For Sale: 1962 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud II in Charlotte, North Carolina

$45,000 (OBO)

Vehicle Description

1962 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud II right-hand drive long-wheel base sedan with electric divider window and air-conditioning; an English classic and true factory limousine.  Car number 23 in a series of only 25 produced that year.  The Silver Cloud II was introduced in 1959 with little changed externally from the previous model; however, it now had a 6.2 litre V8 engine.  Performance was greatly improved over the 6-cylinder Silver Cloud I and top speed was raised to 183 km/h (114 mph), but the main improvements were in acceleration and torque. Power steering became standard. Electrically operated windows were now available as an option.  This car rides very comfortably on the 127" wheelbase with independent coil suspension at the front and semi-elliptic springs at the rear.  Although it has never been completely restored, this car sports excellent paint over very straight body panels.  The two-tone paint scheme really accentuates the long lines and tall grille of this very handsome car.  All seating surfaces and armrests have been recovered in green leather; all wood including tray tables, dash, and door mouldings are original and in remarkable shape.  Aircraft-style seat belts in matching dark green fabric have been added for the comfort and safety of all passengers.  Individual controls in the rear compartment operate the divider window, air-conditioning, and radio volume.  In keeping with the uncluttered appearance of a Rolls-Royce interior, there are no visible door locks; one merely pushes the interior door handle forward to lock the door and pulls back to unlock and open the door.  Recent mechanical services include replacing all spark plugs, inspection of carburetor and replacing sunken float, rebuilding the front brakes, replacement of rear wheel cylinders, flush and bleed of braking system, rebuild of alternator, charging of air-conditioning system, installation of seat belts, replacing valve cover seals and repainting valve covers.  All repair work done locally by noted vintage Rolls-Royce specialists.  Car is located in private garage in Charlotte, North Carolina.
