It appears to be a 1962 to 1965 Silver Cloud III.

I think Phantom 6, not Cloud - the scale of the front is too big compared to the foglight.

The thumb image shows it is a Cloud III. You can see the badge on the lower boot lid edge, left hand side. Phantoms never carried any badges.

OK - agree SC3. What I was trying to do was use the front proportions to distinguish SC3 from Phantom, with the gap from top of foglight to headlights as a guide, but this does not seem to work reliably. So 2 different questions:
- do the overriders differ consistently - eg small as here = SC3, large ornate = Phantom (as a P5 /vehicle_81232-Rolls-Royce-Phantom-V-PV22.html or P6 /vehicle_148158-Rolls-Royce-Phantom-VI.html)
- also are sidelights slightly below headlights on SC3 and further below on Phantom?

Total production of Phantom VI was 332 cars.

Total production of SC III (LWB and SWB together) was 2297 cars.

The top corner of the rear screen on a Phantom was "squared off" compared with the Cloud/Bentley S bodyshell.

The chances of it being a PVI are nearly 10:1 against on production figures, and confirmed by the back view, plus the comment from vdp4litrer above. There is another possibility, it might be a converted Bentley!
