Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow “LWB” 1971 Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 Rare and desirable Long Wheel Base (“LWB”) in stunning virtual concours condition. This is a spectacular presenting, low mileage and excellent condition Silver Shadow Long Wheel Base (“LWB”) finished in the very regal combination of Garnet with beige Connolly Vaumol hides and matching Wilton wool carpets. It has a craftsman hand-painted single gold fine line to the waistlines and hubcap beauty trim rings.
A good indicator of a low mileage Silver Shadow that has been rarely used. For those who do not know, Vaumol hide was a special leather developed by Connolly Brothers that was not just plain color dyed, but has a deep darker toner rubbed into the leather to enrich the grain and natural pores of the leather. This was done when the leather was still in hide form.
This includes all the hydraulics and braking system. With the car having low mileage and all the signs of having been laid-up correctly, she is very tight and in true operating condition. The engine purrs and gear-change is smooth and quiet.

I have my own private Rolls-Royce workshop (not open to the public but dedicated to my own cars and fellow RR enthusiasts) with trained Rolls-Royce craftsmen who are proficient in all aspects.
