The Silver Shadow was introduced in 1965 and built until the 1980 model year – over the journey the model experienced over 2,000 refinements.

Each car took at least four months to build - its hand-shaped monocoque bodyshell, doors, boot, and bonnet were all made from lightweight aluminium.

Powered by 6.75 litre 16-valve V8, the engine block was made from high silicon content aluminium alloy and had aluminium alloy cylinder heads. Each of the eight pistons were weighed and matched by pairs and the Rolls-Royce engineers listened with a stethoscope for running imperfections.

Each car had electronic ignition, a dual exhaust with stainless-steel silencers and an Air injection system with exhaust gas recirculation. Two SU HD8 carburetors with automatic mixture enrichment and automatic choke delivered fuel to the engine. The fuel tank was specifically positioned to prevent rupture or fuel loss in an accident.

Inside the cabin was adorned with walnut - the veneers were lacquered and hand-polished to a glass-like shine and then tempered in slow ovens for longevity.

All seats were clad in natural grain Connolly Brothers leather that came from animals pastured in fields with electrified fences as opposed to barbed wire to guarantee the hide would be completely free from scratches and blemishes. Luxurious Wilton hand-tufted wool pile carpets were installed under foot and in the boot.

Other features included independent rear suspension with automatic levelling, anti-dive geometry, power windows, power steering, power four-wheel disc brakes, power seats and other typical Rolls-Royce refinements.


Originally delivered to Grimsby in Lincolnshire, England on 15th October 1975, this beautiful Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow sedan was imported into Australia (NSW) between 1976 and 1977. The service records to hand indicate that it lived in Victoria between 1980 and 1987.

Since that time, it has been in South Australia with the same family for over 26 years.

Finished in sparkling Regency Bronze, this car’s paint is in excellent condition. Inside the Conolly Brothers leather displays an appropriate amount of patina and the wood is in excellent condition as are the door cards, headlining and original hand-tuft carpets.

The car starts easily and dives extremely well with good power and handling. The power steering is light and the brakes are reliable.

A fantastic, luxurious, long-distance cruiser in a prestigious colour.
