Footnotes

  • ‘In short: these cars combine advanced engineering and safety specifications with traditional Rolls-Royce standards of craftsmanship. In the manner of their performance they are as revolutionary as the Silver Ghost was 59 years ago,’ announced Rolls-Royce at the Silver Shadow’s launch in 1965.
    The foregoing was no mere flight of fancy, for with the introduction of the Silver Shadow, Rolls-Royce brought its body/chassis engineering bang up to date by switching to unitary construction, while retaining all the hallmarks of a traditional hand-crafted product. The Shadow’s all-round independent suspension and power-operated four-wheel disc brakes were both firsts for Rolls-Royce, and the new styling appealed to the younger generation of Rolls-Royce owner-drivers more prevalent from the mid-1960s onwards.
    We are advised that this right-hand-drive Shadow I was originally maintained by Rolls-Royce agents Hadley Green, of Barnet, Hertfordshire. Subsequently unused for many years, it was re-commissioned at Phoenix Cars, St Albans around 3-4 years ago and since then has been annually MoT’d for the road. The odometer displays a total of circa 18,000 miles, although it is not known if this is the genuine total from new. It is hoped that further information will be available at time of sale. Finished in silver grey/midnight blue with grey leather upholstery, the car is offered with current road fund licence, MoT to April 2007 and Swansea V5.
