Vehicle Description

This is among the last of the Silver Shadow Long Wheel Bases ("LWB") series. It can be confidently said that the 1975-76 year manufactured Silver Shadows were the best of the series as they incorporated all of the technological and design enhancements developed over the life of the model (1966-76). Being a LWB it represented the penultimate of the series. This one is finished in "Magnolia" (a rich beige) with honey tan Connolly hide interior with matching floor rugs. The car is finished with hand-painted tan fine-lines on the body waist-line and the hub-cap trim rings. The colour is very elegant providing a light hue without being white. The car is definitely NOT white. The body is extremely straight and the paint is truly excellent. It has been a Western USA car its entire life. It was professionally repainted in the last 15 years and it presents well - fantastic, in fact. It was a complete repaint with all chrome off and door jams done correctly. The quality is so stunning and clearly a high-end job ($20,000+). Other than the odd little mark here and there (very minor) the paint is perfect. Completely consistent, high in luster and no signs of any over-spray on any externally fitted part. The Everflex vinyl top is original factory fitment, has never been changed and in excellent condition without any signs of underlying moisture issues which are otherwise typical of these cars. This being a LWB, it is 4" longer than the standard saloon with this extra space being offered for the benefit of rear seat passengers. The car has its original rear seat foot-rests. Long Wheel Base cars are easily identified by their unique smaller rear window and factory Everflex tops. The interior of the car is in stunning condition with virtually perfect original Connolly hide leather. The leather appears to have never been re-dyed or repaired. Excellent testament to its relatively low mileage (any lines you may see in the photos are the "natural" creases in the leather - for some reason, they are accentuated in the photos whereas in real life the seats present with welcoming patina that is just gorgeous). The leather is soft and supple. Rolls-Royce used Connolly "Vaumol" hides which are vat dyed to the base colour (in this case tan) and then hand rubbed with a darker tone that would capture the natural pores and folds in the grain. The finish provides for a quasi antique look, in some ways like a chesterfield couch. The beauty of un-dyed Vaumol hide is this toning effect is maintained whereas recolouring results in the leather ending up being just the main colour. Please look at the close up photos of the Vaumol to appreciate this expensive and detailed process. If you are the sort of person that likes "brand new leather" like that in a new Lexus, you will not appreciate this. And, very respectfully, we will not dye this beautiful original leather at any cost (sorry). All the wood is in excellent condition and appears to mostly original. With little signs of the typical cracking in the lacquer coating that you normally would expect, this is not only unusual but a further "positive" of the car having been well maintained and garaged during its life. The headlining is very good and the carpet excellent. The deep grain and glossy finish of the rich grained wood in this example combined with the honey tan leather interior make this car very rich and inviting. Overall it is like new and smells like it too. **For the winning bidder, a brand new set of genuine Rolls-Royce lambswool mouton rugs are available for separate purchase.** All interior feature and functions are fully operational including all electrics - seats, windows, gauges, clock etc. The A/C blows icy cold and heater working well. Everything is also clean and crisp. It has its original push-button radio and factory installed 8-track cassette - not many left these days. The chrome and bright work is stunning without any pitting and the rubber around the car is good. Me
