Following years of refinement and testing the Rolls Royce Silver Cloud came out in 1955 as the heir apparent to the well-received Silver Dawn, which ended production as the Silver Cloud entered it. The construction as usual would consist of a frame and mechanical components from Rolls Royce combined with a body by a popular coachbuilder such as H.J. Mulliner to allow for special variants and custom orders. But almost all Silver Clouds would have a steel body with a more rounded figure compared to the sharper angles of earlier Rolls Royce. The specific style could still be quite changeable anywhere from convertibles to coupes; the standard image of the Silver Cloud is as a four-door sedan.
An advanced air induction system would improve circulation and improved front suspension as well as overall handling with power steering and air conditioning added on post-1956 models. The 4000 RPM six-cylinder engine could drive the Cloud to a top speed of 102 mph, which was fairly impressive for its size. An even larger wheelbase would be made optional in 1957 to further enhance the spacious, luxury feel.
