets and headcloth. The rubber mats were white. The car was built to United States specification and received electric windows, power steering, fog lamps, and winter equipment including cold weather shields over the door locks and a winter thermostat.

The car's first recorded owner was Oliver D. Appleton, a partner at Cyrus J. Lawrence & Sons, investment bankers, in Mount Kisco, New York. It is believed that the car spent much of its life in New York. During the 1980s, it is believed to have been slightly modified and restored by Niko-Michael Coachworks, with the P100 headlights and continental kit installed at this time along with the two-tone black and burgundy color scheme added both inside and out.

The car entered the care of its current owner in 2008 and has been on static display since.
