Chassis Card Details, i.e. the documents on this car from the period when it
was made at the factory, include a note from 17th April 1979: "Gold Fineline
on dark olive paint. Note that the gold contains real gold and is not simply
a gold coloured paint." – That a significant example for the tremendous care
invested in providing the finest standard to meet the client's wishes for
extras on this Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow II.
duo-tone paintwork in Dark Olive over Silver Sand (both paints were
specified with their exact number from ICI (Imperial Chemical Industries) in
the Chassis Card Details, too) and an Everflex-covered hood in matching colour
was non-standard on this Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow II. The vast majority of
cars from this model-series were delivered with uni colour. The Everflex hood
usually was a feature of the long-wheelbase variant Rolls-Royce Silver
Wraith II; it was available only to order and at surplus charge for the
Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow II.
