West Sussex Classic Wedding Cars - Rolls Royce
The Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud is an automobile produced by Rolls-Royce Limited from April 1955 to March 1966. It was the core model of the Rolls-Royce range during that period. The 1957 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud I is the perfect boulevard cruiser. The imposing grille, swooping fenders and 212-inch length will get you noticed.
In sales literature the company declared, “With the distinguished appearance of the Rolls-Royce design, goes a performance which fulfills a motorist’s most exacting requirements in every respect.” The 4.9-liter inline six puts out an estimated 178 horsepower, impressive when compared to Chevrolet’s 1957 base 265-ci V8, rated at 162 horses.
The interior wood finish is beautiful with walnut picnic tables and blue-grey upholstery.
Our Bentley S1 is very similar, apart from its radiator grille.
The Rolls-Royce Statesman de Ville (or 20/25) were built between 1929 and 1936 and succeeded the 20 HP as Rolls-Royce's "small car". It was intended to appeal to owner drivers, but many were sold to customers with chauffeurs.
To the interior is an elaborate brocade style fabric with two occasional seats and a cocktail cabinet. It feels as if one were in a 1900 Hotel room. It is finished in Black Leather to the front.
The exterior of the car is finished in Ivory and Black. A capacious motoring trunk is fitted to the rear below the quaint oval rear window. The coachwork is quite upright & imbues the car with a period feel to it.
The car runs in complete silence with a beautifully smooth engine. The steering is play free, light & direct; the gear box easy to use.
