ROLLS-ROYCE SILVER SHADOW II

4-door 5-seater saloon.

Re-worked and facelifted version of Silver Shadow, for last three years of this model's life. Lightly modified style including front air-dam, and new facia, but new rack and pinion steering and adoption of split level air-conditioning were more significant. For this model, the longer-wheelbase car got its own title (Silver Wraith II - see below). Nice touch towards the end included headlamp wash/wipe. For 1980, and California only, the engine got Bosch fuel injection. Replaced by Silver Spirit for 1981.
