Description

The Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud 2 Drop Head Coupé (DHC) is perhaps ééone of the most beautiful open Rolls-Royces ever built. This example was built in 1961. It is an E-Chassis that was sent to Mulliner. Mulliner was commissioned to provide the car with a body according to desing nummber 7504, according to experts the most beautiful option. A total of only 84 were chosen for this design. All 84 cars were left-hand drive and/or export cars. The car has had only two owners who have always cherished the car. The car is therefore still in very good condition and is to be taken care of. Both optically and technically. The Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud convertible is without a doubt a car that fits in perfectly with the extravagant life in Hollywood. So it will not surprise you that the car was delivered new to its first owner in Hollywood. The second owner also lived in the United States but in New York. However, that is not where she had her car; the car was at her vacation home in the warm state of Florida. As befits a Rolls-Royce, the Silver Cloud was able to have a luxurious life. The first owner owned the car from 1961 to 1968. The second owner even owned it until 2019. We may therefore speak of long term ownership.

The appearance of the car has recently been addressed. The car was repainted, got a pair of new headlights, a new hood and that's all it took to bring the car back to top condition. The body looks great and features nice thin sheet metal, correct fits and gorgeous chrome. The recently renewed convertible top is of course easy to operate and looks beautiful. The car is on the original wheels that have good tires in the correct sizes. The Mulliner bodywork is fortunately still to be admired. The quality really splashes off and when we look at the shapes of the car it gives us to think that not more have chosen this extremely beautiful design. The interior is of the same cloth. The car is equipped with an extremely beautiful color combination. The inside of the Rolls-Royce is equipped with beautiful beige leather that has also been recently renewed. The work was carried out with a great sense of originality and the result is therefore brilliant. The wood on the dashboard is also stunning to look at thanks to recent restoration work. The instruments and controls are of course neatly cared for and also look to be in a league of their own, just as they should in a top class car. The Rolls-Royce is powered by a 90 degree tappet V8. The engine is, of course, completely focused on propelling this big stately British classic as elegantly as possible. The engine is mated to a four-speed automatic transmission that makes driving the Silver Cloud a joy. The technology is perfectly maintained. The brakes are easy to apply and the suspension is perfectly adjusted to smooth out as many bumps as possible. The technique has always been well maintained as well as the rest of the car. In conclusion, the Silver Cloud is beautifully documented, there are old valuation reports that read like a boy's book, pictures of the Rolls-Royce in the United States and invoices of maintenance performed there. In short, not only a beautiful Rolls-Royce to look at but also a pleasure to drive. A rare opportunity to buy a Silver Cloud DHC from a series of only 84 pieces.
