**SOLD** 1974 Rolls Royce Shadow


**SOLD** 1974 Rolls Royce Shadow

As with so many of these motor cars, supplied new by 'Jack Barclay Limited London' to Mr A Miller Esq London NW3 in June 1973.

Cost new £10,450 plus car tax of £820.83, number plates £5.50 and a full tank of petrol £12.

Early service stamps (4) note 'Mann Egerton & Co Ltd' undertaking the maintenance work. Another famous agent of the marque

In the history folder is also a copy of the vehicle build. Noting processes like, engine build, interior build etc.

What does make interesting reading is the amount of rectification work required after assembly. It must have taken them just as long to address these issues as the actual production itself. But credit to the marque, even the smallest imperfection or fault appears to have been noted.

The history folder goes on to hold a large number of receipts, previously issued MOT test certificates and more importantly two recent separate invoices totaling over £2300. These are for general service work.

The car is finished in Cardinal Red with Black leather, Fitted 8 track player, radio, rear head restraints and front fog lights.

On-site now for viewing.
