Hey there!

And welcome to our Rolls Royce Silver Cloud build we did here at PBC.

1959 was a big year for Rolls Royce, and that’s why keeping the mint condition is so precious.

…..We had the pleasure of making that happen, and you get to see the process it takes.

A Brief History: 

The Silver Cloud model was introduced in October 1959 and proceeded to make its mark in history.

1959 was also the year that Rolls Royce beat Bentley’s production numbers; with 2,716 being built between 1959 and 1962 alone.

The Silver Cloud was also the first to use Rolls-Royce’s aluminum, “6.2-liter, 230-hp V-8 engine

which had been in the planning stages since 1947.”

This Rolls came in the shop with ONLY 5,200 miles on it!

After some paint and TLC (read on for details), this bad boy was ready for some more miles.

See what we do: 

One of the things needed to be done was SHOW QUALITY paint.

 

Some mechanics work was done as well.

That consisted of a brake job, uptuned radio and some interior work.

It also got new door bumpers and an oil change.
