ROLLS ROYCE SILVER CLOUD III H. J. MULLINER CONVERTIBLE - LSCX447 - 74,065 Km, for sale in North Miami, Florida, price on application.
One of 26 left drives built, this specimen was delivered to Mrs. Dan-Axel Brostrom of Stockholm, Sweden on March 2, 1963 with an interesting host of special options including removable headrest to the right front seat, special veneers to match those in an S3 Flying Spur (BC16LXA), compartment to rear center armrest with hinged lid, dashboard mounted tachometer to replace the left side cubby box and more. Mr. Brostrom was the scion of the Brostrom Shipbuilding Family and from 1961-1965 was married to the actress Anabelle Lee.
For a few years the car became the property of a well known Hollywood producer and automobile enthusiast who resold it to a noted Beverly Hills designer in 1970 according to a loan document in its files dated May 11, 1970. It was acquired from that lady by ourselves through an agent in January 1987 and supplied to a Miami, Florida based economics professor one month later.
That gentleman later sold it through a New York collectible car dealer to the same Hollywood film producer (his second ownership of the automobile) who in 1998 allowed us to acquire it as part of an important group of Rolls-Royce and Bentleys being assembled for an enthusiastic gentlemen who later entrusted it to a reliable museum facility which held it from 2002 until we reacquired it in November 2009. It has been part of an important local collection since December 2010 and is in virtually the same Concours condition today.
The Dusk Grey lacquer finish is a fine compliment to the fresh Scarlet Connolly hide interior, both colors as originally supplied. The interior wood veneers have been refinished to show quality for the first time since 1963. The mechanical aspects of this never damaged, very strong performer have been freshly upgraded and refined as necessary to provide years of reliable enjoyment to it's seventh owner in over 46 years. As part of the process the underside, engine, engine bay and wiring were brought to Concours standards as well.
Unlike some European delivered examples, it is equipped with original equipment air conditioning and power window lifts. Complete tools and correct original owner's handbook complete the package.
The present odometer reading is 74,065 kilometers (approximately 46,000 miles) and the known history, lack of wear to key indicators and what older service exists tend to confirm it. We believe this is the finest of necessarily few real left drives available anywhere.
