This Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow 1A was supplied new to the proprietor of Northern Caravans in Cheadle Hulme, Cheshire, and first registered on October 4th 1974. It must have been a wonderful and striking sight to have seen this car arrive outside the front door on that autumn day in 1974 with its Peacock Blue paint and Magnolia leather interior. Maintained for the first fourteen years of its life by the Rolls-Royce factory service department in Crewe, one judges by the generously sized history folder and handbook pack which accompany the car that it has been much loved by its three recorded owners. There are a large number of expired MOT certificates on file from the early 1990's to the present day. The vendor, a life-long enthusiast of the marque, describes the bodywork, paintwork, engine and gearbox as all being in 'excellent' condition following a recent £8,000 expenditure at a leading Rolls-Royce specialist, and a recorded mileage of only 74,442 miles. He also describes the interior as being 'in show condition' with its apparently optional black bulls eye dash board air vents and star burst walnut.
