All were hand built and only 2145 were produced 624 making it to the US market. The car painted in a deep Egglpant color was believed to be 1 of only 2 built. It is complemented by a beige top and a monotone beige leather interior. As you can see in the pictures the car is specatcularly preserved the wood is rich and free of cracks or fading. The leather is lovely along with the wool headliner and carpets. The car runs soft and smooth the transmission shifts perfectly and the ac blows cold.

Constant development had resulted in a variety of improvements having been incorporated into the models from the Silver Shadow range. Having added a few important new features was the reason why Rolls-Royce choose new designations for models delivered from February 1977 onward. As the mainstream model the Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow II substituted the previous model and the Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith II was added. The latter's long wheelbase offered four inches more space for rear seat passengers and in fact this model was the successor of the R-R Silver Shadow long wheelbase. The new rack and pinion steering in combination with a modified front suspension reacted more quickly than the recirculating ball steering of the earlier models. All in all however these were interim models helping to bridge the gap until a new model generation was developed for production.
