1970 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow 2-Door Saloon by Mulliner Park Ward

Motorcar Studio is pleased to offer this 1970 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow two-door saloon by Mulliner Park Ward -- a rare coachbuilt model that would become the Corniche the following year. This example is finished in Regal Red with a biscuit interior and Everflex top. Older restoration with some cosmetic flaws but the mileage is believed original at 46,000 and it's in very good mechanical order. We recently drove it from Charleston, South Carolina to Savannah, Georgia and then on to Atlanta -- it sashayed along at 80 mph quietly and comfortably throughout the trip.

The restoration included taking much of the body down to bare metal; there was little in the way of underlying rust or damage. The stainless was polished and much of the chrome brightwork was replated -- and it remains in nice condition. The Everflex top was replaced at the time of restoration as it required removing the rear windows; it, too, remains in nice condition. While 20-plus years later the paint retains a nice shine, there are areas, most notably along the belt line crease, where the paint is lifting. We have also noted some filler in the left front rocker and low in the rear quarters. Overall it's a solid car and very attractive going down the road, but is not a show-quality example.

The interior is tidy with working power seats and gauges. The Connolly leather has some creasing; it was redyed during the restoration and is showing wear -- but there are no tears and it remains relatively soft. Carpets, headliner, dash are all in good condition. The windows work smoothly including the power operated rears. A/C has been converted to R134a and is blowing ice cold.

This Rolls starts effortlessly and idles nearly silently. The previous two owners spent a considerable amount of money and time on mechanical work and a number of service records are included. Notably the brakes and hydraulic system were recently refurbished including new brake hoses, hydraulic pumps, accumulators and valve bodies. Recent tune up including electronic ignition and coil, new cap and rotor, plugs and wires. Fuel system maintenance includes new SU double-ended fuel pump, new fuel tank sender, breather lines and fill tube, plus rebuilt carbs (with RR jets and new needles).

A number of spare parts are included along with the jack, spare tire, owners book, a written history about the restoration and eight binders of factory service manuals. An attractive coach built Rolls-Royce for MG money. For more information about this 1970 Rolls Royce Corniche for sale at Motorcar Studio in Atlanta, please call 404-692-5250.
