Vehicle Description

This is a gorgeous presenting Silver Shadow finished in Shell grey with dark grey leather interior. Completed with hand-painted fine lines to the waistlines and hubcap beauty trim rings finished in a contrasting dark blue. The exterior of the car is straight and is totally rust free with the underside clean and tidy. It has been a "snow-bird" Florida car most of its life. The paint is in excellent condition with the finish high in luster and consistent all over. It has only very minor little marks but certainly nothing noticeable and mentioned purely for the purpose of clear disclosure. It is very nice indeed. The paint is so good, that it is quite clearly the result of a high quality repaint ($15,000+). I would guess it was redone in the last 8-10 years with the car having been used very little since. It presents beautifully with all chrome and glass in good condition. Inside door edges and jams are incredibly clean and tidy without unsightly overspray and all the signs of a quality restoration. The interior of the car is excellent. The front seats were re-upholstered (probably when the car was repainted) and were done extremely well using high quality leather and very correct stitching and padding. The "crowns" to seat pleats are excellent. The rear seat is original and all matches in very well. Truly exquisite and the photos show this well. The interior is without any tears or unsightly wear marks and truly looks lovely. The headliner was also redone in correct broadcloth wool in a matching dark grey and the door cappings refinished to a very high standard. The dash wood is original and does have some minor hair-line fractures in the clear but the underlying wood excellent. It doesn't "demand" re-doing but should you wish these to be redone to match the rest of the wood, please speak to us as we do this in-house and would be happy to do so for you. A new modern stereo has been fitted with high quality, discretely mounted extra speakers. In keeping with tradition, a Blaupunkt unit was a great choice. Door panels, finishings, interior chrome work, gauges and instruments are all in very fine condition. The carpets are new - not factory correct material but with factory mouton overlays included so they present well - and the rear parcel shelf and dash pad are all in very fine condition. The trunk carpet looks is the same as used in the interior and is in good condition. Tyres are brand new 215/75 whitewalls, with the hubcaps straight and the stainless steel shiny. Mechanically the car is excellent. Like all our cars, it has been recently work-shopped with all the hydraulics/braking system serviced and working well. The car has been well maintained over the years with the more typical items having been done. At Park-Ward, we went over the entire vehicle and attended to whatever was needed. This included solid and flexible brake lines, reservoir flush, brake pumps and accumulators, calipers, valves and restrictors. Service and maintainence has upgrades to include later model front shocks and towers - a vast improvement. The engine truly purrs. The car is very spritely in power which is a good sign of a well cared for and good condition motor. The ride is smooth and quiet with none of the rattles and squeeks that can be typical of this model. The odometer reads 92,000 and although not verifiable, shows every sign of a low mileage example to the extent that you would be forgiven to think she has done less than 50,000. A/C blows ice cold and the heater works well. Electricals have all been serviced so windows, seats and features & functions work as they should. All interior and exterior lighting has been checked with all bulbs and lamps functioning correctly. The original Rolls-Royce jack and operating manual come with the car.
