Built in the 1950s, this classic Rolls Royce is the epitome of classic luxury. If you’re looking to make a statement and stand out from the crowd, this car is your only choice. With its red, hand-stitched leather interior and beautiful wooden dashboard, the Silver Cloud will transport you back in time and to wherever you need to go.

An antique jewel, the Rolls Royce Silver Cloud is the perfect vintage vehicle if you really want to make an entrance at your next important event.

 

It’s Got a Rock & Roll History

Elvis, Frank Sinatra, and John Lennon all owned Rolls Royce Silver Clouds. If that’s not a list of names you want to be associated with, we don’t know what is! Elvis bought his Silver Cloud on September 3rd, 1960. He used it in in LA, Las Vegas, and Memphis and had several other Rolls Royce cars across the country.

 

It Cost £5000 in the 1950s

£5000 doesn’t sound like a lot of money. Well in the 1950s in England £5000 could have bought you a 12-bedroom house. These cars really were built for only the most affluent people.

 

You Could Have Your Own Custom Body Shape

Can you imagine asking for a custom body shape at a car dealership today? Well in the 1950s at Rolls Royce that was an option. Each Silver Cloud was coach built, meaning that it was hand-built to the customer’s specifications.

 

It Was the Car That Changed Rolls Royce’s Image

In the 1950s the world was changing fast on both sides of the Atlantic. Before the Silver Cloud, Rolls Royces were cars designed for and bought by the English aristocracy.

Instead, rock stars, comedians, and other popular figures started driving them round with John Lennon famously painting his in psychedelic colors. These facts changed Rolls Royce’s image forever.

 

It Has Some Impressive Stats

  • Each one took 3 months to build
  • The Silver Cloud weighs 2 tons.
  • The body took 12 coats of paint.
  • Rolls Royce never said how powerful it was, just that it was sufficient.

 

If you want to stand out of the crowd when you turn up to an event, the Silver Cloud is the only choice.
