The Rolls Royce Silver Cloud II has long been one of my favorite cars.
Although I am in no way a “Foreign Car Guy,” I have always admired the styling and engineering of the Silver Cloud II.
It just has wonderful flowing lines and was the last of the single headlight cars and the first of the V8 overhead valve engine cars.
Henry Royce always wanted to build a flawless car and therefore the Rolls Royce was way over engineered.
Everything on the car was heavier and stronger than it needed to be by most standards,
but the objective was to have no failures and build the most perfect car possible.
Twenty-four hundred and seventeen 1960 Silver Clouds were production.
Tom’s silver Rolls Royce is one of the most attractive I have ever seen.
He recently purchased the car with only 36,000 original miles on it.
The car weighs 4,647 pounds and was built in Crewe, England. The horsepower is simply stated as “Adequate”.
Tom’s car is a left hand steer car with a hydramatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, power windows
and factory installed air conditioning.
And yes, Tom does have a jar of Grey-Poupon on the tray in the back seat.
