This is a rare and beautiful example of the elegant 1964 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud III long wheelbase with division built by H.J. Mulliner, Park Ward. This is one of only 84 RHD with division examples built on the SCIII chassis through its total production run. This example has been in the US for at least the past 33 years and features the incredibly rare chrome trim molding on the front fenders ending into the front doors.
Though the earliest years of this Silver Cloud is not known, it was registered with the RROC as being owned by Brian Burgess in Valencia, PA from 1987 until 2001. It was owned by two other RROC club members, Charles Hostetler and John Tutini. By 2010 it was acquired by its present owner and RROC club member in Westerville, OH.
The livery is in a classic two-tone gray-blue over metallic midnight blue with contrasting red coachstripes and spectacular chrome throughout. The paint is older but it is still quite beautiful with spectacular shine and luster. The paint is in very nice condition only minor imperfections. The paint metering from the inspection proves that the body is free from filler and is in very good condition. The inspector recommends further polishing to make it even more stunning. The chrome trim moldings look sharp and give it a flair that is rarely ever seen (I don't recall ever seeing this option before).
We love the look of the extra long rear passenger doors after H.J. Mulliner, Park Ward added the additional four inches to its length. While subtle in appearance, the long wheelbase Silver Clouds have a more formal and elegant appearance. The wheel covers are painted in the dark blue and pinstriped correctly. Actually, all the chrome appears in very nice condition.
The interior is quite original in its Blue Leather complimented with the gray headliner and blue Wilton wool carpeting. It is in very good condition for its age. There are some areas where the leather dye has worn away. Overall, it has a nice patina and shows well as an original survivor. The burled walnut veneer is beautiful with some minor water staining in the rear section near the door jams. The wood veneer in the rear passenger compartment is stunning and features a clock and other accessories. The carpeting is showing some soiling, and according to the inspector, should be deep cleaned or replaced.
The front and rear air conditioning are said to work well and every detail of the car functions well. This Silver Cloud III flew through our 158-point inspection with ease and the report is available for your review.
The engine compartment is in very nice condition today, with only a slight amount of use evident. It would compete today very well in the RROC Touring Class. The trunk has some of the small and large tools, pump, jack and spare. It comes complete with its owners manual, historical records, shop manuals and other documentation. CCL29 comes complete with its original UK license plates.
This Rolls is located in Columbus, OH. For more information and details, call, text or email Harry Clark at 1.602.245.7200 or [email protected]
