Restored Royce Rolls Once Again
For our new Forum Report feature we scour the internet in search of the best threads, the kind of hidden gems that you can read from beginning to end and not notice time pass. Check back frequently for new links to great build documentations, restorations, crazy engine swaps, “show and tell” threads, and everything else we love about automotive forums.
For our inaugural report we’ve found a guy restoring a RHD 1967 Rolls Royce Shadow. As purchased the stately old girl was relatively clean, and from what we gather a pretty good bargain to boot. It had presentable paint, nice interior, and the wood trim needed only a re-laquering to bring it back to its best. It even ran pretty well—the only major problem is that it didn’t move, the fault of a dead transmission. Easy fixes, right? Well, not so much. As anyone who’s ever embarked on a “partial” restoration will know, there’s no such thing as a partial restoration, the old Roller proving to be no exception.
Full of great photography, detailed and entertaining updates and good reader interaction, we really enjoyed this thread, and we’re sure you will too.
