Texas Classic Cars of Dallas is proud to showcase this largely original 1971 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow. This car was purchased locally in recent history by a gentleman who drove it locally. He had this car inspected and new tires installed along with a fresh tune-up. The air conditioning system blows cold. This is a right hand drive car and it is a pleasure to drive. This is an older car and does show wear and tear, but overall very solid. The interior displays original upholstery while the exterior has received a previous repaint of the attractive Silver Mink colour. The Dallas Love Field Frontiers of Flight Museum is the fitting location for many of our photos of this vintage Rolls Royce. Be sure to visit our friends at the Flight Museum if you find yourselves in Dallas, Texas. Texas Classic Cars of Dallas' showroom is located only minutes away from the museum.
The Silver Shadow was Rolls Royces' most significant automobile since the Silver Ghost. This model took over a decade to come to final production, launched in 1965 and continuing through the early 1970s. This example a 1970 model, enjoyed increased engine displacement to 6.75 litres. The factory wheels have recently been fitted with new 225/75R15 whitewall radial tires all around. The colour is called Silver Mink according to Rolls Royce brochures. This is a very attractive hue. The paint is a repaint that appears to be fairly well done over the original sheetmetal. The paint shows well.
Open the doors to 1970. The interior retains the original hides, dark blue in colour. The upholstery has been previously dyed and is intact throughout. As you can see, the leather shows well but is still attractive. The dash retains the original wood throughout and factory gauges. The gauges themselves are functional as is the older AM/FM Pioneer cassette stereo. The air conditioning blows cold. The mileage of 51,982 is believed correct to the car, however we have no documentation whatsoever and the car will be sold as true mileage unknown. This just appears to be a good solid old car.
The back seat is in good condition as is the headliner, door panels, and carpeting. Again, the seat upholstery shows age and a previous re-dye. The rear bumper has been damaged (photographed above) and can be removed and repaired with little effort. The trunk features the jacking tools tucked in place. Under the hood is the factory 6.75 litre V8 engine. This powerplant had a recent tune-up done and runs well. These cars were really ahead of their time engineering wise. They feature power-assist 4-wheel-disc-brakes which are functional good. The air conditioning system is also working. Original plaques are found throughout this Rolls Royce. The undercarriage is in good condition, shown above.
