Description

Here is yet another truly stunning example of a Silver Shadow II. Finished in 2-tone Shell Grey over Masons black with an elegant single burgundy fine line to the waist-rails. The interior has handsome rich burgundy leather hides with black piping and matching carpets. The same theme carries through to the boot. The Silver Shadow II was the ultimate of the Shadow series with many engineering upgrades to include rack & pinion steering, revised suspension geometry for a surer ride, factory dual (quiet) exhaust, climate control air conditioning and a revised dash board lay-out. This is a very original unmolested example that has been beautifully maintained and presents in excellent condition. A southern state Rolls-Royce all its life so it is a “dry” car that has had a garaged environment, only having resided in Illinois in the last 5 years but rarely driven in inclement weather. As a result, it has been freed from the perils of harsh weather and is very clean underneath. We sold the car to its most recent owner in 2014. A prominent identity in the US fashion industry, who never once hesitated when it came to necessary maintenance. To wit, some $40,000 in services, maintenance and upgrades have been done over the last 5 years (all receipts available upon purchase). This work was not done because the car was poorly, but because the owner constantly sought perfection at every level. Be it regular mechanical servicing down to the most insignificant little bulb in the dash or some annoying squeak in the seat; it had to be attended to. The car remains entirely original but for a modern Blaupunkt stereo system to include a bass box in the trunk but all installed in such a way so it can be removed without any sign of its existence (original tape player retained). The car runs the best of everything including new Avon Turbosteel whitewalls (the best and most expensive tyre for Silver Shadow) and ROW factory spec front air dam and spotlights installed. So, needless to say, this Shadow II here has been fully work-shop by us at Park-Ward. Important costly items such as the hydraulics and brakes are fully inspected and serviced as required. This includes reservoir cleaned and flushed, brake pumps, accumulators, valves, calipers, rotors and checking of all brake hoses and system pressure tested and bled. It is ready to drive and enjoy. The odometer shows a low 45,300 and although this is not verifiable with documentation, there can be no question it is accurate (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 poor (or even averagely) maintained examples of this model. I cant stress enough, just how beautiful this Shadow II is. The interior is in great condition with little to no wear nor fading and true to its Connolly characteristics. The leather really has been lovingly preserved and shows the correct amount of patina. The burr walnut wood throughout the car is stunning. All the wood is original except for a section of the dash we did redid for the owner. These were done to “factory standard” and you cannot "pick it". The final finish on all the wood throughout is very high with only very minor imperfections in the finish. And, you have to thank Mother Nature for its beauty. The grain and pattern with thick knots makes it one of the most beautiful for Rolls-Royce. Absolutely stunning! The head lining is original and in excellent condition. The original Wilton wool carpets with leather binding are in excellent condition and the car comes with an original set of lambswool moutons that finish off the interior nicely. Likewise is the leather finish to the dash and top-roll. Even the boot (trunk) carpet with the same theme is in excellent condition. The exterior presentation of this Silver Shadow II is stunning. The body is exceptionally straight and the paint is of excellent high st
