Silver Shadow II, same ownership since 1988, SRH 38793
stunning, low mileage low ownership example, previously sold by ourselves
to a retired Naval officer.
This is a
fabulous example which we initially purchased from the widow of the second
owner and sold to retired Royal Navy Lieutenant Commander Alan Wright.
Alan was a Royal Navy engineer and had previously rebuilt a 1934 Rolls
Royce 20/25. Alan has loved owning the car for the last 4 years but is
sadly forced to sell due to his advancing years and we were very happy to
be offered first opportunity to buy the car back.
has an excellent service history with the fully stamped service book
illustrating prior maintenance at
9771, 16270, 17529, 18976, 19529, 25314, 29646, 32752, 34830, 37259,
38630, 39603, 43418, 44743, 44788, 44801, 44951 and 46029 miles - current
mileage 46686. In addition to the service book we have an A4 binder
containing every previous MOT for the car, a collection of invoices and
other pertinent documentation. Upon our initial purchase of the vehicle in
2017 we 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. The car has since been
serviced again during Alan's tenure and indeed Alan, as a highly skilled
engineer, has himself enjoyed carrying out maintenance and repairs to the
by an elderly local gentleman from the original owner in 1988 for the sum
of £21,000, ownership transferred to the gentleman's widow upon his
passing in 1992. The lady rarely drove the car but couldn't bring herself
to sell it as it was her husbands pride and joy. For some years the car
remained in the family's garage beneath a cotton car cover and was
collected every year by a local garage for service and MOT with
instructions to do "whatever was needed" - the MOT's for this period
illustrate literally 1 or 2 miles covered between MOT tests ! The old lady
sadly passed in 2017 and we were contacted by the surviving daughter, who
was in her 60's, and asked to find a new owner for the car, eventually
passing the car to Alan.
drives beautifully, in fact in Alan's own words it is probably the best
Shadow he has had and Alan had these cars brand new. The bodywork and
interior are truly exceptional and everything appears to be totally
original throughout, Bowling Ryan commented that this is one of the better
ones and it is just as good underneath as it appears on top. The car has
always been garaged and the appearance bears testament to careful
in glorious Walnut, very representative of the period and trimmed with
magnolia hide and dark brown carpets which are protected by dark brown
lambswool over rugs, the rear compartment further equipped with footstools
and vanity mirrors, all in wonderful condition throughout
only the smallest blemishes to be found upon very close examination..
specification includes electric seats, split level climate control air
conditioning, cruise control, electric windows, central locking, original
radio and 8 track tape deck, fog lamps, headlamp wash wipe, 4 Avon
turbospeed tyres etc. Everything just as it left the factory.
with original book pack complete with owners manuals, stamped service
book, 4 keys etc.
This is a
superb example of a late Shadow II with low ownership and low mileage,
cars with this provenance very rarely come to market.
The car will be inspected and prepared by an independent specialist and
supplied with a new MOT with no advisory notices.
