1985 Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit/Spur/Dawn 'CENTENARY EDITION' WITH 12K MILES!Please note that experience shows us that the photobucket of over 100 large pixel pictures posted here are in most cases best viewed and downloaded using the very latest and most updated version of the 'Firefox' browser as some other browsers and especially older browser versions are not capable of accommodating the size of the download. 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, in sometimes unflattering but natural sunlight, in 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 very rare and collectible, 1 of only 25 special edition models built in 1985 only, original southern California family owned 1985 Rolls Royce Silver Spur 'Centenary Edition' Sedan with a very striking original color combination of 'Royal Blue' (color code 9510457) paint with a matching Everflex roof and a 'Champagne with Dark Blue piping' Connolly leather interior and with only 12K original miles! The car will be sold with all its original dealer handbooks and manuals and has obviously always been well maintained and serviced and garaged since new!
With the 'Silver Spur Centenary' edition the production of the 100,000th Rolls-Royce was celebrated together with the centenary of the British Motor Industry. Only 25 Replicas of this Silver Spur Centenary were built and they were all exactly alike, with the exception of the numbered commemorative plaques. This particular example is #9 of 25. The year 1985 was the year in which England celebrated 100 years of motoring. It also happened to be the year when the 100,000th motor car having been finished by Rolls-Royce was celebrated by the manufacturer. All the Derby and Crewe built Bentleys were also included in the production figure of 100,000. A limited series of 25 identical cars, equally lavishly equipped with not even silver decanters spared, were eagerly snapped up by collectors worldwide.
The first chassis number built was: SCAZN0006FCH14001 (1985) and the last chassis number was: SCAZN0009FCH14025 (1985).
There were only 9 Right Hand Drive (RHD) examples of these 25 cars built which were delivered to the homemarket of Great Britain, and only 16 Left Hand Drive (LHD) examples of which 12 models were exported to the United States, 1 LHD to Saudi Arabia, 1 LHD to Dubai, 1 LHD to Monaco and 1 LHD to Germany.
All 25 models had the following identical options:
- Finished in Royal Blue with a matching 'Dark Blue' Everflex roof and matching interior carpets and trunk and with Champagne colored Connolly hides with Dark Blue piping.
- Monogrammed walnut door panels.
- Inlaid picnic tables.
- Chrome commemorative plaques to the inside of the glovebox door and entry kickplates.
- Unique identification plate on the boot lid.
Always a non-smoking single southern California family owned car since new and obviously rarely driven and always well cared for, the car shows true pride of ownership. The beautiful and original 'Royal Blue' factory color (code 9510457) paint with original factory painted contrasting pin stripes and with a matching 'Dark Blue (code 5470) Everflex roof color combination is very striking with Rolls Royce hubcaps and 4 brand new 'Michelin' tires. The car has its original full 'Champagne Nuella with Dark Blue Nuella pinstripes' (Trim Code 5001) Connolly leather interior and matching Dark Blue carpets and trunk, all of which is in virtually flawless condition throughout. The paint is in exceptionally fine condition and all the chrome work including the front grille and bumpers is absolutely outstanding. The leather seats, dashboard and headliner show virtually no signs of any wear whatsoever. Obviously always garaged and owned by only obviously one very careful and meticulous owner/driver family since new - never ever abused!
The car was serviced recently at the renown 'Frank McLain & Sons', independent Rolls Royce & Bentley specialists of Encino, California and the car has a clean bill of health which should assure its new owner of trouble-free driving for some time to come! 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, the transmission is very smooth with Rolls Royce's legendary almost imperceptible shift and the engine temperature always remains cool. Turn-key ready, this particular model drives exactly as when it must have when it left the showroom floor over twenty-three years ago, you could not possible tell the difference! All the options are working as they should including the A/C. The car has a clean CARFAX report which is available upon request and which confirms both the car's low original mileage and original southern California ownership.
You will surely look long and hard to find a finer example of this exceptionally low and original 12K miles 1985 Rolls Royce Silver Spur 'Centenary Edition' sedan! For those who are unfamiliar, Rolls 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, England 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 and lowest mileage examples available anywhere of this rare and very collectible 'Centenary Edition' model with 12K original miles - 1 of only 25 ever built and 1 of only 12 models ever exported to the US - model #9 of 25 to be exact! - So bid with confidence, this will no doubt prove a fabulous investment for the Rolls Royce enthusiast or collector or simply a great daily driver or weekend toy for the discerning luxury classic car owner who demands one of the rarest of all Rolls Royce's!
