We are pleased to offer for sale this fantastic and very rare Rolls Royce Silver Cloud 111 by James Young.
‘Launched in 1962, the Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud III and its Bentley S3 equivalent employed the 6.2 litre aluminium-alloy, V8 engine first introduced in the Silver Cloud II although with larger carburettors, new distributor and raised compression ratio. It also came with a four-speed GM derived automatic gearbox as standard equipment. Most obvious among many changes from the preceding models were the adoption of four headlamp lighting, the absence of sidelights from the wing tops and a slightly lower radiator shell. Inside there was improved accommodation with separate front seats and increased room for rear passengers. Notable as the last mainstream Rolls-Royce to employ a separate chassis, the Silver Cloud III remained in production until superseded by the unitary-construction Silver Shadow in late 1965.’
This Rolls-Royce is one of only 13 – SCV100 bodied examples produced and presents with flawless paint, incredibly good brightwork and an interior which shows a that perfect patina.
The coachbuilder for this Rolls-Royce was James Young Ltd and subsequently has magnificent lines, exquisite detailing in the love heart door handles and is finished in Regal Red with a Grey Leather interior.
