Didn't the SC3 have smaller overriders?

Twin headlight front wings and low bonnet trump over riders, this is in America, so the larger export over riders may be fitted.

Two pictures of SC III here, one with large and one with small. As I have said before, you tell Royce's what you want, and they do it.

My observed findings - nothing found on record - is that UK and Europe SC3 and Bentley S3 had small overriders, but US kept big ones. Not sure what happened elsewhere - eg Aus, ZA, HK, whatever.

Not directly applicable to SC III, of course, but I have quite comprehensive documentation for my Bentley, and the Service Manual states quite clearly that various different bumper and overrider types were available, even stating the effect on the car's overall length of fitting each type.

It is necessary to adopt a different mind set when dealing with these cars. They do not follow the lines of mass produced stuff like Jaguar or Mercedes, it was possible to order items that deviated from the normal specification. As an instance, every description of my model of Bentley will say it has a right hand gear change. Mine has a centre gear change, factory fitted.

The two Silver Cloud III cars on my link above are both right hand drive and both registered in GB according to their number plates. One has small overriders and one has large. I would not try to extrapolate anything from such detail, except to say again (probably ad nauseam) that you could buy it if you could pay for it.
