The Silver Cloud III offered here, chassis LSEV 175, was built to US specifications and equipped from the Crewe factory with optional power windows, air-conditioning, and a radio with electric aerial. Delivered to its first owner in Tampa, Florida, on October 16, 1963, this Rolls-Royce possesses a well-documented history and has traveled relatively few miles since a superior cosmetic restoration was carried out.

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 drives and presents as luxuriously 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.

Consistently maintained, well-presented, and accompanied by documents from the Rolls-Royce Owners’ Club, it 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.
