rolls-royce silver shadow ii
old ivory over burgundy with ivory piping.
**many photos below, so please take the time to read the description to allow them all to load.**
this is a really beautiful
combination silver shadow ii finished in old ivory with hand-painted fine lines
in burgundy to the waist lines and the hubcap beauty rings. the connolly interior is finished in rich
burgundy with off-white piping and matching floor rugs in the same theme.
it is a stunning example that was lightly restored some 2
years ago by park-ward motors – a leader in rolls-royce restoration with over
30 years rolls-royce and bentley experience. indeed; “masters of the
art”. it has travelled only some 3,000 miles since.
the body on this shadow ii is exceptionally straight and the
paint is in excellent presentation and condition. it is consistent, very shiny
and deep lustered and has only the most slight little scratches and chips – as
you might expect on a 5 year old car. the fine lines were hand-painted by a
craftsman of the art and these were done on the waist-rails and hubcap beauty
trim rings in accordance with rolls-royce factory recommendations. the car actually
presents even nicer in real-life than it does in the photographs – the photos tend
to down-play the colour combination but the old ivory with the burgundy and cream
interior is really something elegant – it truly is a very elegant and
tastefully presented example.
the burl walnut wood finishes were redone at considerable
cost by park-ward’s rolls-royce wood restoration experts and they present in
excellent original rr condition. the finish has no less than 25 coats of clear
lacquer, each hand-rubbed between coats. thanks to the grace of mother nature,
the grain of the burl is very rich and intense and with its mirror finish is
deep and inviting. the finish can only be best appreciated in real-life by
“touch and feel”.
the connolly leather is in excellent condition throughout without
any notable marks or blemishes. it is finished in rich burgundy with a cream or
“off-white” piping. the carpets are the same theme. the leather was re-connollised
(a detailed hand-finish process which ensures an original finish and
presentation) 2 years ago and still presents very well – nothing is out of
place and the interior presents brilliantly. please have a look at the photo link of the many close-ups of the leather. the dash is good with minimal leather pulling
around the vents. the head-liner and rear parcel shelf are excellent.
all glass, chrome and bright work are excellent. all lights,
instruments, features and functions are in working order. at the time of
restoration, the owner requested the option of “heated seats”,
something not otherwise available on the silver shadow series. park-ward motors
installed these in a very discrete factory-style manner keeping the original
mechanically, she is a regularly maintained example with all
services up to date and recently thoroughly checked with anything requiring
attention repaired and/or replaced as needed. the recent owner was very fussy
and even though we know “all rolls-royces leak oil” he spent
considerable money changing all seals and gaskets resulting in what is, most
likely, the driest rolls-royce in the country! everything is functioning as it
should including hydraulics & brakes – bled and pressure tested with
various parts replaced/over-hauled (reservoir, pumps, accumulator, hoses etc).
all electrics; seats, windows, gauges and instruments work well. the climate
control is in good order with the heater nice and hot and the air conditioning
blowing icy cold. everything is original so it is to oem rolls-royce standard
without modification. brand new whitewall tires were fitted all-round and these
currently sport 90+% of their new-tyre tread.
the car has not been “tarted-up” but professionally
restored with all aspects attended to correctly and with pride and passion by
craftsmen in all aspects rolls-royce. it has been completely workshop inspected
and mechanically over-hauled where required. even the stainless and bright-work
were completely removed and hand-polished off the vehicle and again when re-assembled
and mounted. this silver shadow ii was a
west coast car most of its life and then spent some 8 years in storage in arizona. it was
purchased by a californian enthusiast following her detailed restoration. the
car has only been driven on special occasions and has never seen snow and salty
roads. the car is an extremely beautiful presenting example that is
well in advance of any silver shadow ii and is in excellent driver condition.
it easily ranks a 9 1/2out of 10.
~~ this stately silver shadow ii sporting a very regal colour
scheme is in excellent condition and a fine representation of the marque. this
is a perfect example for parking on the cafe strip in miami
or touring the shopping streets of beverly
hills. it is by definition, not show-standard but has
been professionally restored. it is so stunning, it could easily be driven
as-is to your next rolls-royce meet with great pride and draw considerable
attention! ~~

a note from rrmotorsinc:
for those rolls-royce enthusiasts who have followed my auctions in the past i welcome you all. for those who are new to my adverts and/or the marque, please note that as a serious collector of some 30 years, all my cars are truly described examples. i have my own private rolls-royce workshop (not open to the public but dedicated to my own cars and fellow rr enthusiasts) with trained rolls-royce craftsmen who are proficient in all aspects. as a team, we are dedicated to the preservation of the marque and as such, any car that leaves the stable is completely inspected and work-shopped to ensure mechanical and operational items are maintained appropriately. we adopt a “keep it original” mentality with pride and confidence, offering after sales technical support and assistance well beyond the sale. because most of my cars are offered for the pleasures of driving enjoyment it is not always possible or practical to seek perfection (in the true sense of the word) but we do always uphold excellence in whatever we do. our cars are by no means cheap priced cars but we like to think they are amongst the best. to this end, i firmly believe in the famous adage; “quality is remembered long after the price is forgotten.” we hope you do too.”

** please read auction terms & conditions before bidding. **
this rolls-royce is part of a private collection. although licensed and bonded, i am not a main-stream retail car dealer or broker; i am a professional car collector of some 30 years with considerable experience and knowledge of rolls-royce and bentley motor cars. i have a long standing reputation being associated with the marque which i take seriously. i take pride in my cars and have fun in collecting and restoring them. however, auctions are not a game so when you place a bid or offer, and you are the winning bidder, please understand you have entered a binding contract. you cannot bid and win the auction and expect not to meet the terms and conditions. bidding and/or winning does not mean you are expecting me to “hold” the car until you have the opportunity to inspect it. any inspection contemplated should be undertaken before you bid or make an offer and i openly welcome any potential buyer to come and personally inspect the car. once you bid or make an offer, you are doing so to buy without conditions. your bid can not be subject to anything. a $2000.00 deposit (non-refundable) is required within 24 hours of the close of the auction and payable by paypal. the balance of funds are required within 7 days of the close of the auction and must be provided by cashier’s check or bank wire. i cannot accept paypal for the balance. full payment must be made (and payments cleared) before the title and/or the vehicle is released. all payments are non-refundable. payments as described above form an important part of this purchase contract and so, if all the funds are not received as outlined above, i reserve the right to terminate the transaction without notice. if there has been any deposit or other part payments received and i elect to terminate the contract, i reserve the right to keep any such deposits or payments and resell the vehicle to another bidder or interested party or re-list the vehicle at any time. to be clear, if you change your mind for any reason and do not complete the transaction in the time-frame required, you will forfeit your deposit.
the winning bidder must contact me within 24 hours of auction end, and make arrangements for payment at that time. if no contact is made within 24 hours and especially if you do not reply to my message(s) thru ebay within that time, i reserve the right to re-list the vehicle, sell it to the next high bidder, or sell it otherwise. most banks and credit unions do not finance vehicles older than 2002 or with more than 100k miles. make sure if your purchase is going to be financed, that your lender accepts the year and miles of this vehicle before bidding. simply put, please arrange financing prior to bidding.
i am happy to assist with shipping arrangements on a national and worldwide basis but the winning bidder takes full responsibility for pickup and/or shipping and at his cost.
as a collector and experienced restorer of the marque, i make every effort to bring my cars to a high standard. by comparison, my cars are generally superior to others available but they are by no means perfect. you must expect some issues. unless specifically stated, the car is not of show standard but of nice “driver” condition. please understand, show cars of this model cost hundreds of thousands of dollars to achieve and sell for prices commensurate, so the sale price of this car reflects its relative condition. you are buying “condition” accordingly. buyers should not expect to receive concours quality or “perfect” cars at these prices. please also understand, the very nature of these classic rolls-royces is such that it is not always possible to attend to every item, or perhaps i may have inadvertently overlooked items. further, and very importantly, these cars are classic cars also because they are old. so this means a 40 year old car is predominantly comprised of 40 year old parts. and old parts will fail. all buyers must understand and expect that things can or will wear out, break and/or stop functioning without notice. this is even more likely with hand-built english cars of early technology when compared to the typical american car of the same vintage. please note, fitted radio/stereo systems are usually subject to upgrade by purchasers so i do not ensure operation of these. similarly, cruise control systems fitted to these classics were of an inferior design and i do not check or warrant the operation of these. suspension and brakes on these cars are complex. we thoroughly check them and replace things that are identified faulty. but please understand, by example; if we change a brake line because it appears aged or faulty, we do not at the same time replace all other hoses because they are of similar age. this is considered “preventative maintenance”. we do not do this unless specifically requested and is not included in the purchase price. feel free to ask for this additional service. further, a feature or function that is working perfectly one moment, may decide to play-up the next. after all, it is some 42 years old. this is the nature of any classic car and especially a rolls-royce which was very “complicated” for its era. for this reason it is necessary for the following condition:
the vehicle is being sold “as-is/where-is” with no warranty expressed, written or implied. any descriptions or representations are made with reasonable judgment and all efforts are made to ensure fair assessment and accuracy but they are for descriptive and identification purposes only and are not to be construed as a warranty of any type. the seller shall not be responsible for errors in description, authenticity, genuineness, or defects herein and makes no warranty in connection therewith. if any aspect of the description contradicts what can be seen in the photos, then the photos shall prevail as the reference point. no allowance or set aside will be made on account of any incorrectness, unforeseen imperfection, defect or damage. it is the responsibility of the buyer to have satisfied himself as to the condition and value and to bid based upon that judgment solely. the seller shall and will make every reasonable effort to disclose any known defects at the buyer’s request prior to the close of the auction. seller assumes no responsibility for any repairs regardless of any written or oral statements about the vehicle. being a classic car in excess of 10 years of age, in most us states, the mileage may be recorded as “exempt”. in this regard the seller makes no warranties as to the accuracy of the mileage indicated or shown. i can hold the vehicle up to 30 days while you arrange shipping but you must immediately insure it. i will not bear any responsibility for any additional costs including storage, transportation, or repair after the close of the auction. whereas i am happy to store the car in excess of 30 days from auction end, a cost of $35 per day shall apply beyond 30 days of auction end. also, you must remember that this is a classic +/-34 year old vehicle, and while it is up to you, i do not recommend that you just “hop in and drive it across the country”until you have familiarised yourself with the car. at least, i have never done that. i have always professionally transported the cars in enclosed carriers from where i bought them to my home.
please; if you are unable to abide by these terms, contact me before you contemplate doing so as, respectfully, there can be no exceptions.
i am sorry if these terms seem harsh but there seem to be some very unrealistic buyers out there – fortunately, only few of these people exist but those that do can make life difficult, so it appears everything needs to spelled out. very simply put, this is an old car being offered for sale. it is not new and is subject to the perils of age. further, rolls-royces are not without nuances, idiosyncrasies and they are renown for a host of design issues which can make them not inexpensive to maintain. this is well documented in many circles. you need to be a special and considerate type of purchaser to own a rolls-royce. their down-side is part of the fun in owning them! as the old saying goes; “we love to hate them and hate to love them!” so, please respect the terms and conditions when you bid.
~~ **please note: as a professional collector and experienced restorer, i have my own rolls-royce dedicated workshop with qualified craftsmen on hand; the park-ward motor museum. as a passionate collector of the marque i take great pride and pleasure in passing on any of these great cars to its next owner (“caretaker”). in so doing, once this rolls-royce is sold, i will put the car thru my workshop to ensure that it is mechanically sound and all major features and functions are operating as described even though the car is contractually being sold “as-is”. certain items such as final electrical tests and hydraulic pressure checks are usually left for this stage as these are considered “commissioning procedures”. in this case, this will include the air conditioning system of this car. this and considerable other work will be performed after the sale and before delivery. this is all done at no charge. who else selling a rolls-royce on ebay does this?! depending on our work load, please allow approximately 7-10 business days for this procedure. for more information on the park-ward motor museum and our skills, please ebay message me and i would be happy to show you some 100 rolls-royces restored to varying levels over the last few years ~~
rolls-royce values vary wildly, entirely dependent on their condition. there are, of course, other aspects that add or subtract from their values – long wheel base versus regular, the year which dictated certain technical changes, etc. the colour alone, for example can make a big difference. so for the benefit of new-comers to the marque please see the approximate guide to values based on a particular model below. please remember, these are “plus-or-minus” figures:
year: 1977-1980
make: rolls-royce
model: silver shadow ii
show car: $45,000+
exceptional: $35-40,000
excellent: $25-35,000
good: $18-25,000
average: $12-18,000
fair: $6-12,000
basket case: < $6,000 hopefully this will provide a reference point for the rolls-royce being featured in this listing as it compares to the range of different condition examples. please note, a very poor condition example that is tired and not maintained can easily demand some $30,000 in restoration to make it a "nice" example but remember, it will be no longer original. so don't be fooled by "cheap buys". for any specific questions about this unique example of a rolls-royce, please do not hesitate to contact me. according to the london based investment research firm; historic automobile group international, classic cars have appreciated on average, 13% per year since 1980, whilst overall stock values averaged an 11% gain over the same period. the following graph charts the value of collectible cars vs. the s&p500. ~~oo00oo~~ "rrmotorsinc": qualified & experienced in rolls-royce and bentley motor cars world-wide for more than 30 years
