20,870 ORIGINAL MILES!
This astonishing well preserved example of this deservedly popular classic came to us from the estate of the original owner, an affluent Southern California connoisseur as indicated by its remarkably complete history file. We supplied it to its subsequent owners in 2004 at 18,475 miles and today the odometer reading is just 20,870 miles.
Finished in Sand Iridescent with Beige Connolly hides, aside from a concours quality refinish to the faded but never damaged exterior its cosmetics have never been restored.
The interior hides, carpets, headliner and woods are all beautifully preserved and patinaed and should be carefully preserved. The original optional lambswool carpets, AM-FM-SW Blaupunkt radio and air-conditioning as shown on the included factory record are all in fine condition.
Before delivery to its second owner, the braking system was overhauled, the springs rebuilt and replaced as necessary to restore the correct standing height and shock absorbers travel and new spring gaiters were fitted. The original tires still held air but were deemed unsafe for use and were replaced with correct 820 x 15 whitewalls. The original spark plugs were changed, the carburetor diaphragms were replaced and the valley cover gasket was resealed. The automobile was superbly maintained while in their hands and we were delighted to be presented with the opportunity to reacquire it.
The mechanical aspects of the automobile have been thoroughly prepared in our workshops and the performance is virtually as it was when new. The documentation history is impressive and will become the property of the next keeper.
We believe this to be by far finest original Silver Cloud III available anywhere in the world regardless of price.
