This is a nice example of a classic Rolls. it is a 1969 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow 1 ordered new in Carribean Blue with Grey Leather. which it still is today. It is a perfect driving car. It is a little bit scruffy in the paintwork and the interior is a little tired but it is as strong mechanically as is possible having been subject to over £17. 00 worth of remedial work in the last two years. this after being purchased from a specialist in 2013 for £8. 00. As you can see this represents a real beargain today at the advertised price. The car has covered a believed genuine 130k Miles from new.
'In short: these cars combine advanced engineering and safety specifications with traditional Rolls-Royce standards of craftsmanship. In the manner of their performance they are as revolutionary as the Silver Ghost was 59 years ago. announced Rolls-Royce at the Silver Shadow's launch in 1965.
The foregoing was no mere flight of fancy. for with the introduction of the Silver Shadow. Rolls-Royce brought its body/chassis engineering bang up to date by switching to unitary construction. while retaining all the hallmarks of a traditional hand-crafted product. The Shadow's all-round independent suspension and power-operated four-wheel disc brakes were both 'firsts' for Rolls-Royce. while the new styling appealed to the younger generation of Rolls-Royce owner-drivers more prevalent from the mid-1960s onwards. The existing 6. 2-litre V8 continued in the Shadow until the need to maintain power while conforming to US emissions regulations saw it enlarged to 6. 50cc in 1970. Notable prior developments had included the adoption of GM400 automatic transmission and air conditioning as standard.
Needless to say. this car drives as good as any Shadow. is a little cosmetically scruffy. so would benefit from a little TLC but with the money spent already. will make the finest Shadow out there with little effort. It comes with a new MOT. is Tax Free. and would take you everywhere this summer in luxury!
