HISTORY OF THE ROLLS-ROYCE SILVER CLOUD III
Considered the Silver Cloud series's pinnacle, the Silver Cloud III was unveiled in Paris during fall 1962. The most prominent changes were the inclusion of a four-headlamp layout. Additionally, the radiator grill was shortened, and the bonnet was given a slightly increased slope. An improved interior contributed to the 220lb loss of weight over the Silver Cloud II. The Crewe engineers were able to increase the power to weight ratio by 7% due to an increase in both the compression ratio and the carburetors' size. The Silver Cloud III was the last Rolls-Royce model produced using body-on-frame construction, and the last example was finished by hand at the Crewe factory in 1966. Only 2,044 Silver Cloud III’s were built during the short three-year production run, which was the lowest of all the Silver Cloud Series. The Silver Cloud's quality and craftsmanship helped elevate it from every other car ever built and showed the world how good Rolls-Royce was at producing an artistic masterpiece.
