The Silver Cloud III offered here, chassis LSEV175, was built to US specifications and equipped from the Crewe factory with optional power windows, air-conditioning, and a radio with an electric aerial. Delivered to its first owner in Tampa, Florida, on October 16, 1963, this Rolls-Royce possesses a well-documented history. It has traveled relatively few miles since a beautiful cosmetic restoration was carried out a few years before the consignor acquired it in 2016.

Finished in its original factory color, Mason’s Black, with a pale gray coachline, and now with an elegant black leather interior and refinished burled-wood veneer trim, the result is a Silver Cloud III that presents as luxurious as ever. Special features include burled walnut twin picnic trays for rear passengers, a sliding veneered map tray for driver and front passenger, a lockable glove box, and an open cubby box within easy reach of the driver.

Well-presented and accompanied by documents from the Rolls-Royce Owners’ Club, this Silver Cloud will be welcomed into many car clubs, as well as a variety of concours and tour events. It’s a fine, honest example of one of the very best models Rolls-Royce ever produced, in beautiful condition, desirably optioned, and ready for its fortunate new owner.
