Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud Long-Wheelbase Saloon is a Park Ward conversion of the elegant steel saloon, lengthened to suit the 4-inch increase in wheelbase. The car is designed for dual-purpose use viz. as a limousine, chauffeur driven, with the electrically-operated glass division raised, as well as for holiday/ pleasure motoring when the division could be lowered. The side windows are also electrically-operated.
Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud is now designated 'Silver Cloud II' and features a number of changes including a larger engine (V8, 6230-cc in place of six-cylinder 4887-cc) power-assisted steering as standard, revised facia and the heating, demisting and air cooling units located under the front wings.

Rolls-Royce Phantom V Limousine was introduced in the summer of 1959. A long wheelbase, luxuriously equipped vehicle, which is mechanically similar to the Silver Cloud and Bentley Series 'S' models is available in a number of styles including seven-seater versions from James Young and Park Ward and touring models from James Young and H. J. Mulliner.
