From back when people would actually go to the trouble of custom ordering their Rolls Royce the excat way they wantecd it. If you wanted a 6,000+ lb 2-place convertible, Rolls Royce would make it happen for you. Frankly, I don't know if that's even possible anymore with BMW at the helm. I don't know for sure if this is real or a model, but it's a great example of what would have been possible in the late 50's. I'm going to call it REAL.

I say it's real.

 

I know what a real RR looks like, as I'm driven to golf every second week in one by one of my mates.

The other week I drive him in my Subaru.

I think I have the better bargain here.

Well, it's pretty obviously a Rolls Royce from the mid to late 1950's through sometime in the early to mid 1960's That would narrow the model down to, I believe, a Silver Wraith, Silver Dawn, or a Phantom IV chassis. The bodywork isn't from the factory catalog as far as I know, but there were still several old-time coachbuilders doing fine custom work such as this in that timeframe, as well as several relative newcomers such as Pinin Farina. A little online research goes a long way, and is a lot of fun besides. That's a big part of the reason I like these games Harry does so much - Even if I don't find what it is I'm looking for, I almost always learn SOMETHING!

In that time frame it would most likely be a Silver Cloud I, II or III.
