Regarding This Vehicle

1965 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud III Saloon

Beautifully kept 63,000 mile example fitted in factory two-tone combination!  This special order Park Ward example is nicely equipped with air conditioning, electric window lifts, AM/FM/8-track player with power antenna, outside mirrors, front badge bar, and lambskin interior rugs!  A super example that remains very original with numbers matching drivetrain and excellent looks inside and out!

Replacing the important but not tremendously popular Silver Dawn in 1955 was the Silver Cloud, offering body-on-frame construction, permitting both the typical Pressed Steel Company bodies but also alternate configurations. In its sophomore year, it introduced power steering and air conditioning to the Rolls-Royce line for the first time. It was successful but by 1959 Rolls-Royce sought to further separate itself from the competition and introduced a new 6.2L V8 to replace the old 4.9L Inline 6. This car became the Silver Cloud II and was equally successful over its three year run, where power steering became standard and power windows found their way onto the option list. But the ultimate Silver Cloud was released in 1963; featuring a 220 lb. lighter body with new quad headlights, upgraded 2” SU carburetors replacing the previous 1¾” units, and 9:1 compression. The Silver Cloud III became one of the best high speed luxury saloons of the 1960’s. Seeing as the newest Silver Cloud is now over 50 years old possessing more of earth’s natural resources than most modern luxury sedans, along with arguably much more class, they should be the staple in any Rolls-Royce collection for its combination of elegant styling with modern drivability.

We are pleased to offer this 1965 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud III finished in factory ordered Shell Grey and Burgundy two-tone combination over Beige Leather interior, Fawn headliner and Cumberland Stone carpets! Fitted with its original, number matching 6.2L V8 engine with Hydramatic automatic transmission and 3.50:1 rear axle, it continues to start, run, and drive simply wonderfully! Optioned from the factory with Rolls Royce Electric Windows, Dunlop white-sided tubeless tyres (now Cooper 4-ply poly L78-15), plain Sundyn window glass, AM/FM/8-track player with electric aerial(antenna), mirror to drivers vent frame, lambskin rugs in Cumberland Stone, front badge bar, and initials to rear doors reading D.J.R. in capitals.  It is also fitted with air conditioning which continues to work wonderfully.

It was originally ordered new by Mr. D.J. Rosenheim on May 8th 1964, a plastics manufacturer based in New Jersey, when he was 52 years of age.  Mr. Rosenheim was a long time classic car collector with as many as 1,000 cars gracing his stable throughout his lifetime.  This particular Rolls Royce traded owners just a handful of times over the past 50 years.  It made its way to Atlanta by 1975 while in the hands of Dr. Walker Moore, then out to the plains of Oklahoma and back to Hamden, Connecticut most recently since 2002. With just 63,226 miles showing on the odometer, it is safe to say it has been pampered over the years! The exterior paint has been professionally refinished, while the chrome and interior upholstery remain largely original. The upper door wood trim has been recently refinished, and the leathers have been lightly re-dyed to restore their original color. Overall, we would rate the car’s appearance as ‘very good’ preserving a striking presentation both inside and out. It is complete with small tool set (missing two items), complete large tool set with flashlight, spare tire, all factory Triplex XXX glass, Marston Excelsior radiator, original carburetors, Lucas components, lambskin rugs, and Schoellkopf/Inskip card & chassis/build sheet copies provided courtesy of the Rolls Royce Foundation. It also retains all original body tags and proper chassis plates. Please call with questions or discuss an opportunity to view in person. Offers welcome.
