Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith II : FSD-469
Chassis No: LRH37119
"The long wheelbase Silver Wraith was a much rarer sight than the Silver Shadow, but still suffered from the same problems when neglected. Talking of neglect, this is a prime example of such treatment and doesn’t it show. Lying round the back of a workshop for a number of years, various components had been pilfered, including the steering wheel, but as it had no steering rack either, that wasn’t really a problem."
Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow : FSD-466
Chassis No: SRH2791
"This is an early Silver Shadow first registered in 1967. We believe this car has served as a ‘donor’ car to other similar vehicles in the past, as it arrived missing several vital components. These early models are becoming quite sought after as they represent the purest form of the Silver Shadow, first released in the mid 60’s. This one, however, is way beyond salvation so will donate the remainder of its useable parts to more deserving causes."
Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow II : FSD-465
Chassis No: SRH33646
"Another abandoned restoration project, this Silver Shadow II was first registered in 1978. Passing through numerous owners, repairs began three or four years ago but, as is often the case, were not completed. Now viewed as beyond saving, it will yield many valuable parts to add to our recycled stock."
Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow : FSD-464
Chassis No: SRH8474
"Restoration projects often begin with boundless enthusiasm as parts are amassed and plans made. However, the size of the task can soon overwhelm the most dedicated enthusiast. This example, dating from 1970, was once known as the Silver ‘Shedo’ due to its rather tired appearance, and thus presented a strong challenge to its relatively young owner. The arrival of an addition to his family is now occupying much of his time, so he has reluctantly accepted defeat. This car has now been dismantled by our recycling team."
Bentley Continental GT : FSD-460
Chassis No: SCBCE63W94C020577
"This is a relatively early example of the Continental GT, first registered in March 2004. Between then and now, it has changed hands an amazing 14 times which would suggest that it has not been one of the better examples. Inevitably, with that many keepers, regular maintenance may have been overlooked, but it does possess some service history, together with a rather long list of electrical problems. Given the overall condition of the car, and the amount of time that would be required to rectify the faults, the most sensible course of action is recycling, which is taking place now."
Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow II : FSD-459
Chassis No: SRH41164
"Another part-restored Silver Shadow II, this one being one of the later cars first registered in 1980. As is often the case, work begins with enthusiasm but the enormity of the task can take away the enjoyment quite quickly. Although running and driving, the car is suffering from substantial corrosion, together with a failed braking system. Several trim components have also been relocated to the boot, and for some strange reason the bonnet appears not to match the rest of the car."
Bentley S1 : FSD-458
Chassis No: B14CK
"Partly dismantled before arriving, this 1956 Bentley S1 was initially a restoration project but proved too great a task to continue. Consideration was given to a conversion of some kind but eventually, the sensible decision to donate the salvageable parts to other more deserving causes was made."
Bentley S1 : FSD-457
Chassis No: B170DB
"Dating from 1956, this Bentley S1 was originally destined to become the basis of a Bentley ‘special’ but a change of circumstances halted the project. Work had gone too far to return the car to its original state so it will be recycled to provide many useful components for similar models, including the desirable power assisted steering option."
Bentley Turbo R : FSD-456
Chassis No: SCBZS0TA9JCH23230
"With a recorded mileage of just under 200,000, this 1988 registered Turbo R has obviously been well used over the last 30 years. Unfortunately, the engine is now showing signs of age and is in need of a rebuild. Although the car appears to be quite tidy superficially, the mileage shows through in other areas, the paintwork requires serious s attention, and it is not considered to be a viable restoration project. This car has now been recycled."
Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow : FSD-452
Chassis No: SRH25158
"We’ve known this car for a number of years as it lived locally and was driven daily to the owner’s restaurant. Although covering mostly short journeys it could also be seen towing a caravan occasionally. A mechanical failure leading to brake problems, resulted in a metal gate and fence being used to bring the car to a halt, hence the bodywork modifications shown in the photographs. Already somewhat corroded, and in need of more than a little TLC, the car was deemed beyond economical repair and subsequently written off. The level of damage sustained means that it will be recycled."
Bentley S3 : FSD-447
Chassis No: B102GJ
"It’s never an easy decision to recycle the now, quite collectable, Bentley ‘S’ series and Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud models. However, this particular example was originally destined for conversion to a drophead model but proved totally unsuitable due to terminal corrosion of the chassis and related structural components. The running gear and most mechanical parts are still in good order and will be recycled in due course."
Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow : FSD-446
Chassis No: SRH8753
"This Silver Shadow first took to the road in 1970. Originally earmarked for restoration by the previous owner, it was, unfortunately found to require too much time and money to make the project worthwhile. The full length ‘Webasto’ fabric sunroof is very much a period accessory, being a popular after-market addition to many cars from the same era, but it has not fared well and is no longer water tight. The car has now been recycled and many parts have found new homes."
Bentley Continental GT : FSD-444
Chassis No: C024451
"First registered in September 2004, this Continental GT has seen regular use but is now suffering from a number of electrical ‘glitches’. Although in very good condition bodily and mechanically, and with just over 82,000 miles recorded, the demand for good used components from these early GT’s continues to be strong, so examples like this enable us to satisfy many customer’s requirements. Given the amount of time and expense required to solve the problems, it now makes more financial sense to recycle some cars of this age. Please contact us with your requirements."
Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow II : FSD-441
Chassis No: SRH38738
"There was a time when old Silver Shadows appeared on Banger Racing tracks, all over the country. That was to be the fate of this particular example, but we had the chance to save it from ending that way, and dismantled it properly, instead. The usual issues were the cause of it arriving at the Banger Track, but now its components have been saved to live another day."
Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit II : FSD-437
Chassis No: LCH33301
"This Silver Spirit II first took the road in 1990 and covered around 140,000 miles over the next 28 years, Well used and enjoyed, a number of mechanical issues arose and the owner decided to let the car go. Some components from these cars are becoming more difficult to source so the opportunity to recycle one from this era is always welcome."
Bentley Eight : FSD-436
Chassis No: ECH10086
"It makes a change to see a well-cared for car arrive and that is exactly the case with this 1984 registered Bentley Eight. Having covered just over 53,000 miles from new, the car was in relatively regular use and kept in excellent condition both bodily and mechanically. Unfortunately, as can be seen, an accident resulted in severe front-end damage and the car was ultimately written off. The benefit when recycling cars such as this, is the quality of used parts that come from it."
Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit : FSD-430
Chassis No: BCH02692
"An early Silver Spirit from 1981. Arrived with a fairly low recorded mileage, but in quite poor condition. The usual corrosion together with mechanical issues made the sum of its parts, greater than the whole, as is often the case. Now safely recycled."
Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow II : FSD-429
Chassis No: SRH34224
"This 1977 Silver Shadow II was owned locally and used regularly for many years. The usual corrosion issues set in, followed by mounting mechanical problems. Another example that appears quite presentable, but is actually hiding a number of issues. Well beyond economical repair, the sensible option was to recycle and that is what has happened to it."
Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow II : FSD-428
Chassis No: SRH36995
"Prepared for repair after a front end incident, this 1979 Shadow II was then left to stand for a while, pending completion. Time passed, no progress was made and the owners decided to concentrate their efforts elsewhere. On acquisition by ourselves, the car was assessed and its future debated but the recycling team won the day and dismantling took place. Another useful source of Shadow components."
Bentley Arnage Red Label : FSD-427
Chassis No: CH06259
"Dating from the year 2000, this is one of the first Arnage Red Label models, fitted with the 6.75 litre Bentley engine, rather than the 4.4 litre BMW offering which appeared in the Green Label variants. The damage caused to this car by a small under-bonnet fire proved too expensive to repair so the car was written off. Now recycled with most of the components already moved on to satisfy our ever growing customer base."
Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow : FSD-424
Chassis No: SRH25012
"Starting life in Leicestershire in 1975, this Silver Shadow came to us from Scotland, having languished in the open air for a number of years. The weather up there has not been kind and although attempts were made to rescue it, the task proved too great and it is now been recycled for parts."
Bentley Continental GT : FSD-423
Chassis No: C042907
"Initially imported from America as a potential repair project, the owner soon realised the vast amount of work that would be required to rebuild this car. Unfortunately, it was decided to abandon the project before too much was done and we were happy to relieve him of it for recycling. Being left-hand drive was particularly appealing to us as components from this specification are always in demand. Now fully recycled and selling well."
Bentley Eight : FSD-422
Chassis No: SCBZS8002HCH20853
"Running and driving on arrival, this early fuel injected ‘8’ dates from 1987. Relatively tidy, but with a high mileage, this car was never going to be an economical project and would not warrant the investment required to return it to a presentable condition."
Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow II : FSD-421
Chassis No: SRH33590
"First registered in 1978, this Silver Shadow II was with the previous owner for some 15 years. Driven regularly, it was correctly serviced and maintained throughout. Sustaining accident damage to the nearside rear wing, together with increasing corrosion issues eventually decided the owner to parts with the car. Another possible restoration project, but mechanical issues were present and recycling became the sensible option."
Bentley Turbo R : FSD-419
Chassis No: TCH57367
"This 1995 Turbo R was in regular use, before the unfortunate incident which modified the rear end. The original specification included desirable picnic tables to the rear compartment. The impact from the accident created damage to the entire structure so the car could not be returned to the road. However, its overall well kept condition has yielded some fine quality components."
Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow : FSD-418
Chassis No: SRH22615
"Left in a garage, untouched for around 12 years, did this late Shadow no favours whatsoever. Initially, it was considered as a possible restoration project but as is often the case, a thorough investigation revealed many corrosion issues which, together with the inevitable mechanical issues, created by lack of use, meant that recycling was the only sensible option. Now processed and providing parts for both sale and reconditioning."
Bentley T1 : FSD-417
Chassis No: SBH19183
"Although a much rarer sight than the Silver Shadow, the Bentley T series models still suffer exactly the same problems when left unattended for too long. This example is very corroded and has not run for several years, resulting in all the usual mechanical problems."
Bentley T1 : FSD-415
Chassis No: SBH2224
"Disappointing that this T1 should end up in this state. Dating from the late sixties, this is a particularly early example so would have been worth saving, had it not been allowed to deteriorate so much. Another car that was partly dismantled, prior to arrival, so did not involve too much effort to finish it off. Not an awful lot of components remained to be salvaged on this one."
Bentley Continental S : FSD-414
Chassis No: SCBZB05C9SCX52384
"With a production run of just 34, the Continental S model, is an extremely rare motor car and one which we would not normally recycle. However, this example, dating from 1995, was involved in a serious collision resulting in extensive damage to the passenger side, it being a left-hand drive car. Obviously, there is no way that it can be returned to the road, so it was shipped over from Austria as a source of hard-to find parts to add to our ever increasing stock."
Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow II : FSD-413
Chassis No: SRH31096
"This Silver Shadow II left the factory in 1977 and has been with its previous owner for over 22 years. Finished in period colours of Walnut Brown with a Tan Everflex roof and trimmed in Beige Hide it appears to be in excellent condition, at first glance, but, unfortunately, a recent MOT inspection revealed a number of corrosion issues. It is in need of front floor panels, spring supports and a number of mountings, plus a large amount of extra welding. Add to that, the fact that the car is reluctant to move forwards, or backwards, suggesting a replacement gearbox may be required, and it becomes obvious that the car is unfortunately well beyond economical repair."
Bentley Turbo R : FSD-410
Chassis No: LCH32143
"First taking to the road in 1990, this particular example had covered over 130,000 miles, before suffering accident damage, primarily to the front end, but also to other areas. Way beyond economical repair, it was ‘written off’ and the remains came to us for recycling. The job is now complete with all salvageable components available, or already sold, to the benefit of roadworthy cars from the same era."
Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow : FSD-406
Chassis No: SRH14628
"Dating from 1973, this once attractive Silver Shadow was intended to be the subject of a long term restoration as and when time allowed. Another case where there was just not enough time resulting in the car standing around for too long and deteriorating in the process. With corrosion taking hold, and the mechanical components suffering, it was eventually decided to cease the project. The car has now been recycled."
Bentley Turbo R : FSD-405
Chassis No: HCH21903
"Arriving minus an engine and gearbox, this 1987 model was never going to travel very far. The engine, when it had one, was one of the first fuel injected versions. The photographs show that dismantling had already begun, before we acquired the car, so we have now completed the job and parts are on sale, or have been sold, to benefit similar cars, still on the road."
Bentley Continental GT : FSD-401
Chassis No: SCBCE63W75C027545
"Kept in excellent condition and well maintained, this 2005 Continental GT features a number of ‘Project Kahn’ upgrades. Unfortunately, a front-end accident has damaged the car, resulting in uneconomical repairs being required. Well preserved cars such as this provide a wealth of fine quality parts that are always in demand for these models."
Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud II : FSD-399
Chassis No: SYD266
"All the way from 1961 comes this Silver Cloud II. Originally described as a running restoration, this proved to be a little over ambitious, closer investigation upon arrival revealing a number of corrosion issues and mechanical failings. Try as we might, we could not come up with enough reasons to save it, so it’s off to the recyclers."
Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit : FSD-398
Chassis No: HCH20073
"One of the first fuel injection models, this 1987 Silver Spirit looks particularly well kept on first inspection. However, this is a perfect example of ‘beauty being skin deep’ in that the underneath structure was quite severely corroded. Cars like this, although too far gone to save, can yield a number of high quality used mechanical and trim components for other more roadworthy causes."
Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow : FSD-393
Chassis No: TBC
"Early Silver Shadows, such as this 1969 model, are often in demand for the rarer components that they can provide. However, it can also be a difficult decision to recycle what many regard as the purest examples of the breed. This particular car had a number of mechanical issues and, while appearing to be quite sound bodily, the underneath proved to be badly corroded, meaning that recycling was the most sensible option."
Bentley Mulsanne S : FSD-392
Chassis No: JCH23041
"First registered in 1988 this Mulsanne S is best described as an abandoned restoration project. Originally worked on when time allowed, it was given less and less attention until it became too big a task to complete. Assessed on arrival, it was declared beyond economical repair, as many of these cars can be, and has now been recycled."
Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow : FSD-391
Chassis No: TBC
"Arriving from the same source as FSD390, this normal wheelbase Silver Shadow formed a matching pair for happy wedding parties. Abandoned at the same time as the other car, at least they remained similar with equal amounts of greenery growing on both of them. They appear to have corroded at the same rate as well, and will very probably end their days together as guests of our enthusiastic recycling team."
Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow LWB : FSD-390
Chassis No: LRH24494
"First registered in 1976, this Silver Shadow is the relatively rare long wheelbase model, of which only 2776 were produced. This particular example saw service as a wedding carriage but, as is often the case, was parked in the open, unused for several years and deteriorated to the condition seen here. Corrosion is the main problem, plus the inevitable mechanical failures, caused by lack of use. It is always a difficult decision to recycle the rarer models, but it does seem that this one is too far gone to save."
Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud III Chassis : FSD-387
Chassis No: TBC
"A planned ‘ground-up’ restoration of a Silver Cloud started very well, as can be seen from the photographs of this well finished chassis. All components were prepared to a high standard but, unfortunately, a change of plan caused the job to be abandoned, the chassis to be stripped and the parts redistributed to other more deserving projects."
Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow : FSD-386
Chassis No: SRH2495
"An early Silver Shadow, first registered in May 1967, this car has been with its previous owner for some 38 years. Unused for the last 10 of these, it has been stored undercover in a workshop, and while suffering from the usual ‘lack of use’ issues, it is not too badly corroded. Featuring the desirable early dashboard, and simpler interior."
Bentley Continental Flying Spur : FSD-385
Chassis No: C043426
"This Continental Flying Spur dates from 2007 and received substantial accident damage to the front, rear and sides. Prior to the accident, the car was in regular use, and maintained correctly, so that the surviving components are in very good shape. Not a write-off, but uneconomical to repair and return to the road, it will be recycled to provide useful parts for other similar models."
Bentley Mulsanne S : FSD-383
Chassis No: SCBZS00A3LCH32321
"First registered in 1990, this Mulsanne ‘S’ was with its previous keeper for over 15 years. Unfortunately, it was ‘sidelined’ some time ago, the intention being to return it to its once fine condition. As is often the case, a number of parts were borrowed from it and either lost or never replaced, and the car fell into disrepair. Combined with lack of use, it is now only suitable for recycling."
Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud : FSD-381
Chassis No: SBC68
"Dating from 1956, this Silver Cloud was another case where the car looked quite presentable on top, but was hiding a number of horrors underneath. Initially offered for sale as a restoration project, it attracted substantial interest but no-one was brave enough to take it on. Therefore, the difficult decision was taken to hand the car to our recycling department, where it yielded many sought after parts for these now increasingly collectable models."
Bentley S2 : FSD-380
Chassis No: B448CU
"This relatively complete and original car was a potential restoration project for the former keeper. However, lack of time, coupled with the need for a total engine rebuild contributed to his decision to move on to another project. Following assessment in our workshops, it has been decided that it requires too much labour and money to make renovation viable so it will be recycled to provide much needed components for this range of cars."
Bentley Brooklands : FSD-379
Chassis No: SCBZE20CIVCH60173
"In regular use, this 1997 Brooklands had an unfortunate encounter with a falling tree, resulting in damage primarily to the offside rear quarter. Additional dents to the roof and wings ultimately resulted in it being financially ‘written off’ and while repairs were potentially possible, it had a greater value in component form. These later SZ models are becoming quite sought after, so the opportunity to recycle them is relatively rare."
Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow : FSD-378
Chassis No: SRH25720
"Claimed to require just a fuel pump to get it running, this late flared arch Shadow is in need of rather more than that, to save it. Rust has taken hold, together with moss, and a severe case of mould to the interior. Relatively complete, but a brief test has consigned it to the dismantling team for careful recycling."
Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow : FSD-377
Chassis No: CH25437
"Masquerading as a rare Bentley T1, this frightening sight is actually a 1976 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow with a Bentley radiator grille shell, nailed on to it. Very probably the best part of the car. The fact it arrived with no rear wheels is probably the least of its problems. Featuring a host of corroded panels and a truly shocking interior, our recyclers now face the challenge of identifying and removing the reusable components, before the dustmen arrive."
Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit : FSD-376
Chassis No: SCAZS0000ACH01486
"Yet another abandoned early Silver Spirit. Dating from 1980, this is one of the first of the range but, as is often the case, it has lain unused for many years. Well beyond economical repair, it will donate salvageable parts to more deserving causes."
Bentley S3 : FSD-372
Chassis No: B66CN
"Another 1964 UK registered S3 that relocated to America for some years, returning just a few months ago. Presumably enjoyed in the early years before being abandoned in the Californian sunshine which has not done it any favours. Requiring just too much time and money to make restoration worthwhile, it has donated its better bits to more deserving causes."
Bentley S3 : FSD-371
Chassis No: B202FG
"Originally registered in the UK in 1964, this late S3 ended up in California which is normally a guarantee against corrosion due to the favourable climate. However, we’re not sure of the condition of this one, when it arrived there. Repatriated by ourselves as a possible project, it soon proved to be rather beyond saving so has now been recycled to save more worthy examples."
Rolls-Royce Silver Spur : FSD-370
Chassis No: CH06779
"In very similar circumstances to the previous Spirit, this 1984 Silver Spur has also languished awaiting attention for several years. Decay has set in generally, and the mechanical condition has also suffered. Regardless of its rarer LWB specification, it would still require a very substantial investment to return to the road and will therefore be used to provide recycled components for other similar models."
Bentley T2 : FSD-368
Chassis No: TBC
"A conversation at the RREC annual rally resulted in our acquisition of this Bentley T2. Initially seen as a potential restoration project, the reality was a little different and again, the amount of work and finance required cannot be justified, so it will be recycled."
Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit : FSD-367
Chassis No: FCH13660
"An unfortunate garage incident resulted in this well cared for Silver Spirit being written off. A small fire outside of the car caused significant damage, as did the contents of the extinguisher, used to quell the flames. Previously cherished, the car will provide some excellent quality components to keep similar vehicles running nicely."
Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith II : FSD-365
Chassis No: LRH36357
"Acquired from one of our ‘trade’ customers, this relatively rare Silver Wraith II features the slightly longer wheelbase, exclusive to this model. However, having been in the trade for the past few years, several useful components had already been removed, prior to its arrival. These missing parts included most of the interior so the car went straight from the delivery trailer, into our workshops for immediate recycling."
Bentley Mulsanne S : FSD-364
Chassis No: KCH26105
"First registered in 1989, this Mulsanne ‘S’ has provided good reliable service to its last owner for some 5 years. However, a number of issues caused a recent MOT failure and that, together with the often seen corrosion problems, have resulted in the car becoming no longer economically viable. It will be recycled in due course."
Bentley Continental Flying Spur : FSD-362
Chassis No: SCBBE53W36C034015
"As can be seen from the pictures, this 2006 Continental Flying Spur met with an unfortunate accident resulting in it being written off. The damage prevents it from returning to the road, but it will yield a number of valuable parts for recycling and reconditioning."
Bentley Turbo R : FSD-361
Chassis No: SCBZR04A2LCH32011
"This 1990 Turbo R was in regular use until recently, but the owner had the chance to update to a later model. Weighing up the economics, he decided to take the plunge with the other car, but discovered a number of issues with this one, when he came to move it on. Luckily, we were able to relieve him of it, and has been recycled in the usual manner."
Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit II : FSD-355
Chassis No: SCAZS00A2MCH34843
"Originally registered in February 1991, this Silver Spirit II was in regular use until quite recently. The usual corrosion problems, together with a number of mechanical issues have, unfortunately, rendered the car beyond economical repair. The demand for recycled parts from these later SZ models continues to be strong and this particular example is already with our recyclers for careful dismantling."
Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow II : FSD-354
Chassis No: SRH34588
"A 1978 Silver Shadow II which has lain dormant for many years and suffered accordingly. The first Shadow that we have seen, fitted with a plywood drivers side front window which is not the best for visibility. Similarly, the undersized nearside front wheel will not have helped the ride and handling. The kindest thing here will be to recycle what we can, and dispose of the rest."
Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit : FSD-353
Chassis No: TBC
"Another early Spirit that came to us having already been partly dismembered. This one has served as a parts car for a southern based specialist and we have now acquired the remains to recycle what we can. Despite the appearance, we will still be able to salvage various useful components."
Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow LWB : FSD-350
Chassis No: LRH15269
"Already somewhat destroyed prior to arriving at Flying Spares, this rather rare long wheelbase saloon was always destined to be recycled. We’re not very sure of its past, but as the photographs show, there wasn’t a lot left on it so recycling did not take very long. Unfortunately, the sought after ‘LWB’ rear doors had also been removed prior to arrival. Some useful items have been salvaged for reconditioning, the rest has now been disposed of."
Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow : FSD-349
Chassis No: SRH19150
"Abandoned in an underground council car park in the London area, this Silver Shadow, first registered in 1975, was in a very poor state when discovered. Obviously not running, it was subjected to a severe jet washing and the pictures show the results. The car is complete and currently awaiting inspection to decide its future. As ‘Barn Finds’ become more popular, could ‘Car Park Finds’ be the way forward?"
Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit : FSD-348
Chassis No: ECH08349
"This 1983 Silver Spirit has been with the previous owner for the last eight years. Initially driven regularly, it has seen little use over the past few years, resulting in a number of problems. As is often the case, the work now required is not really financially viable, and the car is corroded quite badly. It will ultimately be recycled."
Bentley Eight : FSD-345
Chassis No: SCBZS8008GCH16160
"Engine problems, several years ago, resulted in removal of the power unit from this 1986 Bentley Eight, for intensive diagnosis. Unfortunately, this took rather longer than expected and the car remained motionless throughout. Stored outside, the elements have taken their toll and the results are shown here. We’re not quite sure what happened to the allegedly faulty V8, but feel that it’s now a little too late for it to be reunited with the remainder of the car. A definite candidate for recycling."
Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow : FSD-344
Chassis No: SRH14139
"A 1972 Silver Shadow that was last taxed in 2006. Since then, it has taken up residence in an agricultural barn and has deteriorated in the same way as many of its contemporaries. The barn has sheltered the car from the worst of the weather, and the engine is particularly well presented. Previous poor repairs to the bodywork have not helped and the car has been declared as well beyond economical repair."
Bentley S2 : FSD-342
Chassis No: B126AM
"Restoration of this 1959 S2 was originally well underway, but unfortunately, the owner had other commitments leaving him with no time to finish the project. Located in Maine, USA, the car was shipped over to the UK at the end of 2016, docking on the east coast on Christmas day. The car arrived largely complete, but with some sections, including the engine, in component form. Currently being assessed, interest has already been expressed in the well restored interior of the car, so that could well seal its fate."
Bentley Turbo R : FSD-341
Chassis No: SCBZS0T09HCH20166
"This early example of the fuel injected Turbo R was first registered in 1987. Initially offered to us back in the summer of 2016, we eventually acquired it in December. Another case of a car left standing, unused, for a long period. Ravaged by the elements, the body is now in very poor condition and extensive mechanical work is also required, making the car way beyond economical repair."
Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow : FSD-340
Chassis No: SRH9639
"This 1971 Silver Shadow was with the previous owner for over 22 years. The car has been unused for the last few of these, and, living by the coast has lead to some serious corrosion problems. This, together with damage to the driver’s door, and numerous mechanical and electrical problems make the car well beyond restoration. Therefore, it will be recycled to provide components for similar models."
Rolls-Royce Silver Spur : FSD-339
Chassis No: N/A
"This example began life as a Silver Spur, and then the previous custodian decided to convert it to a pick-up truck. Didn’t get very far though. Looking at the less than straight cut across the roof, it might have helped if his saw had been a little sharper. Add to that some angle iron, randomly welded to the ‘load area’ and you can see that the project was not particularly well considered. Similar conversions have been carried out more successfully in the past, but we feel that this attempt will be consigned to our recyclers."
Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow II : FSD-337
Chassis No: SRH37639
"First registered in 1979, this Silver Shadow II was originally purchased as a project by the previous owner. However, the amount of rectification required caused them rather more than a little concern and they decided to abandon their plans. In need of paintwork and mechanical work, it could possibly be rescued by a very dedicated enthusiast, but will more likely be recycled."
Bentley Eight : FSD-336
Chassis No: SCBZS8007HCH20976
"This early injected ‘Eight’ was originally offered for sale privately by its owner. However, when test driven by a prospective purchaser, the engine started making a strange noise, so he walked away. Finished in the ever popular colour combination of Dark Blue and Magnolia, it was our intention to repair the car and return it to the road. However, our mechanics described the engine noise sounding as if one or more baked bean cans were on the loose inside it, so it was declared terminal. Replacing the engine would not make financial sense, so the car will be recycled."
Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith II : FSD-334
Chassis No: LRH35530
"Dating from 1978, this Silver Wraith II came to us via one of our trade customers. Although quite rare, compared to the standard Shadow II, these cars still suffer from lack of use in exactly the same way. Reluctant to start, and suffering serious corrosion problems, this is another car that would take an enormous amount of effort, and money, to return to the road. It is pretty inevitable that it will be recycled."
Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow : FSD-333
Chassis No: SRH3319
"This is a 1967 Silver Shadow featuring the early ‘Chippendale’ dashboard. These cars are becoming quite collectible, but this one, although in semi-regular use has suffered from the usual problems. Following a gear actuator problem, the usual access panel has been rather brutally enlarged, and a non-standard metal pole attached, to aid gear selection. Could possibly be saved by a very ambitious enthusiast, but more likely to be recycled."
Bentley S2 : FSD-330
Chassis No: B200AM
"Originally purchased and imported from Denmark, this 1960 S2 was a very tidy example which met with an unfortunate accident on the way back from the MOT centre where it had just passed the test. Deemed uneconomical to repair by the owner, and his insurance company, we acquired the salvaged remains. Following a detailed inspection by ourselves, we have to agree with their decision, due to the severity of the damage, so the car will be recycled to provide much needed parts for similar cars."
Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit : FSD-328
Chassis No: SCAZS0007BCH01518
"This is a very early Silver Spirit, first registered in 1981. Following a number of years in the wedding business, the car was virtually abandoned, before being rescued for potential restoration. The new owner ‘invested’ time and money but the project proved to be rather daunting, so it was decided to abandon the car, yet again, and move on to something more worthwhile. It will consequently be recycled to provide a range of parts for sale and reconditioning."
Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit : FSD-327
Chassis No: SCAZS12C2TCH57462
"This is a late 1996 model Silver Spirit, fitted with the ‘wrap around’ style bumpers. A well kept motor car, prior to the unfortunate accident which resulted in severe damage to the rear end. Another car that will be recycled to provide much needed parts for the last of the Spirit range."
Rolls-Royce Silver Seraph : FSD-325
Chassis No: SCALA61E1YCH04042
"The Silver Seraph is a relatively rare car, having only been produced from 1998 to 2002. This car was first registered in 2000 and, despite having covered only a modest mileage, the severity of the accident damage has resulted in it being declared a ‘Category B’ write-off, so it has to be recycled. Well maintained prior to the crash, it will provide many quality used parts, some of which are also suitable for the Bentley Arnage range from the same period."
Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow II : FSD 323
Chassis No: SRH0039810
"This late model Silver Shadow II was first registered in April 1980 and was with its previous keeper for over nine years. Initially reserved as a ‘restoration project’, further investigation revealed numerous problems, both mechanical and bodily, making the project no longer viable. It has now be recycled."
Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow : FSD-322
Chassis No: SRH25264
"Another car that has been left exposed to the elements for a number of years, this flared arch model dates from 1975. The condition is best described as poor, both bodily and mechanically, with an unusual amount of rust present on both front and rear bumpers. Parts from this car will be reconditioned, where possible, and others cleaned and offered to more deserving causes."
Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow : FSD-320
Chassis No: SRH25706
"A flared wheel arch Silver Shadow, dating from 1976, this is another example that has suffered from severe neglect. Rust has taken hold beneath, as well as where visible on the bodywork, and it would require a considerable investment of both time and money to make this car roadworthy again. Another car that will provide a source of useful parts."
Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow II : FSD-319
Chassis No: SRH0039888
"This 1979 Silver Shadow II has spent a few years in the Republic of Ireland, initially in regular use but then somewhat neglected, leading to its current state. Generally tired, and in need of mechanical overhaul, the car would be uneconomical to restore, so will be recycled by our experienced team."
Bentley Continental GT : FSD-318
Chassis No: SCBCE63WX4C020569
"This is a high mileage, well used early Continental GT, first registered in 2004. Having covered in excess of 130,000 miles, and in need of some mechanical and cosmetic attention, the value of the car is now rather limited, but it will provide a useful source of parts for other models. It is easy to forget that the ‘GT’ range of cars is now approaching 13 years old, but they still retain a modern appearance, early examples becoming a relatively affordable way to experience supercar performance."
Bentley Continental Flying Spur : FSD-314
Chassis No: C035716
"First registered in 2006, this Continental Flying Spur is approaching 10 years old and, following accident damage to the front, is now deemed uneconomical to return to the road. Demand for used parts for this range of cars remains strong, so it will be recycled to provide suitable components."
Bentley Arnage T : FSD-313
Chassis No: SCBLF34F16CH11165
"Originally supplied to Japan when new, this 2006 Arnage T then travelled to New Zealand, before arriving in Market Bosworth. Somewhere along the way, a frontal impact occurred resulting in the damage shown. Unfortunately, the accident has affected the suspension and subframe components making repairs, if possible, very expensive. Recycled parts for the later range of Arnage models are quite hard to come by, so this car will be recycled to satisfy demand."
Bentley Mulsanne : FSD-312
Chassis No: SCBZSOOO4BCH03951
"This 1982 Mulsanne was well maintained, and quite original, prior to donating it’s engine to a bespoke ‘special’. The early Mulsanne is a somewhat rare motor car, compared to the Silver Spirit of the same era. However, having stood for a while following the engine removal, it has now deteriorated beyond economical repair and will be recycled."
Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow II : FSD-311
Chassis No: SRH0041483
"A late model Silver Shadow II from 1980. Another abandoned restoration project, left standing exposed to the elements for some time, and now only suitable for recycling."
Bentley Continental Flying Spur : FSD-310
Chassis No: SCBBE53W76C031313
"We have recently acquired a Bentley Continental Flying Spur saloon which is being recycled. First registered in 2005, this example has been well used, but will provide an invaluable source of used parts."
Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow II : FSD-309
Chassis No: SRH40482
"This was one of the last Silver Shadow II’s to be registered in 1980. Well maintained and looked after, an unfortunate rear end shunt caused substantial damage to the structure of the car, resulting in it being written off. There are occasions when a car that is written off financially can be restored but in this case, that was not an option, so the car has now been recycled."
Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow : FSD-308
Chassis No: SRH18840
"Dating from June 1974, this car was with its former keeper for some 11 years, performing wedding car duties for much of this time. Unusually, the car was painted white from new, not resprayed later in life as is the case with many cars used for this purpose. Well maintained, time has now taken its toll on the bodywork, and the car is in need of mechanical attention also. A final decision is yet to be made, but the recycling team are looking at it with anticipation."
Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit : FSD-306
Chassis No: SCAZSOOOIECH09490
"This 1984 Silver Spirit had a particularly good pre-injection engine which has been donated to a custom-built ‘special’. Unfortunately, the rest of the car was not required and, being left exposed to the elements for some time, is now only suitable for recycling."
Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow II : FSD-305
Chassis No: SRH0040797
"A late model Silver Shadow II, first registered in 1980, this car was used regularly and kept in fine condition, prior to meeting with an unfortunate accident earlier in 2016. It had been fitted with a rebuilt engine around 3,000 miles prior to the accident, so while obviously beyond repair bodily, the engine is very much ready to be transplanted in to a similar motor car."
Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit : FSD-303
Chassis No: SCAZS0009CCH04390
"This 1982 Silver Spirit came to us minus the engine which has been transplanted into a bespoke ‘special’. The remainder of the car is in pretty good shape and it appears to have been fairly well maintained. A useful source of parts and core units."
