For Sale: 1973 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow in Wilmington, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

This is a gorgeous 1973 Silver Shadow finished in a special order color Coffee Bean Brown with Beige Connolly leather interior. This car was previously part of a large collection which explains the low mileage. The car sat for many years and upon me purchasing It, I have spent thousands of dollars reconditioning the car back to its former glory. I had all of the wood shipped to California to be refinished, spent thousands redoing he suspension system, and put on brand new period correct style Michelin tires. The exterior of the car is straight and rust free with the underside clean and tidy. The paint is in excellent condition with a consistent glossy finish all over. Being mostly original paint it has minor cracking due to the lead used by the factory to smooth the body when the car was new, this is normal on a car of this age. Overall, the exterior presents beautifully with all chrome and glass in good condition. Inside door edges and jams are clean and tidy. The interior of the car is excellent if not stunning. The interior leather is entirely original Connolly and remains soft and supple. It is in spectacular condition showing just the right amount of classic patina (and "patina" does NOT mean; rips, tears or cracks!) The leather finish displays the “toned hand-tanning” look that Rolls-Royce was doing for a limited time in the very early 70s. The leather on the rear seats has very minimal wear as the previously owner drove the car with no passengers ever riding in the rear.  The wood on the dash and door panels was redone in the last few weeks by a premier Rolls Royce restorer in California and shows excellently.  Mechanically the car is offered in very fine shape. All maintenance has been carried out and the car drives beautifully. A/C blows ice cold and the heater works well. All windows function as they should as does the radio. This Silver Shadow is ready to go anywhere.
