Back of an American Silver Shadow from 1974.

On the picture below you can see that the grill of the series II and of the American designs of the series I were fitted with a grill that was 15% deeper ("thicker"). Because the bumper had to be able to move under the grill in case of a small accident, the grill was shortened a little with regard to the European models.
