Auction Details:

1979 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow II *** No Reserve ***

This is the Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow  II. One of the most prestigious Luxury Cars in the world. It is a rare find, there are only 18 Silver Shadows in existence today.  

It was the first of the marque to use unitary body and chassis construction.  

The Silver Shadows were the first Rolls-Royce designed models to feature modern construction methods, and the cars were built to the highest of standards by craftsmen.   

The Silver Shadow was a striking change from the Silver Cloud that preceded it. Although it was smaller and squarer, the Shadow was lighter, faster, and handled much better than any previous Rolls-Royce.  

The luxury sedan had a luxury price tag: a whopping $65,000, which is about $280,600 in today’s money. If Bentley T1 and T2 models look familiar, it’s because they should— they’re essentially Silver Shadows with a Bentley badge.  

The Silver Shadow II was produced from 1977 to 1980 and part of the Standard Steel Saloon Production.  

The Silver Shadow II is most notable for its rack and pinion steering; modifications to the front suspension improved handling markedly.  

Externally, the bumpers were changed from chrome to alloy and rubber starting with the late 1976 Silver Shadows.  

The Silver shadow II is equipped with a V8 engine, unit steel body frame, Rear Wheel Drive, Rack & Pinion w/ Power Assist Steering, 3-Speed Auto Transmission, and a top speed of 114 mph.  

The Silver shadow II still has a way of grabbing the attention of Baby Boomers, who account for 51.64 percent of Hagerty insurance quotes for Silver Shadows. Boomers make up 39.88 percent of quotes across the rest of the market.  

Pre-Boomers quote 15.79 percent of Silver Shadows, more than double their 7.26-percent market average. Gen-Xers quote 23 percent of Silver Shadows; Millennials quote 9.54 percent.   Come take a look at our Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow II.  

We’re sure you will fall in love.

Great Project car for the winter. Parts are still available and easy to get.
