1979 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow II 4 Door Saloon 6.7 V8




Had engine re-built (very costly!!!), but to be fair the car had a full service history. The mistake is dealers make is they don't change the antifreeze every two years, and after 30 years corrosion forms on the internal waterways in the engine... BE WARNED!

General Comments:

I love the car; it's comfortable and remarkably quick for its size.

Interior is great, the leather looks remarkably good. Just had the car re-sprayed and it looks like new.

Would love a Seraph though... one day maybe.

1979 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow II


The best of british car makers


Speedometer needed calibrating

1st week I had the car, the brake hose near the brake fluid chamber had a leak; easily replaced.

General Comments:

This car has been the most trouble free car I have ever owned. For a car that is near to 30 years of age I cannot complain.

1977 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow II SWB 6.75


Bang for bucks, not much comes close


Gearbox, gear change became slow and sticky, fault was diagnosed as electronic gear change motor, rebuilt at a cost of £350, and now perfect.

Noisy hydraulic tappet developed, replacement £400 inc fitting.

Not too bad for 14 years ownership.

General Comments:

If you plant you foot down this car will shift and leave some people in shock at just how quick this 3 tonne 18 foot long beast can move.

This car was designed to be maintained by chauffers, so it is not too bad to work on yourself, but do have major services done by specialists or you will be asking for trouble.

Only buy a car with a FULL Rolls-Royce specialist history and have it inspected before buying. Small parts can be hugely expensive.

Spend a bit of extra cash on buying an immaculate car rather than a cheap one needing work done.

Far better in the long run.

If you can afford one, buy one, unrivaled presence on the road.

It is like gliding along on your couch.

Electric seats, digital stereo, air con, cruise control, elec windows, power steering, dual braking, ride height adjusting suspension and huge leather seats are, but a few features.
