1968 Rolls-Royce Sil­ver Shadow

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Auction News -

A later ex­am­ple of the ear­li­est ‘Chip­pen­dale’ dash­board Shad­ows, its con­di­tion caused de­bate among pun­ters. Break it, and com­fort­ably double your money, or get stuck in with a restora­tion. The paint was the killer – a later re­paint hadn’t lasted well, with paint on the front wings, be­low the chrome strip, as well as at the base of the wind­screen, lit­er­ally fall­ing off. On the other hand, the pan­els weren’t too bad and the bright­work wasn’t be­yond redemp­tion. In­side things weren’t too bad: many auc­tion Shad­ows have had far worse seats and trim. Def­i­nitely not bad for the price, but what hap­pens to it will be in­ter­est­ing.
