1979 Rolls-Royce Sil­ver Shadow

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Buying & Selling -

Unusally this Shadow was a gen­uine white ex­am­ple rather than one of the usual white blow-over wed­ding num­bers, and a £2500-3500 es­ti­mate en­sured that it at­tracted plenty of at­ten­tion among bid­ders. The body­work was best de­scribed as fair to good – the rear arches showed the to-be-ex­pected bub­bling, but the doors hung well and the front wings were in good con­di­tion. The paint was lift­ing in places, but wasn’t that bad. The blue in­te­rior had lasted pretty well but the lac­quer was lift­ing on the door cap­pings, which rather jarred vis­ually. Com­ing with a his­tory file packed with 22 years’ worth of old MoT test cer­tifi­cates and a smat­ter­ing of in­voices, it rep­re­sented value par ex­cel­lence.
