1973 ROLLS-ROYCE SIL­VER SHADOW YOURS FOR £18,950

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Auction News -

We reckon it’d be well worth adding a bit ex­tra

to the bud­get for a weekend in Bel­gium to snap this one up. It’s clearly had lots spent on it and the seller’s will­ing to talk prices, so there’s def­i­nitely po­ten­tial for cruis­ing back to Blighty in

a bit of a mus­cle car bar­gain. While in­creased val­ues have pushed the faster, more

de­sir­able TR5 out of this price range you can still pick up TR4s for our wind­fall bud­get. This one’s got

plenty of good signs – in­clud­ing be­ing an right­hand-drive car rather than a left-hooker im­ported from the States – and it’s in very good con­di­tion. Our very own David Brown has al­ready vowed to buy a Kar­mann Ghia if he ever gets £20k. This one would more than do the trick as it’s in good con­di­tion and has been treated to new tyres. You could use the change you’ve got left – if you want

orig­i­nal­ity – to re­spray it in its fac­tory colour. Yes, you can buy Sil­ver Shad­ows for rather less than our £20k bud­get but chances are they’ll be need­ing a bit of re­me­dial work. This par­tic­u­lar car looks to have had all the hard work al­ready done and it’s the more sought-after Shadow I model, so it’s well worth hav­ing a closer look.
