Replacing the Silver Dawn, the Silver Cloud was the core model of the Rolls-Royce vehicle range from April 1955 until March 1966, during which time it changed little externally. The chassis was a simple steel box section, welded together and very rigid. Construction retained the traditional split between chassis and body, which facilitated the provision of special bodied versions though in practice the overwhelming majority of cars were delivered with the standard steel body shell, produced by Pressed Steel, and employing lightweight aluminium based alloy for the doors, bonnet/hood and boot/trunk lid. The car was 5.38m (212 in) long, 1.90m (75 in) wide, and massed 1.95 tonnes. The Silver Cloud II was introduced in 1959 with a new 6.2-litre V8 engine that dramatically improved performance, while power steering became standard and electrically operated rear windows became available as an option.
