Silver Shadow


Well above average example ~ $50,000 restoration some 15 years ago
(non factory specification restoration)

Here is a very nice presenting Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow Long Wheel Base ("LWB") that would provide a good low-cost entry level to the marque. Especially considering how much was spent on her on an earlier restoration.

Finished in 2-tone Silver Sand metallic over burgundy metallic with a deep burgundy leather interior.

This example was an older restoration of some 15 years ago costing some $50,000.This Silver Shadow was completely and professionally repainted and all new interior done. All seats, door panels, arm-rests and finishings panels were redone in high quality, super soft Italian leather.And, although not done to factory specifications, does make for a very nice driver and an ideal VIP/wedding car.

Besides the paint, the restoration included, vinyl roof deletion, all new leather interior done in a more modern limo look, new suede-look head-liner, carpet and wood refinished. A set of extra-wide whitewall tyres fitted. Other additions included; apair of electric rear view mirrors (normally only 1x driver door mirror and manually adjusted on Silver Shadow), dark tintedwindows, badge bar and updated stereo system with high quality speakers correctly mounted in the door grills and a bass box professionally installed in the trunk.

This car was regularly maintained for the last 8 years by America's leading Silver Shadow specialist; Park-Ward Motors. This in itself assures you the car is in good mechanical and operating condition. See: www.park-ward.com - Work included regular maintenance of engine (all regular services), a lot of work on the hydraulics (new pumps and accumulators, hoses, calipers, etc) and all general major and minor services, as expected with good regular maintenance.
The car is not represented by Park-Ward because it falls out of the Company's commitment and dedication to original presenting cars but Park-Ward does assure us the car is a well and regularly maintained example. That all said, the car is offered 100% as-is with no warranty implied.

She is a nice example and can be immediately enjoyed and driven will all operational features in good condition; AC, heater, windows, seats, etc.

~~ A non-factory presenting example but otherwise in good overall clean condition, mechanically and operationally maintained by one of the best Silver Shadow experts. A great low-cost entry Rolls-Royce sedan. ~~

This Rolls-Royce is a consignment car offered for sale on behalf of a customer. Although licensed and bonded, I am not a main-stream retail car dealer or broker; I am a professional car collector of some 30 years with considerable experience and knowledge of Rolls-Royce and Bentley Motor Cars. I have a long standing reputation being associated with the marque which I take seriously. I take pride in my cars and have fun in collecting and restoring them. However, auctions are not a game so when you place a bid or offer, and you are the winning bidder, please understand you have entered a binding contract. You cannot bid and win the auction and expect not to meet the terms and conditions. Bidding and/or winning does not mean you are expecting me to “hold” the car until you have the opportunity to inspect it. Any inspection contemplated should be undertaken BEFORE you bid or make an offer and I openly welcome any potential buyer to come and personally inspect the car. Once you bid or make an offer, you are doing so to buy WITHOUT conditions. Your bid can not be subject to anything. A $2000.00 deposit (non-refundable) is required within 24 hours of the close of the auction and payable by PayPal. The balance of funds are required within 7 days of the close of the auction and must be provided by cashier’s check or bank wire. I cannot accept PayPal for the balance unless you are willing to meet the cost of transfer fees. Full payment must be made (and payments cleared) before the title and/or the vehicle is released. All payments are non-refundable. Payments as described above form an important part of this purchase contract and so, if all the funds are not received as outlined above, I reserve the right to terminate the transaction without notice. If there has been any deposit or other part payments received and I elect to terminate the contract, I reserve the right to keep any such deposits or payments and resell the vehicle to another bidder or interested party or re-list the vehicle at any time. To be clear, if you change your mind for ANY reason and do not complete the transaction in the time-frame required, you will forfeit your deposit. I am happy to assist with shipping arrangements on a national and worldwide basis but the winning bidder takes full responsibility for pickup and/or shipping and at his cost.

As a collector and experienced restorer of the marque, I make every effort to bring my cars to a high standard. By comparison, my cars are generally superior to others available. That said, this car is NOT one of my normal cars. It was maintained by us and all work, services and maintenance doen professionally. However, the car was restored well outside of factory specifications some years ago and although will appeal to some, purists will not appreciate the deviation from factory specifications. The car is not of show standard but of decent "driver" condition. Please understand, show cars of this model cost hundreds of thousands of dollars to achieve and sell for prices commensurate, so the sale price of this car reflects its relative condition. You are buying "condition" accordingly. Buyers should not expect to receive concours quality or "perfect" cars at these prices. Please also understand, the very nature of these classic Rolls-Royces is such that it is not always possible to attend to every item, or perhaps I may have inadvertently overlooked items. Further, and very importantly, these cars are classic cars also because they are old. So this means a 45 year old car is predominantly comprised of 45 year old parts. And old parts will fail. All buyers must understand and expect that things can or will wear out, break and/or stop functioning without notice. This is even more likely with hand-built English cars of early technology when compared to the typical American car of the same vintage. Please also understand, in terms of presenting the car for sale, by example; if we change a brake line because it appears aged or faulty, we do NOT at the same time replace all other hoses because they are of similar age. This is considered "preventative maintenance". We do not do this unless specifically requested and is not included in the purchase price. Feel free to ask for this additional service. Further, a feature or function that is working perfectly one moment, may decide to play-up the next. After all, it is some 45 years old. This is the nature of any classic car and especially a Rolls-Royce which was very "complicated" for its era. For this reason it is necessary for the following condition:

The vehicle is being sold "as-is/where-is" with no warranty expressed, written or implied. Any descriptions or representations are made with reasonable judgment and all efforts are made to ensure fair assessment and accuracy but they are for descriptive and identification purposes only and are not to be construed as a warranty of any type. The seller shall not be responsible for errors in description, authenticity, genuineness, or defects herein and makes no warranty in connection therewith. If any aspect of the description contradicts what can be seen in the photos, then the photos shall prevail as the reference point. No allowance or set aside will be made on account of any incorrectness, unforeseen imperfection, defect or damage. It is the responsibility of the buyer to have satisfied himself as to the condition and value and to bid based upon that judgment solely. The seller shall and will make every reasonable effort to disclose any known defects at the buyer’s request prior to the close of the auction. Seller assumes no responsibility for any repairs regardless of any written or oral statements about the vehicle. Being a classic car in excess of 10 years of age, in mostUSstates, the mileage may be recorded as “exempt”. In this regard the seller makes no warranties as to the accuracy of the mileage indicated or shown and accepts no responsibility for any discrepancy with independent reports such as Carfax, AutoCheck, etc.In this regard the seller makes no warranties as to the accuracy of the mileage indicated or shown. I can hold the vehicle up to 30 days while you arrange shipping but you must immediately insure it. I will not bear any responsibility for any additional costs including storage, transportation, or repair after the close of the auction. Whereas I am happy to store the car in excess of 30 days from auction end, a cost of $35 per day shall apply beyond 30 days of auction end. Also, you must remember that this is a classic +/-45 year old vehicle, and while it is up to you, I do not recommend that you just “hop in and drive it across the country”until you have familiarised yourself with the car. At least, I have never done that. I have always professionally transported the cars in enclosed carriers from where I bought them to my home.
I am sorry if these terms seem harsh but there seem to be some very unrealistic buyers out there - fortunately, only few of these people exist but those that do can make life difficult, so it appears EVERYTHING needs to spelled out. Very simply put, this is an old car being offered for sale. It is not new and is subject to the perils of age. Further, Rolls-Royces are not without nuances, idiosyncrasies and they are renown for a host of design issues which can make them not inexpensive to maintain. This is well documented in many circles. You need to be a special and considerate type of purchaser to own a Rolls-Royce. Their down-side is part of the fun in owning them! As the old saying goes; "we love to hate them and hate to love them!" So, please respect the terms and conditions when you bid.
