“The Silver Cloud III is a car which sets out to do a job and does it to near perfection. Conservative in approach to a degree… [it] impresses uniquely by its refinement and quality of construction. Furthermore – and this is what most interested us – it is a machine that responds as much to the sporting driver as to the kid-gloved chauffeur.”
—Sporting Motorist magazine, 1964

Unveiled in 1962, the Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud III employs a 6.2-liter V8 engine, and a four-speed General Motors-derived automatic transmission.

Among many upgrades from preceding models is the vehicle’s four-headlamp lighting, an absence of sidelights from the wing tops, and a lower radiator shell, as well as a 15% increase in power, brought about by a higher compression ratio and larger SU carburetors. The interior has separate front seats and increased room in the rear compartment for passengers.

The last mainstream Rolls-Royce to employ a separate chassis, the Silver Cloud III was immensely successful in the United Kingdom and abroad, remaining in production until autumn of 1965. Less than 3,000 were made.

Chassis number/VIN: Chassis numbers were used for motor cars produced between 1955 and 1980. A chassis number comprises a combination of between 4 and 10 letters and numbers. Beginning in 1980, the international 17 character VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) was used.
