![CDATA[
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 and the largest production volume of any Rolls-Royce. The new models, designed by J.P Blatchley, 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.

This wonderful example is presented in a very attractive colour combination of Regal red over a tan leather interior and is a desirable Chippendale dashboard model. The Rolls-Royce also benefits from the optional extra of rear picnic tables. The Silver Shadow benefits from a restoration undertaken by a European restoration company in 2004 to the tune of circa 18,000 Euros. An engine rebuild was undertaken at a tune of 9,700 euros in 2006. In more recent time the car has benefited from a recent comprehensive service and tune up and is reported to be in good driving order. The paintwork shows some minor blemishes but is generally very good still retaining a deep shine. The interior is in lovely condition, the seats and dash are presented very nicely and show a light patina as you would expect for a car of this age. The comprehensive history file that accompanies the car details maintenance work going back throughout its life, the majority of which completed by marque specialists. Invoices from the restoration as well as other maintenance work totalling over ú50,000. Also present are many old MoT test certificates, the current UK V5C registration document and a toolkit with all tools present. An example is not to be missed.]]
