  • The magnificent 1961 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud II LWB featured here is finished in stunning Cellon Blue over dark blue Connolly leather interior surrounded by magnificent burled Walnut woodwork throughout. This incredible motorcar has been meticulously maintained from new and driven a mere 44,818 miles. Accompanying this investment-grade Silver Cloud II LWB are its original books, manuals, and complete hand and road tools. This motorcar is one of only 299 long-wheelbase models produced and one of very few with the desirable electric division window and rear radio controls. We are extremely proud to offer what we believe to be one of the very best, lowest mile examples of a 1961 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud II LWB to be found anywhere in the world to the most sophisticated collector, investor, or enthusiast who demands the best!

    By 1959, Rolls-Royce had discovered that as smooth, silent, and Swiss-watch-reliable as its inline six-cylinder engine really was, the great mill was at the end of its lifespan. Accordingly, the company replaced its original Silver Cloud model with the Silver Cloud II. Under the hood of this new offering was a 380-cubic inch V-8 engine, which was built to a sophisticated design by using numerous lightweight components. It was mated to a smooth-shifting automatic transmission and came with power brakes, power-assisted steering, a radio, whitewall tires, and updated climate-control systems.

     

    The Silver Cloud II, as it is known to enthusiasts, was in production for four years. Scarcest were the long-wheelbase models—measuring 127 inches between the axles—which were fitted with an extended version of the factory “steel saloon” bodywork. These featured additional legroom to the rear compartment, a large walnut bulkhead behind the front seat, and, more often than not, a division window; the combination of all these features essentially created a limousine, which was nicknamed the “Baby Phantom.”

    Of the 2,717 Silver Cloud II chassis produced, only 299 were the long-wheelbase version, marking them as one of the rarest Rolls-Royces models of their era.

    For all of you who are not familiar, Rolls-Royce no longer exists as it has for the past hundred years; it is now owned by BMW and models are being mass-produced. The days of cars being handcrafted by artisans in Crewe are now just a fond memory. This particular car was built at a time when Rolls-Royce was truly building the world’s finest motorcars with the care and craftsmanship evident in every detail.

     

    Classic cars have proven to be among the most resilient and rewarding investments in recent years, with the Historic Automobile Group Index (HAGI) jumping 39% in 2013, 16% in 2014, and 17% in 2015 while posting gains of 467% over the last 10 years.

    Financing

    Finance rates as low as 5.9%.


    We know that classic car financing can pose a unique challenge. Although a vintage or exotic car can be an excellent investment, some financial institutions attempt to apply standard “used car” rules for financing a classic car, which in many cases can make loan approval difficult.


    We work closely with many banking institutions that understand and recognize the collector value of classic cars and view them as an investment, which allows us to help you get the financing you need so that you can have the car you have dreamed of.


    Terms available up to 144 Months


    If you have any questions, feel free to contact us, (314)291-7000 or credit@schmitt.com
