Drophead Coupe
Coachwork: Park Ward & Co.
Chassis #: LCSC79C
The Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud and the Bentley S series were announced in 1955 and utilized the separate chassis technology and clothed in Standard Steel coachwork. Under the bonnet was a 4.9-liter 6-cylinder engine of the Bentley R Type Continental offering an estimated 158 horsepower. The brakes were servo-assisted hydraulic drums, the transmission a four-speed automatic, and the suspension independent coils at the front with semi-elliptic springs at the rear.

The Series II cars was introduced in 1959 and brought about very little change. The change would come over the years, especially under the hood with a new light alloy 6.2-liter V8 engine, capable of over 110 mph and great improvements in torque. The braking system was improved and power steering was installed.

The Silver Cloud III and S3 was introduced in the fall of 1962. The biggest visual difference was the four headlamp arrangement, distinguishing them from the prior Rolls-Royce cars.

This Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud III wears coachwork by Mulliner Park Ward, Ltd. It has a black exterior over tan leather, highlighted by black piping and burr walnut accents. It has been in the Reggie Jackson collection for several years. It is a late production 1966 car fitted with optional air conditioning, and has recently been given a new canvas top.

In 2009, this car was offered for sale by Bonhams at the Exceptional Motorcars and Automobilia at the Quail Lodge in Carmel, CA. It was estimated to sell for $225,000 - 250,000, but failed to find a willing buyer capable of satisfying its reserve.
