Colours of the upholstery



The leather upholstery

The interior of a Silver Shadow was upholstered with Conolly leather as a standard. Just as for the paint the factory offered a standard range of leather colours. However, a customer could specify any colour of upholstery he wished. A non-standard colour was offered at extra cost and would delay the production with approximately four weeks. In 1966 the extra cost was $ 110 (for the exterior colour $ 90), in 1975 64.94.
