  • Introduced in 1959, the Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud II set a new standard for luxury cars. For the first time ever, a Rolls-Royce was powered by a V-8 engine and the chassis and suspension were significantly updated from the original Silver Cloud. Although the new Silver Cloud offered a host of innovations, in the traditional sense, ever-conservative Rolls-Royce still implemented a ladder frame chassis that allowed for one-off, Coachbuilt bodywork. 

    Unexpectedly, the factory did not offer an open version of their standard saloon body, and customers who desired the ultimate top-down motoring had to commission a Coachbuilder to create a custom body on the new Rolls-Royce chassis. Perhaps the most exquisite Silver Cloud II of all was the Mulliner Drop Head Coupe, a delightful open body that incorporated the lines of the saloon, giving the car a strong family resemblance. 

    These majestic luxury cars were the favored automobiles of the jet-set and many Coachbuilt Silver Clouds found their way into the garages of aristocrats, bon vivants, and Hollywood celebrities. 

    The magnificent Silver Cloud II Drophead featured here is finished in stunning Masons Black over Tan Connolly leather interior, matching power-folding convertible top with exquisite Burled Walnut woodwork throughout. This incredible motorcar comes with many special ordered unique features including a built-in altimeter, tachometer, high-frequency horns, extra speaker and volume control in the rear as well as factory air conditioning. Just released from a prominent Rolls-Royce collection after 46 years of ownership. Beautifully restored in its original and highly desired color combination, this incredible Rolls-Royce Drophead would be a great addition to any premier collection. Accompanying this investment grade Rolls-Royce are its original owner's manual toolkit records, RROC documentation, as well as build sheets documenting the unique factory options. We are pleased to offer what we believe to be one of the very best Silver Cloud II Convertibles to be found on the market today.

    Offered to the most demanding collector investor or enthusiast who desires the best. 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
