The Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow was the first Rolls-Royce to be
constructed using a monocoque chassis and to date has the largest
production volume of any Rolls-Royce. The original Shadow was 3½
inches narrower and 7 inches shorter than the Silver Cloud which it
replaced but managed to offer increased passenger and luggage space
thanks to more efficient packaging made possible by its advanced
design.

The superb ride quality in the Silver Shadow was achieved due to
the innovative high-pressure hydraulic system with dual-circuit
braking and hydraulic self-levelling suspension. In short. there is
nothing quite like riding in a Rolls-Royce. and this example is no
exception.

The levels of comfort are manifold. from the optional factory
cruise control installed to the sumptuous tan leather and burr
walnut dashboard. This. now very collectable. series one version is
presented in Peacock Blue with a contrasting tan trim. The
accompanying history is extensive. as the current owner for the
last 35 years has used and enjoyed the car. The change of
ownerships detailed simply relate to events between the vendor and
his company. The invoices showing are from specialists
including RR&B Motors. Lex Mead and. more recently. Ghost
Motors where a recent service costing over £1. 00 took place. A
current 12 month MoT test certificate is also included. The Silver
Shadow series I has a more pure shape. with chrome bumpers. and are
often more sought after than the series II model and for that
classic period accessory. this elegant example come complete with a
period telephone handset!
