Classic Car Overview

This is a gorgeous 23,000 mile, nearly all original, 1973 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow Long Wheelbase Saloon without Division that has won nearly every award available from the RROC and a First Junior Award at the Hershey AACA. Its present and third-owner is the Chief Judge of the RROC who owns Zenith Motor Company in Missouri. As such, this Silver Shadow is in fantastic mechanical condition with all the normal systems having been thoroughly rebuilt. The result is an incredibly original and low mile example that provides a near-new driving experience. This is the rare and desirable chrome bumper LWB model. This special-order Silver Shadow was ordered new through Ascot Import Cars, Inc. on August 8, 1972 by Mr. Richard Bojalad of Pennsylvania and Scottsdale, AZ. It was finally delivered on April 14, 1973, with its special order Coffee Bean Brown Paint (Paint Code 062-5039) with a matching Dark Brown Everflex (Code DH 5567) top. Its present owner has enjoyed the Shadow for the past ten years. By 2016, this Shadow had achieved its Senior status for concours judging with the RROC. At that event, this Shadow scored 492/500 points, attesting to its cosmetic and mechanical condition. It had accumulated 22,734 miles and was nearly all original. Today, it has accumulated 23,157 miles since new and is in the same remarkable condition. In addition, it has won the Rolls-Royce Award, the Royce Memorial Award, Best of Show Postwar and Best of prior Best in Show. The Coffee Bean Brown livery is simply stunning, appearing dark brown in the direct sunlight and black in the shade or evening light. The paint is all original except the hood has been repainted. There are a few very small flaws as shown in the photos, but they are only visible upon close inspection. The Dark Brown Everflex top is also original and in excellent condition today. The chrome and stainless steel are also in excellent condition. The interior is also all original, in its special-order Champagne Leather (VM 3099) that is in beautiful original condition. The leather is without any defects and is still fairly soft and supple with only minor creasing from its 23,000 miles of use. The leather has never been dyed or touched up. The original carpet is also in excellent condition and even the sheepskin mouton overlays are original, but are starting to show their age. The wood has some light cracking but overall is in beautiful condition. The dashpad and knee pad were custom ordered to be in Champagne leather rather than the customary black. It also features its original AM/FM Stereo and separate 8-track cassette player. The engine compartment and undercarriage are in very nice original condition and well detailed for show. Its present owner rebuilt all the hydraulics, suspension, brakes and other common areas of maintenance for the Silver Shadows. This Shadow is now a trouble-free and beautiful example, whether for the show field or for touring. Everything works as it should. During our test drive wit
