The Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow was a striking change from the Silver Cloud the preceded it. It was smaller, square, and unprepossessing. The new Shadow was lighter, faster, and better handling than any Rolls-Royce produced before it, but the car never had the cachet of the early models. Starting out with the 200-hp, 6,230-cc V-8 from the Silver Cloud III, the engine was expanded to 6,750 cc in 1970. GM's Turbo Hydramatic 350, 3-speed automatic transmission was standard, except for the overseas models that got the Turbo Hydramatic 400. Power windows and four-wheel disc brakes were standard, and the rear suspension was self-leveling, based on the Citroen DS-19 hydraulic/hydrogen sphere system. As one might expect, the finish on the new cars was exemplary, with Connolly leather interior, lambs-wool carpet, and walnut dash and door trims, with full instrumentation.
This Silver Shadow presented here was originally sold new at Taylor Rolls Royce in Ft Lauderdale, Florida originally purchased by a resort to shuttle high end guests. In 1995 it was purchased and shipped up to Traverse City Michigan to be used as a vacation vehicle. This Rolls has had the same owner for the past 21 years. It was always serviced correctly, never in any accidents, never driven in the snow and rust free, shows that this car had a loving owner.
About 10 years ago the car was put into storage and just recently saw the light of day. Due that the car was sitting for the past ten years it was immediately sent out to be evaluated. About $1,500 was spent on rebuilding the brakes. The service shop did recommend that further brake work be performed before long distance travel, and we can provide current receipts and what is recommended.
Currently everything seems to work as it should. All gauges, lights inside and out, all power windows, wipers, radio, 8-track player and even the Air Conditioning blows cold. This is truly a stunning 65,000 mile Silver Shadow II that is aggressively priced.
