Description

The Silver Cloud is the first Rolls Royce to be equipped with hydromechanical rear brakes. Its chassis received ultimate suspension refinements.
This was also the first vehicle equipped with an automatic four speed gearbox designed by General Motors (but produced under licence Rolls-Royce standard.)

Two versions were produced:
- the “normal” wheelbase (3.12m)
- the large wheelbase (3.22m)

Our car is a “normal” wheelbase version but a late one, equipped with air conditioning which was a highly valued option of the time in California.
It has had only 3 Californian owners in total, staying with one of them during more than 28 years.

It is in exceptionnal original condition. The car has been partially repainted in its original color. The interior remains original and in perfect condition.
It has 54,350 Miles from new and covered 550 kms since its last service.

User manual, tools and jack.
US papers. EU taxes paid.

The car is visible in our premises, upon appointment only.
