Vintage and Prestige Fine Motor Cars are proud to be offering this 1959 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud 1 for sale. The very last Silver Cloud 1 ever to be produced and therefore, the last six cylinder car made by Rolls Royce. The history of this Rolls Royce Silver Cloud 1 is available having covered 88,000 miles throughout its life during the tenure of its four fastidious owners.
The Rolls Royce Silver Cloud 1was ordered new for South African use where it spent its first fourteen or so. From new, the Rolls Royce Silver Cloud 1was specified with tropical equipment such as the oil bath air filter which pleasingly it retains today. We handle quite a few Silver Clouds every year and we have to say that this is the finest example we have ever had the pleasure of driving.
Both the current and former keepers have lavished money on it without regards to expense to keep it in "best in world" condition. On file are recent bills for an £18,000 engine rebuild performed by ‘marque’ specialist Mark Taylor of Birdham. A bare metal re-spray in the original period colour of smoke green has also been completed to a very high standard.
Interior leather has been replaced where necessary to keep the Rolls Royce Silver Cloud 1in show winning order whilst retaining originality. The Rolls Royce Silver Cloud 1 has brand new deep pile lamb’s wool over rugs just fitted. Seating is sandstone coloured hide all in perfect order under the original headlining fitted when new.
The current owner, well known in Rolls Royce club circles has decided to relinquish the Rolls Royce Silver Cloud 1due to his advancing age and difficulty in driving the vehicle. This is a first class Rolls Royce car in impeccable condition that has won many prizes at many events. It also benefits from being a historically important Rolls Royce as it is the last ever produced. A thick file of invoices comes with the Rolls Royce Silver Cloud 1attesting to the level of care it has received over the years. To drive this car is to understand how they were when new.
