Gateway Classic Cars of Atlanta is proud to offer this 1963
Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud III. This 1963 Rolls after arriving from
California had a body restoration here in Georgia. The engine and
transmission were also rebuilt with just 40 miles since completion.
The Silver Cloud series marked a significant step for Rolls Royce
when it was introduced in April of 1955. Rolls Royce was
rationalizing their production line as the days of supplying bare
chassis to coachbuilders were winding down and standard showroom
models were becoming ever more popular. The standardization of
production allowed Rolls Royce to produce cars in greater numbers
than ever before, though critically, while still maintaining the
same level of quality and engineering excellence that was expected
of them. The Silver Cloud was their first "mass produced" major
commercial success and in the 60 years since its introduction, has
become an icon of luxury motoring. Initially the Silver Cloud was
fitted with a traditional iron block inline six-cylinder engine.
But even before the Silver Cloud reached production, Rolls Royce
engineers were hard at work designing an engine that would carry
them through the next decade, and beyond. After several proposals
such as a V12 and even an inline eight, engineers settled on a V8
layout that would be compact enough yet provide superior output to
the current six-cylinder. This was a thoroughly advanced engine
that was cast in alloy with wet liners, and wore the carburetors in
the center of the "vee" to keep the dimensions as compact as
possible. Development of this 6.2 litre unit wasn't completed until
after Silver Cloud production was well underway, but in 1959 it was
introduced in that car which became known as the Silver Cloud II.
The Silver Cloud II was visually very similar to the outgoing Cloud
I, with only very minor cosmetic changes taking place. The big
changes lay under the bodywork where the V8 was carefully wedged
into place and several enhancements made to the chassis to improve
handling, ride, and the ability to cope with the additional power.
Once optional equipment, power steering became standard fitment.
Options Include: Air Conditioning, Power steering, Power brakes,
leather interior, AM Radio, Power Windows, Hub Caps, and Wide White
Wall Tires. This 1963 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud III is for sale by
