THE ESSENTIALS

[svgallery name=”1982_Rolls_Spur”]

This is a three-owner Silver Spur (the long wheelbase model) having been celebrity owned and the ultimate in luxury touring.  The original owner was the noted celebrity Phyllis Diller who bought the car new at Beverly Hills Rolls-Royce.  This is a 78,800 original mile car that is a wonderful driving car and provides great panache for the investment.  It is a wonderful car to participate in RROC events or to drive around town.  It is not, however, a show car.

It has recently benefitted from new leather upholstery.  The leather is very correct and matches perfectly with the original door panels.  The wood needs to be re-finished and there are minor issues to be sorted, such as a window switch for the drivers door not being operable.  The Magnolia livery and matching Everflex top are in good condition, with many areas of patina evident.  Magnolia is still a very popular color, as it is understated and practical in warmer, sunnier climates.

It still retains the license plate frames from the Beverly Hills dealership although it had an owner in Arizona and finally the present owner (our client) now being located in Temecula, CA.   This is a fabulous driving proper motorcar that can provide the new owner with luxury and elegance for a modest investment.

Rolls-Royce Silver Spur/Silver Spirit

Interesting Fact: The Rolls-Royce Silver Spur is a long-wheelbase version of the Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit that was manufactured from 1980 to 2000.

Interesting Fact: The Rolls-Royce Silver Spur is a long-wheelbase version of the Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit that was manufactured from 1980 to 2000. It was also the first model to feature a retractable Spirit of Ecstasy, which would retract into the radiator shell if dislodged.    Both the Silver Spur and Silver Spirit carried over designs from their predecessor the Silver Shadow. This included using a 6.75 L L410 V8 engine along with a GM-sourced THM400 3-speed transmission. Each vehicle was considered a full-size luxury car and self-leveling suspension systems with ride height control and shock absorbers ensure a comfortable ride quality.   There were two variations of the Silver Spur released in the 1990s: The Flying Spur and the Silver Dawn. The Flying Spur is a turbocharged model that features a higher performance than the base model. Only 134 of these were ever produced. The Silver Dawn is a specialized edition of the Spur and featured new technology for the time such as electronic traction assistance systems and heated rear seats.    Production on both base models officially closed in 1997 but continued until 2000 when the Silver Spirits parts were fully out of stock. The luxurious craftsmanship that went into the production of the Silver Spur and Silver Spirit paved the way for future Rolls-Royce vehicles.
