For sale at Rancho Santa Fe Motors in California is one of the finest examples of a post-war automobile ever created. This 1961 Rolls-Royce Sedanca de Ville is as pristine and complete as they come and even won the “Best in Class” award at this year’s Pebble Beach event.

This Rolls-Royce was purchased by Elsie Tritton, who was very tedious when she had coachbuilder James Young outfit the car. According to the car’s listing, Titton said, “there would be no occasional seats, as she wanted to see their finest burl walnut from the division window to the floor.” She ended up ordering burl wood cabinets so the interior would be a “sea of beautiful burl wood.”

Other amenities inside this Rolls-Royce include the leather mirror, cigarette case, burl brush and notebook with pen. She also had the cabinets supplied with crystal decanters, glasses and smoking accessories.

When Tritton passed in 1983, the car was sold to J. Seward Johnson, Chairman of the Johnson and Johnson company.

Now, Rancho Santa Fe Motors is offering this fine example of a post-war Rolls-Royce for $1,200,000. With this car comes an extensive leather-bound history book with rare photos from when the car was new in England, proof of ownership and more. Also included are the tools, such as the jack and tire pump, as well as the owner manuals and the very rare and original James Young literature.
