Happy 50th!




Indeed.....

The Silver Shadow/ T series car is now fifty years old.



Introduced to the public in Autumn 1965 (1966 model) as the most radical new Rolls-Royce ever. 
A monocoque body... 
Oh my....No more chassis.
The automotive journalist John Bolster was quoted as saying " A new car for modern conditions".
He went on to say how the car 'felt astonishingly small being a car of reasonable size'.
The car was an instant hit.
Very different from its predecessor, the Silver Cloud III

Geniuses.





The rounded grille Bentley T version:



I have admired these cars for a long time and they are fantastic cars to own. Not too expensive compared to the silly prices of classic cars these day. Buy them, stay on top of their issues (old car issues) and love them forever. Good value for money. 
Get one before their prices go silly too....
