Launched in 1965, the Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow was a bold departure for the Crewe company. Their first monocoque design, it also benefited from olio-pneumatic rear suspension, power disc brakes and GM's silken 400 series automatic gearbox (though, the latter was not adopted until 1968). Such 'new technology' did not encroach on the luxurious interior with its sumptuous leather hides, rich wood veneers and deep lambswool carpets. Performance from the smooth 6230cc V8 engine (upgraded to 6750cc in 1970) was assured, the car wafting forward on a seemingly unstoppable wave of torque. Still immensely cosseting to drive, Shadows offer a genuinely different ownership experience to their mass made peers.

Finished in Silver Mink with Beige leather upholstery ‘337RUR’ is offered from a private collection and has covered just 54,800 miles from new. Having been in current ownership since 1992 ‘337RUR’ is offered with bookpack, handbooks and service book/service cards, collection of old MOT’s back to 1986 at 36,041 miles and current V5c. Supplied new by Mann Egerton & Co Ltd of Derby the Rolls is currently classed by the vendor as all 'Good' with regards to its interior, paintwork, electrical equipment, engine, gearbox and bodywork. A nice example.
