Given a light restoration just a few years ago, this special long wheelbase 1976 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow (the VIN begins with an L, so it's four inches longer than a standard Silver Shadow) presents in unusual and distinctive Light Ocean Blue over Royal Blue with a white vinyl top. As a clean, original car, it required very little metalwork or rust repair before the high-quality two-stage urethane paint was sprayed, and thanks to advanced paint technology it likely looks better today than it did when it was new. The white vinyl top was replaced with the correct material and the installation was done to Rolls-Royce standards. All the trim, from the famous Rolls-Royce grille to the stainless and chrome, is in exceptional original condition, which should give you a good indication of how nicely preserved this car really is. It has obviously never seen inclement weather, and whenever it was stored, it was in a climate-controlled environment. Inside, the beautiful blue leather upholstery is still supple and fragrant, and entering a Rolls-Royce is an experience to savor. The carpets were recently refreshed with correct wool replacements, but the seats, door panels, and headliner are original equipment. Individual front bucket seats are separated by a beautifully finished console and each has its own separate arm rest. The burled walnut dashboard has been restored to new condition, and all the gauges are fully functional, while the A/C blows ice cold. The solid feeling of the heavy metal handles and knobs, and the precision feel of every single component will delight you. In back, the four extra inches of wheelbase translate into a commodious passenger compartment that is truly first class, right down to the carpeted foot rests. The original entertainment system has been replaced by a modern flip-face Kenwood AM/FM/CD setup which sounds spectacular in the incredibly silent Rolls-Royce passenger compartment. Power comes from Rolls-Royce's familiar 6.75 liter V8 and is mated to a TH400 3-speed automatic supplied to Rolls-Royce by General Motors. Orderly and clean, the engine bay shows signs of regular use as well as regular maintenance, both critical to these cars' longevity. Recent service work ensures that it is in top mechanical condition, ready to go at a moment's notice. The chassis is clean and solid, with no signs of rust. The brakes are powerful, and the sophisticated suspension rides like nothing you've ever experienced before. Recent whitewall radial tires have been installed on the original wheels with traditional Rolls-Royce wheelcovers that have been painted to match the body. Documentation includes all the original manuals, brochures, and other paperwork that came with every new Rolls-Royce in 1976. This car represents the opportunity to pick up a fully sorted vehicle of distinction that will be a pleasure to drive for years to come.
