1961 Silver Cloud Royce

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 for yourself: 

 

See what we do: 

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

Here are some photos pertaining to us achieving just that.

Above we have every part of the car, NOT being painted, sectioned off with paper and taped down.

 

 

The two photos above are of the car, BEFORE being painted and AFTER being sanded down.

 

The photo above shows the car in the process of being painted, the top half will be covered once done, to be able and paint the bottom half.

 

 

 

Above are some photos of the car DONE with paint. You can see the high gloss and how reflective and smooth it is…..true aspects of 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.
