Number of cars
Number of produced cars in this series: 499.
Number of cars in this list: 334   (68%).

Beginning and end of series
1. The first Bentley T and Silver Shadow
Most sources (literature) are not clear about what was the first car, a Bentley T or a Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow. I have been to the archives in England to find that out. The first 150 produced cars are mentioned in this list. The first car was a Bentley T. The production of this car started in August 1965 and the production of the first Silver Shadow started in September 1965. The first 11 cars were destined for promotion purposes, such as motor shows.
2. The first left hand drive (LHD)
The first cars all were right hand drive (RHD). The first LHD Silver Shadow was the SRX1114 and the first LHD Bentley T was the SBX1136.
3. The first James-Young 2-door saloon
The first coachbuilt car was constructed by James Young. The date issued was 17th September 1965. The car was built on chassisnumber 1067. The half assembled car with several separate components was delivered to James Young on 8th December 1965. The car was demonstrated to the public at the end of January 1966.
The first Bentley T James Young was the CBH1342.
4. The first MPW 2-door saloon
The first MPW (Mulliner, Park Ward) was the CRH1148, a RHD 2-door saloon. At first Mulliner, Park Ward only built 2-door saloons based on the Silver Shadow and Bentley T. Convertibles only were launched at the end of 1967. The first Bentley T MPW 2-door saloon was the CBX1149, a LHD car.
5. The first Long wheelbase (pre-series)
In 1966/1967 Rolls-Royce manufactured 10 Long wheelbase versions of the Silver Shadow. They were different on many features from the later, definite versions. The first was the LRX1467.

Technical changes
From the beginning till the end numerous technical modifications were introduced. The first was already introduced on 1060, called "Harmonic damper to crossmember". On these pages the small technical changes are not mentioned, only the outstanding and significant are.

Different models
Many owners have converted their Silver Shadow or Bentley T to other types of coaches. The first one that I know is the SRH1478 that has been converted into a pick-up.

Other details of manufacturing
Rolls-Royce dealt with a lot of production problems in the first years of manufacturing of the Silver Shadow. The result of that was that in 1965 there were no cars delivered to customers. Above that for an owner of a new car it was more attractive to register the new car in the beginning of 1966 than at the end of 1965.

Other models than the Silver Shadow
In 1965 and even in 1966 some cars were completed of the Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud III and Bentley S3, mainly coachbuilt models. These cars are not part of the list and the count.
In 1965 and 1966 (until 1968) Rolls-Royce also sold cars of the model Phantom V. These are not mixed up with the chassisnumbers of the Silver Shadow and are not part of the series on these pages.
The Phantom VI was launched in 1968 as the successor of the Phantom V. The chassisnumbers were mixed with those of the Silver Shadow. The first Phantom VI had chassisnumber PRH4108. On number 1500 (PRH1500), provided in 1966, a prototype of the Phantom VI was manufactured. That is the reason why the number of produced Silver Shadows in this series gets stuck on 499.
