Hi again.
2 photos attached. 1 is of the front dash/windscreen timber trim and the other the rear window timber trim.

The front trim in this photo is veneered. Mine isnt and i havent found anyone other cars that are. Ive heard of them leather wrapped or just painted black.
What year range etc did they come as veneer?
The rear trim - were they always black or were they ever veneered as well.

front

rear

Hi Glen.
The back window is correct.

The front should be a combined veneer with a blacked out section.

Iím currently traveling with work.

I will see if my daughter can get a good pic of mine for you.

Sorry about the flash glare Glen, but this pic shows it very well.

Patrick L,

Never saw a RR floor shifter.

Were they electronic or mechanical?

Patrick L is pulling your legs gents.
The pic Glen was showing as reference is the very first Shadow imported into Australia, which is now Chev powered, but beautiful inside.

Yes
You are right Patrick L.

My back window triim is timber as well, but a very dark timber like yours.
None I have seen match the front timber colours just as ours donít.

I have never seen a rear window trim in veneer. They are usually solid stock so they can be steam bent and flexed into position within the rear window. The front is definitely veneered to compliment the front wood of the cabin.

Well well here is another one on a Shadow 2, all original as it left the factory.



The dash top surround is not veneered on the SS2.

Patrick L,

I googled RR shadow floor shifter and found the car Patrick R mentioned.

So I guess the answer is it's mechanical.

Yes I agree, if you scroll down on the link provided it covers the many alterations made to this historic vehicle.
