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/hood and boot lid. The engine was a
155hp six-cylinder unit with inlet over exhaust valves;
twin SU carburettors were added in September 1957 with
standard was a four-speed automatic transmission.

This intriguing example has been well used throughout its
lifetime. Not only does the recorded mileage indicate this but the
overall condition point to many matrimonial outings and much time
spent keeping this gentle giant on the road. The exterior is in
largely poor condition with evidence of corrosion and filler on
most panels. The interior also shows signs of heavy usage with the
leather cracked and torn in places. However. the car does start and
appears to run well and an MoT will be sought prior to the sale. A
perfectly good roadworthy restoration project and a car that could
be bought back to its former glory given some tender loving
care.
