Introduced in 1955 the Silver Cloud continued Rolls-Royce's conservative tradition of introducing new models with the preceding well-developed and refined drivetrains.
In this case, the new Silver Cloud with its longer, lower chassis, softer suspension and modern standard steel coachwork relied upon the proven and highly developed 4,887cc F-head six-cylinder engine and automatic transmission. It was the finest automobile in the world and countenanced no contender for the title.
This 1957 Silver Cloud Saloon is lefthand drive and has led an unusually good life and unlike many of its counterparts has never had, nor needed, a restoration.
Finished in Shell Grey over Black, it is upholstered in rich oxblood leather and has been outfitted with modern air conditioning that blows cold. It also has a radio and writing tables in the rear compartment.
The paint, interior and carpets are recent and it comes from long term ownership where it was regularly maintained by a trained Rolls-Royce technician who kept it in first class mechanical condition, fully sorted and ready for use at a moment's notice. It has no bad stories, a car that can be fired up and driven instantly.
Silver Clouds rarely appear in such consistently maintained, orderly condition after years of caring ownership where its every need was met promptly and professionally.
