Lot details

Registration No: IOM-Reg
Chassis No: SRH10991
MOT: Exempt
Estimate: £7,000 - £8,000

Motor Car Location: Cheshire

  • Supplied new by Rossleigh Ltd to Cambridge Electrics Ltd of Glasgow and pleasingly retains its original book pack and factory guarantee letter etc
  • Believed to have covered just 41,000 miles from new based on the condition of its original interior and its residency on the Isle of Man since 1979
  • Recently recommissioned and serviced following a period of dry storage

Launched in 1965, the Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow was a bold departure for the Crewe-based company. Their first monocoque design, it also benefited from oleo-pneumatic rear suspension, power disc brakes and, from 1968, GM's silken 400 series automatic gearbox. Such 'new technology' did not encroach on the luxurious interior with its sumptuous leather hides, rich wood veneers and deep lambswool carpets. Though smaller than the Silver Cloud III, it possessed greater space and boasted far more contemporary looks. At launch, it was powered by a 172bhp V8 engine of 6,230cc, though this was enlarged to 6,750cc during 1970. Performance from the smooth V8 engine was assured, the car wafting forward on a seemingly unstoppable wave of torque. Still immensely cosseting to drive, Shadows offer a genuinely different ownership experience to their mass-made peers.

Supplied new by Rossleigh Ltd to Cambridge Electrics Ltd of Glasgow, this low mileage example pleasingly retains its original book pack and factory guarantee letter etc. The car is believed to have had just two owners (unfortunately this is not document supported) and to have covered just 41,000 miles from new, based on the condition of its original interior and its residency on the Isle of Man since 1979. Recently recommissioned and serviced following a period of dry storage, the vendor currently rates the bodywork, engine and interior trim as “very good,” the electrics and gearbox as “excellent” and the paintwork as “average”, although the brakes will require some attention as part of further recommissioning.

Vendor Condition Ratings:

Bodywork: 'Very Good’
Engine: 'Very Good'
Electrical Equipment: 'Excellent'
Paintwork: ‘Average'
Gearbox: 'Excellent'
Interior Trim: 'Very Good'
