Number of cars
Number of produced cars in this series: 537.
Number of cars in this list:
- in April 2007:  196   (36%)
- in September 2009:  235   (44%).

Beginning and end of series
1. The last MPW in the 4000-series
In this period (1967/1968) the American laws of environment and safety became more and more rigid. In 1968 Rolls-Royce took measures to cope with the FSS, the Federal Safety Standards. This resulted in important changes of the dashboard in order to avoid injuries of passengers by the switches in an accident. When the American cars got a chassisnumber from 6001 on, the RHD cars got a number from 5001 on. The CRH4184 in the list is the last MPW before the 5000- and 6000-series.
2. The last LHD in the 4000-series
The left hand drive (LHD) cars, the most of which were bound for the American market, had to meet the needs of the FSS. The last LHD car before the 5000- and 6000-series was the SRX4318.
3. The last car in the 4000-series
While the LHD cars from summer 1968 got a number in the 6000-series, the RHD cars got still numbers in the 4000-series; in the fall of 1968 the 5000-series was introduced for the RHD cars. The last 4000-series was the SRH4548. Part of the numbers between 4549 and 5000 were used for the Phantom VI, part of the numbers were not used.

Technical changes
1. In the first years the LHD cars were provided with an automatic gearbox with three gears and the RHD cars with the automatic gearbox that was already applied in the Silver Cloud III. In July 1968 the GM-400 three gears automatic gearbox was introduced in the RHD coachbuilt cars (the convertible and 2-door saloon). The RHD saloon had to wait untill November 1968. The first Silver Shadow with this gearbox was the SRH4483, the first Bentley T was the SBH4478.
2. In this series several technical changes are introduced, like simpler sealings in the rear rams, (number 4129), an anti-roll bar at the rear (number 4258, not on American cars), a thicker battery cable (number 4386) and a revised handbrake (number 4469).

Different models
In this list of chassisnumbers two special coaches occur: an Estate (4032) and a Hearse (4019). Both Silver Shadows are afterwards converted by coachbuilders.

Other details of manufacturing
1. The production of chassisnumber 4000 started in April 1968.
2. Pininfarina. Chassisnumber CBH4033 was adjusted to a 2-door saloon that on special order was designed by Pininfarina. This very special "one-off" can be seen in the gallery of pictures of this site.

Other models than the Silver Shadow
The Phantom VI was presented 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. The next numbers were 4180, 4181, 4182, 4295, 4296, 4297, 4503 and 4504. That is the reason why in this series there are no 548 but 537 cars.





This RHD Silver Shadow SRH4218 (1969) has a two-tone colourscheme. The car seems to be in good condition, but appearances are deceptive.
