Presenting here, a really gorgeous example of a Silver Shadow II. Finished in 2-tone Willow Gold over Chestnut with matching fine lines to the waist-rails and hubcap beauty rings. The interior has handsome beige Connolly hides with chocolate piping and matching carpets, also with chocolate binding. The same beige theme carries through to the boot. This is a well maintained example by a long-standing client of ours. It presents in excellent condition. This has been a Texan car most of its life so it is a “dry” and clean example that has had a garaged environment. As a result, it has been freed from the perils of harsh weather and is very clean underneath. The car has factory fitted twin door-mounted rear view mirrors. In 2013 the car underwent a repaint in the same and original colour scheme. A full "glass-out and doors-off" repaint costing some $18,000. The paint is without blemish, flat as glass and on a very straight and dent free body. There is not even any signs of the usual "lead-wiping" cracking at the base of the A & C pillars, common on almost all Silver Shadows. The Willow gold over Chestnut is a rarely seen combination and is simply elegance at its best. The Silver Wraith II presented here has been work-shop inspected where all work needed is carried out. Important costly items such as the hydraulics and brakes are fully inspected and serviced as required. This includes checking of all brake hoses and system pressure tested and bled. Brakes pumps have been rebuilt, new accumulators fitted, calipers and pads serviced. It is ready to drive and enjoy. The odometer shows a low 44,000 miles and although this is not verifiable, the mileage is commensurate with the condition (particularly when you look at the condition of the interior, under-hood, brake pedal etc). It is very quiet and smooth on the road without any of the typical “thumps” and “rattles” typical of lesser maintained examples of this model. The interior is completely original with the Connolly leather never redyed or repaired. It is without tears nor fading and true to its Connolly characteristics showing just the right amount of patina. The beauty of original un-touched Connolly leather is that you have more than just the colour you "see" but a rich burnishing tone in the deep grain of the leather. This was a process unique to The Connolly Brothers' tanning process which ceased at the end of the Silver Shadow series. The burr walnut wood throughout the car is also all original. There are minor hairline cracks on the dash and chips on the front door cappings where the seatbelt often strikes the finish but nothing objectionable and, once again, showing a nice degree of gentle-use patina. stunning. The burl walnut in this example has a deep red hue and is truly magnificent. The head lining is original and in good condition. The original Wilton wool carpets with leather binding are also in good condition. Likewise is the dash and top-roll. The boot (trunk) carpet with the same theme is in excellent condition. The car has a near new set of Hankook 225/75 white-wall tyres and the stainless hubcaps are excellent with minimal to no imperfections. All remaining bright-work is in good condition. All electrics have been checked right down to the smallest and insignificant dash and courtesy light. Even the clock keeps good time! Under the bonnet, the presentation is amazing. It has not been precision detailed but simply kept clean and tidy throughout its life. The under-bonnet heat pads are the originals in good condition. As you would expect, this Shadow II comes with its original jack, correct tools and operating manual. The car is of very high standard and is an easy 10 out of 10 driver rating.
