For Sale: 1976 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow in Carey, Illinois

$34,800

Vehicle Description

This is one of the last of the Silver Shadows made. It can be confidently said that the 1975-76 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 is finished in “Highland Green” with Honey Tan Connolly hide interior with Ivory piping and light fawn rugs. The car is finished with hand-painted tan fine-lines on the body waist-line and the hub-cap trim rings. The color is a stunning combination with the “Highland Green” presenting in a deep emerald hue. The leather finished off with Ivory piping sets the interior off perfectly. With the subtle factory green tint to the glass all round, the car looks stunning. The body on the car is straight and the paint is very nice. There are some slight imperfections here and there that can be seen on close inspection of the photos (there are the typical marks at the "A" and "C" pillars where Rolls-Royce used the lead-wiping technique to join body panels. This caused the paint to fracture as. This occurred on literally EVERY Silver Shadow made). There is also some small paint chips around the headlights, however, they are not objectionable but are mentioned out of “clear-disclosure”. The interior of the car is in stunning condition with excellent condition Connolly hide leather. All the wood – on the dash, window surrounds, the door cappings and the vanity mirrors– were professionally re-done to exacting Rolls-Royce standards at considerable cost by a RR wood re-finisher and has the correct flat mirror finish. It is truly flawless The headlining is very good and the carpet excellent. The deep grain and glossy finish of the rich grained wood in this example combined with the warmth of the Honey tan leather make the interior of this car very rich and inviting. Overall it is like new and smells like it too. **For the winning bidder, a brand new set of genuine Rolls-Royce lambswool mouton rugs are available (driver side shown in pics).** 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 also clean and crisp. It has its original push-button radio and factory installed 8-track cassette – not many left these days. 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. All hydraulics and brakes have been inspected and tested, working perfectly. Exhaust is good. The car has been fully work-shop inspected. The car is fitted with a matching set of Michelin tires. These are delightfully "period correct" but they are old. For show use and light driving they are fine but if you are intending to go touring, new tyres are recommended. We can supply and fit these if you so require. Please enquire. This is a 9 out of 10 driver example that needs nothing else doing. Even though not a show car, she makes for a gorgeous “weekender” that you could still take to your next RR meet with pride and joy.
