Here is a really fine and original example of a Shadow I 1969 . Finished in Caribbean blue and hubcap beauty rings. The interior is finished in contrasting red leather .
This is an unmolested example that has been beautifully maintained and presents in excellent condition. This silver shadow 1 as benefitted from full body restoration and full respray . She has always been well maintained and serviced and comes with its original manual.

The Silver Shadow IIpresented here has been recently fully work-shop inspected and all work needed carried out. Important costly items such as the hydraulics and brakes have been fully inspected and thoroughly serviced as required. This included brake pumps, accumulators, calipers, all brake hoses and then final system pressure tested and bled. Everything mechanical and operational has been gone thru. It is ready to drive and enjoy. The odometer shows a low 77000 miles . It is very quiet and smooth on the road without any of the typical “thumps” and “rattles” typical of poor (or even averagely) maintained examples of this model.

The interior of this Shadow is close to perfect. The red Connolly hide leather is in absolutely outstanding condition with no tears nor fading and very supple and soft – true to its Connolly characteristics.

The burr walnut wood throughout the car is stunning. They are also completely original and have not been redone, They are not flawless (not a word you can use flippantly) but in excellent condition with only the most minor imperfections on the front door cappings. Certainly stunning for a 45 year old Rolls-Royce and by no means in need of redoing. The colour is deep, the grain rich and the finish smooth. By the delight of Mother Nature, there is a very interesting "face-like" pattern in the doors which is really charming.

The head lining is perfect no tears . The carpets are in good condition .

The body and paint finish is entirely consistent. When you look down the sides of the car, they are very straight and true. The paint presents beautifully with only the most minor little mark here and there from use and does have some of the Rolls-Royce signature hair-line paint fracturing at the base of the A & C pillar, but is otherwise entirely consistent with a low-mileage meticulously maintained example. (Rolls-Royce used lead to join body panels and because of the different metallurgic properties of lead, steel and aluminium, the expansion and contraction causes minor paint stresses over time. ALL Silver Shadows display this syndrome. These are very minor, however). If you did not know, you would think the car was repainted in the last 5 years - it is that good! Certainly, it needs nothing other than a wax from time to time.

The tyres are period correct . which drive smooth and comfortably but if you are planning long distance touring could do with replacing simply because of age (we are happy to arrange) but if you are intending to do basic "potting around", they are just fine. The hubcaps are excellent with no imperfections in the stainless or painted trim rings. They reflect like a mirror. The pin-striping on the beauty rings are finished in the original hand-painted technique. All remaining bright-work is in excellent condition as is glass, electrics and instruments. All electrics have been checked right down to the smallest and insignificant dash and courtesy light.

Under the bonnet, the presentation is amazingly clean and original. It has not been precision detailed but simply kept clean and tidy throughout its life.

The car has its original jack still in its factory original wax paper wrapper, correct tools and operating manual.the last owner owing the car 6 years with mots going back a decade . Tax free motoring . Body work stunning

The car is of very high standard and is an easy 10 out of 10 driver rating.

~~ This is immaculate and stately Shadow I is in excellent condition and a very fine representation of the marque that is ready to be driven and enjoyed. It makes for an excellent driver for either everyday driving or sunny weekend enjoyment. You could easily take her to your next Rolls-Royce meet and take a prize for originality! She is truly that just had new water pump and service .
