Rolls Royce  Silver Shadow 1 – 1970

Lovely car that’s just arrived with us.  A car we’d dearly love to keep for our own use, but space as always for us is at a premium.

The car was bought last July from a Rolls Royce Specialist and has not been used in the last 14mths due to ill health.

We now have the car with us and safely stored.

The car was subject to a full body and mechanical restoration between 2012 and 2015.  Very little use since.  £35,000 was spent on the bodywork alone.

Over £50,000 was the spend on the total restoration, and we have a detailed paper and digital file showing the various work carried out on the car during this period, plus a very long and detailed, line by line overview of the work that was undertaken.   A selection of photos are shown below, plus we will be adding the work sheets so you can read in more detail for yourself.

A lovely car and a sound investment.  These early Shadows are very much in vogue, super cool …and very much on the up.

We are selling the car on behalf of the owner, and as such it will be sold ‘as is’.    So allow for a service and small amount of classic car prep as would be expected on a classic car, but as you can see, the car is in beautiful condition.  It does have a A/C (Refrigeration pack) fitted, but would require a re-gas and service.   All of the electrical items work, windows, seats, electric aerial etc.  The rear suspension works perfectly and the drive is excellent.

Note: The only real blemishes on the car are:

  • The wood cappings could do with being redone.
  • The rear O/S bumper corner needs to be polished to remove a light mark.  Hardly visible, and we only noticed it after parking next to the car in a very low classic sports car.Please take a look at the high-res photos and videos below that are best viewed on a desktop to get the best from the presentation.
