In the classic age of the luxury automobile, you bought a chassis and then sent it to a coachbuilder. These master craftsmen built your car to order, almost anything was possible. In the late 1950s the big players were HJ Mulliner, Park Ward, Jensen and Tickford to name a few. They became famous for their elegant constructions which were sold to royalty and business tycoons around the world.
However, the really talented builders only accepted a few orders a year. This was the case with James Young. Based in London, they have only built two examples of the 1959 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud, and this one is for sale. Starting from a handcrafted aluminum body, it was loaded with red St. James leather, burl walnut, power steering, windows and air conditioning. Because it was left-hand drive, it’s a truly unique masterpiece. It was built to American specifications as it was commissioned by Hollywood producer William Goetz, the founder of 20th Century Fox.
