1959 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud I

Chassis number : LSKG 39

Share on:

Sold for $90,750 at 2016 RM Sothebys : Amelia Island.
In April 1955 the new Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud appeared. Rolls-Royce chief designer John Polwhele Blatchley had tailored the attractive perfectly balanced body.

The Silver Cloud I is powered by a 6-cylinder in-line engine with a cast-iron cylinder block, bore x stroke 95.25x114.3mm capacity, 4887cc; aluminum alloy cylinder head; twin SU carburetors, and a four-speed automatic gearbox (manual four-speed gearbox to special order); and features a hypoid bevel final drive independent front suspension with coil springs, semi-elliptic springs rear, servo-assisted drum brakes, on a 3124.2mm wheelbase.

Tailored to the American market, this Rolls-Royce features rare factory air conditioning and power windows. It is an original left-hand-drive example. It was sold on April 27, 1959, for $8,600 to Irene Springer of Stone Harbor, New Jersey. It was sold in June of 1983 to William Traylor of Birmingham, Michigan, from who the present owner, its third since new, purchased it in 1985.

Mark Schlachter of MetalKraft CoachWerkes of Cincinnati was commissioned for a 1½-year restoration of the body, undercarriage, interior, and engine bay. The concours-quality car then won Best in Class honors at several Rolls-Royce Owners Club meets, as well as several conours d'elegance, including Amelia Island. It is finished in an original factory Shell Gray and Claret two-tone paint scheme. It has its original burled walnut veneers and a custom matching burled walnut steering wheel by Rau Restorations of Los Angeles. All-new Connolly leather hides, wool headliner, and Wilton 1 carpet were utilized, with black square-weave carpeting for the boot.
