1978 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow II

SOLD £3,234

Deceased estate Shadow II from 26 year ownership thats seen little recent use; requires restorative work to return to its former glory

Supplied new by Jack Barclay in November 1978 to its first owner, the car was originally finished in Brewster Green (paint code 9510393) on both upper and lower sections with optional beige velour trim (warmer on the bum than leather, with less passenger slide!) and walnut trim. The car retains its original radio and features rear foot rests and electric front seats with integrated arm rests. Showing 110,000 miles its unclear if this is genuine given the car has been stood idle in storage for a number of years following the vendor’s demise. Our vendor has owned this car since 1994 and was a Rolls lover with another earlier Shadow still in storage, also in white like this Shadow II. The colour change from green to white is recorded by Experian in July 1990. Boasting the venerable and proven 189bhp 6.75 V8 with GM sourced Turbo-Hyrdramatic 400 automatic transmission and as a Shadow II, features much improved rack and pinion steering and tighter handling than its forebear. The Rolls requires a degree of recommissioning before being used on the road again, and comes to us as a non-runner following many years sat idle, however the bodywork looks sound enough with a few bubbles and cracks to the paint in the usual Shadow places but is generally presentable, particularly the lovely interior. The history file includes just the V5 with no recent MOTs recorded on the VOSA website since 2005. Offered here at No Reserve, the highest bid takes her away.
