Footnotes

  • Introduced in the autumn of 1959, the classically elegant Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud II and Bentley S2 appeared externally unchanged from their immediate predecessors, though the duo's performance was considerably enhanced by their new 6,230cc aluminium-alloy V8 engine. Although wider and shorter than the 'six' it replaced, this new power unit fitted relatively easily within the engine bay, relocation of the steering box from inside to outside of the chassis frame being the most obvious alteration to the previous arrangements. Rolls-Royce's own four-speed automatic gearbox was now the only transmission on offer, and power steering was standardised. Immensely successful both at home and abroad, the pair remained in production until the autumn of 1962.

    The private vendor advises us that this original right-hand drive example has spent over half its life in the dry climate of Las Vegas, USA. There is said to be no rust to either the body or chassis, while the leather upholstery is described as supple and free of wear and the carpets as good. Restored in the mid-1980s, the car benefits from a brand new stainless steel exhaust system (150 miles since installation) and a recent braking system overhaul: new master cylinder, pipes, flexi-hoses, etc. After-market air conditioning and a DAB radio/CD player are the only notified deviations from factory specification. Offered with current MoT and a V5C document.
