Car Details

This might be the most glamourous Rolls Royce to grace the Earth. It has been the center of Hollywood fashion and the elite for decades. It's long nose, sweeping fenders and massive grill undoubtedly make a statement wherever it is seen, and it has been seen all over at the most exclusive locations in Hollywood. Imagine this car in front of a Beverly Hills mansion, but not any mansion, one owned by one of the most successful film producers Hollywood has ever seen, Emmy winning billionaire Aaron Spelling. Aaron Spelling has 232 credits under his name from 1956 through 2006. His fifty year career gave us some of the most popular TV shows such as Beverly Hills 90210, Charlies Angles, The Love Boat, Fantasy Island and many more. Dynasty, produced by Spelling, it was the show that ruled television during the 1980s. Centered around the Carringtons, a wealthy family from Colorado. The show starred the biggest stars of the era, Linda Evans, Joan Collins, Heather Locklear and numerous more. It displayed the lavish life of the super wealthy in an era of excess. Much of the shows success was credited to costume designer Nolan Miller who created all the fashion for the show. In appreciation of his success Aaron Spelling gifted Nolan his prized 1965 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud. The stately automobile is one of about 200 produced in 1965 and it quickly became a symbol for Miller and the Hollywood glamour he helped mold and shape. Miller often chauffeured his celebrity friends and colleagues in his prized dream car. Passengers included Spelling, Barbara Stanwyck, Sophia Loren, Joan Collins, Linda Evans, Lana Turner, and Joan Crawford -- many of whom he drove to various awards ceremonies and red carpet events. In 1999, the QVC program Extreme Shopping Hollywood offered a $15,000 Dynasty package that included a trip to L.A., clothes and jewelry designed by Miller, consultation with him, and -- rounding off a full Nolan Miller experience quite nicely -- car service in the form of his prized Rolls. Nolan owned the car from the early 1980s until 2010. The car is in outstanding condition and has only 62k miles on it. It has been on display in our museum since 2011 as a center piece to our Cars of the Rich and Famous collection. We can't think of a car with more star power than this Rolls. However it is time to rotate our collection and bring new exhibits in allowing the next caretaker to enjoy this historic piece of Hollywood and automobile history. HISTORY OF THE ROLLS-ROYCE SILVER CLOUD III: Est. 216 bhp 6,230 cc aluminum V-8 engine, twin SU carburetors, four-speed automatic transmission, independent front suspension with upper and lower A-arms with coil springs and hydraulic shock absorbers, live rear axle with semi-elliptic leaf springs and hydraulic shock absorbers, and four-wheel servo-assisted hydraulic drum brakes. Wheelbase: 123? – From the final year of Silver Cloud production – Extensively restored and with desirable air conditioning. Introduced in 1955, the Silver Cloud progressed through continuous development to the Silver Cloud II in 1959 and then finally Silver Cloud III. Introduced toward the end of 1962, the Silver Cloud III heralded mainly cosmetic changes, with the most notable being a new four-headlamp arrangement. Mechanically, it was claimed that the 6.2-liter alloy V-8 now produced eight percent more power than before, resulting in an output increase to almost 220 bhp. The Silver Cloud III sold quite well, with 2,376 examples produced from late 1962 until October 1965, when the Silver Shadow debuted.
