1961 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud

Story and History

1961 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud II - 2 Owners only

What a pretty example we have with us here - supplied to a Knight of the Realm in Guildford when new she remained within the same family ownership until 2011 - most unusual if not remarkable

A chum of ours actually moved into their house and managed to take over ownership so his name is in the log book now - at the same address as the original owner!!!

There is a log of maintenance and mileage, as is often the case with cars from this period and before which validates the mileage to be now 187.000 - after 14 years she had already travelled 140.000 and a had got up to 170.000 in the early 1980's - ergo very little use over the last 20 years or so where she has spent most of her time in storage

Our chum has undertaken a full recommissioning with the local Bentley specialist, who incidentally has looked after this wonderful for very many years in the past

The brakes were overhauled, the gearbox serviced and full band adjustment carried out, heater hoses and taps were sorted out, electrical works undertaken and basically anything which needed attention had it!!

To the extent that even the engine has been rebuilt

She is still running in having come to us with 400 miles covered and we have covered another 250 trouble free miles at which point we have changed the oil and filter, which we will do again after another 600 miles as well as checking clearances and timings at that stage

Cosmetically she has been the beneficiary of a top coat repaint so that she now present in a smart and bright manner - all chrome work is super - whilst the interior has seen the woodwork being refurbished, the seats and door cards too and there is a new set of wilton carpets bound in matching beige hide

A really unusual opportunity to own a low ownership, known history standard steel Silver Cloud which has been basically "brought back to life"!!
