1961 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud

Story and History

1961 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud II - complete history since new & 3 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 at that time to be 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 undertook 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

Cosmetically she had the benefit 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

We sold her to one of our more regular customers who bought her for his Honeymoon trip down to the Loire this summer

He had a new exhaust system fitted and the brake master cylinders replaced by renowned West Hoathly Garage in Sussex and she performed faultlessly on the 2.000 mile round trip for the romantic trip around the Loire

Time moves on and now a trip to the USA beckons on a more full time basis and the Silver Cloud is now looking for a new home

So we have a very unusual Cloud, with a known history since new, in tip top running condition and really pretty colours
