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!"
