1963 'V' Rolls Royce Silver Cloud III, 1 owner from new, chassis number
SOW269, £60,000 restoration
An absolutely stunning, low
mileage example which was retained by the original owner from new,
ownership transferring to his widow upon his passing in 1982. The car has
covered just 81,000 miles from
new and is the best driving Cloud we have ever had. Together with the
vehicle we have the original Rolls Royce warranty scroll and letter from
Rolls Royce to the original owner, 1963 sales brochure and specification
Dry stored for over 30
years, the car was submitted for an MOT test and required only approx £200
worth of work to pass, mainly freeing off the brakes ! Since then, the
vehicle has had a complete re-commission at specialists with close to £60,000 spent,
all work being done to the highest possible standard and every component
receiving attention. We have all bills detailing the extensive work
carried out and photographic records of the restoration process. Every
component of the car has been removed, reconditioned and repainted and the
underside is every bit as good as the bodywork with the underside being
steam cleaned and wire brushed before repainting. With regard to the
bodywork, all trim and glass was removed, the body taken to bare metal and
the finish is to the highest possible standard, the body restoration alone
was circa £24,000, all original panels being retained. All glass and body
trim was re-fitted with new seals, all window seals are renewed etc.
Mechanically the car has
received a similar level of retention,
engine, gearbox, rear axle and braking system all completely overhauled.
On the road the car performs beautifully, again putting to shame every
other Cloud we have driven, they very often look much better than they
drive but this car is an exception, an absolute joy to be at the wheel and
everything working correctly. If you're looking for a "turn key" Silver
Cloud, this is the one.
The vehicle has
current MOT until July 2018. Offered for sale on behalf of the owner.
This is by far the best
Cloud we have seen and must certainly rank among the very best available.
Coupled with the provenance of essentially one owner from new which may
very well make this car a unique opportunity. One for the serious
collector or enthusiast. Offers not invited, if this car was at one of the
London dealerships it would be priced far higher than this.
