ROLLS-ROYCE SILVER CLOUD (1959-1965) CAR HISTORY

Car review on ROLLS-ROYCE SILVER CLOUD

The Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud and the virtually identical Bentley S-Type were revealed in 1955. Beautifully proportioned, exquisitely constructed and near-silent in operation, they were everything the traditional Rolls buyer could have hoped for.


This was Crewe's second "standard steel" car after the post-war Dawn and R-Type, with an off-the-peg factory body rather than a made-to-measure hand-crafted aluminum item in the pre-war tradition. Mulliner Park Ward, James Young and others all built exquisite special bodies on this chassis, and there was a long-wheelbase version of the standard body with an extra four inches (10cm) of rear leg room and a division. The traditional Rolls and Bentley radiator grilles were retained - these and a few badges and items of insignia were the only differences between the two otherwise identical cars. They rode on a substantial, and resolutely separate, traditional box-section chassis with independent front suspension and rear damper rates that could be altered from (lie driving seat to suit whatever type of road you were thinking of taking your Bentley or Rolls down. The interior was nothing if not luxurious, with superbly crafted leather seats and a magnificent walnut dashboard.


The engine in the Cloud and S1 was basically the same 4.9-litre power unit carried over from the previous R-Type (and Silver Dawn), except that it had a new aluminum cylinder head and twin SU carburetors. Transmission at the start offered a choice of either four-speed synchromesh manual or four-speed Hydromantic automatic, manufactured under license by Rolls from General Motors in the USA. In fact, after just 18 months, the manual option was dropped, and Rolls never encouraged owners to order it anyway. While the engine was incredibly refined, it wasn't really that powerful - the maximum speed was 106 mph (170 kph). It was Rolls-Royce's policy never to reveal specific power outputs but the estimated 178 bhp had40cwt (2032kg) to pull along.

The S-Type, known retrospectively as the S1, and the Silver Cloud 1, were built until 1959, with 3,072 Bentleys being made against 2,238 Rolls-Royces. Bentley/Rolls fans today are split on whether the S1 Series are better than the later V-eight-powered SII and SIII cars, the latter having a lower bonnet line and quad headlamps reckoned by some to spoil the cars' looks. The V-eights are far more powerful — good for nearly 120 mph (193 kph) with a likely 200 bhp and far more torque on tap — but not as refined and quiet. American-inspired (some say by the Chrysler hemi), this alloy engine was the unit Rolls had wanted for the car all along. It's just that it took, in typical Crewe style, an awfully long time to make perfect. Rolls engineers started work on the unit in the very early 1950s, intending that it would be one of the world's best. It survives in vastly updated form in today's Rolls and Bentley cars.


To own and drive a Bentley is a satisfying and ethereal experience as long as you don't want blistering performance and can afford the expensive maintenance. These days, it's cheaper to buy but costly to restore.
