Description

"The Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow is a luxury car that was manufactured from 1965 to 1980. It was the first Rolls-Royce to use unitary body and chassis construction, in response to concerns that the company was falling behind in automotive innovation. The design was a major departure from its predecessor, the Silver Cloud; although several styling cues from the Silver Cloud were modified and preserved, as the automobile had sold well. The original Shadow was 3½ inches narrower and seven inches shorter than the Silver Cloud however the car managed to offer increased passenger and luggage space thanks to more efficient packaging made possible by unitary construction. Aside from a more modern appearance and construction, the Silver Shadow introduced many new features such as disc rather than drum brakes, and independent rear suspension. Initially, the long-wheelbase model did not have a separate name, but in 1976, with the introduction of the Silver Shadow II, the longer wheel base model was dubbed the Silver Wraith II. The Wraith II is identified by all alterations found on the Silver Shadow II and additionally an Everflex-covered roof, a smaller rear opera-style window and different wheel covers. Some Silver Wraith IIs were also fitted with electric divisions.
Originally registered on 1st November 1977, this delightful Silver Wraith is finished in Chestnut with contrasting tan leather interior and has a tan Everflex roof. Having been well looked after throughout its life, this Rolls-Royce we are advised, drives with no known faults. The 6.75 litre engine is a well tried and trusted unit offering performance and smoothness in equal quantities. The cockpit area of a Rolls-Royce is an area of beauty, sumptuous soft leather seats along with ample walnut and great ergonomics. Supplied with a V5C registration document together with a history folder, a Silver Wraith II is the same as the Silver Shadow with the benefit of the extra leg room to the rear compartment."
