  • ‘To most people, a Rolls-Royce is the ultimate status symbol: you can aspire to nothing higher. Until you drive or even ride in one, it is difficult to appreciate how much lies behind the name. There are quieter cars, there are quicker cars but none cossets its occupants in quite the same manner, none insulates them from the outside world quite so effectively, to the point where rush-hour traffic jams, inclement weather and the other irritations of day-to-day living no longer seem to matter. On top of all this is the immeasurable pleasure offered by sheer unadulterated luxury of the sort that stems only from the use of the very best materials by the very best craftsmen. That is what the Silver Shadow is about.’ - Motor.
    Almost a quarter of a century after the last example left the Crewe factory, the Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow - one of this illustrious British company’s most successful models ever - remains an imposing and highly desirable motor car. Incorporating all the ‘Series II’ improvements, the most significant of which were power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering and split-level air conditioning, the car offered here is a very good example of the marque. ‘WWB 103S’ was purchased by the late vendor in 1989 for his wife’s use and has been maintained by Autocure on the Isle of Wight ever since. The car comes with a substantial file of history, including MoTs/tax discs dating back to 1986 and bills for an engine rebuild in 2003, since when circa 10,000 miles have been covered. Benefiting from a Harvey Bailey handling kit, ‘WWB 103S’ ran and drove well when inspected recently and is offered with MoT to 5th May 2009 and Swansea V5 registration document.
