Somewhat Unusually

This misty photo of a Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow 2-door saloon, chassis #CRH9543, comes from a Bonhams catalogue for a sale at the Beaulieu National Motor Museum, July 2002:

It is described as having silver coachwork with, "somewhat unusually", a dark blue painted roof, rather than the more typcial everflex, and a matching blue leather interior.

Despite being offered in good condition, complete with comprehensive history file, it failed to sell against a guide of GBP 12-14,000.

It subsequently appeared at Bonhams' Rockingham Castle sale in June 2008, and here are photos from the on-line catalogue...

The second photo really shows off the painted roof:

Described as has having service history with P&A Wood and Broughtons of Chelteham and with 93,065 recorded miles, it sold for GBP 7,475 including premium.
