Description for Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow 1967

The crew from Crewe introduced their ultra modern Silver Shadow model in 1965 as a 4-door saloon. Compared to the Silver Cloud it was space age. Shortly thereafter, 2-door appeared, and-built at the rate of one to two per week by Rolls' subsidiary H.J. Mulliner, ark Ward of London. The demand was much higher than the supply for this car - with most people waiting over a year for theirs' to be hand-built.  Exact numbers are hard to establish, ut a noted Rolls Royce authority suggests that just 199 left hand drive examples of this gorgeous Coupé were made, ll for export, efore it was was given its separate name "Corniche" in 1971. All U. S. export models came with power windows and air conditioning.
This is a photo that was taken of this actual car for sale soon after it was purchased in 1967. It was highly esteemed by its owner, wealthy lady who loved the best. (click on any picture to enlarge)

After nearly 50 years the car still draws enormous attention. It has traveled less than 88,000 miles - or less than 2,000 miles per year. The owner did not like the winters in the Northeast so she would have her chauffeur drive her to Bal Harbour Florida each winter in the car. The sticker is still on the windshield for the prestigious Bal Harbour Tower condo that she owned.

The GM 400 transmission that Rolls Royce used shifts beautifully and the Coupe drives like the beautiful motorcar that it is. The wood is spectacular. The leather interior and wool carpeting are all original and in excellent shape. This speaks to the care that this car was given. The brakes have been done. The car has been tuned. A brand new $200 battery has been installed. All fluids have been changed. The passengers window motor has been replaced. 
 Is it perfect? No, ut for a 48 year old rolling piece of art there is nothing that will cause you to lose sleep at night. There are very few dings, ost of which could be handled with paintless dent removal, ut the elegance of a timeless work of art rolling down the road is still there. There is a lot of life left in the paint.  The front bumper could be re-chromed. The wind screen seals could be replaced. The car is worthy of a simple, ympathetic refresh. You won't need to touch the expensive Connolly upholstery or the burl elm wood - they are both well preserved.  How many opportunities are there to own a car with a pedigree?
 If you've been looking for a pedigreed early Rolls-Royce Coupé, ompletely hand-built by Mulliner Park Ward, ere's your golden opportunity.
