Hand-crafted by Mulliner Park Ward, the Silver Shadow Two-Door Saloon was introduced in 1966. The work of in-house stylist W.G. Allen, the saloon-cum-coupe boasted wonderfully sleek lines. Blending speed with refinement in a way that few rivals could match, it was powered by a 6230cc OHV V8 engine allied to automatic transmission. Trimmed with a superlative mix of sumptuous leather hides, rich wood veneers and deep lambswool carpets, the model was every bit as luxurious as it was expensive (an Aston Martin DB6 was relatively cheap by comparison). Despite being in production for five years, just 571 MPW Two-Door Saloons are thought to have been made.
Supplied new by Mead Cockshoot Ltd to J.R. Graham Esq of Prestbury, chassis CRH 8086 pleasingly retains its original service book, Rolls-Royce Warranty Card and even Radiomobile Car Radio Operating Instructions. Finished in the stunning combination of Silver Mink with a Dark Blue vinyl roof and Dark Blue leather upholstery, it must have cut quite the dash in 1970s Cheshire. Interestingly, one of the many MOT certificates on file was issued by Lex Mead Manchester on July 17th 1979 at 59,981 miles and between this and the various stamps across two service books, the vendor is confident that the Mulliner Park Ward Two-Door has covered just 78,300 miles from new. Treated to some £12,000 worth of fettling by David Dexters of Bridgnorth during 2014 including a major service, brake system overhaul, automatic gearbox repair and interior electrics trouble shooting, more recent work has seen the Rolls-Royce entrusted to E.L. Denney & Son for two new suspension pipes, a new offside rear ride height control valve and carburettor adjustment. Starting readily upon inspection and running well following a few years’ dry storage, ‘UFS 168H’ has been freshly serviced and is expected to possess a fresh MOT certificate by the time of sale.
