1980 ROLLS-ROYCE SIL­VER SPIRIT

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Buying & Selling -

Think of Sil­ver Spir­its at auc­tion and scruffy white car­riage trade ex­am­ples spring to mind. But find a very good one like this and it’s pos­si­ble to see the Shadow suc­ces­sor in a much more pos­i­tive light. His­torics’ car ticked all the boxes, be­ing a very early (and con­se­quently cleaner-lined) model. But there was fur­ther en­cour­age­ment, the most pleas­ing be­ing its one-owner sta­tus. That owner was had good taste, spec­i­fy­ing claret paint with black Ever­flex roof and cream hide in­te­rior. The body­work was just about flaw­less, be­ing free of even the tini­est scratch or dent, the Ever­flex as new and the bright­work gleam­ing. The deep red paint was shiny in the way Royces of this pe­riod were when new, while the in­te­rior was nigh-on per­fect – even the driver’s seat ap­peared never to have been sat in. So tempt­ing – try find­ing an­other as good as this one for the money.
