Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow Series 1 1968, 68000 miles, Metallic Grey £16,995.00 Make Rolls-Royce Model Silver Shadow Year 1968 Transmission Automatic Fuel Petrol Engine Size 6,200 ccm Mileage 68,000 Miles Emission class -- The Silver Shadow was produced from 1965 to 1976, and the Silver Shadow II from 1977 to 1980. It was the first Rolls-Royce to use a monocoque chassis, a response to concerns that the company was falling behind in automotive innovation. To date, the Silver Shadow has the largest production volume of any Rolls-Royce and had a book price of Â£6,557 in the first year of production.
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 89mm narrower and 18mm shorter than the car it replaced, but nevertheless managed to offer increased passenger and luggage space thanks to more efficient packaging made possible by monocoque construction.
Aside from a more modern appearance and construction, the Silver Shadow introduced many new features such as disc brakes and independent rear suspension,
The pre 1970 Shadow 1 featured a 172 bhp 6.2 Litre V8 coupled to the same 4-speed automatic gearbox as the Silver Cloud sourced from General Motors. The car"s most innovative feature was a high-pressure hydraulic system licensed from CitroÃ«n, with dual-circuit braking and hydraulic self-levelling suspension. At first, both the front and rear of the car were controlled by the levelling system; the front levelling was deleted in 1969 as it had been determined that the rear levelling did almost all the work. Rolls-Royce achieved a high degree of ride quality with this arrangement.
