The Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow was built from 1965 to 1980. It 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 three and a half inches narrower and seven 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 construction. Aside from a more modern appearance, the Silver Shadow introduced many new features such as disc brakes instead of drum brakes and independent rear suspension rather than the ageing live axle design of previous cars.
This charming example has covered a mere 45,000 miles from new and is described by the vendor as being in excellent condition with regards to the bodywork, paintwork, chassis, engine and transmission. Finished in gold with a contrasting white roof and with champagne leather upholstery; this example is ready to arrive in style at a wedding or at the races! Offered at a very reasonable price; a Rolls-Royce for the price of a new mini!
