Treat Yourself: ’68 Rolls-Royce H.J. Mulliner Park Ward Coupe
Nothing says that you have good taste like an understated Rolls-Royce Coupe. These are hand-built cars typically custom ordered by the original owner. Today’s featured Coupe is the predecessor to the Corniche Coupe and Convertible. It is a beautiful car that carries its 4,700 pound weight well. The craftmanship is evident throughout and like any Rolls, the interior is special. The Coupe has seating for 4 and all 4 are surrounded by elegant wood, leather, lambswool, classic gauges, knobs and a smattering of chrome. The seats are fully adjustable all around and appear to be in decent, original condition. The Coupe featured a triple hydraulic brake system and automatic height control. Needless to say, they were expensive and although we do not know the original price, we can’t imagine there were many cars more valuable back in ’68. Today, they are a relative bargain considering the build quality. And like any expensive car from days gone by, you need to consider only the best or you will be buried in repair bills that you could not imagine. This is one you should consider. It is an original California car with only 70,000 miles. Perhaps the owners spent half the year in Monaco or Palm Beach leaving this one to rest in Beverly Hills or Santa Barbara. We are confident the sellers, California Classix, have a lot of information about where it came from. The asking price is $39,900 and that puts it smack in the #2 rating from Hagerty Valuation Guide.
