Description

- Complete with original book pack
- Supplied with its original tool kit

The Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow is a luxury car that was produced in the United Kingdom in various forms from 1965 to 1980 which superseded the iconic Silver Cloud. It was the first Rolls-Royce to use unitary body and chassis construction, in response to concerns that the company was falling behind in automotive innovation.

‘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.

DD Classics is pleased offer this beautiful example finished in the lovely colour combination of Walnut over Nutmeg with Beige Connolly hide upholstery, stylish Burr Walnut and luxurious lambswool over rugs, it is a fabulous example that must be seen in the at the earliest opportunity. An extra touch of extravagance can be found adorning the grille; the stunning gold-plated Spirit of Ecstasy enhances the cars beautiful appearance.

This example was sold new by Jack Barclay and has since been carefully maintained, as evident in its stamped service book. Also accompanying the car is the original book pack and small tool kit. Our Silver Shadow II is a real pleasure to drive or be driven in, wafting along in unruffled silence with a softly undulating suspension it is a truly desirable opportunity for a discerning collector/driver.
