When the Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow was released to the public in
October 1965. the development departments were showing the result
of work carried out over a period of some ten years. The new series
was characterised by surprisingly modern features and. with their
development. Rolls-Royce broke new ground and away from many sacred
design principles. The new models were technically striking in
three ways; a monocoque chassis was used. all wheels were sprung
independently and four-wheel disc brakes now ensured stopping power
of the kind expected in a modern car. Under the bonnet. the V8
engine which had been introduced in the Silver Cloud series was
employed. In February 1977. the Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow II was
introduced. Outwardly. the models were identifiable by bumpers with
rubber inserts and edges made from polyurethane. The most notable
changes mechanically were to the rack and pinion steering and
modifications to the front suspension which markedly improved
handling. The Silver Shadow Long Wheelbase was renamed the Silver
Wraith in 1976 and a total of 2. 35 examples were manufactured. In
addition to the additional legroom. the Silver Wraith was
identifiable by a smaller rear window. Everflex roof and different
wheel covers.

Originally registered on 3rd March 1980. this Silver Wraith is
finished in silver with a cream interior. Supplied with a V5
registration document and a current MoT test certificate valid
until September 2016. this Rolls Royce Silver Shadow has just been
treated to a full service and is in beautiful condition. Described
as driving with no known faults. this delightful Rolls-Royce offers
enormous luxury for a modest outlay.
