In 1977, Rolls Royce introduced the Silver Shadow II in recognition of several major changes, most notably rack and pinion steering, and modifications to the front suspension, which improved handling dramatically. Externally, the bumpers were changed from chrome to alloy and rubber starting with the late 1976 Silver Shadows. These new energy absorbing bumpers had been used in the United States since 1974, as a response to tightening safety standards there. Nonetheless, the bumpers on cars sold outside of North America were still solidly mounted and protruded 2" less. Also, now made standard across the board, was the deletion of the small grilles mounted beneath the headlamps. A front skirt was fitted to the Silver Shadow II and its sister cars.

This Silver Shadow II is described by the vendor as being in overall excellent condition and is only being sold due to loss of storage. The car was purchased at a Barons auction back in 2013. It comes with masses of history, including 15 Service Stamps and recent bills for brake pump, UJ mounts, and the very importantl rear cross member and mounts.

Included is the walnut champagne caddy in the rear. Also fitted discreetly is an Alpine Sat Nav system and multimedia unit. There is also a Laserline alarm system fitted. The car will also benefit from a fresh MOT prior to auction.

Please note, this vehicle was a Cat C insurance loss in late 2007. VOSA checked the vehicle in 2008.
