1964 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud III Sedan The Final Generation Silver CloudChassis # LSFU1036230 CC OGV V-8 Engine4-speed Automatic Transmission The History of the Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud III: The Silver Cloud II was introduced in October 1962. The most noticeable difference from earlier Clouds were the addition of quad headlights, a more subtle lowered hood and front fender lines. Demand continued unabated for what was, in world terms, outdated technology. By the time Silver Cloud III production ceased in 1966, 2,860 had been delivered, the last few being coach-built cars. Production of the standard sedans had ended in 1965. The History of this Car: This Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud III arrived in New York on April 2, 1964. It was delivered to its first owner, Ms. Betty Yaeger of Westport, CT on June 4, 1964. It was built to left-hand drive North American specifications, including factory air conditioning, power windows and power steering – in essence, every option available in 1964. When the third owner acquired the car in 1990, it had accumulated only 18,000 miles. The paint and interior were still like new.

The crankshaft was polished and balanced, and the valves were given a multi-angle competition resurfacing. The cylinders were honed before reassembly The cooling system was completely overhauled, with new water pump, thermostat, and hoses. The original oil pump was rebuilt with new components. The reassembled engine was painted and carefully detailed, and all external ancillaries – carburetors, power steering and heater – were rebuilt. The transmission was completely refurbished, as the braking system – wheel cylinders, master cylinder and brake lines. Chassis refurbishment included the replacement of shock absorbers and front coil springs, particularly susceptible to wear on Silver Cloud cars. While the engine and transmission were out a general reconditioning of the car was undertaken. The interior and trim were removed, and the entire body stripped to the bare metal. Epoxy primers and sealer were applied, followed by urethane ...
