Very Clean 1971 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow. Beautiful classic that still exudes luxury. The car starts and runs great. The car has the owners manual and many service records. It also includes a car cover. Original build sheets included in trunk. The new Shadow was lighter, faster, and better handling than any Rolls-Royce produced before it. The engine is 6,750 cc V8 with a GM’s Turbo Hydramatic 350, 3-speed automatic transmission . Power windows and four-wheel disc brakes were standard, and the rear suspension was self-leveling, based on the Citroen DS-19 hydraulic/hydrogen sphere system. As one might expect, the finish on the new cars was exemplary, with Connolly leather interior, lambs-wool carpet, and walnut dash and door trims, with full instrumentation. Mileage was in the “if you have to ask” category, at about 10-12 mpg. The car's most innovative feature was a high-pressure hydraulic system licensed from Citroën, with dual-circuit braking and hydraulic self-leveling suspension. At first, both the front and rear of the car were controlled by the leveling system; the front leveling was deleted in 1969 as it had been determined that the rear leveling did almost all the work. Rolls-Royce achieved a high degree of ride quality with this arrangement.
