A car like this 1976 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow is all about turning
heads. While you can also get attention in a growling muscle car, a
vintage Rolls like this is just the kind of machine that makes you
memorable for your taste. It's the kind of elegance where people
will never believe you paid such a low price (and no one says you
have to tell them.)
Having the iconic and imposing grille leading the way is worth the
price all on its own. Still, we especially like this one because
this generation of Rolls-Royce is one of the most iconic styles
around. They seemed to understand how flowing lines are the best
ways to show grace. That's why the rounded fender tops seem to
create a stream that follows the full trim line until it reaches
the tapered rear end. And the walnut brown paint has a hint of
metallic to give off the right shine while never looking out of
place against the tasteful tan vinyl roof. And for a Rolls, the
elegance is in the details. That's why the door handles are
disguised within the side trim and the wheel covers are
color-matched to the body. The paint and presentation here are not
perfect, and the value price reflects creating room in your budget
for any updates or upgrades you may want to do. Even with
imperfections seen today, it does not take away from the quality
and prestige of a hand-crafted vehicle.
The interior keeps a highly original style, and that's a good
thing. For example, Rolls leather is some of the best in the world
where they take extra time and care to choose the best hides, and
that quality can be lost if just redone by some random trim shop.
Beautiful wood trim plush carpeting and plenty of room to spread
out really remind you why this is an internationally recognized
symbol of luxury. You get a commanding driver's position with power
front seats and a firm grip on the glossy black steering wheel.
There are provisions for air conditioning, power locks, and power
windows (they will need additional servicing to ideally function
again.) It's a preserved car and that means you get all the right
little details, like the AM/FM stereo with a separate 8-track
player. And the little red lights in each door that aluminate to
warn oncoming drivers is a true classic British touch. These are
the little details that often get lost in hastily restored
vehicles, and so they are exciting to see when you're a classic car
The fuel-injected 6.75-liter V8 under the hood is a staple of
Rolls-Royce luxury. And we even have multiple receipts documenting
keeping the fundamentals well serviced within the last few years.
So it remains a quiet and competent provider of confident luxury.
The easy driving nature extends to the three-speed automatic
transmission, power steering, and cruise control. The
fully-independent suspension glides over rough pavement like a
hovercraft, and it stays sure-footed with four-wheel power disc
Complete with maintenance records, this is an attractive luxury for
a very attractive price. So the first step to being upper-class
tomorrow is when you call today!
