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

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.
