New Dutch periodic inspection valid until 2022, after that it will be exempt from inspections in the Netherlands. A good and beautiful Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow from the first series.

They were the most beautiful with chrome bumper rosettes, the two stunning chrome exterior mirrors and the nice dashboard. The car was used for years by a large hotel in the Netherlands for anniversaries and special occasions. In white with dark grey leather upholstery which is still original. The original, thick, dark grey Connolly leather creates a nice, stylish contrast with the burl wooden dashboard and the chrome finish.

The Rolls-Royce with chassis number SRH 7127 was always driven with care by the same driver, it was well maintained. It starts immediately and runs evenly. The V8 with 6L is very powerful and reacts immediately. The automatic gearbox shifts very well and the brakes and shock absorbers work well, as they’re supposed to in a Rolls. The hydraulic system was fully checked recently, new calipers have been fitted.

The car is equipped with an 8-track recorder and a Motorola radio with electric antenna. It’s all from 1969 and thankfully not modernized. The carpet is neat and the car has 4 good Goodyear tyres. The matching original jack is included.

The Silver Cloud is 51 years old and has aged well, it was maintained well and driven with great care. It only had one business driver according to the Dutch national road traffic administration (Nederlandse Rijksdienst). There’s always some wear to be found, the electric sliding roof is fixed, but it remains a nice, reliable and fine car. Beautiful paint and a sleek look. The appraiser was very enthusiastic about the overall condition. And attractively priced!

You’re welcome to view the car for a thorough inspection and a possible test drive. We can supply foreign buyers with the correct export document free of charge for easy registration of the Rolls. We’ll gladly help with finding suitable, professional transport to your location.
