1987 Rolls-Royce Corniche II Convertible for sale at Daniel Schmitt & Co.

1987 ROLLS-ROYCE CORNICHE II 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.

Presented here is perhaps one of the finest 1987 Rolls-Royce Corniche II Convertibles in existence. It is finished in the stunning factory color combination of Magnolia over a matching Connolly leather interior and power folding convertible top. This particular example was sold new in the spring of 1987 through Terry York Motor Cars Ltd in Encino, California to a meticulous owner who kept the Corniche in pristine condition until 2019. It presents as new with only 16,277 miles on the odometer. Accompanying service records show that Rolls-Royce of Beverly Hills exclusively serviced this Corniche from 2004 onward and completed a $5,600 service in 2016. Additional documentation includes the original books, copy of the original warranty certificate, original temporary registration, jack, factory tools and more! 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. Simply put, this is one of the best examples we have brought to the market in years and it will certainly bring many years of enjoyment to its future caretaker. 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 Silver Cloud II

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. This is the most original and lowest mileage Silver Cloud III we have ever had the pleasure of offering.

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.*

This Silver Cloud III was purchased new by famed cartoonist Allen Saunders. Saunders is best known for his work on the “Mary Worth” and “Steve Roper” comic strips and was the originator of the phrase “life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.” The phrase first appeared in a 1957 issue of Readers Digest and was later popularized in the John Lennon song “Beautiful Boy (Darling Boy).”

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 33,221 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.

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.

 

Classic 1959 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud I Drophead Coupe by H.J. Mulliner for sale at Daniel Schmitt & Co.

1959 ROLLS-ROYCE SILVER CLOUD I DROPHEAD COUPE BY H.J. MULLINER

The Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud was introduced in 1955. Designed by J.P. Blatchley, the Silver Cloud was the first model from Rolls-Royce to showcase a post-war appearance. The new model featured an improved chassis of rigid box sectioning and a longer wheelbase, giving custom coachbuilders more creativity and customers a larger and more lavish interior. Rolls-Royce’s legendary F-head engine was further refined when it was given twin SU Carburettors for fuel induction in 1957. This refinement would be the pinnacle of the Rolls-Royce straight-6 with 4.9 litres of displacement and 180hp. While the standard 4-door Sedan was well received by the public, custom coachwork was still available from some of the finest English craftsmen including James Young and H.J. Mulliner. The skill of the staff of H.J. Mulliner was nothing short of legendary; so much that their incredible design number 7504 successfully transformed the Silver Cloud Sedan into a stylish Drophead Coupe. Only 13 Silver Cloud I chassis would receive the Drophead Coupe coachwork of H.J. Mulliner, of which only 10 were prepared for the U.S. Market in left hand drive configuration. The U.S. spec cars featured an increased compression ratio of 8:1 for the performance-minded American clientele.

Silver Cloud chassis LSMH195 was delivered to its first owner, Broadway producer Lawrence Carr, in June of 1959. Mr. Carr was very discerning which is noted by the Rolls-Royce build documents that list several pieces of special equipment including door lock weather shields. Additional special features include a fuel pump testing switch (to control fuel flow through one or more fuel pumps) and an incredible rare factory tachometer; a feature seldom seen on any Cloud Series Rolls-Royce. After his acquisition, Carr was frequently seen parading the Drophead Coupe around the East Hamptons. Society columnist Dorothy Kilgallen reported that Carr was spotted on the roadways in the Rolls-Royce with Broadway actress Kathy Carlyle. LSMH195 was then passed to enthusiast Robert Frielich, who cared for the car for several decades and eventually sold the car to a Mr. Kovach of Michigan. Mr. Kovach commissioned the Pebble Beach winning specialists Vantage Motorworks to perform a no-expense-spared restoration on LSMH195. Numerous new old stock (N.O.S.) components were sourced and nearly $340,000 was spent during the entire process. Since the restoration was completed, this Silver Cloud Drophead Coupe has not been shown publicly and would certainly make an excellent presentation at several major Concours d’Elegance events.

This 1959 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud I Drophead Coupe by H. J. Mulliner is finished in stunning Sand Acrylic with a Regal Red pinstripe over a gorgeous Tan Connolly leather interior and is quite possibly the best example in existence. It is accompanied by its original owner’s manual, tool kit, nearly $340,000 in restoration receipts and more.

HISTORY OF THE ROLLS-ROYCE PHANTOM II
The Rolls-Royce Phantom II was introduced as the successor to the Phantom I in 1929 and was one of the last Rolls-Royce motorcars developed under the tenure of Sir Henry Royce. The 7.7 litre inline-6 cylinder engine from the Phantom I was further refined with a cross flow cylinder head and the chassis featured semi-elliptical leaf springs in the rear which allowed the Rolls-Royce engineers to lower the stance of the car, thus improving handling at higher speeds. The Phantom II chassis continued to use the servo assisted brakes from the Phantom I in addition to the central chassis lubrication system that was standard on the Springfield assembled Phantom I. These improvements helped to make the Phantom II one of the best driving motorcars of the era and the Phantom II is still considered by many to be the pinnacle pre-war Rolls-Royce. Only an approximate 1,402 Phantom II chassis were built until 1936, and only 125 were delivered to the United States with left-hand drive arrangement. While many American Rolls-Royce clients opted for coachwork that was finished in England, some discerning clients chose to enlist an American coachbuilder to finish their Phantom II in a way that suited their individual needs.

By the early 1960s, the Silver Cloud series was becoming dated, even for a tradition-bound manufacturer like Rolls-Royce, but the introduction of the Silver Shadow in 1965 erased any doubt that the firm was committed to dramatic change.

The overall effect was stunning. Vestiges of separate fenders were gone, and the cars sat lower. This concession to New World design, however, gave up nothing in elegance. A formal roof line was retained, as well as the hallmark radiator grille topped with the Spirit of Ecstasy mascot. Beneath the modern yet elegant façade lay thoroughly up-to-date technology: unitary construction, independent rear suspension, automatic chassis leveling and four-wheel disc brakes. The engine was increased in displacement from 6,230 to 6,750cc in 1969 to overcome power losses attributed to emission controls; the same year a long-wheelbase version was introduced.

The 1973 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow LWB featured here is finished in gorgeous dark Scots Pine Metallic with an impeccably kept original beige leather interior surrounded by magnificent walnut woodwork throughout. This incredible motorcar is among one of the finest examples we have seen in decades.

1963 ROLLS-ROYCE SILVER CLOUD III SALOON

Considered the pinnacle of the Silver Cloud series, the Silver Cloud III was unveiled during the fall of 1962 in Paris. The obvious changes were external with the inclusion of a four headlamp layout being the most prominent. In addition, the radiator grill was shortened and as a result the bonnet was given a slightly increased slope. An improved interior was a contributing factor in a 220lb loss of curb weight over the Silver Cloud II, however the increase of power to weight ratio was further enhanced by the Crewe engineers who gave the 6.2 litre V8 a 7% increase in power by raising the compression ratio and increasing the size of the carburetors. The Silver Cloud III was the last Rolls-Royce to be built using body-on-frame construction, with the last example being produced in 1966. Only 2,044 Silver Cloud III’s were built in its short three years of production, the lowest of all the Silver Cloud Series. The quality and craftsmanship of the Silver Cloud helps to elevate it from practically every other car ever built and showed the world how good Rolls-Royce was at producing an artistic masterpiece.

The 1963 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud III Saloon featured here is finished in stunning Astral Blue over Silver with a beautiful new dark blue leather interior. This magnificent motorcar is among one of the finest examples available on the market today.
