80% Complicated: 1971 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow

Never has a Freudian craigslip been so totally appropriate than the following: "1971 Rolls Royce Silver shadow White/ Black leather interior 11K Original miles this car recently been painted it has a two tone color white and gray. New tires, New interior, car runs and drives.80% complicated."  Find it here on craigslist offered for $10,000 in Covina, CA.


The Silver Shadow was released in 1965 as Rolls-Royce's low end luxury offering, replacing the outgoing Silver Cloud, but not up to the imperial standards of the Phantom (or Silver Wraith).   What you got was a 6.75 liter L410 V8 mated to a GM TurboHyrdamatic 400 slushbox.  The seller says the car runs and drives, but needs some attention to become 100% complicated.

  1. From my understanding, if the brakes still have to be done, then even is everything else is perfect, it's still 80% complicated... :-)
