Prize-winning 1960 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud to be Auctioned

Yes, another report from the auction files of Russo and Steele. One of the featured cars at their upcoming Monterey auction (August 16 to 18) is a classic Rolls-Royce. Known as the “Admiral Hudson” after its original owner, this classic has only had two owners, and is now looking for a third.

It was restored between 2008 and 2010 and has picked up eight ribbons in its seven outings since then. That sedate-looking hood hides an inline-6 4,887 cc engine. I’m not a huge fan of Rolls, as I find them rather stodgy looking (no quarrels with the engineering, however), but this one’s a beauty. Hope it finds an appreciative owner who will actually drive it.
