Beginning and end of series
In this series of numbers no begin or end of a model type occur.

Technical changes
In this series many technical changes are introduced. Some important changes are:
- Headrests could be fitted on the back seats as an option from number 16000 on.
- American cars got a foot operated parking brake from number 16079 on.
- Package of modifications on the steering column from number 16144, Corniche from 16174.
- The Lucas FT8 foglights became standard, except for the US and Canada. The air intakes in the front (ankle freezers) were deleted. The last part of the exhaust didn't point downwards anymore but to the rear. A buzzer was introduced for a forgotten key and for a hot engine. The engine starter relay was changed. All these modifications were introduced on number SRH16214 in July 1973 (Bentley on SBH16449, Long wheelbase on LRH16736, Corniche on CRH16578).
- The cable of the speedometer was improved on number 16458.

Different models
1. The straight rubber bumpers.
In 1973 the straight rubber bumpers were introduced for cars for the American and Canadian market. This modification was valid from SRB16240 for the Silver Shadow 4-door saloon, on LRB16742 for the Long wheelbase and from DRB15936 for the Corniche. The bumpers were shock-absorbing. To make this possible the grille was shortened and also made deeper. The licence-plate lighting moved to the boot lid. The starting of the engine was only possible when the safety belts of the front passengers were closed. The rear seats got headrests. The mirrors became electrical operated. The safety belts were provided with a buzzer.
2. The last experimental Camargue.
Before the first regular Camargue (with chassisnumber JRH16648) was produced, 4 experimental Camargues were produced. The last two ones were provided with a chassisnumber. Camargue JRH16298 was the fourth experimental Camargue, so the second experimental Camargue with a chassisnumber and also the last experimental Camargue of the four that were made before the regular production started.
3. Coachbuilt. In this series of chassisnumbers there is another different model: a Hearse (the SRH16296). This Silver Shadow was modified later by a coachbuilder.

Other details of manufacturing
The production of chassisnumber 16000 started in June 1973.

Other models than the Silver Shadow
Alongside the Silver Shadow models Rolls-Royce also sold the Phantom VI. The chassisnumbers of the Phantom VI untill 1978 were part of the 4000-series.









The first owner of this 1973 Corniche 2-door saloon CRH16444 was Elton John.
Most of the interior was upholstered with Parkertex instead of leather.
