This fabulous, 38500 mile from new Rolls Royce Silver Shadow I was delivered to C A Britton (Liverpool) Ltd on the 7th November 1972. Chassis Number SRH14121 was delivered from Rolls Royce Motors Limited, Motor Car Division Crewe in Regal Red with Beige leather upholstery. The Rolls Royce was supplied new to the Director of a Lancashire Finance Corporation who owned the car until 2004.
In 2005 (34,545 miles) Rolls Royce specialists Frank Dale and Stepsons carried out re-commissioning work that totalled almost £5,000. This included new brake pump, brake pads, 2 accumulators, 2 new brake hoses, new micro switches and labour. After this re-commissioning work, the Shadow was sold to a collector in Goxhill, Lincolnshire. The car was accompanied by the ex-George Formby owned Rolls Royce Silver Dawn and in 2011 both cars were sold through us. We sold SCW 184L to reputable classic car engineer in Harrogate who has covered 1500 faultless miles in the car and three years later the car has returned in exactly the same beautiful original condition. The Rolls Royce comes with a comprehensive file of paperwork, original handbooks and service book stamped at 1229, 3993, 14118, 17359, 24520, 34717, 35503, 38106 and 38445 miles. Further paperwork includes MOT's dating back to 1976, Rolls Royce correspondence throughout the 1980's, original Rolls Royce delivery note and invoices for work and expenditure.
This is a remarkably original Rolls Royce that has been kept in outstanding condition. The body is excellent with original, straight panels with lovely bright paintwork. Wheel arches, lower wings and sills are in excellent condition and the car presents superbly. The interior has been beautifully kept with nicely aged original Beige leather. Carpets, door cards, woodwork and headlining are all impressive and the engine bay and boot area both present beautifully. Chrome work is original and in good order and the underside of the vehicle is excellent.
The Shadow I drives wonderfully with no known faults. Performance, handling and braking are all superb and the car drives like you would expect a three year old Rolls Royce to drive. The braking and suspension systems are in excellent condition and engine and gearbox are superb. The Rolls Royce offers luxury, performance and high quality ride. Top quality, low mileage, original cars like this are not easy to find so we are delighted to offer this excellent car onto the market.
