Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow Long Wheelbase

1975, LRX22245, black over sand, with division

According to the book "State motor cars" this car was in 1975 delivered to the head of state of the Central African Republic. The car is provided with a division. I came upon this car at the Annual Rally in 2004.

Close-up of the division:

The rear passengers have a radio of their own and an airconditioning of their own.

To provide the airco with enough energy an extra battery is fitted in the boot. The rear panel of the boot is therefore mounted further to the rear.

The air for the rear passengers enters the rear cabin via these extra air grille below the rear window.

That air for the rear passengers enters here. Because of this extra air-opening the vanity-mirrors are deleted in the cars with a division.
