Classic Car Overview

This 1979 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow II has a hand-crafted robust quality everywhere you look. And rolling opulence also means not skipping all the best luxury features, like air conditioning and one of the smoothest rides youll ever experience. So as you look over the whole well-preserved nature of this sedan, you see that its all about announcing the upper class has arrived... well even promise to keep the secret of how affordable it really is. The impressiveness of this particular car starts with its history. It has been under the care of the same owner for over 35 years. The low odometer is even believed to reflect the full actual mileage. So you can understand that averaging only about 450 miles annually means this one only left the garage for special occasions. And when it does go out, it certainly causes a stir. The Claret Red paint is one of the boldest colors you could get from Rolls-Royce, and so that means its both vivid and dignified. It has the right look of originality where you can see that there has been proper care in maintaining a good shine. This is the one company that has always wanted to deliver the coach-built experience, and so they pay careful attention to the body. Thats why the lines still look terrific today. The angular hood sets your attention to the Spirit of Ecstasy mascot; the rear fenders have a crisply pointed look; and the tan pinstripe is almost like an unbroken line that runs the full profile of the car. Its a total package that reminds you elegance came as standard, right down to the factory wheel covers that have a color-match insert for the paint and pinstriping. The craftsmanship continues inside. Rolls-Royce has hand-rubbed wood surfaces and individually stitched leather seats from the finest cowhides. So its a true treat to have this so original and preserved over 40 years later. Its a testament to both the good care of this sedan and how true quality endures. True luxury also means letting someone or something do the work for you. Thats why there are power windows and power front seats. The air conditioning is blowing nice and cold, so you always arrive looking comfortable. Plus, this has terrific vintage touches in this well-preserved interior to impress classic car fans. One example is how the Silver Shadow II has an improved interior layout factory Blaupunkt AM/FM radio but to add a cassette player (cutting edge for 1979) it needed to be lower in the dash. And because a car like this is made to be shared with the right family and friends (and chauffeur) the rear is also treated to true luxury comfort with supple seating, a fold-down armrest, and plenty of legroom. The 6.75-liter V8 under the hood is a staple of Rolls-Royce luxury, and this has the crisp look of a well-maintained package. The motor was engineered to always have power in reserve, and fuel injection means steadfast luxury. It was built for an easy trip near or far thanks to a three-speed automatic transmission, cruise control, supple ride of the fully independent hydro-pneumatic suspension. The Silver Shadow II is known for the better handling of the power rack & pinion steering, and it stays sure-footed with four-wheel power disc brakes. The sale comes complete with the owners manual and service manuals. This is an exceptionally well-preserved example of the luxury you always wanted. So if you understand timeless elegance, call today!
