1959 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud I

This 1959 Rolls Royce shooting brake has the standard 4,887 cc F-head in-line six-cylinder engine mated to a smooth four-speed automatic transmission. This is the older traditional Rolls-Royce engine that is both wonderfully smooth and wonderfully reliable. It's a perfect match for the style and purpose of the vehicle. Suspension is the standard independent front with unequal wishbones and coil springs and semi-elliptical leaf springs with a live axle at the rear, which is a perfect choice for a vehicle that will be expected to carry a significant load from time to time.

It is an example of the last of the halcyon days of Rolls-Royce when they were still building cars for adventurous clients and not just for those looking simply for status. It is a car that marks the end of an era. We hope it goes to an appreciative home and to a new owner who will use it in the spirit of the adventurous Rolls-Royce owners of old.
