Back in the UK I worked on a few of these and About the only thing inexpensive on a Silver Shadow or Wraith is the transmissions as they are GM sourced. The brakes are a Citroen design but due to the various RR modifications a rebuild is easily $5k. The motors are pretty unstressed as they are a 6.7 liter but you are still looking at some serious coin if it has had issues. The interiors are horrendously expensive to restore (Wilter carpets and Connolly hides) and do not like hot climates. Yes you can buy a late 20th Century RR for what looks like a low price of entry but upkeep will beggar you.
