Description

You are probably a lady or gentleman with a distinguished own style. You have worked hard throughout your life, and now it is time to reward yourself with a classic car. The first question is which one? An Italian sports car is not for you, no room for the rest of the family and the dog. A German car is also not what you desire, ok for everyday use, but you are looking for something to make you feel special in the weekend. You Sir/Madam are searching for an aristocratic British limousine. Oh but wait! No we have not forgotten the dog! You wish can be fulfilled probably thanks to the late Clyde Cassidy’s thoughts. Cassidy was an American Rolls-Royce enthusiast. Cassidy was not interested in 100% original cars, he preferred something different. If that different did not exist, he would simply create it himself. Cassidy saw British limousine’s more as a blanc canvas, something to create something beautiful from. This Rolls-Royce is certainly special. Cassidy not only loved extraordinary body shapes, he was also a perfectionist. The transformation of this Silver Shadow has been executed to an exacting standard. The quality was so good that Cassidy even received a letter from a Mr. Reynolds on behalf of Rolls-Royce Motorcars in the UK complimenting him with the transformation. This transformation from saloon to station-wagon is beyond compare. Most people believe that this Rolls-Royce left the factory as a station-wagon. Every detail is correct. The carpets have been manufactured correctly, the interior ornamental strips have been made to fit perfectly. A YouTube film at the time revealed that those ornamental strips cost a fortune. The fact that the total transformation cost over 100,000 US dollars is not lost when viewing the car. Even though just carried out by just one man instead of one the big design houses, this is coach-building of the upmost quality. The Silver Shadow was a modern car for its time. It was the first Roller with a monocoque as opposed to a body-on-frame construction as well as being the first with disc brakes and independent rear suspension. Mechanical aspects were happily also not overlooked. The car wallet contains a recent invoice for over 10,000 US dollars and shows us that all matter of mechanical issues were attended to. The bodywork and chassis condition are particularly good. The car has fine panels with correct alignment, the lacquer too has been nicely cherished. The interior is quite stunning and has built up a fine patina. Transformation from limousine to station-wagon has naturally added some extra weight, although nothing to embarrass the 6.2 Litre V8. As Rolls-Royce used to say when someone informed after the car’s power: Ample! The same goes for this Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow station-wagon. If you just happen to be searching for a unique Rolls-Royce with oodles of practicality, then we believe we may just have the right one for you!
