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.
    'OCV 466F' was first registered on 7th June 1968 and is presented in dark metallic blue with contrasting blue leather trim. The car comes with Rolls-Royce service history and 17 expired MoTs suggesting that the recorded mileage of 33,000 is correct. We are advised that the engine and gearbox operate as they should and that correct pressures and temperatures are displayed on the gauges. When the Shadow was MoT'd prior to this sale, the test centre remarked that its underside was 'remarkably good'. The car would benefit from localised paintwork refurbishment or alternatively a complete re-spray to bring it back to 'as new' condition, while the cabin features superb leather with only the veneer woodwork requiring minor attention to make it superb. All in all a wonderful opportunity to acquire a 'time warp' example of this most popular Rolls-Royce. The car is offered with MoT/tax to August 2013 and Swansea V5.
