Description: The Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud and the virtually identical Bentley S-lype were revealed in 1955. Beautifully proportioned, exquisitely constructed and near-silent in operation, they were everything

The Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud and the virtually identical Bentley S-lype were revealed in 1955. Beautifully proportioned, exquisitely constructed and near-silent in operation, they were everything the traditional Rolls buyer could have hoped for.

This was Crewe’s second “standard steel” car alter the post-war Dawn and R-Tvpe, with an off-the-peg factory body rather than a made-to-measure hand­crafted aluminium item in the pre-war tradition. Mulliner Park Ward, James Young and others all built exquisite special bodies on this chassis, and there was a long-wheelbase version of the standard body with an extra four inches (10cm) of rear leg room and a division. The traditional Rolls and Bentley radiator grilles were retained – these and a few badges and items of insignia were the only differences between the two otherwise identical cars. They rode on a substantial, and resolutely separate, traditional box-section chassis with independent front suspension and rear damper rales that could be altered from the driving scat to suit whatever type of road you were thinking of taking your Bentley or Rolls down. The interior was nothing if not luxurious, with superbly crafted leather seats and a magnificent walnut dashboard.

The engine in the Cloud and SI was basically the same 4.9-litre power unit carried over from the previous R-lype (and Silver Dawn), except that it had a new aluminium cylinder head and twin St carburettors. Transmission at the start offered a choice of either four-speed synchromeshed manual or four-speed Hydramatic automatic, manufactured under licence by Rolls from General Motors in the USA. In fact, af ter just 18 months, the manual option was dropped,and Rolls never encouraged owners to order it anyway. While the engine was incredibly refined, it wasn’t really that powerful – the maximum speed was 106mph (ITOkph). It was Rolls-Royce’s policy never to reveal specific power outputs but the estimated 178bhp had 40cwt (2032kg) to pull along.

The S-lype, known retrospectively as the SI, and the Silver Cloud 1, were built until 1959, with 3,072 Bentleys being made against 2,238 Rolls-Royces.
