MATCHBOX ROLLS ROYCE SILVER SHADOW COUPE



Although the Rolls Royce Silver Shadows joined the 1-75 range in 1967, one of the first Superfast models to be produced in 1969 was the Silver Shadow Coupe (MB69). It lasted for four years but during that tome it was colored metallic blue and several shades of gold. The interior was either in Brown or ivory. The tonneau cover came in tan or black and the base came in many colors. In order to accommodate the wider Superfast slicks its wheel arches were soon adapted. Hence this model also comes with thin or wide wheels and narrow or wide wheel arches. The full listing shows the range of variations.
