1967 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow

Rolls Royce Silver Shadow sold

Here is our 1967 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow being loaded up ready to make her way to her new home in Kings Lynn.

Loading up for tomorrow’s auction

A bright and early start again this morning as we load up the 5 cars ready to head down to Kempton Park for tomorrow’s Jaguar Heritage, Classic and Sports Cars, hosted by Barons.

We’ve enlisted the help and expertise of Russell’s Transport once again to transport 4 of the 5 vehicles with the 1982 Triumph TR7 being left to us to take ourselves…this was a late entry and we hadn’t planned for it to go too!

 

Running up our Rolls Royce engine after many years

After many years in storage our 1967 Rolls Royce is brought back to life once again and runs very sweet.

Having inspected the entire engine and tweaked her here and there we have now detailed the engine bay and under the bonnet to make her much for presentable…

…as a Rolls Royce should be!

Out for a drive on the Suffolk roads

Having travelled all the way over from our good friends at Beverly Hills Car Club, she spent her early years in Kirkcaldy before heading over to the states in the early 80s we believe.

Now that she’s back on UK soil we’ve got her running and here we are out on a nice, leisurely morning drive this morning.

Our LA arrival is here

Fresh off the ship this morning and in our workshops this afternoon, here we have our 1967 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow – RXX 1. having travelled all the way over from our good friends at Beverly Hills Car Club, she spent her early years in Kirkcaldy before heading over to the states.

Initially, the model was planned to be called “Silver Mist”, a natural progression from its predecessor Silver Cloud. The name was changed to “Silver Shadow” after realising that “Mist” is the German word for manure, rubbish, or dirt.

Our Silver Shadow is a very early model which has the much sought after Chippendale dash. Finished in claret over black with magnolia leather. It was exported to the United States where it remained as a 1 owner car until recently repatriated by Bridge Classic Cars and still, today, sporting its  RXX1 registration number.

It is not our intention to restore the car but to sympathetically recommission so as not to lose the years of patina.
