Registration: DPT 333B
Chassis no: SGT115
Engine no: ST57G
Launched in 1962, the Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud III and its Bentley S3 equivalent employed the 6.2-litre V8 engine introduced on the 'Cloud II/S2 - though with larger carburettors, new distributor and raised compression ratio - and came with a four-speed GM-derived automatic transmission as standard equipment. Most obvious among many changes from the preceding models was 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 proved immensely successful both at home and abroad, remaining in production until the autumn of 1965.
DPT 333B is offered is arguably the most striking colour combination of Astral Blue over Shell grey. The paintwork is in excellent condition and it is clear from first sight that this is a well maintained example.
The engine is smooth and strong; the powerful 6.75 V8 will happily cruise at speeds in excess of our national speed limit. SGT115 has been used sparingly and just over 10,000 miles have been covered over the last 2 decades.
An excellent example, in ready to go condition, in our showroom and ready for viewing.
