West Coast Classics are proud to present an exceptionally well maintained and very collectible example of this simply stunning all original survivor and original southern California Palm Desert 1976 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow with only 36K original miles and finished in original factory 'Walnut Bronze Metallic' paint and matching Rolls Royce hubcaps and with beautiful original 'Tan' Connolly leather hides with 'Dark Brown' piping and full Fawn carpeting and original Mohair headliner.
The original factory paintwork is in extraordinarily very fine condition and all the chromework, including the Rolls Royce grille, is absolutely outstanding and virtually flawless! The interior is completely original condition throughout with it's original leather seats in very fine condition with only very patina. The leather dashboard is also original in exceptional condition (always garaged from the sun) and the original mohair wool headliner is still virtually as new. The original and magnificent burled walnut woodwork is also in very fine condition throughout. All the power options and electric windows are working as they should as is the air conditioning.
The car was serviced in recent years at the renown European Rolls-Royce/Bentley/Jaguar specialists 'Edmunds' of Palm Desert, California with a very recent 3,000 miles service at 35,903 miles. Records available. The car will be sold with it's original factory sheepskin rugs, owners manual and full set of unused factory tools.
This well maintained Rolls Royce engine runs extremely strong and these cars are not slow - the engine purrs like a kitten, never stalls or idles rough and is extremely reliable - 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 is truly a sensual car that you can drive with your fingertips, smooth and relatively silent, it's 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 it's torque and brilliant turning radius!
This particular model drives particularly well and must be both seen and driven to be fully appreciated. Without a doubt you will look long and hard to find a finer example of this rare and very collectible and super striking 1976 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow, a completely original example oozing pride of ownership and obviously always garaged with no accidents and no rust and always owned since new by only very particular southern California owners - never abused!
For those who are unfamiliar, Rolls Royce no longer exists as it had for over one hundred years. This is 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 today's 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 world's finest automobiles - a great investment for the Rolls Royce enthusiast or collector or simply an outstandingly striking example of a very rare and unusual Rolls Royce for the discerning luxury classic car owner!
