Silver Shadow II, same ownership since 1988, SRH 38793
stunning, low mileage low ownership example which only became available through
by an elderly gentleman from the original owner in 1988, ownership transferring to the gentleman's widow
upon his passing in 1992. The
lady never used the car but couldn't bring herself to sell it as it
was her husbands pride and joy. Since then the car was collected every
year by a local garage and taken for an MOT and service with instructions
to do "whatever was needed" and then put back into the families garage.
The old lady sadly passed quite recently and we were contacted by the
surviving daughter, who was in her 60's, and asked to find a new owner for

stamped service book with the vehicle showing previous services at 3471,
9771, 16270, 18976, 19529, 25314, 29646, 32752, 34830, 37259, 38630,
39603, 43418, 44743, 44788, and 44801 miles. There is a further service
stamped with the mileage omitted however it was probably only a very few
miles over the previous service ! Since this time the servicing has been
carried out as described above, the car being serviced with every MOT test
and being looked after by the same garage since 1989. In addition to the
service book we have every previous MOT for the car which demonstrate
literally 1 or 2 miles driven between MOT tests - the car had covered
44,710 miles in 1989 and we have just taken her over 45,000 !
we have had the vehicle fully re-commissioned and serviced at marque specialists
Bowling Ryan to include a full
braking system overhaul and full mechanical service in readiness for re-sale. In
addition to the service records we also have the purchase invoice when the
gentleman bought the car for the sum of £21,000 in August 1988, quite a
sum back then.
collected the car it's engine oil was spotlessly clean, as if the oil had
been changed that day. The battery earth lead was disconnected to prevent
the battery going flat and once this was re-attached the car fired
immediately and quickly settled into a perfectly smooth idle. The car
drove beautifully back to our premises and clearly demonstrated how well
the car has been maintained, despite very little use. The bodywork and

original throughout, Bowling Ryan commenting that this is one of the
better ones they have seen.
