1980 'V' Rolls Royce Silver Shadow II, SRH 41033

An absolutely stunning, low mileage example which we invested a great deal of time and effort pursuing and were very pleased to secure. The car has covered just 32,000 miles with extensive Service History covering the entire life of the car. In addition to the stamped Service Book there is a large A4 box folder full of invoices and receipts detailing work carried out, old MOT's etc. together with build history and spec sheet from Rolls Royce. Reading through these bills it is quite apparent that the vehicle has wanted for nothing and has been maintained with no regard to expense with work being carried out long before it was really necessary, there is far too much history to list but rest assured all the common points of concern on this model have been attended to including a hydraulic system overhaul. The meticulous maintenance is further evidenced by the condition of the car and how well the car drives. The vehicle really is quite exceptional throughout, just as good underneath as it is above, cars of this order are very few and far between.

We collected this vehicle from Paignton in Devon and I personally drove the car 303 miles to our premises in Lancashire. The drive home was an absolute joy, the car performed flawlessly cruising effortlessly all the way, tracking straight and true, the silent engine holding constant temperature and Oil pressure, the steering direct and responsive, the ride very controlled - there is no slop here ! The car attracted a multitude of admiring glances and thumbs up from other motorists along the way, it really is a stunning motor car out on the road. This was on a very hot day and I found the Air Conditioning so powerful I had to turn the temperature up as it was too cold ! Reading through the Service records the Air Conditioning has recently been overhauled and it shows ! Incidentally the car had over quarter of a tank remaining which means it must have been approaching 20mpg on this run - when I filled the tank in Paignton I expected to need more fuel to complete the journey.

Finished in Ivory with Dark Brown Leather, Fawn Cirrus Headlining and Cumberland Stone Carpets with Lambswool Over Rugs, rear Vanity Mirrors and rear Foot Stools. Gold plated Spirit of Ecstasy which was re-plated in 2009, along with other exterior brightwork to keep the car in outstanding order.

Period specification includes Leather Upholstery, Electric Seats, ice cold Split Level Climate Control Air Conditioning, Cruise Control, Electric Windows ( all 4 recently overhauled ), Central Locking, original Blaupunkt radio and Philips Tape Deck, front and rear Fog Lamps, Headlamp Wash Wipe, 4 very recent new Cooper Super Touring Narrow Band Whitewall Tyres etc. Everything working as it should.

The Uk Log Book shows just one owner, however the car spent most of it's life in Jersey so we know it is not a one owner car.

Supplied with original Book Pack containing Owners Manuals, Service Book, original Order Form ( 36,911.79 new ), build history from Rolls Royce etc etc. Original Tool kit and spare bulbs all present and correct.

A really beautiful car which you will be proud to own, ideal for car shows or as a sunny Sunday toy - or in this colour could well be used for the occasional Wedding.

The car will come fully prepared in our own workshops and will be supplied with a new MOT. Interesting part exchange considered.

N.B. The spots on the front Air Dam in the pictures are not stone chips, they are dead flies which our valet missed and we failed to notice until we uploaded the photographs.
