Subtle Differences

We could go into details as to when, what market and why, but here are simply some photographic observations of various evolutions within the SY (Silver Shadow/T) range's exterior. You need to be in a room full of them to appreciate it all....
I have been there.
Please add your own observations to the 'comments' box.
The outside:
Grilles differ.
Then the American deep rubber bumper cars:
But there was a very late Shadow II with Spirit style rounded edges:
And a short rubber bumper:
As opposed to the long  American one:
Then the trunk handle:
'Grab it from the top or bottom...'
And the late cars.
'Lower side only.'
The wheel covers of course:
Original unvented with lock:
Without lock:
Then the smarter looking vented ones:
And the Wraith II, Corniche and Camargue covers and rings:
Narrow  wheel arches or flared:
The air dams that cover those 'ugly bits':
Spot the difference.
These cars are not all alike.
Read the Bible by Malcolm Bobbitt:
This book is worth whatever you can get it for.
