This is a very fine Silver Shadow II finished in 2-tone Shell grey (silver) over Masons black with red fine-lines on the waistline and hubcap beauty rings. The interior is finished in rich red Connolly hides. This combination is quintessentially "Silver Shadow II". This is a very clean and original example that has been well cared for by its 2 previous mature owners of some 30 odd years. It is totally original with no modifications. It even has it original Blaupunkt blue-dot push button radio and factory Pioneer tape deck in its original position. A nice genuine touch. The body is straight and paint shiny and consistent. Like most Silver Shadows, it was repainted at some stage (probably 10 years ago) in its original colour combination and looks good. Overall, the car is minor on blemishes and marks so presents well - certainly well above average for a Rolls-Royce of this age. As a daily driver, the paint presents as a good 9 if not 10-out-of-10. The interior presents beautifully; very clean and fresh with the leather in good condition. It is the original factory leather and has only been mildly re-Connollised (a hand-rubbing process to restore colour) and is in fine condition without any noticeable wear and tear. The burl walnut wood inside the car is all original and remains in very nice condition with minimal marks in the lacquer. This is excellent testament to a car that has been well looked after and kept in a garage most its life. The dash roll is in good condition as is the head-liner and rear parcel shelf. All features, gauges, instruments and electrics work well. All interior lights and dash lights are all fully working. Heater and air-conditioning are fully functional. These are all thoroughly gone thru by Park-Ward. For example, we service all the windows to ensure smooth and swift up and down movement (windows often get very slow on Silver Shadows). Mechanically this Silver Shadow II is strong. For the last few years it has been in the care of a Rolls-Royce enthusiast and, as you would expect, is a well maintained example. Under the care of the Park-Ward Motor museum, all our Rolls-Royces are fully work-shop tested including the all important hydraulics and braking system. These are overhauled where required; pumps, accumulators, reservoirs cleaned, lines & hoses replaced, calipers & pads inspected and system final pressure tested and bled. The level heights are set correctly. Transmission, engine ancillaries and exhaust are all inspected and the car road-tested for correct operation. The car runs on Avon Turbosteel 235/70-15 whitewall tyres - the best tyre for Silver Shadow and the most expensive. At some $2,000 for a complete set, you know the previous owner was not one to cut any corners on maintenance, service and upkeep. The mileage, although not verifiable by documentation, is evident when you look closely at the various finishes. For example, the chrome and bright-work around the car is excellent. The brake pedal has minimal wear. This is a hard car to fault and drives very strong. As you would expect from a car of this mileage that has been well maintained, it comes with its original manual, tools and jack.
