Rolls Royce Silver Shadow Parts Supplied Throughout the UK

The Rolls Royce Silver Shadow is a luxury car that has various forms. Starting with the first silver shadow that was produced from 1965 to 1976 which then progressed into the Rolls Royce Silver Shadow II when the vehicle was changed in 1977.

Rolls Royce are a British automaker that produced the Silver Shadow from 1965 to 1980. During this time, the model went through multiple changes with some derivatives coming from them. One of the key points of history with this model is that it was the first by the marque to use unitary body and chassis construction.

To date, the combined model run has the largest production volume of any Rolls Royce; making it a common vehicle we supply spare parts for. Before the production of the Silver Shadow, Rolls Royce were dealing with public concerns that the company was falling behind in automotive innovation. In response to this, they designed the Silver Shadow which had several modernisations (most notably its unitary construction).

The Rolls Royce Silver Shadow

John Polwhele Blatchley was the person behind the design of the Silver Shadow. It was a major departure from its predecessor, the Silver Cloud. Most roads across Europe and most of North America during this time were quite narrow and could be quite crowded. Due to the size of Silver Clouds size and that more than 50% of Silver Clouds were sold on the domestic market, this would cause problems.

The Rolls Royce Silver Shadow was made to be 3 1⁄2 inches (8.9 cm) narrower and 7 inches (18 cm) shorter than the Silver Cloud while increasing the amount of passenger and luggage space. This was all made possible due to the unitary construction of the car. The car also boasted other new features, including disc brakes to replace the drums and independent rear suspension instead of the live axle design seen in previous Rolls Royce models.

A rather distinctive feature was a high-pressure hydropneumatic suspension system (licensed from Citroën), with dual-circuit braking and hydraulic self-levelling suspension. The Rolls Royce Silver Shadow was well known for the great ride quality it provided its passengers. This was due to the changes made to the levelling system. Both the front and rear of the car were controlled by the levelling system at first, but the front levelling was removed in 1969 as the rear levelling did almost all the work.
