1977 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow II Rolls Royce has always had a reputation for superior engineering quality and created a luxury car that would stand the test of time. This British car manufacturing company put out a high quality product and was even responsible for setting land and air speed records back in the day. For many years in the automobile world, Rolls Royce was primarily building chassis with the bodies being left to specialist coach builders. The Silver Shadow however was one of the first totally Rolls Royce built cars and proved to be one of the most popular models they ever created. This Silver Shadow Saloon is a nice original car that has a fully documented history. It even comes with the original check lists in the construction and test records. The car was built in the Crewe, UK factory and from there was purchased in Zurich, Switzerland by a USA Diplomat. The original owner then relocated the car to New York where it was purchased by a 2nd owner who took the car to California and then Hawaii. There it was then used as part of a limo service. The current owner purchased the car 2.5 years ago and had it brought back to Texas. It is a nice running car that has been kept mostly original other than a few restored pieces here and there. It is coated in a nice White paint that looks perfect with the Tan vinyl top. All of the chrome and stainless is in good shape and all in place. One of the more unique features of the car is the power sunroof which was a rare factory option on these cars that you dont see very often. The original style wheels/hubcaps are found under all four corners and wrapped with tires that have plenty of life left. Powering the car is the original 6.75L V8 that starts up smoothly and runs well. This is paired with a GM sourced Turbo Hydramatic 400 automatic transmission which is the original set up. One of the more innovative features on the car is the high pressure hydraulic system that provides dual circuit braking and a rear hydraulic self-leveling suspension which helped to provide a very smooth ride. In 1977 these cars became the Silver Shadow II and one of the major changes included improved handling and rack and pinion steering. The interior is just as luxurious as you would expect with White upholstery with woodgrain accents throughout. The upholstery is showing minor signs of wear in spots but there is no rips, tears, or major damage. The front bucket seats are very comfortable and feature fold down arm rests. They sit to each side of the original center console which provides extra storage space. Being a luxury car the car is packed with all the power options you would expect including power windows and locks. The dash is all original with all of the factory knobs, gauges, switches, etc. The car also features heat/AC which is working but will need some tune-up in the near future. The carpeted trunk of the car provides plenty of storage space and houses the battery. This classic Rolls could be yours for $24,000.00!
