1958 Rolls-Royce

May 2nd, 2012 | By | Category: Automotive Reviews

Only one percent of all Silver Clouds carry truly bespoke coachwork, and this particular model, produced by Freestone & Webb, is considered to be one of the rarest and most important post-war Rolls-Royce models in existence. The radically-designed drophead coupe style features on only two other cars in the world. Whilst most 1950′s Rolls-Royces wore graceful rounded side panels, the body sides of this car has concave coves stretching from stern to stern, while rear wings feature aggressive vertical tail fins.

Designed for just two passengers, the pair of bucket seats has fold-down armrests and adjustable seat backs. Coupled with a spacious luggage compartment fitted with scarlet wool carpet and leather binding, the car was given the ‘Honeymoon Express’ moniker by design journalists who first saw the style debut at the Earl’s Court Show in 1958. Power comes from a 178hp 4.9-liter six-cylinder engine mated to a four-speed Hydra-Matic automatic transmission but it’s the scarlet red Connolly leather interior with all it luxury appointments that grabs the attention.
