SFU261' was completed in 1964, only 54 Silver Cloud III’s carried the distinctive 'Flying Spur' bodywork; more officially known as Mulliner Park Ward design No.2042, with just 35 RHD examples. Chassis SFU261 was supplied new via Jack Barclays Ltd of London to its first owner, Cooper Investments Limited of West Bromwich, on the 17th of April 1964 and was originally registered ‘CLN 310B’. Specified from the factory with electric windows to all doors, Dunlop tubeless tyres, luggage straps, and Hirschmann electric aerial, the Rolls-Royces Mulliner coachwork was finished in striking two-tone paintwork of Midnight Blue over Steel Blue with complementary Blue leather upholstery. Retained in first ownership for only a short period, thereafter, the Rolls-Royce is known to have passed into the hands of Warwick Woolen & Co of London in 1965, before Derek Wheeler Esq of Warren Street, W1, London in 1970 and subsequently Clark Brothers Ltd of Wolverhampton later in the 1970s.

Offered for sale in excellent condition throughout, retaining all its original small and large tools, exceptional interior trim and very pleasing body and paintwork. Purchased by the last owner in 2013, SFU261 has been maintained to an extremely high standard, with a full engine overhaul, heads overhauled, new dynamo, and numerous other new parts supplied in the overhaul. The brakes (including handbrake), steering, and suspension were all refurbished. This example is offered with a large history file that contains the RREC Chassis Card records, original Handbook, extensive previous invoices and receipts, work cards from specialists P. J. Evans during the 1970s, previous purchase invoices and correspondence, and other sundry paperwork. Sports This rare Cloud III 'Flying Spur' is arguably the most elegant of the coachbuilt Silver Clouds and would make a great addition to any marque collection.
