Over the years our clients have overwhelmingly been appreciative of our many unaltered large pixel photos posted in our ads and our feedback has been that it is very rare that a dealer will post all but the most flattering of professionally finished photographs. We prefer to post the many photos taken of the car, n sometimes unflattering but natural sunlight, n order for our prospective buyers to be able to see true and reliable images of the car advertised and that is the reason for some seemingly duplicated shots. We trust you will agree.
West Coast Classics are proud to present an absolutely stunning and exceptional example of this 1987 Rolls Royce Silver Spur LWB Sedan with a very striking original color combination of 'Acrylic White' factory color code 9510235 paint with a matching White Everflex roof and a tan Connolly leather hide seats interior with white piping interior and with only one meticulous careful southern California owner since new! The car has obviously always been well maintained and serviced and always garaged since new!
In mid 1987 Rolls Royce introduced the 20,000 series, ith a major design update from the previous models. To distinguish these updated cars, he serial numbers jumped from 15,000 to 20,000 with this particular example being number 20,283! These 1987.5 until 1989 models are referred to simply as the desirable 20,000 series as a result. The model designation did not change - the models remained named the Silver Spirit and Silver Spur but the refinements and improvements included a redesign of dash with more modern instruments which improved the interior look quite considerably with the old rectangular trip computer box being replaced with better looking round gauges. The cars had an improved Bosch fuel injection system and a more robust cooling system and there were a number of design improvements to the brake system. There was also a new Japanese air conditioning system that replaced the old GM based system.
Always a non-smoking southern California car since new, t was sold to its first and only owner, southern California lawyer on 4/4/1987 and will be sold with all its original manuals. The car was reportedly special ordered with numerous no expense spared 'state of the art' upgrades; including a built in rear television set with a VHS tape recorder, ustom stereo system, ustom rear seat drink compartments, ood inlays etc; by a Saudi prince who paid for the car, ut never took delivery of it, rom 'Rusnak Rolls Royce' of Pasadena, A. It was then sold and titled to its first owner, southern California lawyer who saw the car on the showroom floor in 1987 and has owned the car until we purchased it from him last month. He regularly commuted in the car on long freeway trips from his home to his law office until his recent retirement.
The car shows true pride of ownership, hich is absolutely extraordinary considering the car boasts over 250K original miles! As most Rolls Royce and Bentley enthusiasts will tell you though, his is actually how you want to buy them as used cars for everyday driving, ith well maintained miles, ot undriven and unused cars with everything from hydraulic systems to rubber suspension pieces, rom shock absorbers to gaskets and seals all deteriorated and perished without use. This car was always regularly serviced on schedule since new primarily only at Rolls Royce dealerships and specialists; originally 'Rusnak Rolls Royce' of Pasadena, A and then at 'Terry York Rolls Royce' of Encino, A and in recent years it has been serviced at the renown independent Rolls Royce specialists, Frank McLain & Sons' of Encino, alifornia, where it recently received another comprehensive full service. We would wager anyone to tell this car from the same car with 200K miles less, t is that remarkable and exceptional both cosmetically and mechanically and a true testament to its long and obviously cherished ownership. Its next lucky owner will most certainly own a car that is indistinguishable from a similar model with less than a quarter of its miles, et they will be owning it for less than anyone would ever imagine possible!
The beautiful and original 'Acrylic White' factory color with original factory painted tan pin stripes and with a matching White Everflex roof color combination is quite rare and very striking with matching color combination Rolls Royce hubcaps and with a full tan Connolly leather interior with contrasting tan piping and matching carpets and trunk, ll of which is in virtually flawless condition throughout. Quite astonishing considering the cars miles! The paint is in very fine condition and all the chrome work including the front grille and bumpers is absolutely outstanding. The leather seats, ashboard and headliner show virtually no signs of any wear whatsoever. Obviously always garaged with no accidents or damage history whatsoever and owned by obviously one very careful and meticulous owner/driver since new - never ever abused!
The car drives exactly like a well maintained and serviced Rolls Royce should and must be driven to be fully appreciated and seen to be believed! The engine is extremely strong with no oil leaks, he transmission is very smooth with Rolls Royce's legendary almost imperceptible shift and the engine temperature always remains cool. Turn-key ready, his particular model drives almost exactly as when it must have when it left the showroom floor over twenty-three years ago, ou could not possible tell the difference! All the options are working as they should including the A/C.
You will surely look long and hard to find a finer example of this 1987 Rolls Royce Silver Spur Long Wheel Base sedan with no history of any accidents or damage of any kind ever! This increasingly collectible 20,000 series model long wheel base Silver Spur model is becoming increasingly hard to find with only some 600 models built in total each year (6,238 models built between it's 1980-89 production years) and even fewer obviously being built during the last two years of the 20,000 series!
For those who are unfamiliar, olls Royce no longer exists as it had for over one hundred years - this is one of the last in the original line of cars built in the legendary Rolls Royce factory in Crewe, ngland with a quality and craftsmanship that far surpasses that of today's mass produced models with many BMW parts - this is a rare opportunity to own a piece of automobile history, from a time when Rolls Royce was truly building the world's finest motor cars.
This must certainly be one of the finest examples available anywhere at this low price of this desirable 20,000 series only due to the car's high mileage - so bid with confidence, this will no doubt prove a fabulous daily driver or weekend toy for the car's next lucky owner!
