Description

Successor to the long-running Silver Cloud, the Silver Shadow was launched in October 1965 although development prototypes had been testing since the summer of 1957. However, early models were quite rightly criticised for having somewhat woolly handling with appreciable amounts of body roll and despite minor improvements over the years the first major attempt to make the Silver Shadow more of a driver's car came with the launch of the Silver Shadow II in March 1977. This Shadow II is finished in dark blue with grey leather upholstery and is described by the vendor as being "excellent" with regards to the engine, transmission, electrical equipment, and interior trim with "very good" paintwork and bodywork. Offered with a collection of old MOT certificates and owners wallet with handbooks and well stamped service book this potentially inexpensive entry to the exclusive world of Rolls-Royce motoring is offered for sale with an MOT certificate showing no advisories valid until May 2018.
