Description:

1981 Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit/Spur/Dawn

ENGINE RUNS WELL. TRANSMISSION IS FINE. CAR MOVES FREELY UNDER ITS OWN POWER & HAS GREAT WORKING BRAKES & THE HYDRAULIC SUSPENSION RIDES SMOOTH AND FUNCTIONS PROPERLY. IT HAS NEW SHOCKS AND RIDE HEIGHT LEVELING SYSTEM.
ENGINE IS GREAT. NO WEIRD SMOKE OR UNUSUAL NOISES. IT'S SOLID & POWERFUL & SOUNDING VERY HEALTHY, JUST AS THESE ENGINES WERE ALWAYS KNOWN FOR THEIR POWER & DECADES OF RELIABILITY.
I BOUGHT THIS CAR FROM A SELLER A FEW MONTHS BACK HERE IN PALM BEACH. HE OWNS A MECHANIC SHOP & HAD ALWAYS WANTED & DREAMED - JUST LIKE THE REST OF US - OF OWNING THE BEST CAR IN THE WORLD - A ROLLS-ROYCE. I HEARD ABOUT THE CAR LANGUISHING AROUND IN A WAREHOUSE JUST COLLECTING DUST WITH ANOTHER ROLLS-ROYCE SILVER SHADOW & QUITE A FEW OTHER COLLECTOR CARS POSSIBLY BEING FOR SALE, & I PURSUED HIM TO SELL ME THE ALL THE CARS. LIKE MANY OF US CAR GUYS, HE HAD TOO MANY COOL RESTORATION PROJECTS WAITING YEARS TO BE FOCUSED ON. HE COULD REALLY USE THE MONEY FROM THE SALE OF BOTH THE ROLLS-ROYCE TO MOVE FORWARD ON HIS OTHER PROJECTS.
I BOUGHT THIS CAR & THE SILVER SHADOW ALSO. I HAD PLANNED TO RESTORE BOTH TO THEIR FORMER GLORY AND CHOOSE THE BEST ONE TO KEEP & SELL THE OTHER FOR TOP DOLLAR. SINCE THAT TIME, IN MY ELDER YEARS, MY HEALTH HAS BEEN AN ISSUE. I HAVE HAD TO MAKE THE TOUGH DECISION TO SELL THIS CAR IS-IS IN ORDER TO TRY & FINISH MY TOP PRIORITY. A MUCH OLDER ROLLS-ROYCE FROM THE 30's - IN TIME TO ACTUALLY GET TO ENJOY IT. THEREFORE, MANY OF MY OTHER RESTORATION PROJECT TOYS WILL SOON BE LISTED HERE ALSO. ALL PRICED TO SELL AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE.
THIS SILVER SPIRIT IS A TRULY WORTHY RESTORATION PROJECT. LOW RESERVE TO SELL IT IMMEDIATELY. CLEAR TITLE IN HAND. INSPECTIONS WELCOME & ADVISED. THIS CAR IS WORTH TRIPLE MY LOW RESERVE PRICE IN PARTS ALONE. IT REPRESENTS A GREAT MONEY MAKING OPPORTUNITY FOR SOMEONE NEEDING PARTS AND COULD SELL THE REST. IT'S REALLY TOO NICE A RUNNING & DRIVING CAR TO SIMPLY CUT UP FOR PARTS. YOUR CHOICE. I'M NOT INCLINED TO MAKE A PROJECT OF IT LIKE THAT THOUGH.
THE FORMER OWNER SPENT A SMALL FORTUNE ON NEW FRESH LEATHER FOR THE FRONT SEATS AS WELL AS FRONT SEAT ARM RESTS & THE LOWER REAR SEAT. INTERIOR IS OVERALL IS DECENT, YET WILL STILL NEED SOME RE-UPHOLSTERY WORK TO BE PERFECT AGAIN. I HAVE 2 ROLLS OF FRESH CARPET THAT WILL COME WITH THE CAR. INTERIOR IS VERY USABLE AS IS FOR THE NEXT FEW YEARS, IF THAT IS YOUR CHOICE. ALL WINDOWS WORK EXCEPT FOR ONE REAR. IT APPEARS MOST OF THE WOOD IN THE CAR HAS ALREADY BEEN REFINISHED. THE REAR VANITY MIRRORS ARE THE ONLY ONES NEEDING ATTENTION. THE CAR IS MISSING SOME EASILY OBTAINABLE PARTS SUCH AS A TURN SIGNAL LAMP AND THE WINDSHIELD WIPER COVER. I CAN HELP YOU FIND THOSE PARTS EASY ENOUGH.
THE TIRES ARE MIS-MATCHED SPARES. THE 1st COUPLE TIMES I TOOK IT OUT ON THE FREEWAY AT SPEED, I HAD A BLOW-OUT EACH TIME. EVEN THOUGH I HAVE DRIVEN IT AROUND THE NEIGHBORHOOD NUMEROUS TIMES & ON THE SIDE-STREETS TO GET A GOOD FEEL FOR THE CAR, I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND DRIVING IT ANY LONG DISTANCE ON THESE TIRES. I HAVE THE 4 CENTER HUB-CAPS & THE 4 OUTER STAINLESS TRIM RINGS INCLUDED IN THE SALE. I'LL UPDATE PICTURES OF THEM IN THE MORNING.
IT'S A PRETTY DAMN STRAIGHT & CLEAN CAR OVERALL, BUT DEFINITELY NEEDS A PAINT JOB. AS YOU CAN SEE, THE LAST LACQUER PAINT JOB IS PEELING AND CRACKING OFF. AS ANY 40+ YEAR OLD CAR, IT NEEDS TENDER LOVING CARE TO BRING IT BACK TO ITS FORMER GLORY. MOST OF THE CHROME & STAINLESS IS GREAT, BUT AS YOU CAN SEE, THERE ARE SOME MASKING TAPE REMNANTS WHERE IT WAS IN THE PROCESS OF BEING READIED FOR A RE-SPRAY AS THE NEXT STEP OF FORMER OWNER'S SIDE-TRACKED MISSION. I WAS DEBATING HAVING IT RE-SPRAYED, YET I DECIDED TO LET THE NEXT OWNER DECIDE WHAT COLOR HE WANTS & WHAT LEVEL OF QUALITY HE CAN AFFORD. THEREFORE, THE CAR IS PRETTY MUCH AS HONEST AS IT GETS. NO FAKERY OR TRICKERY ON THIS CAR. IT IS WHAT IT IS. A GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY FOR SOMEONE WHO HAS ALWAYS WANTED HIS/HER ENTRY-LEVEL ROLLS-ROYCE AT AN EXTREMELY AFFORDABLE PRICE.
