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 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 sort that had come to be expected in a modern car. Under the bonnet, the V8 engine that had been introduced in the Silver Cloud series was employed. In February 1977, the Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow II was introduced. The most notable changes mechanically were to the rack and pinion steering and modifications to the front suspension which improved handling markedly.

This original Silver Shadow, series II presents well in Mason Black with a matching tan hide interior and brown carpets. The owner describes it as having very few blemishes, including the chromework and it comes complete with an extensive history file, the original stereo, the jack and its manuals, books and wallet. The paperwork includes an MoT test certificate valid until December this year, extensive receipts from Wraith Motors, Rolls-Royce specialists and a UK V5C registration certificate. Enormous quality for modest outlay.

Interested parties should satisfy themselves as to the description and condition of each lot prior to the sale. Buyers are advised to inspect the car in person or use a professional to carry out this service.
