That's How We Roll
…or more accurately, that’s how we would roll if we had $230,000 to drop on a Roller.
Hemmings inaccurately titles this the “Find of the Day”. More like find of the millenium. Unfortunately, those cruel elitist bastards only saw fit to grant us one picture of this 1970 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow that ran in the 1981 Paris-Dakar Rally.
From the auction listing, we learn it’s actually a fiberglass monocoque body on a classic 4×4 Toyota FJ Chassis with a Chebbie 350 backed up by a 4-speed. How many gallons is 400L? Because that’s how much gas it’ll carry.
Let no man, woman or child speak ill of yellow headlights on classic race cars. That they are the bees knees is a Universal (Hooniversal?) Truth.
