1976 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow STK 1391.mp4
When the double "R" badge turns a corner, everyone notices it. You cannot
blend a Rolls Royce with the other cars traveling down the street. It only
takes one glimpse and you know you're looking at something different. Rolls
Royce has been the definition of luxury since they first opened there
doors. This Silver Shadow shows the quality that goes into making these
cars. Although this car was produced in 1976 it still looks remarkable. The
two tone color scheme of minty green and black sets things off in
traditional Rolls Royce style. All the chrome is in outstanding condition
along with thick crystal clear glass. The over sized wheels are color
matched, the hood ornament is gleaming, and the grill flashes light off the
front like a chandler. In other words, a Rolls Royce is coming your way.
Inside you wouldn't expect anything less than A1 quality, and that's
exactly what you get. The seats are the same minty green as the paint,
leather of course. From the passenger side to the driver's side everything
is beveled into warm wood grain, along with the steering wheel. The
condition of the leather is outstanding. The same can be said for the head
lining, the door panels and floors. Proper care was issued when taking care
of this car. Sitting inside the Shadow you cannot help but feel safe.
Almost like getting into a German tank, with plush padded leather seating
The Silver Shadow came equip with a hydraulic ride leveling system
developed by Citro�n. When in reverse the car actually leans back, giving
you the proper weight distribution and view of the road behind you. While
driving it kneels forward a bit, keeping the powerful 6.7 liter V8 from
lifting the car's hood off the road.
Independent suspension, disc brakes, power locks, power windows, power
steering, and many more things that we take for granted today, were
standard on the Shadow. The engine is mated up to a numbers matching turbo Hydromatic 400 transmission. This car
runs over instantly and rolls along almost like an ocean wave. It takes
off, it stops, but never abruptly, it just fades away quickly and smoothly.
You cannot hide class. This car actually spent quite a while in a
Washington D.C. museum if you had concerns on the condition. This car is
priced to sell. If you've always wanted a piece of luxury that still stands
up to the cars of today, this is it.
This vehicle is located in our Charlotte, NC showroom. For more

Austin Allegro: The Car's The Star Part Two
Part two of Quentin Willson's look at the Allegro. Apologies for the poor
quality 3/4 of the way through but this is due to a damaged tape. The
silence mid way through is due to an ABBA song on the soundtrack that upset
the copyright owner and it was blocked so I had to edit it out and upload
it again. Quentin only talks about colours and trim in this section.
