Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow II
Many photos below. so please take the time to read the description to allow them all to load.
This is a lovely Silver Shadow II sedan presented in "Crown" gold with chocolate leather interior. sporting light cream (off-white) seat piping and floor rug binding. The car is finished with hand-painted fine-lines in chocolate on the body waist-line. The color is a stunning combination with the dark brown chocolate leather finished off with cream piping sets the interior off perfectly.
This Silver Shadow II has all the fitments as standard with the model but with the addition of an electrically operated sun-roof. A nice and rather unique extra for the model.
The body on the car is straight and the paint is gorgeous having been professionally repainted in the last 2 years as part of a restoration undertaken prior to the car coming to us. It was a complete repaint with all chrome off and door jams done correctly. It was a high-end job at a cost of some $15. 00. Other than the odd little imperfection (from storage since repaint) the paint is perfect. Completely consistent. high in luster and no signs of any over-spray on any externally fitted part. Bright-work is very lustrous having been polished during the repaint phase (door sills. hubcaps. etc). A European specification front air-dam has been fitted which finishes the car off beautifully.
The interior of the car is in stunning condition having been recently reConnollised. It does have some minor “natural” creases in the leather which gives the car a welcomed patina. The rear seat cushion has a little more but quite acceptable and without any concerning splits. The burr walnut wood throughout the car is stunning. It was entirely redone by the Park-Ward Motors Museum at a cost of some $3. 00. The process was done in accordance with the Rolls-Royce "multi-layer lacquering technique" which involves painstaking wet sanding and buffing by hand between all coats. The final finish on the wood throughout is simply stunning and is like glass. A bonus with this Shadow II is the burl walnut is a very dark. rich and intensely knotty grain for which we thank the luck and grace of Mother Nature for this great touch. The depth and glossy finish of the heavily grained wood in this example combined with the rich chocolate leather make the interior of this car very rich and inviting. The dash and rear parcel shelf are like new and the carpets close to perfect. **For the winning bidder. a brand new set of genuine Rolls-Royce lambswool mouton rugs are available (driver side shown in pics). These are still in there factory Crewe box and plastic wrapping. **
All interior feature and functions are fully operational including all electrics – seats. windows. gauges. clock etc. The A/C blows icy cold and heater working well. Everything is also clean and crisp.
Mechanically. the car is in good condition and the presentation under the bonnet and under carriage clearly shows that. The car has been fully work-shop inspected. All hydraulics and brakes have been inspected. tested and working well. Many items have been serviced by us; brake pumps. accumulators. all 6 calipers rebuilt with new pads and the system bled and pressure tested. Exhaust is good and transmission serviced. The odometer shows a low 41. 00 miles which is not verifiable and seems low for the year but it is possibly correct. It is very quiet and smooth on the road without any of the typical “thumps” and “rattles” typical of poor (or even averagely) maintained examples of this model.
The car is fitted with a matching set of Continental whitewall tyres and the hubcaps are those from the Silver Wraith II model (an original set of Shadow II vented style hubcaps are available if preferred - please enquire). The car comes with the correct jack. tools and operating manual.
This is a 9 out of 10 driver example that needs nothing else doing. It makes for a gorgeous “weekender” that you could take to your next RR meet with pride and joy.
~~ Being a significantly well-above average example of a Silver Shadow II that has been the subject of a professional restoration. this will bring a good price. Notwithstanding. we remain open to sensible offers. ~~
Interesting information on the Silver Shadow series
The “II” mark provided considerable improvement over the earlier Silver Shadow. In 1977. the model was renamed the Silver Wraith II (Shadow II) in recognition of several major changes. most notably rack and pinion steering. modifications to the front suspension which improved handling markedly. a dual exhaust along with the first-to-market fully automatic dual system air-conditioning system and a modernised and improved dash lay-out. The model represents the pinnacle in design features for the Silver Shadow series that started production in 1966.

A note from RRMOTORSINC:
“For those Rolls-Royce enthusiasts who have followed my auctions in the past I welcome you all. For those who are new to my adverts and/or the marque. please note that as a serious collector of some 30 years. all my cars are truly described examples. I have my own private Rolls-Royce workshop (not open to the public but dedicated to my own cars) with trained Rolls-Royce craftsmen who are proficient in all aspects. We have now exceeded 200 Rolls-Royces and Bentleys restored and sold for shipping world-wide from our current premises. As a team. we are dedicated to the preservation of the marque and as such. any car that leaves the stable is completely inspected and work-shopped to ensure mechanical and operational items are maintained appropriately. We adopt a “keep it original” mentality with pride and confidence. offering after sales technical support and assistance well beyond the sale. Because most of my cars are offered for the pleasures of driving enjoyment it is not always possible or practical to seek perfection (in the true sense of the word) but we do always uphold excellence in whatever we do. Our cars are by no means cheap priced cars but we like to think they are amongst the best. To this end. I firmly believe in the famous adage; “Quality is remembered long after the price is forgotten. ” We hope you do to. ”
*We at Park-Ward Motors – the things we do.
When our Rolls-Royces are commissioned for resale. they are indeed professionally and correctly “fully work-shopped”. No corners are cut. And it is all addressed in true Crewe tradition. There is way too much to list here but to give you an example of our commitment to excellence of the various processes. this is one such example of what we do:
Doors and windows:-
Every car has its interior door panels removed. If the wood is in need of repair (as most are) it is refinished in-house by trained and talented craftsmen at Park-Ward Motors. This is a detailed process of stripping the wood of its old lacquer. repairing the veneer if there is damage. staining the top surface as per Rolls-Royce methodology and refinishing with no less than 25 coats of clear lacquer. Hand wet-sanded and polished between all of its last 15 coats. New window felt guides and wood-to-glass foam seals are fitted. All window mechanisms are checked and serviced for smooth and efficient up and down movement. This includes an electrical modification to rectify the typical “slow window syndrome”. All tracks. chains and gears are lubricated. Where central locking is fitted. these are all serviced to ensure no “solenoid sticking”. another common problem. Units are repaired and or changed as required for refurbished units. Door wiring and door-to-body wiring is checked. repaired and/or replaced as required. The splash plastic on the inside of the doors to protect the leather panels from rain splash from inside the door is replaced with correct specification black plastic as used by the factory. Cut to shape and glued in position as per original. All door hardware is checked and repaired as required including locks. handles and scuttle finishes. The door is reassembled with all items cleaned and polished. The wood refitted and the leather panels are re-Connollised before final fitment.
Take this example and apply it to the many. many different aspects of Rolls-Royce restoration. service and maintenance and you have our dedication to correct and professional vehicle pre-delivery preparation and commissioning.
Standard Terms & Conditions for all Rolls-Royce & Bentley sales by RRMOTORSINC:
This Rolls-Royce is part of a private collection. Although licensed and bonded. I am not a main-stream retail car dealer or broker; I am a professional car collector of some 30 years with considerable experience and knowledge of Rolls-Royce and Bentley Motor Cars. My passion and interest in Rolls-Royce started when this car was new. I have a long standing reputation being associated with the marque which I take seriously. I take pride in my cars and have fun in collecting and restoring them. However. auctions are not a game so when you place a bid or offer. and you are the winning bidder. please understand you have entered a binding contract. You cannot bid and win the auction and expect not to meet the terms and conditions. Bidding and/or winning does not mean you are expecting me to “hold” the car until you have the opportunity to inspect it. Any inspection contemplated should be undertaken BEFORE you bid or make an offer and I openly welcome any potential buyer to come and personally inspect the car. Once you bid or make an offer. you are doing so to buy WITHOUT conditions. Your bid can not be subject to anything. A $2000. 00 deposit (non-refundable) is required within 24 hours of the close of the auction and payable by PayPal. The balance of funds are required within 7 days of the close of the auction and must be provided by cashier's check or bank wire. I cannot accept PayPal for the balance. Full payment must be made (and payments cleared) before the title and/or the vehicle is released. All payments are non-refundable. Payments as described above form an important part of this purchase contract and so. if all the funds are not received as outlined above. I reserve the right to terminate the transaction without notice. If there has been any deposit or other part payments received and I elect to terminate the contract. I reserve the right to keep any such deposits or payments and resell the vehicle to another bidder or interested party or re-list the vehicle at any time. To be clear. if you change your mind for ANY reason and do not complete the transaction in the time-frame required. you will forfeit your deposit. I am happy to assist with shipping arrangements on a national and worldwide basis but the winning bidder takes full responsibility for pickup and/or shipping and at his cost.
As a collector and experienced restorer of the marque. I make every effort to bring my cars to a high standard. By comparison. my cars are generally superior to others available but they are by no means perfect. You must expect some issues. Unless specifically stated. the car is not of show standard but of nice "driver" condition. Please understand. show cars of this model cost hundreds of thousands of dollars to achieve and sell for prices commensurate. so the sale price of this car reflects its relative condition. You are buying "condition" accordingly. Buyers should not expect to receive concours quality or "perfect" cars at these prices. Please also understand. the very nature of these classic Rolls-Royces is such that it is not always possible to attend to every item. or perhaps I may have inadvertently overlooked items. Further. and very importantly. these cars are classic cars also because they are old. So this means a 35 year old car is predominantly comprised of 35 year old parts. And old parts will fail. All buyers must understand and expect that things can or will wear out. break and/or stop functioning without notice. This is even more likely with hand-built English cars of early technology when compared to the typical American car of the same vintage. Please note. fitted radio/stereo systems are usually subject to upgrade by purchasers so I do not ensure operation of these. Similarly. cruise control systems fitted to these classics were of an inferior design and I do not check or warrant the operation of these. Suspension and brakes on these cars are complex. We thoroughly check them and replace things that are identified faulty. But please understand. by example; if we change a brake line because it appears aged or faulty. we do NOT at the same time replace all other hoses because they are of similar age. This is considered "preventative maintenance". We do not do this unless specifically requested and is not included in the purchase price. Feel free to ask for this additional service. Further. a feature or function that is working perfectly one moment. may decide to play-up the next. After all. it is some 41 years old. This is the nature of any classic car and especially a Rolls-Royce which was very "complicated" for its era. For this reason it is necessary for the following condition:
The vehicle is being sold "as-is/where-is" with no warranty expressed. written or implied. Any descriptions or representations are made with reasonable judgment and all efforts are made to ensure fair assessment and accuracy but they are for descriptive and identification purposes only and are not to be construed as a warranty of any type. The seller shall not be responsible for errors in description. authenticity. genuineness. or defects herein and makes no warranty in connection therewith. If any aspect of the description contradicts what can be seen in the photos. then the photos shall prevail as the reference point. No allowance or set aside will be made on account of any incorrectness. unforeseen imperfection. defect or damage. It is the responsibility of the buyer to have satisfied himself as to the condition and value and to bid based upon that judgment solely. The seller shall and will make every reasonable effort to disclose any known defects at the buyer's request prior to the close of the auction. Seller assumes no responsibility for any repairs regardless of any written or oral statements about the vehicle. Being a classic car in excess of 10 years of age. in most US states. the mileage may be recorded as “exempt”. In this regard the seller makes no warranties as to the accuracy of the mileage indicated or shown. I can hold the vehicle up to 30 days while you arrange shipping but you must immediately insure it. I will not bear any responsibility for any additional costs including storage. transportation. or repair after the close of the auction. Whereas I am happy to store the car in excess of 30 days from auction end. a cost of $35 per day shall apply beyond 30 days of auction end. Also. you must remember that this is a classic +/-35 year old vehicle. and while it is up to you. I do not recommend that you just “hop in and drive it across the country”until you have familiarised yourself with the car. At least. I have never done that. I have always professionally transported the cars in enclosed carriers from where I bought them to my home.
PLEASE; IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO ABIDE BY THESE TERMS. CONTACT ME BEFORE YOU BID AS. RESPECTFULLY. THERE CAN BE NO EXCEPTIONS.
I am sorry if these terms seem harsh but there seem to be some very unrealistic buyers out there - fortunately. only few of these people exist but those that do can make life difficult. so it appears EVERYTHING needs to spelled out. Very simply put. this is an old car being offered for sale. It is not new and is subject to the perils of age. Further. Rolls-Royces are not without nuances. idiosyncrasies and they are renown for a host of design issues which can make them not inexpensive to maintain. This is well documented in many circles. You need to be a special and considerate type of purchaser to own a Rolls-Royce. Their down-side is part of the fun in owning them! As the old saying goes; "we love to hate them and hate to love them!" So. please respect the terms and conditions when you bid.
~~ **Please note: This Rolls-Royce is part of the collection of the Park-Ward Motor Museum. As a professional collector and experienced restorer. I have my own Rolls-Royce dedicated workshop with qualified craftsmen on hand. As a passionate collector of the marque I take great pride and pleasure in passing on any of my cars to its next owner (“caretaker”). In so doing. once this Rolls-Royce is sold. I will put the car back thru my workshop to ensure that it is mechanically sound and all major features and functions are operating as described even though the car is contractually being sold "as-is". Certain items such as final electrical tests and hydraulic pressure checks are usually left for this stage as these are considered "commissioning procedures". This and considerable other work will be performed after the sale and before delivery. This is all done at NO CHARGE. Who else selling a Rolls-Royce on eBay does this?! Depending on our work load. please allow approximately 7-10 business days for this procedure. For more information on the Park-Ward Motors Museum and our skills. please ebay message me and I would be happy to show you some 100 Rolls-Royces restored to varying levels over the last few years ~~
Rolls-Royce values vary wildly. entirely dependent on their condition. There are. of course. other aspects that add or subtract from their values – Long Wheel Base versus regular. the year which dictated certain technical changes. etc. The colour alone. for example can make a big difference. So for the benefit of new-comers to the marque please see the approximate guide to values based on a particular model below. Please remember. these are “plus-or-minus” figures:
Model: Silver Shadow II
Show car: $45. 00+
Exceptional: $30-40. 00
Excellent: $25-30. 00
Good: $18-25. 00
Average: $12-18. 00
Fair: $6-12. 00
Basket case: < $6. 00
Hopefully this will provide a reference point for the Rolls-Royce being featured in this listing as it compares to the range of different condition examples. Please note. a very poor condition example that is tired and not maintained can easily demand some $30. 00 in restoration to make it a "nice" example but remember. it will be no longer original. So don't be fooled by "cheap buys". For any specific questions about this unique example of a Rolls-Royce. please do not hesitate to contact me.
