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

This early example of a Silver Cloud is in sound condition and
the interior has a lovely patina to it. the black coachwork is
complimented by grey trim. The huge seats are almost armchair like
in their comfort and the walnut picnic tables are ideal for a
Sunday afternoon cup of tea. The smooth and effortless way in which
this car progresses down the road is synonymous of such a
prestigious marque and. some would say. this is Rolls-Royce at its
best. Supplied with a V5 registration document and a current MoT
test certificate. together with a history file. this Silver Cloud
is one of the better examples.
