THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

'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.

This particular Silver Shadow was donated to the Rolls-Royce Foundation by a RROC member in 2014. Since that time, it has been used very little and stored at the foundation facility in Pennsylvania. The car overall presents well, wearing and older repaint with original blue interior. Due to its sparse use it is recommended that the car be check over by a Rolls-Royce specialist before being returned to the road.
