1976 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow I, Beautiful car in fair to good condition, everything is original Powered by a V8
engine paired to a 3 speed automatic transmission. The car has 26,952 original miles.

BODY: The overall body condition is an 8-9 with two small minor dents. One on the leading edge of the left rear
wheel well opening and the other on the right rear fender at and below the side running light. The paint is
scratched on the right front passenger door with no other paint scratches. I expect the dents can be removed using
paintless dent removal. All of the glass is in excellent condition.

PAINT: The overall paint condition is a 3-4. I found one deep scratch on the right front passenger door. Most of
the horizontal surfaces show light cracking much like lacquer paint used to do in times past. There is some
discoloration on the hood and trunk. I believe this paint is two-stage either acrylic or urethane? Given the body
is in such great condition, I believe a respray of the car with very minimal bodywork is needed.

TOP: The vinyl top needs a complete replacement. There is evidence of surface rust under areas that are exposed but
I could not find any areas that were rusted through. Somewhat normal for vinyl tops that are 45 years old.

CHROME: The chrome is in very good condition. An exception would be some light pitting on the front bumper and
light scratches on the rear bumper. The rear bumper rubber on the left side is damaged and will need to be

DASH/INSTRUMENTS: The overall dash is in good condition. The area of the ignition switch has most of the paint
chipped off from the key ring. There are two radios both am/fm in the car. There is also evidence that the car may
have been equipped with an early mobile phone mounted between the front seats. There are4 small holes and a large
hole in the console consistent with a radio/telephone in addition to a cellular antenna on the right rear quarter
panel. Due to the battery/not running issue I was unable to test any of the instruments or features.

INTERIOR/UPHOLSTERY: The seats are free of any tears and are not damaged in any way. The dash cap has a couple of
scratches as does the right A pillar that look like an animal may have caused them. The door upholstery is also
complete and without tears or blemishes. The wood garnish finish is showing cracking and some of the urethane is
chipping off of a couple of doors and is faded on the other doors. The bottom windshield garnish is pitted. I
believe all 5 garnish pieces will need resurfacing. The headliner is intact and in good condition. The package tray
shows evidence of staining and will need attention. Carpeting seems good in all areas except under the driver’s
footwell. I found a plastic for sale sign under the floor mat and it had trapped a significant amount of
moisture/heat, (muffler directly below?) causing some of the floor insulation and soundproofing to deteriorate.
There are two remaining very thick floormats in the trunk; one is fairly faded and the other is in fair condition.

TIRES/HUBCAPS: The hubcaps are in good condition with little to no rash on any. The tires are Michelin and have
excellent tread.

TRUNK: The carpeting is in pretty good shape except for the piece that covers the battery compartment. The lower
area of battery area carpeting is deteriorating and will have to be repaired or replaced. The tools that come with
the car are mostly available except for the case that holds them. The jack is included and stored in the trunk

Work begins on new Rolls-Royce Phantom, PHEV likely

Fri, 16 May 2014

After reporting that a new Rolls-Royce Phantom would arrive sometime around 2017 in the same timeframe as a Rolls-Royce SUV, Autocar has a few more details on the next coming of the massive English sedan. Both its skin and its bones are being worked out right now, brand design head Giles Taylor telling the magazine that his team is "treading an evolutionary path" with the model, suggesting it will have "more charisma and more edge" as part of a future design language that will have "a charismatic expressiveness."
True, that gives us absolutely no indication of what the car will look like, but it seems fair to assume it will feature more curves and detailing than the present car. The long C-pillar will remain, though, the privacy it affords being "part of the Phantom recipe."
What's underneath could be more detailed as well, the report saying BMW is mulling an i3 kind of build, with an aluminum chassis supporting a carbon fiber bodyshell. Assuming production considerations and costs could be kept in line, the benefits would be a lighter car that offers more latitude with the design, easier implementation of new bodystyles and the segment's technology crown. A lighter Phantom would bring further rewards for its PHEV variant, which Autocar says is "a certainty."

Rolls-Royce celebrates Maharajas with special Phantom DHC

Fri, 14 Nov 2014

A century ago, the princes and maharajas of India shared a relationship with Rolls-Royce that spanned five decades and saw the nobility on the subcontinent commissioning over 840 unique vehicles from the stoic marque. It's that golden age that Rolls-Royce celebrates with the debut of this one-of-a-kind luxury cabriolet.
Based on the Phantom Drophead Coupe, this unique Maharaja edition is distinguished by such special touches as Carrara White paint embellished with a peacock motif, emerald green coachline, a deep green top (hood in UK terminology), light creme leather interior with green accents, marquetry inlays and custom seashell embroidery.
Said to be two years in the making by the Rolls-Royce Bespoke division, this one-off Phantom DHC was unveiled not in India, but in Dubai, where a fascination with the Golden Age of the Raja is evidently alive and well.

Rolls-Royce teases Wraith debut in Geneva

Fri, 18 Jan 2013

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.
