Classic Car Overview

West Coast Classics are proud to present an exceptionally well maintained and very rare and collectible example of this original owner 1979 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow II with only 45K original miles and finished in a gorgeous and very striking Horse Chestnut Metallic (9510315) factory color paint with painted pin stripes and with a beautiful all original Beige (VM3234) Connolly leather hides interior and matching carpeting with original factory sheepskin rugs and footrests! The paintwork is in superb condition and the chrome-work, including the Rolls Royce grille and both bumpers, is also in absolutely outstanding condition. The Tan leather interior is virtually flawless and in truly superb all original condition with the original mohair headliner is also in exceptional condition. The original and magnificent burled walnut woodwork is also in very fine condition throughout and all the power options and electric windows are working as they should, as is the air conditioning. The car has its original owners manual and all the supplements, as well as its original jack and tools and has 45,906 original miles The cars original purchase price would have been just over $65,614 ($296,512 in 2024 dollars!) This 1979 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow II sedan boasts recent service records over the past 6 months, totaling more than $30,000 and with all new tires, brakes, fuel system, tune-up, all fluids, belts and hoses, as well as a rebuild of the air-conditioning system, flush of the gas tank, and cleaning and servicing of the fuel system. A few years ago we had previously sold Jack Paars (the legendary comedian and host of the Tonight Show from 1957-62, preceding Johnny Carson) original U.S specification example (Left Hand Drive Model) 1963 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud III, which had been imported to the U.S. from England to New York and delivered to the Rolls Royce dealership of J.S. Inskip, Inc who had ordered the car for the legendary Jack Paar. Mr Paar owned that car for twenty-one years before selling it in 1984 to only its second ever owner who lived in southern California and who had owned the car prior to our purchasing it. Jack Paars wife had purchased this 1979 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow II for her husband and he had kept it until his death in 2004 at the age of 85 and it will be sold with the original owners manuals, registrations and recent service history. It was purchased by the renown TV talk show hosts wife as a gift for her husband and would stay in the family until after his death in 1994 and then pass to the family, from whose estate the car was recently acquired. This obviously well maintained Rolls Royce must still run the same as when new - the engine purrs like a kitten, there is plenty of power to pull away at the lights and it cruises at high speeds with absolute ease. The transmission shift is almost imperceptibly smooth and the temperature always remains cool. The Silver Shadow II is truly a sensual car that you can drive with your fingertips, smooth and relatively silent, its thoroughly therapeutic for both drivers and passengers. The delightful precision action of the electrically powered steering column gear change and the ultra light weighted power steering allows one to park this 5000lbs of pure luxury with literally one finger and this long but actually quite slender car is anything but ponderous thanks to its torque and brilliant turning radius! This exceptional example with only some 45K original miles in this striking color combination with such a storied history must be both seen and driven to be fully appreciated. Without a doubt you will look long and hard to find a finer example increasingly very collectible 1979 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow II model available anywhere. Always garaged and covered with no accidents and obviously always cherished since new by its owners! For those who are unfamiliar, Rolls Royce no longer exists as it had for over one hundred years. This is the one of the last in the original line of cars hand built in the legendary Rolls Royce factory in Crewe, England with a quality and craftsmanship that far surpasses that of todays mass produced models with many BMW parts - this is indeed a rare opportunity to own a piece of automotive history, from a time when Rolls Royce was truly building the worlds finest automobiles - a great investment for the Rolls Royce enthusiast or collector or simply an outstandingly and striking example of a very rare and unusual Rolls Royce with 45K original for the discerning luxury classic car owner!
