1976 Rolls-Royce Silver ShadowRare Two-Tone, Well Maintained, Drives Beautifully
This 1976 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow shows beautifully in her rare and elegant two-tone livery and gorgeous Conolly leather interior. This Rolls has been well maintained since new and runs and drives beautifully. She’s very well detailed throughout and shows very well. She would be a great addition to any collection for local shows and tours.
This Silver Shadow was shipped on the “Mosel Express” and received at the New York port on the 17th of January 1977. She was then acquired by Selma Hymowitz on February 22, 1977, and transported to her home in Hollywood FL on March 1, 1977. She was then acquired by Mr. A. Acker in New York on December 17, 1979, with 11,352 miles from new. He owned her until 1985 having accumulated 36,000 miles.
Her most recent owner is from Scottsdale. He acquired her in January of 2013 from Park-Ward Motors in IL. The Rolls had been owned by the Rolls-Royce service technician that was employed by Park-Ward Motors. He was impressed with how well she had been maintained by the previous owners and owned her until February of 2023. He thoroughly enjoyed driving her near his home in Scottsdale, AZ, but drove her very little during his 10 years of ownership. The Rolls has been well maintained and now has 96,000 miles.
The two-tone livery of Walnut (Paint Code 9510261) and Masons Black (Paint Code 9500701) has beautiful luster and shows well overall. It appears to be an older repaint that looks in overall very nice condition. This is a rare and elegant color combination that we have not seen before. In the direct sunlight the Walnut really comes to life and is very vibrant. The light gray double pinstripe provides a nice touch of elegance. There are several small imperfections from normal use. These are highlighted in our photo gallery and are only noticeable upon close inspection. The chrome and brightwork show well overall. The wheel discs are accented in matching Walnut Brown and show well. The windows have been recently tinted, lending sun protection and privacy.
The interior is in very nice overall condition featuring a very elegant Dark Brown Conolly Leather (Trim Code VM-890) and Black Piping (Trim Code 8500). The front seats have been professionally reupholstered in matching high-quality leather. The leather overall is in very nice condition and is soft and supple. The headliner is Fawn and in very nice condition. The carpets are Dark Brown and bound in Black and are in very nice condition. The leather dash is in excellent condition as well as the burl walnut veneer with inlays throughout. All the gauges show well and function properly. There is minimal wear showing on the front compartment center armrests. The interior shows very well overall.
The engine compartment and undercarriage are very well detailed and show well overall. The 6.75 Liter V-8 motor produces 189 hp and performs quietly and powerfully. The power is transferred to the independent rear suspension through a General Motors sourced Turbo Hydramatic 400 Automatic transmission. She comes complete with rear self-leveling Hydropneumatic suspension and rack and pinion steering. She drives remarkably well.
This Rolls received a thorough inspection and servicing by British Automotive in Scottsdale in February 2023. All of her important hoses and belts were replaced along with a normal servicing. She comes complete with early history records, numerous service records and the original owner’s manual.
