Peter Vardy Heritage showcase one of only 606 2-door saloons hand-crafted by Mulliner Park Ward. The Silver Shadow II was introduced in 1966. Blending speed with refinement in a way that few rivals could match, it is powered by a 6230cc OHV V8 engine allied to automatic transmission. Trimmed with a superlative mix of sumptuous leather hides, rich wood veneers and deep lambswool carpets, this model was every bit as luxurious as it was expensive. Manufactured in March 1968, copies of factory records, which we have on file, show that this right-hand drive example was sold new by Jack Barclay in London to Melbray Group Limited of London, SW1, believed to be for the use of Sir W.F. Beale. Factory warranty cards record the next owner as a Mr Frohlich of Mayfair who acquired the car in 1971. The enormous quantity of invoices in the voluminous history file reveal subsequent owners and in 1991 XBY 130F (as it was known then) was purchased by a RREC member in Sweden. Also on file are a number of photographs documenting an engine overhaul along with the original Rolls Royce Service and Handbooks. Upon returning to the UK in 2015, the car was reported to have had a "thorough engine overhaul by Bengt Stange" and a "respray in its original livery" during 2012.
