Car description

This is a timeless symbol of elegance. The 1978 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow II is an icon of the upper class. And this example has the right level of preservation and restoration to make sure it upholds that image to the fullest. And it also has a terrific story!

The family story starts with the dentist for the Oakland Raiders. This was given to him as a gift in 1978, because after all, in the earlier days of football a dentist was especially valued. They even say that Super Bowl MVP Jim Plunkett had put the Raiders Super Bowl champions bumper sticker on the back. In fact, the depth of the black paint gives this the exact kind of appearance you want when you're looking for a car that will properly represent long-standing old-money opulence. Rolls-Royce's careful dedication to building the finest cars is seen from every angle with a sedan that continues to fit together beautifully. The doors open and close with a precision that has to be experienced to be believed, and the panel alignment is the result of a coachbuilt experience. It's this kind of attention to detail that makes a Rolls-Royce command respect everywhere it goes, and it is still very present in this example today.

Open the door, and you're treated to sumptuous Connolly tan leather seats. Color coordination is the key to a proper Rolls, and you see that in the dark wool carpets with piping that matches the interior tan. This leather and wool also nicely coordinate with the acres of real wood on the doors and dash. Luxury also means plenty of features, including power windows, power seats, power locks, and factory air conditioning. In fact, you'll love the originality on this one in everything from the classically thin steering wheel to the 8-track stereo.

The 6.75-liter V8 under the hood is a staple of Rolls-Royce luxury, and this looks to be original to the car. The has averaged less than 1,900 miles annually, so it hasn't led the life of the daily grind. The motor was engineered to always have power in reserve. In true luxury fashion, it's not delivered like a muscle car, but instead more like an express train. This is luxury for trips of all sizes thanks to a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and cruise control. The fully independent suspension glides over rough pavement like a hovercraft, and it stays sure-footed with four-wheel power disc brakes.

This is desire on wheels that also will always have a story to tell. It's an irresistible upper-class classic you need to get your hands on right now. Call today!!!
