Technical specifications, photos and description:
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

can testify that this appears to be the case. The general condition
appears to be reasonable for such a journeyed car. The leather
interior is in fair condition considering its age and unfortunately
we cannot comment on the car under the wrap. prospective bidders
are advised to satisfy themselves in this respect.
