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 card etc.

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.
