Silver Shadow, retrospectively called Silver Shadow I, was announced in 1965 September, taking a big leap from the classical Silver Cloud style to a modern and clean three-box sedan with monocoque chassis construction. Drastically changed mechanically as well to have the avant-garde technologies of the time. Only the engine, V8 OHV 6230cc was carried on from Silver Cloud II and III. Citroen patented hydropneumatic hight control independent suspension was adopted instead of the rigid leaf suspension, and the hydropneumatic four wheel disk brake instead of conventional Hispano Suiza style mechanical servo drum brake. On the other hand, the traditional Rolls-Royce exquisite finish on the paint and upholstery was intact as expected for its name. The burr walnut wood trim, Connolly Hide seat, Wilton carpet on this particular car are the unchanged charm of this marquee.
After 1970, the engine was up-scaled to 6,747 cc and the GM Turbo Hydramatic transmission which had been used for the U.S.A export model became the standard spec to have more comfortable ride. Silver Shadow I with the characteristic iron bumper style has been revaluated in these years.
 
Silver Shadow is the car we are proud to revive as a modern classic. Here is a new addition to our inventory.
Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow and Bentley T were announced in 1965 September, which is known to have had the most drastic change in the Rolls-Royce Motors history. The car had many “firsts” in the Rolls-Royce history, such as monocoque construction, Citroen patented hydropneumatic hight control independent suspension, hydropneumatic four wheel disk brake instead of conventional Hispano Suiza style mechanical servo drum brake. Perhaps because of the many drastic changes, the car had received continuous improvements right after its debut. In the 1960’s and 70’s, Bentley marquee was overshadowed by Rolls-Royce. Bentley sales against Rolls-Royce was fallen down to 1:9. The total production of Bentley T saloon was only 1,703 + 9 of Extended wheelbase version, which resulting now to be a sort after car among Bentley collectors.
You can say this 1975 car is one of the later matured Silver Shadow I. Mechanically and cosmetically in excellent condition for your daily use. Came with the original spare key is rather rare, which explains how this care was cared for. Ready for test-drive.
