1977 Rolls-Royce Shadow I

Shabby chic late model Shadow 1 driven 50 miles to the sale; recent spend on accumulator and brake pipes

Dating from January 1977, this late model Shadow I has been used as part of a wedding fleet, although more recently has been enjoyed by our vendor to go to and from Oswestry on the Welsh border from his home near Llandrindod Wells which it has done with ease. Driven some 50 miles to the sale, the car reportedly drove well.

Finished in an attractive hue of ice blue with matching dark blue leather, the car sits right and looks presentable. Up close, the paint is unlikely to win any awards with signs of localised amateur, rather than professional repairs as pictured, but for the money, it looks as you would expect.

The interior shows some sign of age with a tear to the driver’s seat leather base and cracking typical of dry leather this age. The odometer shows an indicated mileage of 78,758 miles.

The history file includes only the V5C showing 14 former keepers and a couple of bills for a reconditioned accumulator, oil filter, brake hoses and brake fluid in 2020. The car is of course now MOT exempt but was last presented in 2010 when it failed on 8 points (check online at check-mot.service.gov.uk and enter the reg), its not clear what subsequent works have been undertaken in the last 11 years to rectify these points.

Affordable entry to the Classic Rolls, or classic car experience with space and grace aplenty.
