This 1958 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud is presented in the elegant combination of Shell Grey and Corinthian Silver.
Rolls-Royce broke from tradition when it introduced its Silver Cloud in 1955. Instead of building incomplete cars and delivering chassis to custom coach builders, the SC was a complete car clothed in a factory-built body. This allowed Rolls to produce the new car in far greater numbers and with a higher margin than previously and helped set the stage for future development.
The Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud body was a beautifully proportioned, modified razor edge design, and it was a huge hit. The model used a 4,887-cc IOE six-cylinder engine, which dated back to the original Silver Ghost. GM’s four-speed Hydra-Matic transmission was standard from 1956, when power steering and air conditioning became optional. The SCs had adjustable shock absorbers that were operated by a lever on the steering column, and the brakes got a second master cylinder in 1956. Chassis and suspension were operated by a total-loss Bijur system, with an oil tank on the firewall.
Today, the Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud is a fantastically elegant car with charm, luxury, and presence in spades. As always, when looking at a Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud, buy only the best cars with complete records and a detailed ownership trail.
