1980 Blue Rolls Royce Silver Shadow

Blackburn, United Kingdom


1980 Silver Shadow II, stunning Caribbean blue, excellent history

1980 'V' Rolls Royce Silver Shadow II, very attractive car with excellent history, driving beautifully
An extremely attractive example in possibly the best colour scheme which benefits from excellent supporting history.
The car has covered 89,000 miles with prior maintenance recorded at 6152, 12135, 17628, 24075, 30078, 37011, 41544, 48797, 56243, 59648, 61782, 67273, 68493, 74629, 76541, 79943, 83383, 83719 and 85639 miles, all servicing having been carried out by Rolls Royce or marque specialists. Together with the vehicle we have an A4 binder containing a large collection of invoices detailing work carried out, previous MOT's, old V5's etc., the vehicle at one time being owned by the then Lord Mayor of London Sir Anthony Joliffe. The car further benefits from 4 brand new Avon narrow band whitewall tyres very recently fitted. The car drives very nicely indeed, reflecting the enthusiastic maintenance history.
Finished in beautiful Caribbean blue with dark blue hide, possibly the best colour combination on these cars and absolutely stunning in our opinion, the entire car presents extremely well and belies the cars 40 years of age. The paintwork, leather and woodwork on this car are in superb order and really must be seen to be appreciated - this car presents better than most Silver Shadows with half this mileage.
Supplied new to the MD of Ventolite ( NSB ) Limited of Northampton, the gentleman retained the car for 16 years before it passed to Sir Anthony Joliffe, then Lord Mayor of London with 72,000 miles recorded, then passed to another owner in 1997 who kept the car for 16 years. Since then the car has had 3 further keepers, all keeping the car for a couple of years each before we eventually took the car in part exchange against our Bentley Continental GTC from it's final owner who is a repeat customer of ours.
Period specification includes electric seats, split level climate control air conditioning, cruise control, electric windows, central locking, original radio and tape deck, fog lamps, headlamp wash wipe, 4 Goodyear tyres etc. Everything just as it left the factory.
A very usable example which presents well and will provide a vast amount of enjoyment to the new custodian.
The car will be inspected and prepared by an independent specialist for your complete peace of mind and supplied with a new MOT with no advisory notices.
