1968 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow

Supplied with and extensive history folder where the cars ownership history has been explored in relative detail. 

Ordered new in 1968 by 'Mr Oswald Charles Strickland' in the colour of 'Black Pearl'.

At the time 'OC.Strickland' was a well known London businessman with interests in many companies. Notes and history are supplied in the folder which makes interesting reading. You are invited to read through when you are on site viewing.

The car had a colour change circa 1980 to White and remained in this form until undergoing a 'total body restoration' in 2017 / 2018 and returning to the original Black Pearl. It is noted this work was at a cost exceeding £15,000. The hand written notes also suggest there were photographs of this work in the history folder. (No images can be found by us & there are no invoices in the folder)

It was at this point the car was reunited with the original registration number 'WME 8G'
