  Lot 46

1984 Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit

Lot details

Registration No: A829 VYH
Chassis No: SCAZS0008ECH08448
MOT: November 2023

  • Supplied new by St Helier's Garage of Jersey and finished in special order Richmond Blue with Magnolia leather upholstery
  • Purchased from the renowned marque specialist P&A Wood by its last registered keeper in 2003 at a warranted 42,000 miles
  • Regularly serviced and maintained over the last two decades and much smarter than the average Silver Spirit
  • Offered for sale with original book pack, service book (stamped 16 times), extensive history file, numerous receipts / invoices and a fresh MOT

A square-cut, broad-shouldered design, the Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit was styled in-house by Austrian-born Fritz Feller. Although derived from that of the preceding Silver Shadow, the newcomer’s floorpan offered considerable improvements in both ride and handling thanks to its novel Girling automatic ride height control and gas shock absorbers. By combining copious amounts of sound deadening with the finest quality upholstery, Crewe's engineers kept intrusion from the 6.75 litre V8 engine and automatic transmission to a muted hush (unless the model's reputed 120mph potential was explored). Driver inputs were minimised with power-assisted steering and disc brakes. Only in production between 1980 and 1989, just 8,129 Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit Saloons are thought to have been made.

Supplied new via St Helier Garages Ltd of Jersey to local resident R. Grimshaw Esq on 28th January 1984, chassis ECH08448 was imported to the mainland eighteen years later by which time it had covered some 39,000 miles. Maintained by renowned marque specialists P&A Wood and Britannia Motor Engineers since being UK road registered as ‘A829 VYH’, the Silver Spirit’s accompanying service book contains no fewer than sixteen stamps the last of which was added during February 2021 (less than 1,000 miles ago). Good enough to be sold by P&A Wood to its previous (second UK) keeper during 2003, the luxury saloon remains highly presentable two decades later. Finished in the very rare and fetching colour of Richmond Blue, the Rolls-Royce’s sumptuous interior features Magnolia leather upholstery (piped in Dark Blue), Dark Blue carpets (piped in Magnolia) and Burr Walnut veneers. Obviously much pampered, the luxury saloon looks younger than its warranted mileage of 80,900 would suggest with a notably smart engine bay. Starting readily and running well during a brief test drive, ‘A829 VYH’ has lost none of its ability to impress occupants and other road users. Worthy of close inspection, this handsome Silver Spirit is offered for sale with V5C Registration Document, original book pack, history file and fresh MOT certificate.
