TBU 235R has covered just 48000 miles from new and has spent much of its life in the South West leading a very sheltered life. Our Rolls Royce left the factory finished in Acrylic Brewster Green with Dark Green Everflex roof and Tan upholstery and in 1979, at two years old was sold to a Mr A W Kingdon in Braunton, Devon with a mileage of 9541 miles. Mr Kingdon was the retired owner of a registered house building contracting business and on initial purchase in 1979 he hired out the Rolls Royce to his Limited Company for the use of the Chairman who covered 6234 miles in the car. A letter from A.W Kingdon & Co Ltd, signed by one of the Directors is on file confirming the arrangement.
In 1980 the owner then placed his private registration mark 78 AWK onto the Rolls Royce and over a 20-year period covered 30000 miles, keeping the car maintained with no expense spared at his local franchised dealership on Exeter Road in Braunton. Pages and pages of invoices from the 1980's and 1990's are on file from ‘The Braunton Garage' who would regularly collect and re-deliver the car on behalf of its elderly owner. The service history throughout the long-term ownership is exceptional, detailing all maintenance carried out over the 20 year plus period. On the passing of the car's elderly owner in 2000, the Rolls Royce sold to the proprietor of a Devon based Travel business having covered 44,600 miles from new.
The Rolls Royce was very much in gentle use throughout the 2000's, covering less than 1500 miles in 20 years with its-second-long term Devon based owner. Although mileage was incredibly low, the Shadow was being annually MOT tested and by late 2020 the car made its way north to Yorkshire. At 46126 miles the car was put through Rolls Royce specialists in Leeds for a full service that also included new drive belts, new diff torque mountings, new height control valve flexi hoses, new front caliper brake pipes, new front subframe brake pipes, renewed front suspension complient mounting and all electrics windows were renewed. In total £3600 was spent ensuring the Rolls Royce was once again ready for regular use.
TBU 235R came to us and we supplied the car to one of our local long term regular customers who has enjoyed using the car for short distance, but regular classic motoring ever since. Prior to selling the car, we prepared the car spending over £7500 and work included rear brake pads, handbrake pads, rear brake discs, new stub axle nuts, rear hub assemblies, rebuilt power steering pump, new pump pulley, new steering hose, new ball joint kits, new electronic ignition kit, and a full service. As result, the Rolls Royce has proven completely reliable over regular use and has been driving superbly for our local customer.
Our lovely Shadow II presents incredibly well with a lovely, aged, and honest paint finish. It has the feel of a low mileage, low ownership car and is structurally exceptional with a superb well-presented underbody and no signs of corrosion in the usual common areas such as wheel arches. Recently the original chrome bumper trims have been renewed and as result look superb, and the interior is absolutely first class with stunning Tan leather upholstery, exceptional woodwork, beautiful wool carpets, a near perfect clean headlining and smart boot compartment. Our Shadow II interior looks as you would expect a car with 20,000 miles, it is beautifully kept and offers comfort and luxury. On the road TBU 235R doesn't disappoint, the engine performs perfectly, the gear shift smooth and the car handles and rides correctly offering a smooth, comfortable, relaxed drive.
