1964 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud III Drophead Coupe
H. J. Mulliner & Co. (formed 1897) was a well-known British coach-builder operating from Bedford Park, Chiswick, West London. Their history goes back to the 1760’s when they first started hiring out horse drawn carriages. The Mulliner brand was sold to Rolls Royce in 1959. “Mulliner” today is now the personal commissioning department for Bentley Motor Cars. The Silver Cloud IIIs arrived in 1963 with many improvements over the first two previous generations. A total of 2,044 SCIIIs were produced between 1963-1966 with Mulliner only producing 25 of these Drophead Coupes.
This particular Silver Cloud III four door sedan (Serial # SFU197) was ordered in 1964 and built for Sir C.J. Graham of North Ireland. Prince Jefi, the brother of the Sultan of Brunei who owns the largest collection of cars in the world, commissioned Rolls Royce to build one last Silver Cloud III Mulliner Drophead Coupe in the late 1990’s. The car has only been driven a total of less than 4,000 miles since the car was originally delivered. The gap between when the original 25 Drophead Coupes were made in the sixties and when this car was produced in the nineties will only add to the rarity and long term blue chip investment potential. Excellent opportunity to own one extremely rare Rolls Royce.
