1976 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow
Warranted 78,000 miles from new

Estimated at £9,000 - £11,000

Lot details

Registration No: OKM 499P
Chassis No: SRH23935
MOT: Exempt

  • A sought after, late Series I 'flared wheelarch' model (designed to accomodate radial tyres)
  • Finished in the striking combination of Sable over Mink with whitewall tyres
  • Said to be in 'good overall' condition and to 'drive nicely'
  • Warranted 78,000 miles from new with supporting documentation

Launched in 1965, the Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow was a bold departure for the Crewe company. Their first monocoque design, it also benefited from olio-pneumatic rear suspension, power disc brakes and GM's silken 400 series automatic gearbox (though, the latter was not adopted until 1968). Such 'new technology' did not encroach on the luxurious interior with its sumptuous leather hides, rich wood veneers and deep lambswool carpets. Performance from the smooth 6230cc V8 engine (upgraded to 6750cc in 1970) 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.

Initially road registered as ‘HSE 100’ on March 1st 1976, chassis SRH23935 saw comparatively little use over the next twenty-one years such that it was sold by renowned marque specialist Sargeants of Goudhurst with a warranted mileage of 16,202 during May 1997. The purchaser, P.J. Orriss Esq of Crawley Down, parted with his Rolls-Royce Corniche Fixed Head Coupe and £4,600 in order to obtain the Silver Shadow which he had maintained by West Hoathly Garage and Sargeants of Goudhurst. The latter subsequently supplied ‘OKM 499P’ to its next custodian, Steven Lovegrove Esq of Richmond, who initially used them for servicing before calling upon the services of Nigel Sandell (another Rolls-Royce specialist) to look after the luxury saloon. Invoices on file show that Mr Lovegrove covered some 52,000 miles aboard the Silver Shadow (increasing its odometer reading from 18,000 to 70,000) spending thousands of pounds in terms of brake, suspension and steering work not to mention attention to the sills and a conversion to R134A gas for the air-conditioning etc. Originally finished in Pewter but now resplendent in Sable over Mink, ‘OKM 499P’ appears to pleasingly retain its factory-fitted Magnolia leather upholstery. The door cappings have self-evidently been refurbished, while the wood veneers to the fascia are no longer perfect. Now showing a warranted 78,000 miles to its odometer, the Silver Shadow started readily and ran well during our recent photograph session. Offered for sale with V5C Registration Document and history file.
