"A car that is in visually excellent condition but needs a service and brake check as it has not been driven for several years."


Bought by the current owner for his collection in 2002 and driven sparingly for a few years. As the paint had faded and cracked in some areas, he decided to have it repainted in its original color. All moldings and details were removed, and the car's body was sanded down and given a fresh coat of paint. Since then, the car has mostly been stored in a heated garage and has not been on the roads since 2014.

  • Mechanical condition:

    The engine runs smoothly without any strange noises, but it needs a service as it is running lean. The brake pedal goes down a long way.

  • Interior condition:

    Very nice original interior with few signs of use.

  • Exterior condition:

    The car was professionally painted about 15 years ago and has hardly been driven since. It has been parked in a heated garage all this time and the paint is still in excellent condition. The chrome is in very good shape. The rims, tires, and other external equipment are without any flaws.

  • General condition:

    Translate to English: A pompous Rolls that, after a service, becomes a comfortable luxury car to enjoy.

Facts about the model

Silver Shadow became somewhat of a turning point for Rolls-Royce. Tradition dictated that the finest brands were only sold as chassis, which were then dressed by external coachbuilders. But this was an expensive and complicated process, and now this prestigious profession was dying out. After sixty years of the tradition of offering bodywork on a frame, Rolls-Royce shocked the establishment in 1965 with a new modern car with a self-supporting body.

But time showed that they had made the right decision. In 15 years, they built more Silver Shadows than Rolls-Royce cars had been built since its inception in 1904. The new model worked so well that it was not until 1977 that it was upgraded to the Silver Shadow II. In 1980, a new generation of Rolls-Royce and Bentley models arrived, but the Shadow somehow hung on for a while longer - in the form of the Corniche convertible. It was built until 1996.

  • At this auction, many vehicles have been included in car collections and have been stored (mothballed) for a long time. For this reason, they are described from a collector's perspective and may need technical reviews and maintenance service - oil, battery replacement, new tires, brake review, etc. - before they can be used. .
  • During the auction days information about a vehicle may be updated up to the day before the auction ends. When you bid at the end of the auction period - and also if you have made an earlier bid - we therefore ask you to read the descriptions carefully, in case something has been changed due to new information.
