Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow Additional Information
This late Series 1 Silver Shadow was registered on the 18th February 1975 by Channel Islands dealer St. Helier Garages Ltd for a Mr A. E. Hatton of St. Brelade, Jersey. Specified in Peacock blue metallic paint & gold fine lines, with Surf blue to the hide, carpets and lambswool rugs. Options include plain Sundym glass, Blaupunkt Frankfurt stereo & Avon radial tyres. In 1983 the car was registered to the mainland as KAL 937N, the number it retains to this day. Servicing during this time was undertaken by Lex Mead of Maidenhead, Berkshire. Their service stamp in the maintenance booklet shows a mileage of 9,036 in 1983 reflecting its limited use on Jersey. Lex Mead continued to service the car until 1993 when respected Rolls-Royce & Bentley specialists Frank Dale & Stepsons took over. Thereafter Royce Engineering of Dorking, Surrey maintained the Silver Shadow between 1997 and 2007. Service invoices from this period are to Mr R. Gray, Miss G. Gray and Mr. S. Gray, presumably of the same family. In February 2007 the Silver Shadow was purchased by a Mr Wilkinson of Newcastle upon Tyne before, in November of the same year, passing on to another Newcastle resident, a Mr W. Wilson. He kept the car for nearly ten years, covering less than 400 miles during his tenure. With one further owner since June 2016 the car still boasts only 34,000 miles. Supplied with its original large & small tool kit, original lambswool rugs & footstools. Also present is the original documentation wallet containing owner’s handbook, stamped service booklet & Rolls-Royce sales & service handbook. There is also an original Rolls-Royce Motors envelope containing a Blaupunkt radio circuit diagram sheet & guarantee card, RR paint care leaflet, RR tyre-specification card, RR/Pioneer QP-444 eight track tape player instruction booklet and guarantee card. Also included is a history file containing original invoices, MoT certificates and a copy of the original factory build sheets & warranty card.
