Just Add Another Quarter of a Litre

Here's an interesting customised 1975 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow:



Debumpered....
Chopped  roof.....



Lack of chrome mouldings, different door mirrors and a set of alloys.



It does have very clean lines but I do wonder what a nice set of modern Phantom alloys would look like on it.

The car was built by Dan Fink Metalworks and then converted to RHD for a customer in Japan.



I'm not really a fan of such modifications but this one does look clean and pure.
But the piece de la résistance....

This:



A seven litre LS7 Corvette engine.
A little bit bigger than the original Rolls-Royce 6.75 litre.



Then add this:



The suspension from a C4 Corvette.



Wow!

This must have cost a lot more than a nut and bolt Silver Shadow restoration.
But is it worth it...?
For the money probably spent on this I'd settle for a few nice 'ordinary' unmodified cars instead, please.



"All please Rodd, thanks!"

Nice work, neat and clean lines, good paint job, engine, suspension, exhaust system look good. Maybe different selection of front indicator, door mirrors, steering wheel, air inlets on the dashboard and rims could improve the looks, from my point of view.

I think it looks good but the door mirrors don't work with it and the original chrome air con vents are far lovelier than the ugly plastic ones that have been fitted.
