Rolls Royce ‘Rat Look’ Silver Shadow 1972

A 1972 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow. Commissioned by Robert Maxwell courtesy of Jack Barclays in Oxford and owned by the family until 2021. Rolls Royce have supplied all of the paperwork and original signed order for by Maxwell at the time of purchase. The car has been used sparingly until it was commissioned for a re paint that, as you can see, didn’t happen. This has left a unique ‘Rat Look’. The car was placed in storage from 2008 until 2021.
This car has undergone an awful lot of work to ensure it passed an MOT with no advisories in 2022. A complete overhaul of the fuel system, hydraulic braking system, Brakes and associated pipework. the list is endless as are the bills. However we have retained the paint work as was. The interior is complete and in typical Rolls Royce fashion, everything works, even the 8 Track!

All inspections are welcome. Please call John McGurk to discuss this very unique vehicle.

Take a look at this blog written last year:

The registration ’76 R’ has been removed and is not part of the sale.
