Beschreibung

This sumptuous Silver Cloud III convertible, one of 49 produced with left-hand drive, was first owned by the proprietor of a prominent menswear store chain. Originally delivered in Europe, the car was kept in Northern California after its first year of ownership.

The Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud dates to 1955, with the first series of the new 123-inch wheelbase models utilizing a traditional Rolls-Royce six-cylinder engine. V-8 power arrived in 1959 with the Silver Cloud II, which in turn was superseded by the mildly updated Silver Cloud III during 1962.

Rolls-Royce carried over the aluminum 6.2L V-8 engine first seen in the Silver Cloud II for the Silver Cloud III. However, the fitting of twin SU carburetors to the newer model's engine boosted output to approximately 220 horsepower. (R-R routinely did not advertise horsepower ratings.)

The Silver Cloud III enjoyed relatively stellar success for a Rolls-Royce line—total production between 1962 and 196
