1976 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow LWB 6.7


Who cares about fuel consumption when it's built like this?


Nothing: 100% reliable!

Although ... there's a slight blow from the exhaust manifold, which seals itself when it warms up.

General Comments:

Turns heads - especially when told that it's now 31 years old.

The suspension - all original equipment - still holds the road like new, and affords the smoothest ride of all the cars I have owned since I passed my driving test in the same year this car was built.

Although the leather interior is in need of a good clean, feed and recolour, it is still in much better condition than that found in many cars decades younger.

If I could get a decent price for the Grand Cherokee, I would drive the Rolls all year round rather than just in the Summer months!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I'm trading my 1971 Toyota Crown for a 1976 RR SilShadow... wonder if I am making a mistake? A RR I can buy anytime (all one needs is $), but a Crown... Try looking for one.

Incredible feel-good factor behind the wheel - and I find any excuse to be behind the wheel!


Nothing except items requiring routine maintenance or replacement.

General Comments:

Like sitting in your favourite armchair.

Potentially high repair costs, but zero depreciation.

Quality feel to all components.

Interior made from a herd of cows and half a rainforest.

Spend your money on driving it and you'll save on repair bills.

Remember that the cheapest Rolls-Royce you can find will end up being the most expensive.

Regular servicing and regular use are essential.

Can you convert the A/C on the 1975 to R-134?
