Technical specifications, photos and description:
Chassis number LCC. 45 is one of the very rare. desirable LWB James Young aluminum bodied Rolls Royce Silver Cloud's. The chassis was delivered to James Young Coachbuilders on the 22nd August 1961 and the car was delivered by Jack Barclay Ltd to its first owner. Heritable & General Investment Bank Ltd. London on 9th March 1962. also of Berkeley Square. W1. The Rolls Royce was supplied in Tudor Grey with Beige leather. power assisted steering and division.
This stunning SCT 100 Rolls Royce covered very little mileage in and around London in its first thirteen years. changing hands for the first time in July 1975. We have an MOT certificate from 1975 to confirm the mileage was just 22. 85. The second owner in Surrey didn't keep the car long and in September 1975 Jack Barclay Ltd sold the Rolls Royce to its third owner in Ypsilanti. Michigan. USA. We have records to confirm the Rolls Royce won a first in class at a Rolls Royce event in Dearborn. Michigan in 1977. By 1977 the Rolls Royce had covered 24000 miles.
The Rolls Royce returned to the UK in 1988 having being kept in lovely. original condition as expected when participating in club events. We know that since been back in the UK. the Rolls Royce has had relatively little use and has come to us with a recorded mileage of 57. 00. The last owner bought the car over two years ago and informed us that the car had not been used for several years prior to his purchase. In early 2011 we are told over £5000 was spent with a Rolls Royce specialist on mechanical re-commissioning work. we have invoices for almost £3000 of this work. This programme of work included new rear brake linings. rebuilt master cylinder. rebuilt wheel cylinders. new handbrake linkage bushes. two new brake drums and the servo was removed. cleaned. checked and the whole braking system bled. The Rolls Royce was also treated to new tyres at this point and we have been informed by the previous owner that in the region of £10. 00 was spent on a full external re-paint.
On the road OSU 116 is fabulous with a superb ride and excellent brakes. The engine performs faultlessly and runs beautifully holding very good oil pressure. We have taken the car on an extensive road test and can report no known faults or overheating. The gears change up and down smoothly. the performance is impressive and the car offers a wonderful driving experience.
A new MOT. service and function check are included in this sale. Nationwide delivery is available.
