EXTERIOR – Finished in Velvet Green, our Silver Cloud III standard carriage is one of just 2044 produced. A high standard respray has taken place at some stage, possibly based on the file report recommended by Mr Brian Bilton-Sanderson F.I.M.I. Rolls Royce and Bentley Consultant in 1994. A couple of tiny blisters are however now showing behind the rear right hand side but, are barely noticeable. All Triplex Glass elements are fine with the exception of the rear screen which does now show signs of pealing. All chrome elements are in very good condition with a slight graze evident on the front ride side but does not offend. Simply put, the car presents beautifully well.
INTERIOR – The sumptuous green leather and matching carpets display a wonderful patina commensurate with the above stated mileage. A chrome and wood environment, that will simply never be industry repeated, is indeed a wonderful place to sit and wonder what it must have been like to be chauffeur driven. Everyone should try it – at least once!
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION – Engine No: SX416c The 6.2L V8 220hp unit fires up with ease. Once the fast idle cam on the carburettor has been set by the throttle pedal, the car finds its own level in accordance with how Rolls Royce intended. The under bonnet presentation is very good and once warm, the car shows steady oil pressure levelling just above the white zone. On driving, the car pulls well with a steady central reading temperature gauge. The four speed gearbox offers smooth change in both directions with no rear axle noise.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES – All four Radial Long Trail T/A 235/75 R15 tyres are almost new and are covered with the correct chrome plated wheel covers. The spare wheel has a new unused tyre. The car steers precise with good brake servo action to pull the car up well and in a straight line. The original Jack, tyre pump and full tool set are all present.
A majestic motor car that needs a new home to be enjoyed by those who can indulge.
