The Silver Shadow Coupes of the 60s were the last classic Rolls-Royce motorcars. They were the final iterations imbued with elegance and elan whilst eschewing excessive ostentation. They were also the last of the line to carry the name of a coachbuilder, in this instance such as Mulliner Park Ward.
