Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit 1981

Chassis: SCAZS0000ACH01426

“Recently purchased from a classic vehicle auction, this early Silver Spirit, dating from 1981, appeared to be a good purchase in relatively nice condition. Looking attractive in its original period Gold finish, with contrasting parchment hide interior, it had only two former custodians, with a recorded mileage of just over 100,000. However, the successful bidder arranged for the car to be transported to a respected independent Rolls-Royce specialist for a full assessment and for attention to a couple of issues. The prognosis was not encouraging. Acquired as a potential daily driver by the excited new owner, it soon became clear that major mechanical work would be required to ensure reliability, and there were also a number of corrosion issues in need of attention. Faced with the prospect of considerable expense, the new custodian’s excitement soon faded, and he set off in search of something a little more suited to his needs. We do share his disappointment, but were happy to help him out of his awkward situation and provide him with some funds to aid his new quest.”
