Automakers 1955 until 1966 have attempted to convey senses of calm and luxury in their cars for decades, but Rolls-Royce is one of the few whose names are as legendary as their models. This car is sterling, and it is soft. Any questions? Not to be confused with the more familiar Silver Shadow that followed, the Silver Cloud hearkens back to a time when Old Money was still Old Money and just a little less so. It's appropriate for a car that looks like an old bank building on wheels, with approximate size to match.
