A sweet-spot with this model, being one of the final few hundred Spirit 1’s with fuel injection and not suffering the quality issues of the carburetted earlier cars nor the head-gasket risks with the later ones. The opulent specification of this unique example was chosen by the original owner- a prominent (Sunday Times rich-list) businessman, whose penchant for warm, natural colours suggest the car was purchased more to relax with in the country rather than be chauffeured in for city meetings. Perhaps this is why it remained with him for 31 years covering just 26,000 miles before he passed the Rolls on to a car enthusiast acquaintance, who being in the furnishings business had always been fascinated by the exquisite, bespoke upholstery tailored specially by Rolls Royce for the owner. Other interesting features include lockable upholstered central compartment, front grab-handles, Spur wheel embellishers and wiring for a fridge. Having covered 2,000 miles within the last year, the vehicle’s underside was stripped back for rust-protection and treatment to be renewed (including waxoil), new battery, service and front discs were skimmed. Very recently, regarded RR specialists Frank Dale & Stepsons carried out an appraisal and fitted new rear discs, pads and manifold gasket as per their recommendation. Factory specification black-wall Avon tyres were renewed within the last year. Finished in Brooklands Green over Ice Green with Harris Opera Velvet piped in Tan Hide, this exceptionally low mileage, well tested and unique Silver Spirit is in wonderful condition.
