For Sale: 1979 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow in Carey, Illinois

Vehicle Description

This is an incredibly delicious Silver Shadow II that is truly like new in every way. A stunning 8,900 mile example which most certainly would make her the lowest mileage Silver Shadow II available anywhere. She is finished in the delightful combination of Ivory over Brewster green with an interior reflecting the same theme of beige Connolly hides with green accented piping and carpets. You know when others talk about their car as being "immaculate", "flawless" and "perfect" and you end up rolling your eyes when you see it? ~ not with this car. She is literally as you would expect using these words. Lets pretend it is 1984, and this Silver Shadow II is sitting on the Rolls-Royce dealership floor. THIS is how "new" this Silver Shadow presents today. She is a spectacular vehicle that belongs in a museum as equally as she does in a private collection. As you would expect with the crazy low miles, the car really is spectacular. The interior is the absolute highlight in that it literally looks brand new in every respect. Just looking at the wood alone brings you back to 1979 - there is not a single mark, crack in the clear nor blemish. The true meaning of the word "flawless". Have a look at all the close-up photographs of the switches, knobs, chrome finishings; they look like factory photo shots. And the piece de resistance is the smell of the interior which is truly as the car was new. I will never forget the smell of the inside of a Silver Shadow when they were new on the showroom floor. Delivered new in Los Angeles in 1979 by the then Rolls-Royce dealer; Peter Satiori, the car was driven very sparingly for the first 5 years. The car was then sold to its most recent owner who drove it very little since keeping the in climate control storage as part of a very large classic car collection that included a Mercedes Gullwing and a 330 Ferrari. Although used for special occasions in the 1980s and 1990s, the car then sat on blocks and always covered up when not being shown. When we received the car, the cosmetic condition was stunning. With the exception of some cleaning, polishing and finishing, we did nothing to the body, paint, bright-work, under-hood nor interior. This is how she came! Mechanically, of course, she will be brought up to speed as would be the case with any Silver Shadow that has been left to sit for so long. This will include pretty much full refurbishment of all the hydraulics and brakes and any other mechanicals and operational features like windows, door-locks electric seats, air conditioning, heater etc. This will bring the car fully up to date on maintenance and service and to ensure EVERYTHING is operating as it should. Upon delivery, the car will present in as perfect condition as you could possibly expect for a non-restored car, both operationally as well as aesthetically. Needless to say, the car is entirely straight, never accident damaged and 100% rust free. She was NEVER driven in inclement weather and always stored in climate control environment. The interior of this Silver Shadow II is pretty much close to perfect. The beige Vaumol-Luxan Connolly hide leather is 100% original from the factory. It has never been re-dyed and is in absolutely outstanding condition with no tears nor fading and not a single sign of wear. It is super supple and soft - true to its Connolly characteristics. Perhaps these seats were covered and hence protected, because they are truly flawless (those that know me, appreciate I rarely ever use that word). Have a look at the photos where I include many close ups of the leather. My best description, is the leather looks like that of a 2-3 year old Silver Shadow II. In my 45 years with Rolls-Royce, with the exception of 1 other car in our stable, the last time I saw Silver Shadow leather this good was back when the cars were new or near new. A great welcome with true "original Luxan leather" which was available only through Connolly Bros. leather hides,
