Known History

The Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud was the core model of the Rolls-Royce Motor Cars range from April 1955 until March 1966. It replaced the Silver Dawn and was, in turn, replaced by the Silver Shadow. The J. P. Blatchley design was a major change from the pre-war models and the highly derivative Silver Dawn. As part of a range rationalisation, the Bentley S1 is also very similar apart from, of course, its radiator grill. The chassis was a simple steel box section, welded together and very rigid. Construction retained the traditional split between chassis and body which facilitated the provision of special bodied versions although, in practice, the overwhelming majority of cars were delivered with the standard steel body shell, produced by Pressed Steel, and employing light weight aluminium based alloy for the doors, bonnet and boot lid. The engine was a 155hp six-cylinder unit with inlet over exhaust valves; twin SU carburettors were added in September 1957 and standard was a four-speed, automatic transmission.

Repatriated to the UK in 1997, this lefthand drive Rolls-Royce has had extensive work carried out on her, including a H J Mulliner style conversion carried out by Wildae Restorations Ltd in Devon. Manufactured on 12th May 1959 this Silver Cloud is finished in metallic grey with contrasting maroon leather trim and hood. The dashboard, door trims and picnic tables are finished in highly figured burr walnut and features power steering and air conditioning, this really is a magnificent looking vehicle. An extensive history file comes with the car confirming how meticulous he is and the significant level of investment. Since the restoration chassis LNSH144 has taken part in rallies across America and Canada, is there a better way to tour these vast countries than in a Rolls-Royce convertible. This Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud I has to be the most sorted adaptation we have ever had the pleasure of owning. An effortless, extremely comfortable way to travel whether that is to the local shops or to the Cote d'Azur.
