1969 Shadow l - Barons, Tuesday 4th June 2019 For Sale by Auction
The Shadow 1 design was a major departure from its predecessor, the Silver Cloud. The original Shadow was 3 1?2 inches narrower and 7 inches shorter than the car it replaced, but nevertheless managed to offer increased passenger and luggage space. With a more modern appearance and construction, the Silver Shadow introduced many new features, such as disc brakes, and independent rear suspension. The Shadow featured a 172 hp 6.2 L V8, and an automatic gearbox.
The car's most innovative feature was a high-pressure hydraulic system licensed from Citroen with dual-circuit braking and hydraulic self levelling suspension. Rolls-Royce achieved a high degree of ride quality with this arrangement.
A fairly early example of a Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow with the very desirable "Chippendale dash". The car is said to be in very good condition, and has had a full brake service including a new handbrake cable. The car has also just had a Service, and comes with some Service/Repair history, all the old Service Books, Manuals, a quite a few old MoTs. The original and the best Silver Shadow.
