A car like this 1969 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow is all about turning heads. While you can also get attention in a growling muscle car, a vintage Rolls like this is just the kind of machine that makes you memorable for your taste. It's the kind of elegance where people will never believe you paid such a low price (and no one says you have to tell them.)
Having the iconic and imposing grille leading the way is worth the price all on its own. Still, we especially like this one because this .....
generation of Rolls-Royce is one of the most iconic styles around. They seemed to understand how flowing lines are the best ways to show grace. That's why the rounded fender tops seem to create a stream that follows the full trim line until it reaches the tapered rear end. And the red paint with black vinyl roof has a timeless sense of appeal. And for a Rolls, the elegance is in the details. That's why the door handles are disguised within the side trim and the wheel covers are color-coordinated to the body. The paint and presentation here are not perfect, and the value price reflects creating room in your budget for any updates or upgrades you may want to do. Even with imperfections seen today, it does not take away from the quality and prestige of a hand-crafted vehicle.
The interior keeps a highly original style, and that's a good thing. For example, Rolls leather is some of the best in the world where they take extra time and care to choose the best hides, and that quality can be lost if just redone by some random trim shop. In fact, some of us like the way they look with a little wear-in just so no one is accused of being part of the ""new rich."" Real wood trim, plush carpeting, and plenty of room to spread out really remind you why this is an internationally recognized symbol of luxury. You get a commanding driver's position with power front seats and a firm grip on the glossy black steering wheel. Details like power windows and provisions for factory air conditioning (it will need servicing to blow cold again) remind you just how impressive this 1960s luxury sedan can be. It's a preserved car and that means you get all the right little details, like the Motorola AM/FM stereo and extra footrests for the rear passengers is a true classic British touch. These are the little details that often get lost in hastily restored vehicles, and so they are exciting to see when you're a classic car aficionado.
The 6.2-liter V8 under the hood is a staple of Rolls-Royce luxury. This has been under the care of the same collector for over 15 years, and so it remains a strong runner with a smooth nature. 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, and an exceptionally supple ride. We even have a $6k receipt from 2017 for servicing the four-wheel power disc brakes, and the difference is felt today by the way this stops with confidence.
This is an attractive luxury for a very attractive price. So the first step to being upper-class tomorrow is when you call today!
