Seller's Notes

This is a stunningly presenting, fully restored and excellent condition Silver Shadow Long Wheel Base sedan. Finished in the very regal combination of black over burgundy with rich ochre-tan leather hides contrasted with black piping and matching carpets. It has a craftsman hand-painted single fine line to the waistlines finished in gold. The colour combination is quintessentially "Rolls-Royce" and hall-marks the tradition of those housed in the Royal Mews for Buckingham Palace. A truly splendid presenting example showing only some 23,400 miles.

Rolls-Royce Long Wheel Base ("LWB") sedans represent only 15% of all Silver Shadows made. They are 4" longer in the rear seat compartment offering considerably greater leg room for rear seat passengers. The LWBs are easily identified by the smaller rear "opera" window compared to the full-size rear glass on standard sedans and the standard fitment Everflex top.

This example has been in the hands of the right owners all its life having been care-taken in the last 15 years by a small but conscientious car collector and enthusiast who restored it to his personal taste and desires, whilst ensuring everything operated correctly and to factory specifications. All work was done very much on a "no expense spared" basis. The car has been minimally used and simply admired amongst an impressive collection of a range of cars.

Before the most recent owner having the opportunity meeting us, he had another highly regarded facility attend to a bare metal respray and the fitment of a rather unique heavy-grain vinyl top. The repaint was a superb job and included all new exterior rubbers and seals. $35,000 was spent on the exterior restoration and the high quality of the work is indisputable.

He then attended to the interior completely redoing all leather finishes in Connolly-like top quality hides. This includes seats, door panels, arm-rests, console and minor A, B and C pillar interior trim and sail panels. The final finish is overwhelmingly gorgeous with every single detail done in accordance with factory presentation. The cost was over $25,000. All the wood was refinished. This alone is spectacular with the car featuring the light African burl walnut which is as rich in depth and gloss as the car's exterior whilst carrying the ochre tones of the new leather. Added features included a centre console storage cocktail unit.

New Wilton wool carpets with correct leather binding were tailored and new lambswool moutons rugs adorn them. A factory correct pure wool headliner fitted. In total, some $40,000 spent on the interior alone. The finish is stunning. The feel of the leather is simply sumptuous and the "cologne" it releases; invitingly luscious. A unique 3-spoke leather wrapped steering wheel was procured and the car integrated with a current technology stereo system.

When the owner introduced the car to us some 6 years ago, our task was to make sure; "the car drives like new" and "to look every part of a new car". Park-Ward went through every single mechanical aspect to include engine, all hydraulics, suspension, exhaust, steering and tyres. Way too much to list here but we have all the records totaling some $25,000. Every operational feature was reviewed and serviced as required; windows, door locks, seats, AC, heater, right down to the most insignificant light bulb in the dash. The clock keeps perfect time and provides just the right amount "tick-tock"! I recall personally driving the car on many road tests and constantly tweaking and making minor improvements to get her "just right".
And that she is. Upon completion, we were able to deliver back to the owner a Silver Shadow LWB which, in our expert opinion, represents one of the nicest driving examples available and represents a matched experience of this model when brand new.

And if all this was not enough, we finished off the car by detailing the underside to ensure all presented like it did from new (new underbody schultz an
