Firestone Whitewall Tyres
Finest Firestone Whitewall Tyres for this car
One of the good things running a garage these days. As expected, you never know what car will turn up at any given time.
Today was no exception.Thus, we had a 1950’s Rolls-Royce Cars presented to us for a MOT test.Hence, the car was on 820×15 vintage Firestone Whitewall Tyre .Accordingly, the car was a Silver Cloud mk1 made between 1955 and 1958 and ran on a straight six engine. Of course, it had a chassis that made of box steel section which was a robust and rigid construction. Much of the rest of the car was made of light alloy to keep down the weight.
The gearbox was a four-speed automatic. Naturally, the brakes were servo assisted. Equipped, with power steering and air conditioning.Which becoming an option in the later models. The car weighed in at nearly two tonnes and did only about fifteen miles to the gallon and 0 to 60 in about fourteen seconds Tyres were an option the original make was Dunlop tyres, but Firestone Whitewall Tyres also made the 820×15 size.
It is always a great pleasure service cars like this and I would like to thank John Horsfield for bringing these excellent cars to us and for trusting them in our care.
