1967 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow

What started out as an engine conversion due to a blown Rolls Royce engine and a defective braking system became a five year transformation. The new engine is a Chevy 350 fuel injected model with 350 HP and 400 foot pounds of torque. After seeing the engine I decided to customize the engine bay and update the braking system, while keeping true to the amazing Citroen brakes. The interior was completely redone with redyed seats, new carpet, a new headliner and refinished burl walnut trim. The exterior was completely stripped, repaired with lead and painted with a glass finish. It is a unique vehicle that is appreciated by the annual British Car Show in Chicago where it has won first place for two years. You will not find a better Rolls anywhere. It runs and sounds like no other.


More than $200,000 has been invested in this car.
This car is currently consigned to Dream Car Chicago.
