1960 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud II
This particular Cloud II is a long-wheel base limousine model. It was supplied new via Jack Barclay of London to first owner Richard N Scott of the St Martin Preserving Company in Maidenhead. Equipment included power steering, air conditioning, electrically operated windows and glass division and a radio.
In July 1961 the car was acquired by the 18th Earl of Derby, Edward John Stanley, the Lord Lieutenant of Lancashire and future founder of Knowsley Safari Park. According to a copy of the original buff log book, he kept the car for four years before apparently selling it and then buying it back again in 1968.
This car has been used on at least two occasions to carry Her Majesty the Queen, once when she visited Aintree racecourse and again when she inspected the Mersey Dockland development.
How many cars will I need?
Probably two. One vehicle for the mother of the bride, bridesmaids/pageboys and one for the bride and her escort. The main bridal car should be special to the bride (and later the bride and groom,) not ferrying other passengers before the bride gets to travel in it. We do not recommend utilising the main bridal vehicle for multiple trips. Any delays may result in the bride being late and causes unnecessary stress and anxiety.
