1963 ROLLS-ROYCE SILVER CLOUD III JAMES YOUNG SCT100 BABY PHANTOM #LCAL17
The second of only 7 left drives built to this configuration from 1963-1965, only two of which were supplied with individual front seating rather than divider partitions.
The very comprehensive copies of the factory & coachbuilder records show William Harrah as the first owner. Mr. Harrah was a pioneer automobile enthusiast who established a fantastic 3,000+ car museum at his hotel & casino facility in Reno, Nevada. He also owned Modern Classic Motors, the Rolls-Royce & Ferrari distributorship for that area of the US.
LCAL17 was delivered to Mr. Harrah on 7 November, 1962 finished in two shades of Grey with Blue-Grey Cord broadcloth (rather than leather) interior. The effectiveness of the original limousine specification air conditioning & engine cooling systems have since been dramatically increased by ourselves utilizing more modern technology. The Blaupunkt AM-FM radio & glovebox door mounted altimeter shown were part of the original specification.
It was part of Mr. Harrahs legendary stable of Rolls-Royces until its resale a few years later to a well-known celebrity entertainer & personal friend of his (name upon request) who reportedly admired the color layout used for 5LVF129, a 6,500+ mile 1967 James Young PV16 Formal Limousine displayed in the museum. This car was refinished to his order in the same Mercer Brown TN927 lacquer with its present day VM859 Chestnut Connolly hides. The Walnut Burl veneers since refinished by ourselves compliment the interior beautifully.
This never damaged specimen remained in his collection until late 2013 when it was purchased through an agent by ourselves & supplied to its third careful owner after we carefully prepared it to show standards per the request of that gentleman. The odometer reading at that time was 96,369.
Recently traded back to us against a James Young PV23 Touring Limousine, it has traveled only 785 miles since. The dated Mercer Brown exterior has been freshly re-lacquered in Antelope over Garnet, an especially elegant color layout of the era. This spectacular performer is by far the finest (& perhaps the only) left drive SCT100 available anywhere in the world.
