  • The Final Variant Of The Silver Cloud

The Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud was released in 1955 with a newly restyled design that departed heavily from the pre-war influenced Silver Dawn that it was replacing. Construction of the new Silver Cloud was body-on-frame which allowed the car to be fitted with special coach-built bodies, although most examples were fitted with the standard Pressed Steel Company body shell. These Series 1 cars were fitted with a 4.9-liter inline six-cylinder which would eventually be upgraded to a 6.2 liter V8 with the introduction of the Silver Cloud II in 1959. The Series II cars were largely unchanged cosmetically and it wouldn't be till 1963 and the introduction of the Silver Cloud III that any real visible changes occurred.

First displayed at the Paris Salon in October 1962, the newly restyled Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud III featured quad headlamps, increased bonnet slope, and a remodeled interior. Although the same 6.2-liter V8 engine was used, the car received uprated carburetors for what Roll-Royce deemed as “perhaps a 7% increase in engine output”. Shifting was accomplished through a GM Hydramatic, which Roll-Royce used under a licensing agreement. Standard body styles for the new Silver Cloud III included a 4-door saloon, 2-door coupe, and a 2-door convertible. In keeping with tradition, Rolls still provided bare chassis to be utilized by coachbuilders with some of the more popular versions coming from James Young and H.J. Mulliner & Co. There was also a long-wheelbase version available, with around 206 produced. With the exception of some minor updates, the Silver Cloud III remained largely unchanged during its production run of 1963-1966. A total of 2,044 factory bodied Silver Cloud IIIs were produced as well as 328 chassis which were sent off to coach-builders. The Silver Cloud III would see the end of its production in late 1966 when it was replaced by redesigned Silver Shadow.

The example on offer here, chassis number LSDW151 and engine number SW75D, is a 1963 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud III. It is finished in a lovely 2-tone blue exterior and features a very nice original interior trimmed in blue leather. The exterior of the car has recently received a cosmetic restoration and remains in excellent condition while the interior was left untouched. Early history on this example is unknown but the car was purchased by the previous owner in 2007 from Gullwing MotorCars in New York. At the time of purchase, it appears that the car was finished in an all-black exterior color. The previous owner, who lived in Washington DC, maintained the car thoroughly at EuroMotorcars in Rockville, Maryland and a large stack of service receipts accompany the car. It appears that the current owner purchased the car around 2014. During his ownership, the car was painted from black to the chambering 2-tone blue that it wears today. The current owned serviced the car regularly, drove it sparingly, and stored it properly. As it sits today, this car has very few needs and is a lovely example with a charming original interior.

Included with the sale of this car is the factory spare, a nice original tool kit and jack, owners manual, as well as available service documents.
