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 Champagne Yellow with the very rare butternut yellow Connolly hide interior - with chocolate seat piping. The floor rugs are a gold hue Wilton wool with matching dark brown binding. The car is finished with hand-painted chocolate fine-lines on the body waist-line and the hub-cap trim rings. The color is a stunning combination with the Champagne presenting as an almost ivory yellow under typical light but then transforms into a deep ochre hue in lower light and at night time, giving the car a very formal look. The butternut leather finished off with the dark piping sets the interior off perfectly. Mechanically, the car is in superior condition. Not only has the car been subject to all the regular workshop processes undertaken by the Park-Ward Motors Museum but being owned and regularly driven by our most senior Rolls-Royce mechanic, she is in absolutely tip-top shape. "Richard" has been a mechanic for some 40 years and has been with Park-Ward Motors since it was formed here in the USA. His experience and knowledge of Silver Shadows expands some 500 cars and there is not a thing he does not know about them. Being his own personal weekender, Richard has done anything and everything needed on this Silver Shadow. This is TRULY one of those examples that could be driven across the United States tomorrow! Everything from hydraulics, brakes, electricals, up to date services and maintenance and all features and functions are in the best shape. Everything on the car works as it should. The body on the car is straight and the paint is very nice. It is was professionally top-half repainted recently so it presents well. Other than the odd chip and small blemish here and there as you might expect, the paint presents beautifully. It is consistent, high in luster and presents ideally as a excellent quality driver example. (The "Silver Shadow II" boot badge was not fitted by us). The interior of the car is lovely with its original Connolly hide leather showing just the right amount of patina. Excellent testament of it being a well maintained example. All the wood is in excellent condition with the door cappings and centre console having been redone not too long ago. The finish is deep in gloss, very flat and smooth like glass. 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 regal yellow and walnut browns of the leather and paint make the interior of this car very rich and inviting. 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. The radio is after-market from the 80s and we think it would suit having a period radio fitted. Please enquire as to cost if you are so inclined to agree. The car comes with the correct jack, tools and operating manual. This is a high ranking driver example that needs nothing else doing. It makes for a gorgeous “weekender” that you could take touring immediately. It is very rare that we would recommend "driving a Rolls-Royce home across many states" because we think buyers should exercise their purchase gently in readiness. But, as this example is regularly driven and maintained by an expert Rolls-Royce mechanic we confidently say; "go for it!" Please take the time to look at the photo link below to many additional photos where I have endeavored to capture how pretty this car is. Please feel free to ask any and all questions you may have as it is an as-is auction.
