Safe At Speed: 1975 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow

Whenever I make the mistake of taking a tour around on public streets, I am aghast at the vehicles that I encounter.  All manor of economy cars are clogging up lanes and people even seem to think it is appropriate to drive electrically powered automobiles.  Particularly offensive is anything that doesn’t have the class, elegance and unfettered weight of something like a Rolls. Find this 1975 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow offered for $8000 in San Jose, CA via craigslist.

This was a running and driving car, but the fan clutch recently went out,and it has a power steering leak.The car starts, but the fan blade hits the AC pump. I’ve had this car for a short while and enjoyed driving it. The body is straight, and the paint is shiny with only one small flaw. The interior is clean with minor wear. Keep in mind this is a 1975 car and not a 2018, with that said it need a little misc tlc. I would love to keep the car, but with the parking situation in South Bay and the time for me to spend fixing it is not feasible right now. I’m not in a financial bind, so don’t try to low ball me. If the car doesn’t sell, I will put it in storage till I have more time and space. 8000 firm!
