1993 ROLLS-ROYCE CORNICHE IV CONVERTIBLE

Arguably the ultimate 1970s and 1980s status symbol of wealth and success, the Rolls-Royce Corniche was a car sought after by many but one only the fortunate few could afford. Designed and intended to be enjoyed by their lucky owners in warm-weather climates, each Corniche took four months to be hand built, with two weeks spent on the convertible top alone. With a list price of over $200,000, each car utilized only the finest materials Britain had to offer, including Wilton wool carpeting, Connolly leather, and carefully selected burl walnut veneer. First introduced in 1971, the Corniche remained in production for nearly 25 years and over this time, these cars were periodically updated to keep them both modern and relevant. The Corniche II, the model’s first major revision, was introduced in 1977 and included new rack-and-pinion steering, alloy and rubber bumpers which replaced the earlier chrome bumpers, along with an oil cooler, aluminum radiator, and bi-level air conditioning system.

The spectacular 1993 Rolls-Royce Corniche IV Convertible featured here is finished in the one of one color combination of Artic White over a white Connolly leather interior with maroon piping, Wilton wool carpeting and magnificent veneered burr walnut throughout with a white everflex power folding convertible top. This particular example was sold new in September 1993 by Max of Switzerland (the authorized Rolls-Royce dealer in Scottsdale, Arizona) and has been meticulously maintained since new. Today the Corniche IV presents in spectacular condition while only just over 21,000 miles have accrued on the odometer since leaving the factory. Recently in November 2019 an extensive $11,000 service was performed by a respected exotic car specialist in Palm Springs, California ensuring that this classic Rolls-Royce performs as well as it presents. As one would expect with such a low mileage and meticulously maintained example, an extensive amount of documentation accompanies the Corniche IV today including the original books, business card from the selling dealer, original tools, recent service invoices, the original window sticker and more! This is simply the best example to be found on the market today and we are sure that this documented, low mileage and recently serviced limited production motorcar will surely bring many years of enjoyment to its future caretaker. We are especially proud to offer this incredible 1993 Rolls-Royce Corniche IV Convertible to the most astute collector, investor or enthusiast who understands and appreciates the combination of luxury and craftsmanship that can only be found in these classic Rolls-Royces. For all of you who are not familiar, Rolls-Royce no longer exists as it has for the past hundred years; it is now owned by BMW and models are being mass-produced. The days of cars being hand crafted by artisans in Crewe are now just a fond memory. This particular car was built at a time when Rolls-Royce was truly building the world’s finest motorcars with the care and craftsmanship evident in every detail. Classic cars have proven to be among the most resilient and rewarding investments in recent years with the Historic Automobile Group Index (HAGI) jumping 39% in 2013, 16% in 2014 and 17% in 2015 while posting gains of 467% over the last 10 years.

History of the Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith

The first large Rolls-Royce model produced after WWII, the Silver Wraith was introduced in 1946 and was only available as a bare chassis from the factory, allowing the purchaser to choose from one of several notable coachbuilders including Park Ward Ltd, H.J. Mulliner, James Young and Hooper & Co. Standard chassis length was a generous 127” wheelbase and the model was initially powered by a new F-head design 4.3 litre inline-6 cylinder engine. The Silver Wraith’s notion as the last mass-produced model available exclusively through a coachbuilder has garnished some to call the model the last true Rolls-Royce! Numerous body arrangements were available, suiting very various types of elite clientele; however the Touring Limousine by Hooper & Co, proved to be one of the most desired variants. Internally known as design 8034, only 69 examples were produced, each with elegant aluminum coachwork to save space. Some models featured a power division window and operable sunroof allowing for fresh air motoring for the chauffer and the passenger(s). Today the Silver Wraith remains one of great classic Rolls-Royce designs; its pre-war appearance with post-war innovation has made the model one of the most desirable to collectors today.

The 1964 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud III featured here presents in complete factory specification largely wearing its original Shell Grey finish and Blue Connolly leather interior that it received over 50 years ago. This particular example arrived at the Liverpool port in January 1964 and was shipped to New York where it was delivered to its first owner, Luella Day Jeffery, on February 20, 1964. The accompanying build documents verify that the car was built to U.S. specification yet did not receive the “Silver Cloud III” script on the trunk lid due to the build card reading “insignia on boot door not required.” Jeffrey kept the Rolls-Royce in her possession until 1969, and the vehicle acquired less than 3,000 miles during this period. A New York couple possessed this Silver Cloud III for the next 45 years only adding 1,500 miles to the odometer under their ownership.

In 2014 it was acquired by a Pebble Beach Concours winning Rolls-Royce specialist who recommissioned the motorcar with a full mechanical service in addition to a new set of wheels and tires. In 2017, this Silver Cloud III was shown publicly for the first time at the Rolls-Royce National Meet. This virtually unknown Silver Cloud III left a lasting impression on Rolls-Royce enthusiasts; judges were quick to bestow it with the Post-War Preservation Award (an honor that fits this incredibly original example). The original Dunlop Nylon whitewall tires are still mounted to the original steel wheels and are included with the car. However, another set of tires and wheels reside on the car for safety purposes. Additionally, this Silver Cloud III is accompanied by its original owner’s manual, tools, jack, build document copies and the original factory supplied quart of lacquer touch up paint that to this day has never been opened! In March 2019 it received a meticulous cosmetic refreshing and is now ready for future preservation class concours events.

HISTORY OF THE ROLLS-ROYCE SILVER CLOUD III
Considered the pinnacle of the Silver Cloud series, the Silver Cloud III was unveiled in Paris during fall 1962. The most prominent changes were the inclusion of a four headlamp layout. Additionally, the radiator grill was shortened and the bonnet was given a slightly increased slope. An improved interior contributed to the 220lb loss of weight over the Silver Cloud II. The Crewe engineers were able to increase the power to weight ratio by 7% due to an increase in both the compression ratio and the size of the carburetors. The Silver Cloud III was the last Rolls-Royce model produced using body-on-frame construction, and the last example was finished by hand at the Crewe factory in 1966. Only 2,044 Silver Cloud III’s were built during the short three year production run, which was the lowest of all the Silver Cloud Series. The quality and craftsmanship of the Silver Cloud helps to elevate it from every other car ever built and showed the world how good Rolls-Royce was at producing an artistic masterpiece.

*Please note that this 1964 Rolls-Royce chassis was first registered in 1965 and is titled respectively as a 1965 model.*

By the late 1970’s, this Rolls-Royce was in the hands of a Southern California owner. It was previously subjected to a sympathetic restoration that included a high quality respray in the original factory colors, and it presents wonderfully today with only 33,325 miles on the odometer.  The accompanying documentation includes the original tool kit and owner’s handbook in addition to some build document copies confirming that the numbers matching 6.2 liter V8 engine is still in place. With excellent ownership provenance and low mileage, this Silver Cloud III is one of the best examples that can be found on the market today.

The Crewe engineers were able to increase the power to weight ratio by 7% due to an increase in both the compression ratio and the size of the carburetors. The Silver Cloud III was the last Rolls-Royce model produced using body-on-frame construction, and the last example was finished by hand at the Crewe factory in 1966. Only 2,044 Silver Cloud III’s were built during the short three year production run, which was the lowest of all the Silver Cloud Series. The quality and craftsmanship of the Silver Cloud helps to elevate it from every other car ever built and showed the world how good Rolls-Royce was at producing an artistic masterpiece.

This 1928 Rolls-Royce Phantom I Springfield St. Martin Brewster Town Car was purchased new by King C Gillette, inventor of the Gillette Razor and founder of the Gillette Safety Razor Company. It remained under Gillette family ownership until 1964 when it was purchased by the Shochitt family of New York with approximately 13,000 miles at that time. Under the Shochitt family ownership this car truly became a celebrity in its own right, appearing in numerous movies including The April Fools with Jack Lemmon, The Cotton Club, Putney Swope and numerous television commercials. It also won first in its class at the 1965 Madison Square Garden Autorama. It remains in incredibly original condition with its original Wilton Wool carpets, Mahogonhy inlays, and an assortment of tools, factory accessories, and spare wheel hubs that are truly impressive. A light patina naturally associated with a car of this age is evident though it has just undergone an extensive $25K mechanical service which included a new clutch, brakes, fuel tank system and Bijur lubrication system freshening. There are few Rolls-Royces in existence that can claim such provenance, documented history, and state of preservation such as this one. It is truly one of the most famous and most photographed of all time, and it is with great pleasure that we offer it. Classic cars have proven to be among the most resilient and rewarding investments in recent years with the Historic Automobile Group Index (HAGI) jumping 39% in 2013, 16% in 2014 and 17% in 2015 while posting gains of 467% over the last 10 years.

HISTORY OF THE ROLLS-ROYCE PHANTOM V
Rolls-Royce introduced the Phantom V in 1959. This ultra-exclusive model was based mechanically on the Silver-Cloud II with the 6.2-Litre V8 engine providing adequate power for city and country driving. Phantom V bodies were exclusively coach-built with H.J. Mulliner, Park Ward, and James Young providing a select number of tailored body styles to suit the likes of her majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the Shah of Iran and even legendary musician John Lennon. Only 516 Phantom V chassis were manufactured by Rolls-Royce up to 1968; 101 examples received the Touring Limousine design by James Young Coachwork and 48 were built with left-hand drive. With its exclusive styling and luxury, the James Young Touring Limousine Phantom V is widely regarded as one of the best Rolls-Royce designs and examples are highly regarded among collectors today.
