With the introduction of the Silver Shadow in late 1965, Rolls-Royce embraced monocoque chassis design for the first time along with much more modern styling than the Silver Cloud II that it replaced. Powered by the 6,230cc V8 introduced in 1959 in the Silver Cloud II and soon enlarged to 6,750cc, the Silver Shadow was shorter, lower and narrower with four-wheel independent self-leveling hydraulic suspension and four-wheel disc brakes. It was also the first Rolls-Royce to use a “straight through” body design. Some Rolls-Royce owners were initially reticent about the changes but the car itself was faster and had a more comfortable ride, better brakes and superior handling. The Silver Shadow was still built and trimmed to the high standards expected of Rolls-Royce, and it soon won over even the most skeptical.
This beautiful 1972 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow Saloon, chassis SRA14310, is an honest and original example with the desirable chrome bumpers instead of the later plastic ones. Finished in Silver Metallic with a red coachline, it has a black leather interior piped in red, maroon carpets, an upgraded Sanyo AM/FM cassette stereo, walnut dash and door trim, full instrumentation an
