Here is a really original presenting, early Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit finished in not often seen, Light Oyster (light mushroom metallic) with rich honey tan Connolly hides. It has twin fine lines to the waist-rails in a mid-tan to match the interior. The car shines with all the elegance and gentry one would feel driving on the edge of the Norfolk Coast, just as the colour name would suggest you be. These early Spirits are not so often seen anymore and it is truly a delight to come across such an original presenting example such as this one. The Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit is powered by a 6.75 litre Rolls-Royce designed and built V8 engine with the Bosch fuel injection system which provides ultra smooth touring. This example is very original in every detail. It still has its original 80s mobile phone! (It can easily be removed if you so prefer.) A very clean example that was first delivered in California and then moved to the mid-west with 10,000 miles showing in 1986. Owned by a wealthy Illinois businessman for some 30 years forth, even though in the mid-west, she was never driven in inclement weather and as such is very clean underneath. She was subsequently sold to a Rolls-Royce enthusiast some 5 years ago from which we purchased the car (deceased estate). She has a perfectly clean Carfax history, regularly serviced with anything requiring doing, attended to. Recently, all the hydraulics and braking system were inspected and serviced as required. Under the bonnet, the presentation is very clean. It has not been precision detailed but simply well kept and maintained throughout its life. Mileage is 87,000 and with its regular and attentive maintenance, behaves and presents like a car of half the miles. The body of the car is straight and the paint entirely consistent. She was completely repainted some 15 years ago – and a very fine repaint at that – so she presents stunningly well. There is hardly a mark or defect that stands out to detract from its overall beautiful presentation. She is deep in lustre and shine and without any fade at all. Rubbers, mouldings, badges and external fittings are all in good condition. The interior on this car is gorgeous and completely original in presentation. The un-touched factory original Connolly leather shows beautifully with just the right amount of natural patina. It all presents clean with the seat leather supple and soft. A very welcomed feature, is the leather has never been redyed. For those of you who may not know, Vaumol Luxan grain by Connolly was unique to Rolls-Royce. When these hides were tanned, the Luxan process involved hand-rubbing of a darker tone into the grain of the leather. This gives the leather a rich antique look so you can see the natural features right down to the individual pores. Somewhat like you see on a classical Chesterfield couch or the top finish an old antique desk. The look is truly gorgeous. Some who do not know, might look at this and think the leather is worn or dirty. No! This is the way it is meant to be. If you are not one to appreciate the attention to detail as seen with Vaumol Luxan grain by Connolly, that goes into a Rolls-Royce motor car, then perhaps a very original Rolls-Royce such is this one, is not for you. And we will respectfully decline any request to redye it. It is not meant to look like a new Lexus! The interior wood is also original but it does show some hairline marks in the clear lacquer of the dash and the door cappings, with some delamination on the left rear door. In a perfect world, these should be redone but they do not present in an overly unsightly manner. Should you be interested in having them refinished, we do so in-house and can attend to for you (please enquire). Carpets, seats, dash, rear parcel shelf, fixtures and fittings are truly nice and I best encourage you to look at all the photos to fully appreciate how well the interior presents. The rich honey tan Connolly interior delivers a very warm and
