Vehicle Description

A distinctly beautiful 2-owner Silver Shadow sedan in simply stunning condition inside and out. This is one of the last of the Silver Shadows. It can be confidently said that the 1974-76 year manufactured Silver Shadows were the best of the series as they incorporated all of the technological and design enhancements developed over the life of the model (1966-76). This one displays beautifully in Walnut (metallic) with rich chocolate Connolly hide interior and mid-tan Wilton wool carpets with chocolate leather binding. The car is finished with hand-painted gold fine-lines on the body waist-line and the hub-cap trim rings. The color combination speaks "English country-side" in the most elegant of manners. The body on the car is very straight and the paint is extremely nice. It was a Californian car for most of its life and then residing it Texas for the last 10 years. So she is very "dry & clean". Most of the paint is original and presents today like a very well cared-for original example should. Other than the odd little chip and mark here and there, the paint is excellent. Entirely consistent, high in luster and no signs of any over-spray on any externally fitted part. Please understand, high metallic colours used by Rolls-Royce in the 70s did not "go the distance" and chemically broke down after 20 years to evidence loss of shine and fade. For this car to sport mostly original paint is inarguable testament to it being a very well looked after example. Notably, this car has never suffered accident damaged and certainly no rust issues. The interior of the car is in stunning condition with excellent condition original Connolly hide leather. The leather has never been replaced or repaired, with just the right amount of welcoming patina that is just gorgeous. The leather is soft and supple. All the wood is in virtually perfect condition with dash all original and the door cappings never having been redone. Other than some minor and only mildly noticeable hairline marks, it is wonderful. "Original wood finishes" in a Silver Shadow is rare to see these days and is further testament to its cosseted low mileage existence. The headlining is in nice condition without any of the "grubbiness" often seen on these wool headliners. The carpet is also excellent. The deep grain and glossy finish of the rich grained wood in this example combined with the rich chocolate interior makes it all very rich and inviting. **For the winning bidder, a set of genuine Rolls-Royce lambswool mouton rugs are available We recommend brown accordingly. All interior feature and functions are fully operational including all electrics - seats, windows, gauges, clock etc. The A/C blows icy cold and heater working well. Everything is all so clean and crisp. It has its original Blaupunkt push button radio between the front seats and its factory installed Pioneer 8-track cassette in the centre console. The chrome and bright work is stunning without any pitting and the rubber around the car is good. Mechanically, the car is in superior condition and the presentation under the bonnet and under carriage clearly shows that. It has not been "done-up" for sale but maintained in original condition. The car underwent all major and minor services by Park-Ward in 2019 at a cost of some $15,000. This includes all hydraulics and brakes have been serviced as required and inspected and tested. The car needs absolutely nothing and is part of our sale guarantee. The car comes with the correct jack, tools and operating manual. The car shows some 65,000 miles and carries all the signs of this being accurate. In actuality, if someone was to say the car has travelled half these miles, you would believe it. She is that nice! This is a 10 out of 10 driver example that needs nothing else doing. It makes for a gorgeous "weekender" that you could take to your next RR meet with pride and joy. The car comes very close (if not already) to true Rolls-Royce (RROC displa
