STORY

The Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud III was a luxury automobile produced by Rolls-Royce Limited from 1962 to 1966.

The Silver Cloud III was the successor to the Silver Cloud II and part of the Silver Cloud series from Rolls-Royce. The series began in 1955 with the Silver Cloud I.

The Silver Cloud III was equipped with a 6.2-liter V8 engine that offered more power and torque compared to its predecessor.

Improved brakes and hydraulic suspension contributed to a more comfortable ride.

The design of the Silver Cloud III was characterized by classic elegance, typical of Rolls-Royce vehicles.

The body of the car was manufactured by various coachbuilding companies, including HJ Mulliner Park Ward, James Young, and others.

In total, about 2,044 units were produced during this time, making the Silver Cloud III a relatively rare and sought-after model.

The interior of the Silver Cloud III was opulent and offered the utmost luxury.

The interior was designed according to the individual wishes of the customers, making each car unique.

The Silver Cloud III represented the highest level of craftsmanship and luxury that Rolls-Royce had to offer in the 1960s. Today, well-preserved examples of the Silver Cloud III are highly prized at auctions and in private collections.

PERSONAL STORY

Even the standard equipment of a Rolls Royce is breathtaking. But this example was equipped with a sunroof and altimeter from the factory. The latter is probably more of a nice gimmick.

The sunroof gives this British convertible flair, as almost the entire roof opens.
