Further Info:

Introduced in 1959, the Silver Cloud II may have looked nigh on indistinguishable from its predecessor but the familiar sheetmetal clothed an all-new alloy 6.2 litre V8 engine, standard-fit power steering and improved ventilation system. Just 2,418 standard wheelbase examples were built between 1959 and 1962. A going concern when purchased by the vendor for £22,000 in 2013, chassis SXC473 was nevertheless treated to a thorough restoration ahead of his wedding. Intended to ensure that the Rolls-Royce helped make the day as special as possible, the work was carried out by JK Engineering Services Ltd of Biggleswade at a reported cost of over £88,000. As well as a bare metal respray and full interior retim in Black and Ivory respectively, the refurbishment included overhauls of the Silver Cloud II's 6.2 litre V8 engine, automatic transmission and differential etc. Attention was also paid to its brightwork, interior woodwork, radiator, wiring, brakes, power assisted steering and suspension etc. The results speak for themselves and this decidedly smart Rolls-Royce is worthy of close inspection. Offered for sale with V5C Registration Document, current MOT certificate and restoration paperwork.
