800 Derita Road, Ste. A
This is a timeless symbol of elegance. The 1969 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow II is an icon of the upper class, and this example has the right level of preserved opulence to make sure it upholds that image to the fullest.
The color theme of this sedan is the kind sophisticated arrangement that instantly reminds you why Rolls-Royce is the best. The light blue paint has a hint of metallic to look nice in the sunshine. The piano black on the roof is not the kind of color you'd see on a typical two-tone, but once people view this combo, they'd wish it was on their car, too. It also helps that the black coordinates with the inner wheel color and deeply tinted windows for true harmonized style. This is not a recent paint application, but its comprehensive look and nice shine give it that old-money style you want in a car like this. And this also retains Rolls-Royce's handcrafted quality. 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 leather seats. Color coordination is the key to a proper Rolls, and you see that in how the upholstery goes with the door panels and carpeting. There's are even plush floor mats done in a deeper blue, which adds a splash of added of color without deviating from the theme. Luxury also means plenty of features, including power windows, power front seats, a later AM/FM/cassette stereo, and acres of real wood on the doors and dash. The air conditioning has been converted to modern R134a, and it's believed to only need a recharge to keep everyone nice and cold again. This example really feels complete, right down to the footrests for the rear passengers.
The 6.2-liter V8 under the hood is a staple of Rolls-Royce luxury. The consignor believes this is the original motor for the car, and that the low odometer reflects the total mileage. That would mean averaging less than 750 miles annually, so it hasn't led the life of the daily grind. The way the motor fires up readily and runs like a true smooth Rolls also reaffirms the idea of proper care. This V8 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, four-wheel power disc brakes, and an exceptionally supple ride.
This is desire on wheels that also will always get the right kind of attention. It's an irresistible upper-class classic you need to get your hands on right now.
