 - Unique Example

 - Total Rolls Royce Factory restoration

This pristine 1971 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow I went through a total renovation and refurbishment at the Rolls Royce factory in Crewe. England in the late '90s.  Subsequent factory recommended updates and technological upgrades were implemented during the restoration. which resulted in a uniquely better car and the ultimate in luxury and driving experience.

Upon completion of the total rebuild. a three year unlimited mileage warranty was issued and the odometer was reset to zero by the Rolls Royce Factory. This car has won at least six awards so far. and one of the plaques was donated to Rolls Royce.

The experience of  driving this Silver Shadow is magnificent. it is flawless. with superior handling due to the upgraded factory suspension handling package. The Rolls Royce factory installed sound system is concert like in its fidelity.  Impeccably presented in Silver Sand over Walnut color. the chrome details. paintwork and interior are beautiful throughout.   

This stunning masterpiece offers you the rare opportunity to own a “better than when new” classic car. that will be the envy of any collection.
