In 1963 the third iteration of the classic Silver Cloud was introduced. With slightly altered exterior dimensions and a remodelled interior, Rolls Royce managed to shave over 100 KG off its total weight. Other improvements to the engine were made, including fitting 2-inch (51 mm) SU carburettors in place of the 1¾ inch units used on the Series II Silver Cloud. Rolls Royce indicated there had been a nearly 7% improvement to the engines overall power output. Owing to its updated looks and improved mechanicals, Cloud IIIs are already widely considered the most desirable and valuable variant within Cloud production.

The introduction of the Cloud III also finally saw Continentals offered for the first time as a Rolls-Royce instead of just Bentley S-Series cars. 5 standard body-styles were offered, the Flying Spur, the Mulliner Park Ward Drophead and Coupe, the James Young Sports Saloon and the James Young 2-door. Just 52 Cloud III Flying Spurs were ever built making them one of the rarest of all Continentals.

As before, the Continental variant came with higher compression for better performance, a shorter radiator profile, upgraded braking, a higher rear axle ratio and of course lightweight aluminium coachwork. This makes for a truly impressive grand tourer which is not only comfortable but effortless fast, even today, effortless to drive and incredibly useable and being a 4 door just adds to its practicality.

The car we proudly present to you today is a particularly stunning example of one of Rolls-Royce’s finest hours presented with gleaming Masons Black coachwork over Beige Vaumol leather interior. It was supplied new in September 1965, making it one of the last Cloud III Continentals built. The Rolls has been tastefully equipped with several extra creature comforts including modern air-conditioning, further enhancing the car’s useability, as well as rear picnic tables, finished in walnut with a chrome bezel. It is accompanied by wonderful documentation, including invoices for the extensive restoration works and servicing carried out through the years.

Truly the ultimate gentleman’s express of the 1960s, this Silver Cloud III Flying Spur is just waiting to consume continents and waft down to the Cote D’Azur or even swan about the West End. This is truly among the finest examples extant of one of the rarest Rolls-Royces ever built and one which represents astonishing value for money, considering its rarity, beauty and driveability.
