The Rolls Royce Silver Cloud III was launched in 1963.
Along with new paired head light clusters the new model was 100 kgs / 220 lbs lighter than the Could II.
The aluminium 6.2 litre / 378 V8 was given ‘perhaps 7%’ more power, with an increase in compression allowed by better quality to fuel, to an estimated 220 hp which was delivered to the rear axle by a GM Hydramatic transmission that Rolls-Royce built under licence.
The price without extra’s but including UK car tax was £5,517 pounds for which one journalist said one got “a high standard of luxury for five with brisk performance and very good handling.
The 1964 Silver Cloud seen in these photographs outside Cotham Parish Church in Bristol last year was on wedding duty with the De Gournay Motor Company which operates appropriately out of Temple Cloud, Bristol.
