1977 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow II


  • Genuine low mileage and great original condition
  • Service history with many receipts
  • Very little use for last 20 years

The Appeal

In 1977, the Silver Shadow was renamed the Silver Shadow II, mostly in recognition of several major improvements, notably rack and pinion steering, while modifications to the front suspension improved handling markedly over the previous model. 

A distinctive feature was a high-pressure hydro-pneumatic self-levelling suspension system with added dual-circuit braking, which helped deliver that famous Rolls Royce ride comfort and quality.

This very stylish and clean Silver Shadow ll should make for a very attractive proposition if you’re looking for a useable and timeless classic with style and luxury like no other to take out on those special occasions, high days and holidays.

About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.
Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.


C&C prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.
Auctions are extended by 3-minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
  • If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
    • Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
    • We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.

Bid Amount Increment
£0 to £10,000 £100.00
£10,000 to £50,000 £250.00
£50,000 to £100,000 £500.00
£100,000+ £1000.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.
You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.

What are pre-bids?

A pre-bid means you’re able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.

Problem with your bid

Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
