Grey Poupon: 1972 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow

The Rolls Royce Silver Shadow was introduced in 1965 and has the remarkable distinction of being the first Rolls to be built with unibody construction.  The factory in Crewe built and sold an astonishing 30,057 examples of this ode to opulence before it was replaced with the Silver Spirit after the 1980 model year. These cars are incredible value per pound and won’t be dirt cheap forever…but maintenance and repair costs can be brutal if you can even find the parts. You’ll need to spend some time on Rolls forums or be friends with somebody who knows how to rebuilt anything (we all know that guy!). Find this 1972 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow offered for $13,995 via the SecretCarClub in Rancho Santa Fe, CA.

From the seller:

1972 Rolls Royce Silver Ghost

Not many like this one come up for sale! Has the desirable chrome bumpers. Fantastic two tone seafoam/silver; always serviced (Carlsbad British Motorcars) and due to owner’s passing now available.

Car sat for a while and just over $13,000 was spent to make it roadworthy again. Interior must be seen! No cracks, nice patina and subtle seats. Paint is awesome. Southern California car its entire life. Will truly make a wonderful daily or weekend driver. Compare to others.

US $13,995 o.b.o.
