This impeccable three owner (two from the same family) example has covered only 22,000 miles in forty-five years. The car was originally ordered by a Mr. F. Farey of Girton, Cambridgeshire from Murkett Brothers, the Rolls-Royce Distributors of Peterborough. A letter in the history file to Mr. Farey dated May 1972 states that Murkett Brothers were unable deliver a new Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow for sixteen months, a testament to the high demand for the model at the time. On completion the new car was registered NEW 70M on the 1st August 1973, the number it retains to this day. Sadly, according to a handwritten note in the history file Mr. Farey died shortly after taking delivery and the car passed to his nephew, Mr. R. Everdell of Huntingdon. Stamps in the service schedule show that Murkett Brothers maintained the Silver Shadow until 2004 when, with 20,000 miles showing on the odometer, it was purchased by its last owner, a Professor residing in Peterborough. Maintenance responsibilities passed to Rolls-Royce Specialists Colbrook, also of Peterborough and in November 2018 the car was also fully recommissioned by Colbrook. Works at that time included new front and rear brake calipers and pads, new front dampers, four new tyres and a service. Invoices totalled ?5,600. This lovely Silver Shadow comes with an extensive history file that contains many original documents, invoices, MOT certificates and tax discs. Also present is the original sales brochure with a Murkett Brothers stamp to the front cover. The car also has its large and small toolkits and the keys and spare keys are the originals. In the glovebox is the original handbook wallet containing hardback Owner?s Handbook, stamped Service Schedule, Warranty card, Rolls-Royce Sales & Service booklet and Owner?s Information booklet. Today the car is a wonderfully well-preserved and original example in a particularly attractive period colour scheme. The interior smells just right and the leather has never been connollised. This is without doubt one, if not the nicest preserved example I know off ! May PX. .
