Owning a Rolls Royce Silver Spur back in the early 1980s was a personal statement. With large, opulent leather interior, a powerful 6,750cc V8 engine and a smooth GM three-speed auto gearbox, it said that 'you'd made it'.
This example was built in 1982 and purchased by the vendor in 1984. It presents well with 'good' bodywork, 'very good' cream paintwork and has 'excellent' gearbox and engine. There are some interesting upgrades: a Harvey Bailey suspension kit provides a confident ride and Lucas driving/fog lights sit under the front bumper. Inside, the vendor states that the beige leather interior is in very good condition.
The car comes with lots of history covering its 128,000 recorded miles, including a major £7,000 service and partial restoration in 1998 by Jack Barclay that included floorpan replacement. With an MOT valid until September 2020 and selling with its '1 JNS' private plate, this is a really special lot.
