For many, the Silver Cloud series (I, II, III) represents the apogee of hand-built coach work in the post-World War II era.
The car you see is a 1963 Rolls Royce Standard Saloon which was completed in February 1962 and delivered in California to the famous but now departed Peter Satori dealership in Pasadena.
The car has 80,000 original miles and has had a selective frame-on restoration, still running smoothly with its original (unrebuilt) engine and transmission in factory correct Mason’s Black with Red Connolly hides and French walnut wood dash and trim.
Of the Cloud series, the Silver Cloud III shown here has the famous Rolls Royce V-8 engine introduced in 1961 and used continuously with updates in all Rolls Royce vehicles for over 40 years.
Between 1962 and 1965, 2,044 of these vehicles were built at a rate of approximately 500 annually. Fifty plus years later, this car is one of approximately 100 left hand drive SC IIIs remaining in America in superb cosmetic and running order.
