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 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow II is finished in white with a blue Everflex roof and a special order dark blue Parkertex Savoy velvet interior. The car was supplied by Jack Barclay and first registered on 3rd October, 1978 with a number of extras. The car was originally registered in a company's name then transferred to the company's owner before being purchased by the current owner on 14th July, 2010.
The car has only covered 46,500 miles and recent invoices from Hillier Hill support the good history supplied along with its original sales invoice from Jack Barclay and a clear HPI report. Enormous quality for modest outlay.
