In the classic age of luxury motoring, you bought a chassis and then sent it to a coachbuilder. These master craftspeople would build your car to order, any almost anything was possible. Back in the late ’50s, the big players were H.J. Mulliner, Park Ward, Jensen, and Tickford just to name a few. They became famous for elegant builds that were sold to royalty and business magnates around the world.
However, the truly talented builders only accepted a few commissions a year. Such was the case with James Young. Based in London, they only built two examples of the 1959 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud, and this one is for sale. Starting with a hand-built aluminum body, it was loaded with St. James red leather, burled walnut, power steering, windows, and Air Conditioning. Because it was left-hand drive, this is a truly unique masterpiece. It was built to U.S. specs because it was ordered by Hollywood Producer William Goetz, the founder of 20th Century Fox.
Knowing the significance of this car, each owner has fully documented history of awards and a concours-quality restoration. Invited to Pebble Beach in 2004 and 2015, it won 3rd place.
