This very attractively-finished Shadow II has benefited from a full bare metal repaint as recently as June last year. It's also been treated to new front and rear screens, tyres and carpets. The subtle Green bodywork is offset by a Cream-coloured hide interior. The odometer currently reads an unwarranted but perfectly feasible 72,488 miles, and the vendor presently regards the Rolls' bodywork, paintwork, interior trim, V8 engine and automatic transmission as all being in 'excellent' order. He is offering 'CYH 309V' complete with a comprehensively maintained service book containing 21 stamps from a blend of main dealers and marque specialists, 20 or so invoices for work carried out and 12 old MOTs, plus one valid to August 17th 2017. Introduced in 1977, the Shadow II's upgrades over its predecessor included: rack-and-pinion steering and revised front end suspension geometry, plus a change of carburettors, exhaust and cooling fans all aimed at improving fuel consumption.
