"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, while the new styling appealed to the younger generation of Rolls-Royce owner-drivers more prevalent from the mid-1960s onwards. The existing 6.2-litre V8 continued in the Shadow until the need to maintain power while conforming to US emissions regulations saw it enlarged to 6,750cc in 1970. Notable prior developments had included the adoption of GM400 automatic transmission and air conditioning as standard.
A desirable early-type Silver Shadow, built before the need to conform to the USA's safety laws saw the original's clean lines somewhat spoiled by large, 'impact resistant' bumpers on the Shadow II, this example has been stored for a number of years and will require re-commissioning - including a set of new tyres - before it returns to the road. Finished in silver blue with light blue leather interior, this is a solid example that is running and driving. Offered with a V5C document.
