The Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow, and its Bentley sister, the T series, were introduced in 1965 as "the most radically new Rolls-Royce cars in 59 years."
Included in the new design were features such as: chassis-less construction, all independent self-leveling suspension, disc brakes, high pressure hydraulics for brakes and leveling, and electric seats.
Bentley T series are rare, the T2 and the Bentley Corniche even more so. During the years of production very few changes were made to the exterior.
SRH14594, built in 1972 has a Rolls-Royce V-8, 6,750cc (6.75-liter) engine. As is customary with RR, no power ratings were ever published. Overall length is 203.5 inches, width is 71.0 inches, and the weight is 4,660 pounds.
