1965 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud III, This is a lovely,
well-maintained car in honest and original condition.
Two southern California owners from new. The odometer reads just 53,996 genuine miles from new of which 42 K. was driven in-between 1965 though 1969 and only 12k. miles from 1969 to present, by its last owner. The body is finished in a elegant silver sand over sable with original Connelly leather biscuit/bone interior. It is pleasingly attractive and presentable, though it is showing signs of use and has a couple of small dings and a few scratches, but zero rust. Which is nothing that detracts from its good looks. Realistically it could use a repaint which in turn will rocket the $ value of this car. The exterior chrome is in very nice order, original and straight. The prominent stainless radiator shell is also in very good condition.
The best part of the Silver Cloud experience is the sumptuous interior. This car’s original biscuit/bone leather has never been re-dyed and is very supple, yes it needs Connelly dying which we have not completed yet to show its originality. (Some buyers may want original un dyed leather which suits this type of car so well.) The original carpeting appears to be in very good order. The extensive wood trim is totally original and is nicely presented with an honest, moderate patina. It is equipped with electric windows, power steering, power brakes, factory air conditioning and an AM/FM stereo.
The Cloud III is the most desirable of the Silver Cloud series. The big SmoothV8 of the Cloud III breaths through large 2” S.U. carburetors and the GM-derived transmission is smooth and very durable. vin # LSGT 377
