When you think of luxury and pure class, the British come to mind, specifically Rolls-Royce. From building aircraft engines during the World Wars to producing some of the most luxurious and exclusive cars, the British automaker sure conquers what it sets out to do. If you wanted the best in terms of luxury during the 70s, the Rolls-Royce Shadow was the way to go, as an excellent example of the brand’s greatness. With a reported 28,000 miles on the clock, this is one great example and makes for the perfect Sunday cruiser.
With the Silver Shadow slowly becoming irrelevant in a fast-paced automotive world, Rolls-Royce sure had to keep up with the times. The vehicle was completely redesigned, and the Rolls-Royce shadow was born. This 1970 Rolls-Royce Shadow sports a custom beige exterior that brings out those long body lines. The commanding front grille and other exterior components are in really great shape. The car rides on its original hubcaps, which has a beige accent on it; the wheels are wrapped around a set of whitewall tires. With this car being British, the interior is one aspect to look forward to. The interior of this 1970 Rolls-Royce Shadow is finished off in beige. It is reported to be the car's original interior, with even the original Rolls-Royce carpets present in the car. The mix of wood, nickel and leather makes for a comfortable and plush ride feel, and air conditioning on the car ensures a comfortably cool drive.
A typical Rolls-Royce needs a significant powertrain to keep it chugging along with its relatively large size. Upon its introduction in the late 50's, the massive L410 engine powered multiple Rolls-Royce models as a reliable powertrain until 2020, evolving in size and technology throughout. This 1970 Rolls-Royce Shadow packs the 6.75L variant of the engine that should put out nearly 200hp to the rear wheels via an automatic gearbox. These engines were built for effortless cruising at low revs, not top-end power. This car has reportedly seen an engine tune-up for optimal efficiency, a new battery to rid of electrical gremlins, and reportedly new brakes to ensure this British land yacht stops on time.
