In 1924, silent movie star Harold Lloyd of Beverly Hills bought this car new from a Los Angeles dealer. It remained in his estate until his death in 1974. In 1975 it was auctioned off to its second owner, who kept the car until 2014. The documented mileage is 18,886 and the car is totally original with the exception of the leather in the front compartment, which was replaced by Lloyd after it was damaged by a water leak in his garage roof. The mechanics reflect the vehicle's low mileage and superb condition. The car comes with factory records and the California title showing the Harold Lloyd estate as owner.
During Lloyd's ownership the car was featured in the 1954 Oscar winning film Sabrina starring Audrey Hepburn, Humphrey Bogart, William Holden, and directed by Billy Wilder.
In the late 1960s and early 1970s, Charles Crail visited the Lloyd estate and took photos of the cars in the garage. We have included some of these photos in our gallery. Mr. Lloyd owned two Rolls-Royces which have remained together for the past 90 Years. Mr. Crail bought both and recently sold the Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost Pall Mall with 51k original miles, to a European collector.
This is a fabulous opportunity to own a two owner Los Angeles, California car that may be the finest original example of an early Rolls-Royce Riviera Silver Ghost with the lowest documented miles and its very own Hollywood history!
