The Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud and Bentley ‘S’ series in 1955 was surely one of the main reasons behind the demise of most of the few remaining coachbuilders still producing bodies for Rolls-Royce and Bentley chassis. The Silver Cloud with a beautifully proportioned body, was a car which looked so ‘right’ that there was little incentive for customers to order bespoke coachwork, and therefore soon afterwards both Freestone & Webb and Hooper ceased coachbuilding. The Silver Cloud II was introduced in 1959 replacing the Silver Cloud I. Little changed externally but it featured the 6.2 litre V8 engine. Performance was greatly improved and the top speed was now raised to 114mph. The main improvements though were in acceleration and torque. Power steering became standard and electrically operated windows were now available as an option.
This example presented in good order throughout has been used regularly in recent times. The Silver Cloud has featured as part of a fleet of chauffeur driven cars for some years and has been maintained where necessary. Purchased by our vendor as part of a significant private collection, this example has benefitted from continual maintenance and when not in use stored inside in a professional ventilated Carcoon. The condition of the car is described as very good indeed, the silver over Tudor Grey paintwork and chrome show little signs of age, the red leather interior is also in good condition. The odometer reads 87,000 miles and we are informed this is a fully matching numbers UK example supplied new on 2nd November 1960. Representing a great investment opportunity, this will also give a collector or enthusiast many years of enjoyment and viewing is recommended.]]
