1965 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud III Continental Flying Spur
By HJ Mulliner Park Ward.
The sales literature of the day, distributed by the Conduit Street offices of Rolls-Royce in Mayfair, advises the prospective buyer that this coachbuilt design is "for the owner who requires a car of particular distinction". True, it was then and remains so today. This is a car of great presence.
Ordered from the HR Owen showroom in Berkeley Street, in December 1963, the customers instructions were passed to the coachbuilders, HJ Mulliner Park Ward. Not until 1965 was the new owner presented with his car.
The fascinating file of documents which accompanies the car records CSC43B at home with the original owner until 1978.
There follows a carefully preserved and comprehensive service record, by way of invoices, mostly from one of the most highly respected marque specialists, up to the present day.
The original carefully selected colour scheme has been retained. Astral Blue highlights the elegant panelwork, while the Grey leather upholstery, which unusually includes a hide headlining, is supple and luxurious.
Here is a stylish example of a rare individually crafted car. Representing the very pinnacle of motoring excellence from a time when elegance was a design priority.
Beautifully presented and ready to be enjoyed.
