Classic Car Auctions says:

Launched way back in 1965, the original Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow was a thoroughly modern car with all the luxury and sophistication that the new Sixties jet-set demanded.

In typical Rolls-Royce pursuit of perfection, over 2,000 improvements were made during the years it was in production, the most important being the introduction of the 6,750cc engine and GM three-speed box in 1970, radial tyres in 1972 and the launch of the Shadow II in 1977. It sold like no Rolls-Royce before or since with 37,000 examples rolling from the Crewe production line before it was replaced by the altogether less characterful Silver Spirit in 1980.

This charming 1979 Rolls Royce Shadow 2 shows 18 service stamps in the book and is supplied with an MoT certificate valid till June 2016.
