Cars handcrafted by the handfuls and assembled only for the lucky few are always part of an upper-class dream. So 1961 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud II already has you interested. And this one retains that true classic style where your nostalgia can also revel in vintage rolling opulence.
We don't have to tell you about this car's elegance and opulence. The Spirit of Ecstasy on the hood is like an announcement to an unyielding commitment to the best of everything. These were purposeful cars that knew how to let the design fully develop. So you see a style line start at the headlight and run uninterruptedly until it meets the sporty arc at the rear door. Brightwork is carefully crafted, and you see that in the curves of the bumper guards, intricate taillight arrangement, and the hallmark waterfall grille. This car is celebrating 60 years, and it really has a graceful look. The documentation shows a restoration around mid-life, which is the right kind of presentation you want. For example, the Dark Cherry and Black two-tone show a good gloss, but has also aged-in correctly. So it shows premium luxury that's not being too boisterous. And what makes this a true upper-class classic is the detail work. It's in the way the wheels include this color theme w/pinstriping, the side marker lights work, and the trim design below the windows conceal the door handles.
This is a true British classic, and so you'll proudly drive from the right-hand side. But the real satisfaction comes from the whole atmosphere this car provides. The real walnut wood that dominates the dash and flows onto the door panels gives this a true warmth. And just like the exterior paint, the leather upholstery remains supple with an aged-in restraint. The rear is just as elegantly appointed, because after all, in a car of this caliber, the owner is not necessarily the driver. There are even fold-down tray tables and power windows so you can re-create the Grey Poupon commercial. But more than just classic elegance, this one has been subtly upgraded to remain comfortable in modern times. For example, the original AM radio is still on display, but the real stereo is an AM/FM/cassette discreetly mounted under the dash. And the air conditioning has been kept in proper condition to keep blowing nice and cold.
Under the classic piano hinge hood is the famous 6.2-liter V8. This ushered in a new era of quiet but powerful motors at Rolls-Royce, and the Silver Cloud II was the launching pad. Utilizing the large displacement and dual SU carburetors, this so successfully met the company's standards for power (especially for swiftly pulling away from stoplights.) So the architecture was in production for many decades to come. With this legacy, it's great to see this motor look this correct and properly maintained to deliver the quality you demand from a Rolls-Royce. That level of ease and rolling opulence is continued with the power steering, large power brakes, and correct GM Hydramatic automatic transmission.
The sale comes complete with the owner's manual, maintenance records, and a workshop manual. This is the best of classic luxury motoring presented with an irresistible style and grace. Call today!!!
