1961 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud II
Fabulous solid example with a spectacular interior. Recent mechanical refreshening. Runs well. Over $20,000 spent in current receipts. Rare Webasto sunroof. Owned and maintained by an officer in the Navy. Purchased in Britain and brought here about 20 years ago.
This Silver Cloud II was the first factory produced Rolls with a V-8 that was designed to be driven by the owner. All previous models were designed for the owner to sit in the back, leaving the driver’s compartment a bit stuffy and sometimes open to the elements! The Cloud series was truly made for the well healed owner to operate and enjoy. Fabulous styling made these cars an over night success. The early Cloud I’s had a 6 cylinder. The later Cloud II’s had dual headlights. Just like the three bears and Goldilocks, the Cloud II featured single headlights svelte grace and the stoic deliberate power and strength of the refined V-8 coupled to a GM hydraulic gearbox. The result Goldilocks? The Cloud II was (is) just right!!!
