The Big News from Rolls-Royce in the early 1960's was the new 6230cc Aluminum Cylinder Block Overhead Valve V-8 Engine. Only slightly heavier than its 4887cc F-head 6-cylinder predecessor the new V-8 made Rolls-Royce's traditional “adequate” horsepower more than just adequate. Power was being diffused in the early 60's with accessories like power steering and air conditioning. The V-8 gave Rolls-Royce all it needed to meet ancillaries' needs and still leave most traffic in its stately wake. It wast at this time the well known phrase 'at 60mph the loudest noise in a Rolls-Royce comes from the electric clock was born.
The “Standard Steel Saloon” from the Crewe factory was elegant and appointed lavishly. This is a choice example of the Silver Cloud and is nicely Equipped with Automatic Transmission, Standard Power Steering, Power-Assisted Brakes, Power Window lifts, Fog lamps, AM-FM Sound System, Most of the original Large & Small Hand Tools, White Side Wall Tyres, Picnic Tables and much more.
