1969 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow Coupé
Coachwork by H J Mulliner, Park Ward Ltd

Chassis no. CRX 7635
Engine no. CRX 7635
This rare European specification Silver Shadow Coupé (a two-door saloon in factory parlance) was originally ordered for use in Belgium and purchased new from Garage Novarobel SA in Brussels by Mr Francis Patriot, a true motoring enthusiast who used to participate in the 24 hours of Spa-Francorchamps driving a Citroën. The Rolls-Royce was always dry stored at his second home in Spa before being sold in 1981 to a Belgian Professor, Ludo Schellens, in Leuven. After approximately ten years the car was sold again, on this occasion to Garage Tombeke in Antwerp where it remained in storage for several years.

In 2009 the Rolls-Royce was bought by the last owner who re-commissioned it, though the car needed a lot of work to get it back on the road. The complete braking system was renewed, the engine and gearbox overhauled, ancillary drive belts replaced, a new starter motor fitted, and general servicing carried out (see parts invoices on file). The body has been freshly repainted in its original Seychelles Blue livery, the doors, hood and boot lid being removed to facilitate the process. The nicely patinated original grey leather interior was left untouched. Proprietor of a modern car dealership, the owner had the work carried out by his own mechanics so there are no invoices for labour.

Currently displaying a believed-correct total of circa 131,000 kilometres on the odometer, the car has not been registered since 1981 when Professor Schellens was the owner. Boasting a nice colour combination and still representing very good value for money, this exclusive Silver Shadow coupé comes complete with tool kit and is offered with Belgian registration papers and copies of the original sales invoice, warranty document and factory build sheets.
