PLEASE CALL BOB AT 954-779-1000 FOR ANY QUESTIONS THAT YOU MAY HACE, WE ARE ROLLS ROYCE AND BENTLEY SPECIALISTS FOR OVER 35 YEARS.Launched at the 1965 Paris Salon, the Silver Shadow heralded a new era for Rolls-Royce, employing unitary construction for the first time, with elegant, modern styling by John Blatchley’s team. In fact, the Silver Shadow saw numerous firsts for the Crewe Company, including fully independent suspension with an advanced self-levelling system and four-wheel ventilated disc brakes. The only major components carried over from the Silver Cloud III were the excellent all-aluminium 6.2-litre V8 and Rolls-Royce’s own four-speed automatic transmission with fluid flywheel, although the latter was replaced by GM’s excellent 400 three-speeder in October 1968. Inside the Silver Shadow was a clever blend of traditional materials and Old World craftsmanship with modern fittings, including power windows and electrically-adjustable front seats. No less than eight individual Connolly hides were used to trim the interior of each car and the standard of finish on the upholstery, rich Wilton carpets and burr walnut veneers was impeccable. Another breakthrough for Rolls-Royce was the fact that the Silver Shadow was the first model in 50 years to turn a profit and production was relatively high, with no less than 16,717 built (along with a smaller number of Bentley T-Series variants) before the revised Shadow II was launched in 1976, with deliveries beginning in February the following year. The updated model incorporated a host of refinements, including a new facia, still in walnut burr veneer but with new gauges, while the Camargue’s advanced split-level air conditioning was another big improvement. Power assisted steering was adopted, with a smaller steering wheel and revised front suspension geometry meant less body roll. A twin exhaust system and SU’s latest HIF7 carburettors boosted the power output whilst reducing fuel consumption and there was an additional cooling fan in front of the radiator. External changes were kept to a minimum: new deformable bumpers with rubber inserts helped avoid low speed damage and a front air dam improved high speed stability. Rolls-Royce built 8425 Shadow IIs, plus a further 2135 long-wheelbase Silver Wraith II variants and 568 the equivalent Bentley T2 PLEASE CALL BOB AT 954-779-1000 FOR ANY QUESTIONS THAT YOU MAY HAVE,WE ARE ROLLS ROYCE AND BENTLEY SPECIALISTS FOR OVER 35 YEARS.
