The third and final edition of the Silver Cloud, the Rolls Royce Silver Cloud III saw some of old trappings melt away with a lighter, livelier build and modern quad headlamps. However, the perennial grace that defined Rolls Royce for over half a century would still be front and center. The transmission was a 4-speed Hydramatic from General Motors, which Rolls Royce Ltd had licensed, but the engine was more enigmatic with the company refusing to release detailed performance information. Later they would intimate an improvement of perhaps 7%. Like with previous models, small changes would be made throughout its production run such as stainless steel wheel trims in 1963 and wider seats in 1964. Chassis and accompanying coachwork would remain much the same as the Silver Cloud II with a later exception being the Chinese Eye by Mulliner Park Ward, which was offered as a fixed, or drophead coupe with slanted headlights that gave the car a more aggressive demeanor.
