This classic, elegant, early LHD 1967 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow has been very well preserved –nearly fully restored, is in great driving condition, and now for sale in. Its owners of 30 years are Rolls/Bentley collectors, show judges, and vintage auto appraisers who’ve been members of the RROC for 40+ years.
Purchased in 1989 with approx. 23,000 miles, this Silver Shadow has had regular usage as well as nearly a full restoration since –at a cost over $40,000. The engine, interior, hydraulics, brakes, and paint have all been professionally redone over the past 30 yrs./16,000 miles, with only about 500 miles on the engine rebuild. Currently showing under 39,000 original miles.
The current owner has known and personally driven this Rolls at least 12 times in the past 8 years, it has always been a very smooth, solid, powerful and well-driving car, with all systems in good working order.
In Sept. 2019 the brakes were fully redone with new master cylinder, fluid flush, and a full tune-up was done, she runs and drives wonderfully -and is now ready for a new owner to enjoy.
The full engine rebuild was done in 2008 at 38,340 at over $15,000. A new 4-row radiator was installed in 2006, and hoses, shocks, starter motor, brake calipers, hydraulic lines, were all replaced around that time as well. The alternator, accumulators, fuel pump, and various switches, etc. also rebuilt or replaced. The aluminum rear cross-member was replaced with the stronger/later version with HD bolts. Request/see photo list of repairs.
The entire interior was professionally redone in 2008 with beautiful grey Genuine Connelly leather throughout, as well as new carpet, and door panels. Nearly all of the interior wood was also stripped and refinished, all is in excellent (near-new) condition. All gauges, interior and exterior lights work as they should.
The exterior was professionally repainted after a full strip-down about 15 yrs. ago. The elegant classic 2-tone cream/grey does shine well.
