1963 ROLLS ROYCE SILVER CLOUD III - 10,092 MILES SHOWING
This example presents in brilliant white with blue leather interior trim.
Delivered new by York Motors of William Street Sydney.
This beautifully restored pristine white 1963 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud III is an exceptional vehicle.
You won't find a car like this anywhere else. The 6.2 L V8 engine has been reconditioned by McDermott's - the Rolls-Royce Specialist in Victoria and is a joy to drive. It has had a new leather interior, new carpets, new headlining with the woodwork restored to perfection.
The Silver Cloud III was first displayed to the public at the Paris Salon at the beginning of October 1962 but along with the Bentley S3 the cars were displayed on a specialist coachwork stand as if the modifications were to the special order of a particular customer.
External dimensions were slightly altered, the interior remodelled, the weight reduced by a little over 100 kg and improvements made to the engine which included fitting 2-inch (51 mm) SU carburettors in place of the 1+3⁄4 inch units used on the Series II Silver Cloud.
Another Rolls Royce from our customer who is retiring from the wedding car hire business, this example is affectionately named "Mary"
Powered by a 6.2 Litre V8 engine, it produced when new 149Kw and delivered that power to the rear wheels very quietly via a 4 speed automatic transmission. Performance claimed at the time was 0-100kph in 12.1 secs and a top speed near 185kph.
Performance wasn't Rolls Royce's focus, but more to the point , how graciously you could proceed.
A perfect car to use for the hire business or just enjoy as a timeless classic with loads of style and comfort.
Available to admire on our state of the art showroom floor in Adelaide.
