Breathing new life into a Silver Cloud 1

Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud 1

This sophisticated Silver Cloud 1 has a particularly rare James Young body, being one of only a small number which were produced, and possibly the only one still in existence.

It came to us partially restored as a bare metal body, and has undergone extensive panel repairs to overcome the effects of an accident years before. All the interior wood cappings and the dashboard have been repaired and refinished and the chrome work has been replated throughout. The body work is now as good as when it was originally built.

Having been repainted in an elegant silver over grey, all that remains is for the trimming to be re-instated.

It is a fine example of 1950s bespoke coachwork and a testament to classic design and engineering.
