The 1969 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow maintained the image of elegance and prestige that was set by the previous model years. The main difference that set the 69 Silver Shadow apart from previous model years is the suspension. Rolls-Royce determined that the rear component of the revolutionary self-leveling hydraulic suspension did most of the work, resulting in the front leveling system being removed from models from 1969 onward. Fortunately, this modification did not negatively affect the smooth and comfortable handling that the Silver Shadow was known for. In addition, the 69 Silver Shadow was the last of the model years to come with a 6.2-liter V8 engine, which was upgraded the following year to meet various government regulations. It also comes with electric windows and seat adjustment features, an automatic transmission, and ultra-safe disc brakes on all four wheels.
