One of Eight 1965 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud III Touring Limousine by James Young

Chassis LCDL81 is one of 8 left-drive Long Wheelbase Cloud IIIs fitted with James Young's superb Touring Limousine Coachwork, known by its design number "SCT100." Sometimes referred to as the "Baby Phantom" for its resemblance to the James Young bodied Phantom V, it is a masterclass of proportion and elegance. The SCT100 is a beautiful design, notable for its "turtleback" semi-fastback boot and sweeping fender lines. According to notes in Lawrence Dalton's book Rolls Royce: The Elegance Continues, chassis LCDL81 was displayed at the 1964 Paris Salon and has several fascinating details. Notable features of this car include a division window, integrated rear footrests, a spectacular wood rear fascia housing tray tables, a spare fuel gauge (curiously), and ventilation controls. Of particular interest is the rear sunroof panel, which slides forward over the driver's compartment and affords rear passengers a dose of fresh air and sunshine. Should the weather be less than ideal, it is equipped with air conditioning with integrated, upholstered outlets in the rear C-pillars.

Finished in two-tone burgundy over black with beige leather upholstery, this Cloud III is offered in very good condition overall, having come from an extensive collection of Rolls-Royce and Bentley automobiles. Mechanically strong, it runs and drives wonderfully. As one of only eight left-drive SCT100 Cloud IIIs extant, it is undoubtedly a highly collectible and significant motorcar. This is a very elegant, low-production Silver Cloud III beautifully representing the elegant and classic Rolls-Royce Motor Car with custom coachwork by James Young.
