1959 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud 1

 The 1959, Rolls Royce Silver Cloud I long-based, 6 cylinder, saloon was purchased new by Mr. and Mrs. Dent of La Jolla, California, and delivered to Thunderbird Country Club.  During these years, it was chauffeur-driven.   It was later purchased by a British aviator from Canada.  John & Bunny Foster lived in the Malibu area and were very active in the National and Southern California Rolls Royce Owners Clubs.  John served several terms as President of both organizations.   They enjoyed touring and drove the Proper Motor Car (PMC) many trouble free miles.  When John reached a time when he was not supposed to drive any longer, we purchased the car. To them, it was like parting with a beloved child.  This vehicle has been seen in many movies, mini-series, and T.V. ads including: The “Columbo Series”, “Murder She Wrote” Series, “Loveboat” Series, “The Thornbirds”, “Scarecrow and Mrs. King” Series, “Fresno” Mini-Series and was the Rolls Royce featured in the first “Grey Poupon” commercial which made the reply “but of course…” popular. We have driven it on many tours and for special occasions such as prom night or weddings for friends.  The “Cloud” is a comfortable car with great backseat leg room.
