History : By late 1965 the production of the popular Silver Cloud III drew to a close and a new chapter began in the history of Rolls-Royce with the introduction of the Silver Shadow. From a design perspective, the new Silver Shadow was a major departure from previous models. Rolls-Royces chief designer, the late John Blatchley was entrusted with the styling of the new model. A number of new mechanical innovations were also introduced which included unitary construction, disc brakes and hydraulic self-levelling suspension. The Silver Cloud III’s 6.2 litre power unit was retained until late 1969 when the engines capacity was increased to 6,750cc. The overall result was a motor car equipped with all the luxuries that Rolls-Royce were famous for in a form more suitable for modern motoring. In 1976 the second series of Silver Shadows were released, with rack and pinion steering and updated bumpers. Chassis No SRH 0041464 which we are currently offering for sale was delivered in early 1981, finished as it is today in Caribbean blue with beige leather upholstery. It was acquired in London in 2004 by one of our most particular customers who had the car stripped and re-painted in its original colour a few months later. It presents beautifully cosmetically and is complete with an extensive history file documenting the careful maintenance. Complete tools and books are present with this fine example.
Condition : Very good condition throughout.
Technical Data : Three speed automatic gearbox, power steering, 8 cylinder 90 degree V-configuration engine, 6.7 litres displacement, 6750cc capacity. Ventilated disc brakes.
