The Background

Originally launched in 1965 this two tonne car holds the road well and is the ultimate luxury cruiser. Inside the cabin is more or less silent as you drive along the road.

Over the years with the newer models, the steering and suspension were improved for better handling. Power assisted disk brakes all round were added to improve performance and stopping power. With ample space inside, complemented with plush leather seats, and a superb high up driving position, you have the feeling of comfort, safety and style.

The History

A Beautiful example of a big Luxury Car The Silver Shadow mark 2 is a beautiful example of British quality and luxury motoring.

The current owner has had the car for the last 8 years and has lavished it with much love and attention. Having been in the care of waterside classics for significant aesthetic work costing in the region of £15,000 the vendor firmly believes it is the finest example of its kind in the country.

The Paperwork

There is a significant amount of receipts and paperwork available with an impressive collection of MOT certificates and receipts for work carried out on the car along with the V5 registered to the vendor.

It's also got a fresh MOT valid until the 10th of November of 2022.

The Interior

As you open the door you are met with a beautiful smell of leather and luxurious comfortable seats and fully adjustable front arm rests. The carpets are reasonable and the dashboard and clocks are in very nice condition.

There are some signs of wear on the driver's seat but nothing too bad considering its age. The carpet shows some signs of wear around the driver's footwell area. Some age related damage to the wood trim in some of the top door trim.

The Exterior

It must be one of the best colour choices for this superb car!

Looking at the body panels there are no signs of dings or dents. The paintwork is very nice all round and had from what we can tell a full repaint and also new sills, arches and inner wings. The chrome grill and chrome all round looks fantastic and really compliments the colour of the car.
All the wheels and tyres are in good condition with a good tyre tread all round.

There are some very small marks on the bonnet, two small stone chips, and at the rear of the car, above the silver shadow badge a small rust bubble under the paintwork.

On close up inspection there appears to be some paint ingress on the rubbers around the windows, but not noticeable from 2-3 feet away.

The Mechanics

As you would expect from a Rolls Royce the engine bay is a work of art. The sound of the six litre V8 engine sounds fantastic. The engine bay is clean and tidy and it looks like a well serviced engine overall. Solid in construction and appearance. 

All electrics have been overhauled , wheels been aligned, brake and hydraulic fluids serviced during engine service in April 21, It has also a new battery , new starter motor, replacement heater unit.  The seller also fitted a complete manual kill switch in the boot which is utilised when the car is laid up in the winter, while garaged is always kept on a trickle chargers.

As we didn't have access to a ramp, the underside could not be fully inspected but given the work done by Waterside Classics, we can only assume it is tip top.

If you are in the market for one of these beautiful examples, you will not be disappointed at the presence and grace this stunning car has.

Driving this car makes you feel special, safe and secure on the road. It's also a real head turner and boasts a huge boot to carry your luggage on a long journey.

The Rolls Royce automatic gearbox gives a buttery smooth driving experience leaving you feeling as if you are floating along the road. Overall a beautiful example of British engineering at its finest.

About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.
Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.


C&C prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.
Auctions are extended by 5-minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
  • If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
    • Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
    • We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.

Bid Amount Increment
£0 to £10,000 £100.00
£10,000 to £50,000 £250.00
£50,000+ £500.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.
You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.
