vehicle descriptionA remarkable find, this spectacular example was first acquired by us through a broker in April 1998 from the family of the people who had first registered it in Florida in 1970. It was in entirely original untouched condition at that time with only 23,250 miles traveled from new as shown in the before photographs which accompany the automobile.
The mechanicals were and are in good working order. As part of our normal preparation procedures, the braking system was completely rebuilt, the springs were rebuilt as required for proper standing and ride heights, the existing air conditioner was replaced with an upgraded unit of the period to ensure comfortable conditions in Florida, 5 new BF Goodrich 820x15 tires were fitted, all systems were serviced and the exhaust system renewed as necessary. The body had never been damaged or rusted but the original finish was unsurprisingly faded so we elected to refinish the coachwork in lacquer to the original Tudor Grey. The interior woods were undamaged but dull. They have been stripped and refinished to show quality. The car was supplied from new with some desirable factory options including a tachometer and altimeter fitted to the dashboard. The headliner was replaced and correct limousine style air conditioning ducts were incorporated. The carpets were replaced with correct Wilton I wool and the Beige leather to the front seats and armrests were replaced.
The automobile was then supplied to one of our more meticulous clients from whom we have been fortunate to reacquire it with only 27,946 miles to date.
Correct handbooks, unplundered tools and factory history are all included. We believe this to be the finest Silver Cloud II available anywhere.
