7 ROLLS-ROYCE SIL­VER SHADOW/ BENT­LEY T-SE­RIES

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

PRICE RANGE £6250-18,000 This time­lessly grace­ful dowa­ger isn’t just hang­ing in there – it’s ac­tu­ally risen 10 points since our last half-year round-up, so there’s no deny­ing the Shadow’s en­dur­ing pop­u­lar­ity. Purists tend to favour the ear­lier cars, but those who want to re­ally drive favour the later cars thanks to their many me­chan­i­cal up­grades, though the black plas­tic bumper in­serts aren’t quite as vis­ually at­trac­tive. Find­ing a gen­uinely good ex­am­ple rather than a warmed-over medi­ocre car that’s spent its later years work­ing hard as a wed­ding car is the big­gest chal­lenge – me­chan­i­cally, they’re pretty tough. ONE THAT SOLD 1978 Bent­ley T2 £13,860 (Brightwells)
