1959 Rolls-RoyceSilver Cloud I
Chassis No. SLG34
A fabulous, correct and original car, which has covered just 49,000 miles from new. If you appreciate correctness and originality, you are likely to love this car, which is undisturbed, extremely sound and one glance at it will confirm that it has had a charmed life. The Sand & Sable paintwork and the chrome-work are excellent and in particular, the interior is just lovely, with soft leather, superb woodwork and carpets like new, protected by over rugs. Lifting the bootlid reveals a remarkable, untouched luggage compartment, being virtually as new! The distinctive black boot carpet is pristine, as is the tool compartment, with the tools still in their clips and the tyre pump still has its manufacturer's label attached! The car is a desirable, late specification, with power steering and high compression engine which, when added to the car's condition, makes it something even more special and appealing. Complete with original buff logbook, a long run of MoT certificates, various invoices for maintenance & repairs and several valuation certificates. The car speaks for itself and drives as you would expect it to.
