Harry's Thoughts

I love long wheelbase Silver Clouds. And the SCIII is the ultimate of this series.

THE ESSENTIALS

See inspection report, full photos, videos and more at classicpromenade.com. Inspection and photos performed by independent 3rd parties. 

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 owner’s 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 harry@classicpromenade.com.

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 remodeled, the weight reduced by a little over 100 kg (220 lb) and improvements made to the engine which included fitting 2-inch (51 mm) SU carburetors in place of the ​1 34 inch units used on the Series II Silver Cloud.   The compression ratio was increased to 9:1, reflecting the higher octane levels of premium fuel in major markets,  although the option of a lower 8:1 compression ratio was still offered in markets where non-availability of higher octane fuels might be an issue.  Rolls-Royce, as before, refused to disclose overall engine power output, but indicated that there had been an improvement of "perhaps 7%".   Increased power and weight reduction boosted speed and performance slightly. The engine now included a nitride hardened crankshaft to reflect the extra power being generated and in response to reports of broken crankshafts in the earlier V8 Silver Clouds.  The transmission was a GM Hydramatic which Rolls-Royce used under license.  The headlights were grouped in a four-headlamp layout subsequently continued in the later Silver Shadow. Other external changes included a slightly increased slope of the bonnet to correspond with a 1 12 inches (3.8 cm) reduction in radiator grille height.
