 ROLLS ROYCE SILVER SHADOW Mk1- LONG WHEELBASE
BREWSTER GREEN COACHWORK WITH MATCHING LEATHER INTERIOR

There are very few LWB models remaining so this is now quite rare. It was Sir Owen Aisher's chauffeur driven car for many years. then owned by his grandson until I bought it 14 years ago. I am now downsizing so my much loved Rolls needs a new home.  

Road tax exempt; built Dec 1973 first reg 1974; mileage 81. 00.   MOT April 2015

The interior is in fine condition and includes the lambswool over-rugs and foot rests. Since owning the car (16. 00 miles ago) it has had a new stainless exhaust. aircon rebuild. back brakes overhaul. brake hoses. 4 new tyres. gbox oil & filter changed. various new front suspension parts and a variety of other routine service & maintenance tasks including an underside waxoly coating. The tyres still have over 6. 5 mm of tread.   The original toolkit is almost complete.   There is a full A4 file of historic and service papers starting with the purchase invoice in 1973 and the factory build records from the RREC.   I also have a full set of 5 lever arch RR workshop manuals.

The paintwork is original but less than perfect and I have done some repair work to the rust around the wheel arches. sills  etc but these are probably about the norm for a 40 year old car which is otherwise in original condition. The 8 track stereo slurs badly but the LW-MW radio is fine.   One rear window only operates from the passenger door switch and not the chauffeurs front switch.   The only advisory on the last MOT was a couple (very old) minor oil leaks and the spare wheel carrier which needed repairing - done.

A viewing and/or a telephone review is recommended.   Its very difficult to cover every aspect of such a complex car in an advert but I hope to have been fair and accurate.   The last RREC insurance valuation was £11. 00 so £8. 50 seems a good market price but  I am open to sensible offers.   Location mid Kent. Tel 01892 730288  John.
