1965 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud III
The Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud was the core model of the Rolls-Royce Motor Cars range from April 1955 until March 1966. It replaced the Silver Dawn and was. in turn. replaced by the Silver Shadow. The J. P. Blatchley design was a major change from the pre-war models and the highly derivative Silver Dawn. As part of a range rationalization the Bentley S1 is very similar. apart from its radiator grille.
The Silver Cloud III arrived in 1963. External dimensions were slightly tweaked. the interior remodeled. the weight reduced by a little over 100 kg (220 lb) and improvements made to the engine which included fitting 2-inch (51 mm) SU carburetors in place of the 1¾ inch units used on the Series II Silver Cloud. The compression ratio was increased to 9:1. reflecting the higher octane levels of premium fuel in major markets. although the option of a lower 8:1 compression ratio was still offered in markets where non-availability of higher octane fuels might be an issue. Rolls-Royce. as before. refused to disclose overall engine power output. but indicated that there had been an improvement of "perhaps 7%". Increased power and weight reduction boosted speed and performance slightly. The engine now included a nitride hardened crankshaft to reflect the extra power being generated and in response to reports of broken crankshafts in the earlier V8 Silver Clouds. The transmission was a GM Hydramatic which Rolls-Royce used under license.
Our 1965 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud III is a fantastic example of an iconic legacy. Black and chrome exterior houses a regal very light beige and wood grain print interior. The panel fit of the dash is extraordinary and very imposing upon the driver. The overall décor of this vehicle represents a firm reminder that you are riding upon a Silver Cloud. The mechanical running condition of this vehicle is stunning though not surprising considering that the previous owner was a very proud enthusiast.
Actual Mileage Unknown.
