Number of cars
Number of produced cars in this series: 500.
Number of cars in this list: 215    (43%).

Beginning and end of series
1. The first Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow II
The numbers SRF30001 and SRF30002 were the first two cars that could be indicated as Silver Shadows II. However both cars were experimental cars or so called pre-production cars. The Silver Shadow II could be recognised amongst others by the thick black bumper, the thicker and shorter grille, the indication plate on the bootlid, the double exhaust, a new model outside mirrors, a front spoiler (not on American cars), foglights below the front bumper (not on American cars), an automatic split-level airconditioning, a completely new dashboard, an electronic speedometer, a 15 inch steering wheel, rack and pinion steering, a modified front suspension, and many other changes to electronics, engine and so on.
2. The first Rolls-Royce Corniche convertible, series II
The first Corniche convertible (the DRH30003) too was an experimental car and a pre-production car. Many modifications that were introduced on the Silver Shadow II were still in use for some time on the Corniche. A good example of that was the dashboard of the series II that was already mounted on the Corniche in 1976. Unlike the Silver Shadow the Corniche got no generation number (so no Corniche II), but the name Corniche was continued.
3. The first Rolls-Royce Corniche 2-door saloon, series II
The first Corniche 2-door saloon was the CRH30011. There was no separate experimental car made for the 2-door saloon. The Corniche 2-door saloon and the Corniche convertible got the same modelchanges.
4. The first Rolls-Royce Camargue in the 30000-series
The first Camargue with a chassisnumber in the 30000-serie was the JRH30015. While the Silver Shadow and Corniche were renewed thoroughly the Camargue was sold in a new modelyear without important modifications.
5. The first Bentley T2
The first Bentley T2 was the SBX30046, a LHD Bentley for a Swiss customer. The Bentley T2 had the same features as the Silver Shadow II.
6. The first Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith II
The lengthened version of the Silver Shadow II was not called Silver Shadow II Long wheelbase but Silver Wraith II. The first Silver Wraith II was the LRX30083 that was a car without a division. This model got the same renewals as the normal 4-door saloon. Beside that the Silver Wraith II got the hub caps of the Corniche and got an identification plate.

Technical changes
Despite the introduction of the new models there were several small additional technical changes from the beginning.

Different models
In this series no different models occur.

Other details of manufacturing
The production of the 30000-series started in January 1977.

Other models than the Silver Shadow
Alongside the Silver Shadow models Rolls-Royce also sold the Phantom VI. The chassisnumbers of the Phantom VI untill 1978 were part of the 4000-series.





The lengthened Silver Shadow II was now called Silver Wraith II. The model got the same hub caps as the Corniche and got an identification plate. The double exhaust was now standard on all models. On the picture the LRF30236.



The production of the series II started in January 1977. The Silver Shadow II was officially introduced in March 1977.
