Specific description This Rolls Royce Silver Cloud I DHC by Mulliner, was ordered new by The Drug Research Corporation of Westhampton, New York, for its President John T. Andre. This RR with Chassis n° LSLG110 is one of the last Cloud I Series and 1 out of 10 cars mad in LHD with the design n° 7504. The second owner was Mr. Eric Lorentzen, a wealthy businessman living in Paradise Valley in Arizona, who made its fortune in manufacturing Venetian Blinds. In 1996 the car was sold to a Dutch singer Rene Froger, who kept it till 2009. Then it changed hands to Mr. Michel Hehenkamp, who entirely restored this Rolls Royce. The car has been restored in its original colour and is matching numbers. This extremely elegant car is a pleasure to drive and ready to be enjoyed by its new owner.

Model description Construction was body-on-frame, which permitted special bodied versions, though the overwhelming majority were built with the standard Pressed Steel Company manufactured steel body shell. A light-weight aluminium-based alloy was used for doors, bonnet/hood and boot/trunk lid. The chassis was a simple steel box section, welded together and very rigid. The car was 5.38 m (212 in) long, 1.90 m (75 in) wide, and massed 1.95 tonnes. The engine was a 155 hp / 4000 rpm 4.9 L six-cylinder unit with inlet over exhaust valves: twin SU carburettors were added in September 1957. The standard transmission was a four-speed automatic, the General Motors sourced Hydramatic transmission. The turning circle was 41 feet 8 inches (12.70 m). Brakes were hydraulic and assisted by the Rolls-Royce mechanical servo with 11 in (279 mm) drums and suspension was independent coils at the front and semi-elliptic springs at the rear. Twin brake master cylinders were incorporated from April 1956. Power steering and air conditioning became available as options in 1956. A long-wheelbase version lengthened by 4 in (102 mm) was also made available in September 1957, outwardly very similar to the existing car but offering improved leg space for rear-seat passengers.
