For Sale: Elton John's Psychedelic Rolls Royce Silver Cloud III

For Sale: Elton John's Psychedelic Rolls Royce Silver Cloud III

Posted Feb 10th 2012 

We haven't seen such a garish customization of classic vintage metal since Von Dutch painted white curlicues all over a root-beer coloured 300SL gullwing.

This 1964 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud III once belonged to Sir Elton John (we're betting it was during his Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds period). Aside from the -ahem- custom paint, this Roller also boasts a fully modified drivetrain - so cast aside any lingering doubts about the reliability of ancient Lucas electronics. Under that long snout is a 454 Chevy big block mated to a GM slushbox, the brakes have been swapped for modern GM stoppers and the air actually works.

Listed on Ebay Motors this week, the auction was ended early when the bidding barely topped $10,000.
No word on what the reserve price was, but it's not the first time this one-of-a-kind Roller has been on the block – it was offered up a few years ago by a Greenville TN. couple for $100,000.

We think this car is just the ticket for the discerning buyer wishing to stand out at the next concours...
