Ordered new for Scotland via the Clyde Motor Company for one William Black Esq, The car was delivered on January 18th of 1960.
This car was under long term ownership for over three decades before more recently being acquired by a prominent member & historian of the Rolls Royce Enthusiasts Club. Durig his tenure he has spent sigificant money & completed the follwong list of work:
During the past two years over £20,000 has been spent on the restoration and this is a resume of this work
1 New interior, carpets and headlining.
2 Sunroof removed and serviced (spare roof top is also provided).
3 All mechanical work on the engine and brakes together with any necessary work on the chassis.
4 Total respray.
5 Seats revitalised. These are good since they have always had covers over them.
6 Expensive radio and CD fitted in the glove compartment.
7 New tyres.
8 New windscreen.
9 New gaiters are fitted to the rear springs.
10 It is fitted with a SS exhaust system.
Indicated mileage is 123,000 which seems correct from the history file that comes with the car. This is a car that drives absolutely perfectly as a Silver Cloud ought, but rarely does. The engine is silent. The gear changes imperceptible. The ride soft & cossetting. It is a credit to the last owner & the money he has lavished upon it. It sits on motorway at well above legal speeds & simply devours the miles throown at it.
The car is finished in its original & very traditional colours of sand over sable. To the interior is original cream leather. The dash Walnut is highly figured & extends to the occasional tables fitted to the seat backs.
Both power steerinng & power windows were specified on the order sheet. A large Webasto sun roof is also fitted. Noise free at speed it affords semi alfresco motoring when open. The tool kit is complete & in its appointed place in the boot.
