1975 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow Long-Wheelbase Saloon
Chassis no. LRD21714
Engine no. 21714
Introduced in 1965, the Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow (and Bentley T-Series) represented a complete break with tradition, being the first of the Crewe factory's models to employ unitary construction, but nevertheless continued to be built to the highest of standards long associated with 'The Best Car in the World'. All-round independent suspension and power-operated four-wheel disc brakes appeared for the first time on a Rolls-Royce, and production cars boasted a roof line 4" lower than that of the preceding Silver Cloud. The power unit was the well-tried 90-degree V8, introduced on the Silver Cloud II, that would be enlarged to 6,750c in 1970. The long-wheelbase variant (know as the Formal Sedan in the USA) did not appear until 1969, its introduction coinciding with the entire range's standardisation around the Federal Safety Regulations. In addition to the 4" wheelbase stretch and lengthened rear doors, the long-wheelbase Shadow came with a discreetly smaller rear window, Everflex roof covering and, if ordered with limousine division, separate air conditioning for front and rear compartments. This long-wheelbase model was given its own name - Silver Wraith II - when the range was up-graded to Shadow II specification in February 1977.

This long-wheelbase 'Shadow was purchased by the current owner in 1999. Finished in dark blue with off-white leather interior, the car is described as in generally good condition and offered with the 1999 bill of sale and Austrian registration papers.
