1968 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow Convertible 50,080 (Not Warranted) £25,000 - 30,000


This is a real Rolls Royce, one of only 109 RHD “Shadow 1” Convertibles made. These cars are Coachbuild (handmade) by H J Mulliner, Park Ward LTD. They only use the best materials. This delightful car comes with a great history file which is worth your time to go through but we will give you a sample of it.
This early Silver Shadow Convertible was supplied new by Mann Egerton Ltd, Norwich to L A Trafford Esq of Mulbarton Lodge, Norfolk originally registered to ‘GCL 11’. In September 2002 the Rolls-Royce was registered in Ireland, passing in 2006 to Robert Archibald of County Carlow. The immediately preceding owner had all the interior woodwork restored by A J Hickman of Lichfield in 2013 and then commissioned a mechanical refresh to include a brake service by PJG Autos of Bristol, which included new callipers, new master cylinder, new discs, etc. The steering box seals were replaced at the same time. The last registered keeper purchased the Shadow in August 2014, since when marque specialist Phil Murray of Devises has fitted new window seals, adjusted the wheel bearings, fitted new drive shaft universal joints, installed new carpets and made all the windows function properly. Finished in Regal Red with matching mohair hood and beige leather interior, ‘CBY 338G’ is described as in generally good condition.
Comes with two driver’s handbooks and a supplement. Passed the MOT with no advisories.
