Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud III Continental Coupe

The Silver Cloud III, produced from late 1962 through October 1965, was the final Rolls-Royce model with separate body-and-chassis construction suitable for the finest custom coachbuilt bodywork. The rare alloy-bodied examples by Mulliner Park Ward remain among the most desirable of all postwar Rolls-Royce models. Out of total Silver Cloud III production of 2,809 chassis, 2,555 had the 123-inch wheelbase, and of those, just 328 were fitted with coachbuilt bodies.

This car was auctioned off by RM Auctions in January of 2011 at the Arizona Biltmore Resort & Spa, Phoenix, Arizona.

220 hp, 6,230 cc V-8 engine, dual SU carburetors, four-speed automatic gearbox, independent front suspension with coil springs, live rear axle with semi-elliptic leaf springs, and four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes. Wheelbase: 123"
