Whatever it was visionary automotive pioneers Charles Rolls and Henry Royce had set out to achieve when establishing their now famous partnership shortly after the turn of the 20th century, its doubtful they had any notion as to how magnificently their vision would be realized throughout the decades to come. And if the 1965 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud III was anything, it was a manifest affirmation of that reality. Like its immediate predecessor, the II series, the 1965 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud III soared along the motorways under the power of a 6.2-liter V-8 which propelled it to speeds greater than 100 miles per hour. In more ways than one, the 1965 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud III was a clear improvement over both the I and II Silver Cloud series, though cosmetically it adhered closely to the basic model.
Central to the differences between the Silver Cloud II and the Silver Cloud III is the difference of power. While both were powered by a strong V-8, the Silver Cloud III was over 200lbs lighter in weight and enjoyed superior acceleration, handling, and top speed because of it. Many, or rather most of the Silver Cloud III units manufactured were of the full-size, 4-door saloon style, but the body-on-frame construction, which had been a hallmark of the Silver Cloud models, left open the option of outsourced coach building. Thus, many of the Silver Cloud III units manufactured during its four-year run were of the drop head or fixed head coupe body types, as provided by renowned coachbuilders James Young, Park Ward, and Mulliner. Whatever your own Silver Cloud preferences, working with a respected dealer will be of tremendous help where ensuring a straightforward and sensible transaction is concerned.
