1971 Rolls Royce , Silver Shadow, Only 64k, Runs & Drives Great ! on 2040-cars
Seabrook, New Hampshire, United States
Here is an 1971 Rolls Royce, Silver Shadow sedan. This car only has 64,516 original miles. It is a 2 owner car that was garage kept. It has had recent work on the exhaust with several new parts, new water pump & coolant, new tires with less than 400 miles on them, the hydraulic suspension has also recently been worked on, the transmission has been rebuilt not more than 500 miles ago. It runs & drives great. Only has a few minor issues:
( drivers side window is really slow , rear pass window the same, 2 of the door lock knobs don't pop when it is unlocked so, you have to manually lift them. A/C Blows cool, but not ice cold. In the pictures you can see the vinyl top at the front & rear has been sealed because it was tearing. )
It is a great car to drive while picking away at the minor issues. This car rides like no other, very , very smooth. Paint still shows ok, it's a 10 footer. Has some minor issues, cracking in a few areas. Chrome is great. The car is being offered at no-reserve. It will sell to the highest bidder. NH doesn't issue titles for a car over 15years old. You can verify this on the NH DMV website. I do however have the previous owners title from MASS that is signed and open. It will come with a current registration & bill of sale, as well as the other title. That is all you will need. Other states are aware of title laws in other states. I have sold several vehicles through out the years all over the place without issue. Please ask all questions before bidding and good luck !!!
The car will come with the original owners book, jack, tool kit . I also have a full set of Workshop manuals for this car. There are 5 big binders. These are in great shape & very valuable. They will be offered to the winning bidder for an additional fee of $300 . unless the car goes beyond $4000. They will be included. They will be sold separately on another auction if the winner doesn't want them. They are worth far more than $300 for the set....

Rolls-Royce is headed to the 2013 Geneva Motor Show with a new addition to its lineup: the Wraith. The ultra-luxury automaker says it plans to start deliveries by the fourth quarter of this year, though details are scarce at the moment. The automaker has contented itself with saying the Wraith will the "most dynamic, powerful and beautiful Rolls-Royce in the company's history." We hear it will be the most modest, too.

Rolls-Royce first began using the Wraith nameplate in 1938. The original car used a tweaked version of the 4.3-liter inline six-cylinder found in the company's 25/30, but its real claim to fame came from the fact that it boasted speed-variable hydraulic dampers. Capable of reaching speeds of up to 85 miles per hour, Rolls-Royce only built 492 examples of the vehicle's chassis.
You can look for the new Wraith to bow at the Geneva Motor Show in March. In the interim, check out the shockingly bare press release below and get ready for a spate of teasers to follow.
While it isn't that uncommon to see cars belonging to celebrities and dignitaries roll across the auction block these days, this car is a little extra special. This particular 1979 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow was the car that Prince Charles and Princess Diana arrived at the White House in during a visit in 1985. As some added trivia, this was also the visit where Princess Di cut a rug with none other than John Travolta.

Volo Auto Museum will be auctioning off this piece of American and British history on November 9th - exactly 27 years from Princess Di's White House visit. According to the auction listing, this armored Silver Shadow was the official car of the UK's embassy, and it has been valued at around $2 million by the Berman Museum of History. The auction will have no reserve with some of the proceeds going to the Children with Cancer UK charity that Princess Diana started in 1988.
Scroll down for more information about this car and its auction as well as a video showing Prince Charles and Princess Diana arriving at the White House in the car back in 1985.
Those of you that took our tip and tuned in for last night's Academy Awards may have caught the latest iteration of the famous Grey Poupon commercials, featuring a pair of Rolls-Royce sedans and their condiment-loving stewards. The update to the 1981 commercial was only shown in part on television, however, as the mustard company directed viewers to its website to see the entirety of the Lost Footage spot. Of course if you didn't bother then, you can just scroll down to see the full-length two-minute commercial here.
As you're viewing, note that the Grey Poupon marketers did not, it would appear, get official sanction from Rolls-Royce this time around. While the Rollers in the commercial have all sorts of James Bond-like accouterments, they don't appear to have the official Spirit of Ecstasy hood ornaments, for example, and they have restyled lights and grilles. Check out the new spot below, and see if it stacks up to the iconic Pardon Me original.
