For sale a beautiful 1978 Silver Shadow II LEFT HAND DRIVE!
Was running when parked back in May. but I suspect a faulty alternator won't let it run now. I tried starting it this last week. and runs for a short time and then in shuts downEngine fires on all 8 cylinders and is very powerful. Oil pressure is correct and there is no overheating. Transmission engages and shifts smoothly as you would expect of a Rolls Royce. Transmission leaks some oil when parked for a long time. typical of this tranny. needs new set of seals. A/C runs cold. and don't think it was retrofitted from the R12. I have a video of the engine running and the vehicle driving. if requested I can email them.
The brake system requires a secondary circuit bleed. but works and brakes great.
Paint looks good from a distance but since it's the original paint you will notice spider cracks and other imperfections close up.  Leather needs some repair at the driver seat and refinishing through out. and the burl wood trim needs the clear coat stripped and reapplied.
Not in perfect condition. but an excellent candidate for some restoration work. Great thing about these vehicles is that the a lot of the stuff is American made. like the power steering (Saginaw). transmission (GM TH400). A/C (G/M). alternator. air pump and others. which makes them easily and cheap to repair or replace. A lot of the parts are readily available aftermarket and I can provide the websites and phone numbers for the companies that have them.  Luckily the big ticket items in this vehicle are strong and healthy! I currently am restoring a 1970 Silver Shadow. and without dedicating a lot of exclusive time for this. it will be done in a little over a year. and I can provide you with some of my experience and resources.
An absolute head turner. and and a very beautiful automobile.
Contact with any questions. I'll do my best to answer them. Clean title in hand. Tons of photos and videos available by request.
