    Presenting This 1969 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow I 'Chippendale Dashboard' Model With Just Two Previous Keepers Since New


     - Gentleman Owned For 44 Years -

     - Detailed Ownership Records -

     - Incredibly Well Preserved Throughout - 


    Hand built steel & aluminium coachwork, Triplex "Sundym" glass, Rolls Royce stainless steel wheel trims with colour coded bands, electric windows, central locking, electrically adjustable seats, power steering, centre console, front & rear armrests, Kienzle clock, highly polished burr walnut veneers, period Lucas stereo & 8 Track player, rear vanity mirrors, map lights, 12v power sockets with cigar lighters, ash trays, & all of the usual period Rolls Royce refinements

    Finished in the stunning Rolls Royce Ivory with contrasting Tan vinyl roof

    The coachwork presents in a wonderful & incredibly well preserved condition throughout. The current keeper of fourty four years has always kept his collectable Rolls Royce & Bentley motor cars tucked away in the motorhouse. Clearly this, coupled with regular polishing & limited to dry useage only, has kept this beautiful Silver Shadow in the order you see today 

    Optioned with Tan 'VM.846' leather upholstery, Black top & knee roll.


    The whole interior remains in an exceptional original condition. The leather is soft & supple & displaying a charming warm patina throughout. Garage storage since new has protected the cabin materials from the ravages of UV exposure. The highly polished Burr Walnut veneers remain in an original & stunning condition with no restoration work carried out! The cabin is indeed a very fine space to enjoy

    Built with the traditional Rolls Royce 6230cc V8 engine coupled to the far superior three speed automatic transmission producing an "adequate" BHP figure. During Mr Allen's ownership & despite being sparingly used, the Silver Shadow has always received regular & major maintainence conducted as per the manufactures schedules. Today 'SRH5379' starts with ease & drives exceptionally well.  

    Supplied new on 9th Februrary 1969 via 'Wadhams LTD Southsea' Rolls Royce Main Dealership to a Mr Rogers in Fareham, Hampshire. Ownership then passed onto a Fareham based company, 'AG & LM Smith LTD' in Feburary 1969. 

    Chassis 'SRH 5379' was then purchased in 1977 by Mr Colin Allen, a classic car enthusiast & local garage owner. During his 44 year tenure, she has certainly been cossetted & has simply wanted for nothing. After amassing a wide collection of (then) contempary & vintage RR & Bentley motor cars, this remained in the collection for the longest period & was indeed his final motor car before driving retirement several years ago.  


    Accompanying this Silver Shadow is a history file that includes road tax discs dating back to 1979, service booklet with stamped entries, owners handbook & document wallet, previous MoT test certificates, Radiomobile radio operating instructions, Rolls Royce & Bentley sales & serivce guide

    A timewarp example that is offered to the market for the first time in over 40 years with an incredible provenance.

    Historic road tax & MoT exemption, V5c registration document, extensive history file & owners hand books
