Considered the pinnacle of the Silver Cloud series, the Silver Cloud III was unveiled in Paris during fall 1962. The most prominent changes were the inclusion of a four-headlamp layout. Additionally, the radiator grill was shortened, and the bonnet was given a slightly increased slope. An improved interior contributed to the 220lb loss of weight over the Silver Cloud II. The Crewe engineers were able to increase the power to weight ratio by 7% due to an increase in both the compression ratio and the size of the carburetors. The Silver Cloud III was the last Rolls-Royce model produced using body-on-frame construction, and the last example was finished by hand at the Crewe factory in 1966. Only 2,044 Silver Cloud III’s were built during the short three-year production run, which was the lowest of all the Silver Cloud Series. The Silver Cloud's quality and craftsmanship helped elevate it from every other car ever built and showed the world how good Rolls-Royce was at producing an artistic masterpiece.
For all of you who are not familiar, Rolls-Royce no longer exists as it has for the past hundred years; it is now owned by BMW, and models are mass-produced. The days of cars being handcrafted by artisans in Crewe are now just a fond memory. This particular car was constructed during a time when Rolls-Royce was building the world’s finest motorcars with care and craftsmanship evident in every detail, and we are proud to offer it to the most astute collector, investor, or enthusiast who appreciates the hand-assembled quality that helped to make Rolls-Royce one of the most prestigious motorcars ever constructed.
