Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow II (1979 Silver)

  • Matchbox's Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow II, like its prototype, bears great similarity to the Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow; the differences between the two real vehicles were mostly technological rather than cosmetic. The most obvious difference between the Matchbox versions may be the opening front doors of this model, rather than the opening trunk on the original. The chromed grille, headlights, and front bumper on both models were a single but separate piece, not part of the body, base, or interior, giving this model a total of fifteen distinct parts (body; 2 doors; door spring; window glazing; interior; grille, headlights, and bumper; base; steel leaf-spring suspension; two axles; and four wheels) rather than the eleven in a typical model.
  • The model was made in England, like the prototype, and like most Matchbox vehicles of the era is right-hand-drive.
