“The Silver Cloud III is a car which sets out to do a job, and does it to near perfection.” - Sporting Motorist magazine, 1964.

Launched in 1962, the Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud III and its Bentley S3 equivalent employed the 6.2-liter aluminum-alloy V8 engine introduced on the Silver Cloud II/Bentley S2 - though with larger carburetors, a new distributor and raised compression ratio - and came with a four-speed GM-derived automatic transmission as standard equipment. Most obvious among many changes from the preceding models were the adoption of a four-headlamp lighting arrangement, the absence of sidelights from the wing tops, and a slightly lower radiator shell. Inside there was revised accommodation with separate front seats and increased room for rear passengers. The last mainstream Rolls-Royce to employ a separate chassis, the Silver Cloud III remained in production until superseded by the unitary-construction Silver Shadow in late 1965.

In the long term ownership of the vendor, this Cloud III has been in dry storage for approximately five years. It is presented in lovely condition, but may require some mechanical reconditioning.
