This is a stunning presenting Silver Shadow Long Wheel Base ("LWB") sedan finished in Shell grey with a black Everflex vinyl top. It has a single hand-painted fine line to the waist-rails and hubcap beauty trim rings finished in interior-matching black. The interior is finished in the ever so formal black Connolly leather hides with matching carpets. This combination is very elegant and classic for an early Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow. The long wheel base ("LWB") version of the Silver Shadow, easily identified by the small rear window (opera window) and standard fitment Everflex vinyl top, it is 4” longer in the rear door. This provides a noticeable increase in rear passenger space. This is a southern state car owned by mature gentlemen for many years and everything about it shows utter pride of ownership and care. The interior of the car finished in rich black Connolly leather is deliciously elegant. The leather is entirely original Connolly Vaumol from factory and in beautiful condition. It displays the right amount of patina that we look for, yet without a single tear, crack or unsightly blemish. It remains very supple and without issues. The headliner is in amazing condition, finished in its original light grey broad cloth wool still showing its “new” tuft and pile. It displays no stains, marks nor wear that you will quite often see on Silver Shadows. Welcomingly, this example has none and can be comfortably described as perfect. Door panels, dash panel, rear parcel shelf, interior chrome work, gauges and instruments are all in very fine condition. The rich light African burl walnut throughout is all original and presents incredibly nice and near perfect condition. With only the most minor and insignificant marks in the clear finish, it all presents wonderfully with its glass-like finish. It is very rare to see original wood finishes in a Silver Shadow looking this good. Please take the time to look at the close up photos of the dash - virtually flawless! And, with the beauty of only the best of burl walnut, the grain in this Silver Shadow displays a lovely thread of knots in the grain which blends from rich yellow ochres to those of light brown. It is truly stunning. The exterior of the car is very straight and rust free with the underside clean and tidy. The paint has had some refinishing over the years and is in superb condition. It is the car’s original Shell grey. In some places the paint appears to be factory original and yet looks wonderful, which is further testament to its well-maintained history. All chrome and glass is in superb condition, right down to factory correct Lucas headlamps fitted. The black Everflex top is original and in fine condition but for a rather odd mark in the very centre of the roof where it looks like perhaps something was mounted there but we cannot determine what. You can see it in a few select photos. Interestingly, you don’t really see it when standing and looking at the car but if you were to “ladder up”, you can. Because the remainder of the Everflex top is very nice, we don’t see any need to replace. But, by all means, please do enquire if you think it is something you would like us to do as we have the professional skills to do so in-house. Even with this blemish, the outside of the car presents to true Rolls-Royce standards. The trunk carpet is in good condition, with the correct jack and tools in place. Tyres are Kumho 225/70-15 whitewalls, with the hubcaps straight and the stainless steel super shiny. Mechanically the car is in fantastic shape. Just a look under the hood says everything about its maintenance and the penchant for originality. It has been work-shopped by Park-Ward with all the hydraulics/braking system serviced and working well. The car has been well maintained over the years with the more typical hydraulic and brake items having been done. The engine truly purrs and gear-change is smooth and quiet. The car is very spritely in power which is a goo
