Beautiful! New leather interior! New brakes! Runs and drives
excellent! Have something that nobody else in your neighborhood
could even dream of! Rolls-Royce broke from tradition when it
introduced its Silver Cloud in 1955. Instead of building incomplete
cars and delivering chassis to custom coachbuilders, the SC was a
complete car clothed in a factory-built body. This allowed Rolls to
produce the new car in far greater numbers and with a higher margin
than previously, and helped set the stage for future development.
The Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud body was a beautifully proportioned,
modified razor edge design, and it was a huge hit. The model used a
4,887-cc IOE six-cylinder engine, which dated back to the original
Silver Ghost. GM's four-speed Hydra-Matic transmission was standard
from 1956, when power steering and air conditioning became
optional. Today, the Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud is a fantastically
elegant car with charm, luxury, and presence in spades.
