Silver Cloud II


Barn find ~ 20 year storage

This is a very original, all together, no modification, operating & running Silver Cloud II.

This is 6.2 litre V8, the first V8 developed by Rolls-Royce and used in the Cloud series II and going forward.

The car has the rare feature of air conditioning installed and integrated within the dash. The car also has factory electric windows.

This is a true barn find, stored for the last 20 odd years.

The paint is faded and crazed in various some areas but presents rather shiny still. It deserves a complete repaint. There is the usual rust in the lower quarter panel, typical of Clouds.

The interior is in wonderful presentation with “natural” patina in the leather. Other than a split at the seam on the driver's side, the rest of the leather can, and should be, left as it is. Carpets are generally ok. The headliner is good but in need of a clean. The burl walnut wood throughout is "average"
throughout but with an oil could be made to look nice for driver use.

Mechanically, we have not reviewed it other than added new gas and fire her up. She starts, idles, runs, drives, brakes and comes to a stop. That said, the car should be fully gone through because of having sat for so long.

We have far too many projects on at the moment and cannot dedicate the time to this fine old girl. So we have advertised her for a swift sale. She presents great value for someone wishing to do a "driver restoration" on her.

Very well priced for a clean, original,

The fair to average condition of this car is clearly revealed in the description above and the many photos. For this reason it is necessary for the following condition:

The vehicle is being sold "as-is/where-is" with no warranty expressed, written or implied. Any descriptions or representations are made with reasonable judgment and all efforts are made to ensure fair assessment and accuracy but they are for descriptive and identification purposes only and are not to be construed as a warranty of any type. The seller shall not be responsible for errors in description, authenticity, genuineness, or defects herein and makes no warranty in connection therewith. If any aspect of the description contradicts what can be seen in the photos, then the photos shall prevail as the reference point. No allowance or set aside will be made on account of any incorrectness, unforeseen imperfection, defect or damage. It is the responsibility of the buyer to have satisfied himself as to the condition and value and to bid based upon that judgment solely. The seller shall and will make every reasonable effort to disclose any known defects at the buyer’s request prior to the close of the auction. Seller assumes no responsibility for any repairs regardless of any written or oral statements about the vehicle. Being a classic car in excess of 10 years of age, in mostUSstates, the mileage may be recorded as “exempt”. In this regard the seller makes no warranties as to the accuracy of the mileage indicated or shown and accepts no responsibility for any discrepancy with independent reports such as Carfax, AutoCheck, etc.In this regard the seller makes no warranties as to the accuracy of the mileage indicated or shown. I can hold the vehicle up to 30 days while you arrange shipping but you must immediately insure it. I will not bear any responsibility for any additional costs including storage, transportation, or repair after the close of the auction. Whereas I am happy to store the car in excess of 30 days from auction end, a cost of $35 per day shall apply beyond 30 days of auction end. Also, you must remember that this is a classic +/-57 year old vehicle in poor condition and as such, I do insist you have it shipped.

I am sorry if these terms seem harsh but there seem to be some very unrealistic buyers out there - fortunately, only few of these people exist but those that do can make life difficult, so it appears EVERYTHING needs to
spelled out. Very simply put, this particular Silver Shadow is a very poor condition old car being offered for sale. Further, Rolls-Royces are not without nuances, idiosyncrasies and they are renown for a host of design issues which can make them not inexpensive to maintain. This is well documented in many circles. You need to be a special and considerate type of purchaser to own a Rolls-Royce. Their down-side is part of the fun in owning them! As the old saying goes; "we love to hate them and hate to love them!" So, please respect the terms and conditions when you bid.
