1977 Rolls-Royce Shadow II

Project Shadow; recent service work; nice number included

The Shadow II arrived in 1977 and offered a much more precise driving experience in comparison to the outgoing model, thanks to various suspension mods and rack and pinion steering.

The dash was revised along with external styling, with updated bumpers and front spoiler which gave it a much more 'bluff-fronted' and contemporary appearance.

We know very little of this old girl, but she has clearly led a life and the bodywork is showing signs of age in numerous places as photographed. We don't know if the indicated 48,000 miles are correct although there is a letter on file from a previous owner who thought they were.

It was originally gold, changing to white in 1998 and looks to have had some service work in the recent past - plugs, coil and two new fuel pumps costing £1,086 in April 2022 which also included fitting electronic ignition supplied by the owner.

The car doesn't appear on the MOT history and we are not sure what it has been up to in the interim, although an undated letter states it was off the road for 20 years or so and this would accord with the time the DVLA computerised the MOT system.

The good news is the nice three letter, three number registration UHH 232 is include in the sale which will no doubt have a value of its own.
