1956 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud

Hello. I am offering my 1956 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud I up for sale. It is Right Hand drive (original) and complete. The car has been in California since the early 1970s, always in the Palm Springs / Palm desert area. It starts, runs and drives well.
I started re-doing it a couple of years ago. The engine had a lot of work done, so it is running nice and smooth. All new belts and hoses flown in from England, no leaks. New paint. Recent new leather upholstery.
Still needs work on the brakes (hydraulic system on the brakes does not work, so stepping on the brake pedal slows the car down, but does not brake well). The wood on the dashboard and windows needs to be refinished. The steering wheel is cracked on the surface in many places, even though the steel underneath is still good. There is some rust underneath, but from what I can see nothing too serious. But I am also not an expert on this. I already have a box with all new rubber for the car, window seals, door weather stripping, rubber under the lights, door handles, etc.. This box is included.
Odometer reads 7,000 miles, but that is 107,000 miles.
At this time I am running out of patience, time and money to carry the project any further.
The car has been parked in storage in Cathedral City / Palm Desert for the last couple of months. It has current tags and insurance, as I used to drive it around once in a while (before the brakes went bad). The car can be shown at that location with prior appointment.
In case it is sold, it has to be towed because of the brakes.
Please contact me with questions.
