Lot details

Registration No: XUV971T
Chassis No: SRH37553
MOT: April 2021

Motor Car Location: Cheshire

  • 38,000 recorded miles and recently fully recommissioned
  • Full main dealer history up to 2006 and still retains its original suppling dealer stickers
  • Believed when Ex-President Jimmy Carter stayed with the previous owner the Rolls was available for his use

Finished in Peacock Blue Metallic with Magnolia hide and Blue Carpets trimmed in magnolia with Black Dash Roll, this Shadow II registers some 38,000 miles and has recently been fully recommissioned having been in storage since 2006 which has included the brakes being overhauled and a full service. We are advised the car benefits from a full main dealer history up to that time and still retains its original suppling dealer stickers, with the original plates accompanying the car. A current MOT to April 2021 with original handbooks and service book are also present. Its understood that when Ex-President Jimmy Carter stayed with the previous owner during a fishing trip and the Rolls was available for his use.

The combination of changes to the original Silver Shadow introduced in 1977 was sufficient for Rolls-Royce to dub the new model `Shadow II'. The upgrades included a switch to rack-and-pinion steering, revised front end suspension geometry, new carburettors, and revised exhaust and cooling fans all aimed at improving fuel consumption. More visible alterations included rubber-tipped bumpers, a deeper radiator shell and door handles with more deeply recessed buttons. Still more evident was the bib spoiler below the front bumper and new style (spring-back) door mirror that was adjustable from inside the car.

 

All successful bids must be paid in full by midday the day after the auction at the latest.

You can collect your new pride and joy from our venue until 1pm the day following the sale or our partners are on hand to help arrange safe transportation:
