1958 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud: Magnolia Pearl?

left

No, this is not a barn find, it’s just so, well unique that we had to feature it. Some creations really leave you asking why and this one is definitely one of those. Have you ever wanted an off road Rolls Royce to explore the wilderness in flower pattern comfort? If so, here’s your chance! This 1958 Rolls Royce Magnolia Pearl is listed here on eBay and it’s only $48,000! It’s located in Helotes, Texas, near San Antonio.

It’s as outrageous on the inside as on the outside, featuring cut velvet upholstery, antique rugs and lace as well as antique ceiling tin. The engine is a new 340 crate motor. Just think, somewhere in our wonderful world there is someone willing and able to purchase this! The owner suggests it might make a great Christmas present. What would you wife say? Perhaps she’ll like the rugs and lace?

    Hippy, no. Did you check out the Magnolia Pearl clothing line? More like crass capitalism. Somebody buys that stuff. So glad it’s not my wife!

    Well it has our attention, so from a publicity perspective it’s working.

    I don’t know which is worse. People who let good cars just rust away and never do anything with them or people who do things like this.

      You forgot people who complain about what other people do with the things they own. They’re the worst of all.

        Second uncle Bob’s comment, why so much mindless aggression?

    Some type of cloud, silver or otherwise, was in play when this thing was built and later priced for sale!

    While it is definitely not “my cup of tea”, It was created to attract attention. It certainly does that…

    Oh relax, guys. It’s kinda fun, in an “eccentric Maharajah” kind of way! Pearl Magnolia is selling (or sold) the matching Airstream, as well; the pair was used as a mobile clothing shop for years.

    While the shabby chic hippie aesthetic isn’t my taste… it’s not a slap-dash build by any means. I think it takes these two non-rare examples of luxury objects and elevates them to performance art.

    How did the seller come up with 48K? They say that there is an ass for every seat, however they may have long wait to find the right ass for this seat at that price.

    So they screwed up a vintage RR, a vintage Airstream, and a Chevy truck chassis…

    Maybe $4800.00.

    The engine is not a 340 .distributer of a 340 is in the front not the back of the engine.

    I’ve actually seen a number of very nicely hot-rodded Rolls-Royces and Bentleys . . . this just isn’t one of them though – for me the jacked up, jerked off 4×4 chassis is repulsive.
