Description

BEAUTIFULLY RESTORED ROLLS, 6.75 LITRE V8, AUTO, FRESH INTERIOR/WOOD, LOADED LWB

Despite what you see on TV and in movies, the Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow II is still the ultimate display of wealth. Not "just won the lottery" wealth, not "NBA rookie" wealth, but the kind of old-school money that extends back generations. No other car quite delivers the heavy-duty wallet slap that this long-wheelbase 1971 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow does and you don't have to worry, because we won't tell anyone just how affordable it really is.

Rolls-Royce would have painted your Shadow any color you wanted, but they really preferred subtlety to flash, and this handsome two-tone Silver Shadow is about as flashy as it gets. Still in great condition, it has a soft gloss that looks expensive and doesn't hide any bodywork or accident repairs. And as you'd expect from the world's finest automaker, the gaps are tight, the sheetmetal simply FEELS substantial, and the finish work is exemplary. It's not perfect, not after 45 years, but this is still a very impressive motorcar. Nobody else does chrome as well as the British, either, with just the right amount to imply wealth and sophistication without going overboard, so you get a tidy strip along the sides of the body, simple bumpers, and, of course, that towering Rolls-Royce grille shell that is perhaps the most definitive in all of motoring history. No goofy padded roof, no dated 1970s colors, and no questionable repairs make this car an A-list celebrity, even today.

The gorgeous Delta Blue interior is understated and beautifully done, and you should know that Connolly leather was prized by motoring enthusiasts as far back as the 1910s. Aside from some light wear on the driver's seat, the interior is in exemplary condition for its age and showcases genuine hand craftsmanship and the finest natural materials in the world. The wool carpets are deeper and plusher than the stuff in your living room and everything that looks like wood really IS wood, all cut from the same tree to ensure uniformity of color and grain and recently restored to a brilliant gloss. Everything was standard, too, including electric windows and locks, A/C, cruise control, and power seats, which for 1971 was quite a list of features. The original AM/FM radio remains in the dash and is augmented by a hidden Kenwood AM/FM/CD head unit with upgraded speakers, but otherwise it is factory-original and splendidly maintained. Even the trunk is outfitted with plush, expensive carpets that are bound in leather, more proof that good taste knows no boundaries.

The massive "six-and-three-quarter" liter V8 engine runs superbly thanks to a comprehensive mechanical restoration by Donald Lower Coachworks. That work included the engine, transmission, brakes, hydraulics, and A/C system. It couldn't have been an inexpensive task given the complexity of the machinery, but it does mean that you can enjoy this car without worries. As the saying goes, an inexpensive Rolls-Royce is the most expensive car you can own, so keeping this one in top condition will cost you far less than bringing a broken one back from the dead. In truth, these are truly reliable machines in their own right and the brawny V8 moves the big sedan without apparent effort. The GM-sourced TH400 3-speed automatic transmission is, of course, bulletproof and the fully independent suspension with disc brakes all around gives this 5500-pound luxury sedan rather agile handling. Most importantly, the complex braking system was completely serviced, and the underside looks as though it's spent its life someplace warm. 205/75/15 Uniroyal whitewall radials have been fitted and the understated hubcaps are the smart choice.

Look like a millionaire for pennies on the dollar, but you may also find that this is a fun car that's quite enjoyable to own if you love to drive. Call today!
