Number of cars
Number of produced cars in this series: 500.
Number of cars in this list: 199    (40%).

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

Technical changes
In this series only less important technical changes occur.

Different models
In this series no different models occur.

Other details of manufacturing
1. The production of the 41000-series started in June 1980.
2. Petrol injection in California
At he end of the seventies the environmental laws in California had become so severe, that Rolls-Royce felt obliged to introduce petrol injection in the Silver Shadow models for this American state. This technical change was recognizable in the chassisnumber by the suffix "C" (addition to the end of the number). At first a prototype was produced on number SRL39734C. After that the technics were launched on number SRL40194C. The cars with this Bosch Jetronic fuel injection system got a lower top speed and therefore a speedo meter that went not further than 90 miles an hour (140 km/h). At the outside the cars could be recognised by the split exhaust. Further these cars got a lower compression (7.3) and the gearbox was modified to change up quicker. The complete handling of the car became more sluggish by that.
3. No Corniche and Camargue in this list
From the beginning of 1979 the Corniche and Camargue cars got a new subframe and a hydraulic system based on mineral hydraulic fluid. The chassisnumbers of these cars were 50001 and higher. So in this list no Corniches and Camargues occur.
4. Longer chassisnumber for English cars
At the end of the seventies the cars destined for the English homemarket got a chassisnumber of 10 digits. These extra two digits in the chassisnumber were to comply with new legislation at 1979 requiring 10 digits. This was subsequently revised again to 17-digits (and called VIN) at Modelyear 1980 but these 17-digit numbers were only applied to the Silver Spirit models from Modelyear 1980 and to the Corniches and Camargues from Modelyear 1981. The 00 was simply making up the characters to equal ten and had no further meaning. The first number in my register with the two extra digits is the SBH0039138. RHD cars for other markets maintained the 8-digit numbers. There are many cars that have the two extra digits in their chassisnumbers but that are present in my register without these two digits. Many owners don't mention the two 00 as part of their number.

Other models than the Silver Shadow
Alongside the Silver Shadow models Rolls-Royce also sold the Phantom VI. From 1978 until 1980 the Phantom VI got another type of chassisnumber than the Silver Shadow models.
