Description for Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow 1966

This is a very rare Silver Shadow coachbuilt 2-door coupe produced by James Young Coachbuilders in 1966. Only 35 of the 2-door model were ever produced. This is one of 25 right-hand drive models ordered and built for Donald L Nicholas of Gatehampton Manor, Goring-on Thames, England, a director of Timothy Whites & Taylors Ltd.
When the new Silver Shadow was introduced in 1965 it was only offered in the 4-door version. James Young would obtain a new 4-door model and convert it to a two door for those who desired a coupe. James Young only made 35 Rolls Royce and 15 Bentley conversions before ceasing production in 1967.
Car is in good condition and is as originally equipped with V8 and automatic transmission, electric windows and rear A/C that has recently been serviced. The car has not been altered. It has been repainted some years back and has only minor blemishes. The original radio is in place but does not work at this time, a CD player has been added in the cubby box but could easily be removed if desired. The original rear leather upholstery is in good condition but the front seats are worn and split in places. The wheel covers are correct and all the small and large tools are included as are all manuals. The hand brake cable needs to be replaced and it does not work at this time. I have owned this car for 17 years and have had much work done including brake pumps, accumulators, fuel pumps, exhaust system and transmission servo. The car runs well and is very sound, and rust is very minimal and I have extensive photos of the under carriage available. I also have the original build sheets from the RREC and sales invoice from Jack Barclay.
This is a very rare care and is highly collectable and sought after, I am only offering it for sale due to health reasons. I will be happy to answer all questions you may have.
