1980 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow II Shooting Brake

There was never, of course, an official factory-bodied estate version of the Shadow, but that did not deter those wealthy enough from commissioning their own, this example being created at the behest of the late John Entwhistle, legendary bass guitarist with 'The Who.' The coachbuilder is not known, but eight years ago, Bonhams sold a similar car that had been converted by FLM (Panelcraft) Ltd of South London.

The current vendor purchased this car from John Entwhistle's wife via Hanwells in West London seven years ago and then sent it to Coway coachbuilders in Bolton to be refurbished. The vehicle has been kept at an estate in Perthshire, Scotland, where it was mainly used for grouse shooting, and has been garage stored in a 'bubble' to maintain ideal air temperature. It has been routinely serviced by Alastair Scott of Abernethy, Perthshire, a recognized Rolls-Royce mechanical engineer, and over the last over seven years has not given any trouble. The car is offered with sundry restoration invoices, current MoT/tax, and Swansea V5C registration document.
