Finished in classic and desired Masons Black with beautiful Light Tan leather interior surrounded by magnificent Walnut woodwork throughout. This incredible motorcar was acquired from the executor of the estate for Jack Lemmon. Mr. Lemmon owned this car for nearly 40 years and serviced it regularly at Beverly Hills Rolls-Royce. A beautiful restoration has been performed and this car is now ready to be shown or driven. An original California car with only 39,000 miles and this provenance make this one of the best investments in a Rolls-Royce one could hope for. We have had many examples over the years and this is by far the finest, highest quality example to date. For all of you who are not familiar, Rolls-Royce no longer exists as it had for nearly 100 years. It is now owned by BMW and no longer being built in Crewe, England and is now being practically being mass produced with many German parts. The care, quality and craftsmanship that went into building this great marquise is far superior to what they are building today. We are proud to offer this incredible Silver Cloud III to the most astute collector, investor or enthusiast who understands and appreciates the investment potential of this great marquee.

Wheelbase: 123″ – From the final year of Silver Cloud production – Offered from the second owner, who acquired the car in 1980 – Extensively restored and with desirable air conditioning Introduced in 1955, the Silver Cloud progressed through continuous development to the Silver Cloud II in 1959 and then finally Silver Cloud III. Introduced toward the end of 1962, the Silver Cloud III heralded mainly cosmetic changes, with the most notable being a new four-headlamp arrangement. Mechanically, it was claimed that the 6.2-liter alloy V-8 now produced eight percent more power than before, resulting in an output increase to almost 220 bhp. The Silver Cloud III sold quite well, with 2,376 examples produced from late 1962 until October 1965, when the Silver Shadow debuted.
