Here is a really fine and original example of a Shadow II. Finished in Georgian Silver over Masons black with dark red fine lines to the waist-rail and hubcap beauty rings. The interior has handsome burgundy Connolly hides and black Wilton carpets with seat matching burgundy piping. The same theme carries through to the boot. This is an unmolested example that has been nicely maintained and presents in very good condition. It is primarily all original with no modifications except for the installation of a later model Blaupunkt radio cassette to that normally fitted. This was a Californian car that also spent several recent years in San Antonio, Texas so it is a dry car that has had a garaged environment. As a result, it has been freed from the perils of harsh weather. In the last few years, it has been collector owner and kept in climate controlled storage in Wisconsin where it has never been used in adverse weather conditions. It has always been well maintained and serviced and comes with its original manual. The Silver Shadow II presented here has been recently fully work-shop inspected with all work needed carried out. Important costly items such as the hydraulics and brakes have been fully serviced including new brake hoses, calipers serviced and system pressure tested and bled. The rear height control works as it should (testament to a well serviced example as many are often disconnected). It is ready to drive and enjoy. The odometer shows a low 75,000 and although this is not verifiable the mileage is commensurate with the condition (particularly when you look at the condition of the leather, carpets, brake pedal etc). It is very quiet and smooth on the road without any of the typical thumps and rattles typical of poor (or even averagely) maintained examples of this model. The interior looks close to perfect. It is finished in rich burgundy which was often referred to by UK-based Rolls-Royce dealers as House of Lords red (after the English parliamentary house which famously uses this rich burgundy leather). The leather is in absolutely outstanding original condition with no cracks, tears nor fading and very supple and soft true to its Connolly characteristics. The leather really has been lovingly preserved. The burr walnut wood on the dash is original and in good condition. The wood on the door cappings were redone to factory standard by leading wood re-finisher; JC Wood. It was only redone because of a number of seatbelt chips in the 2 front door woods which detracted from the overall high standard of the interior (This is a typical problem where the seat belt buckle hits the door capping resulting in unsightly chips in the lacquer). The head lining is original and in good condition. The original black Wilton wool carpets with burgundy leather binding are in fantastic condition. Likewise is the black finishes to the dash and top-roll. The boot (trunk) carpet with the same black and burgundy binding theme is also in excellent condition. The body on this Shadow II is straight and the paint is shiny and lustrous. The car was repainted some 5 years ago and was a quality job. They are the original colours and the finish is consistent. When you look down the sides of the car, they are very straight and true. READ More:
