Rolls Royce introduced the Silver Cloud model in April of 1955. It followed the production run of the Silver Dawn, and the relocation of manufacturing to Crewe. The new model was to be somewhat larger, substantially roomier, just as nimble and no less speedy. In addition, provisions were added for conveniences such as power assisted steering, automatic transmission and improved ventilation. Initially, 'sufficient' power came from a staid six-cylinder engine.

This Silver Cloud III is considered the prelude to the Silver Shadow models of the mid-1960s. It featured increased compression, for additional power allowing for options such as air conditioning. It carried a lower radiator and four headlights. This example carries drophead coachwork by H.J. Mulliner.
