1977 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow
There is no more iconic symbol of luxury or accomplishment than a Rolls-Royce. A company, that has stood as the automotive gold standard for more than a century, building cars of unrivaled elegance and technical achievement. Released to the public in October 1965 was their most innovative model: The Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow I. It featured independent rear suspension with automatic level control, disc brakes all round and unitary construction. The model was under constant development resulting in a variety of improvements for the second generation, Silver Shadow II, from February 1977 onward.

This example, originally in olive green, but was painted in an Old English White some years ago, and is now showing signs of wear. The green interior trim and walnut veneer are in very good condition. Mechanically, the car has been well cared for and maintained over the years. It is solid, but not perfect.
