Harry's Thoughts

This is certainly one of the nicest original 1985 Rolls-Royce Silver Spurs in the world. If you are a serious collector looking for the best, consider this.

THE ESSENTIALS

This is an exceptional 13,000-mile 1985 Rolls-Royce Silver Spur that has been a California car since new and is in near showroom condition.  Presented in triple black livery, this Silver Spur has been very well maintained by a factory trained Rolls-Royce engineer and truly needs nothing.  This Silver Spur is arguably one of the finest extant and would be a wonderful preservation class concours entrant.

There were 671 LHD Silver Spurs produced worldwide in 1985.  This Silver Spur was ordered by Roy Carver Inc. of San Diego on the 31st of July 1984.  By the 23rd of November 1984, the Spur was shipped to Lyndhurst via the Sealand Voyager arriving on the 5th of December.  The Spur was sold by Terry York Motor Cars in Encino, CA on December 28th, 1984, to the Berman Car Company of Chatsworth, CA for transport of VIP guests of Hollywood studios and entertainments companies.  The Spur was faithfully serviced by marque specialist Rick’s Automotive in Granada Hills, CA.  By 1990, the Rolls had accumulated 5,100 miles.  This Rolls was acquired by its present owner, Mr. Solakian from Northern California, in October 2017 with just over 8,200 miles accumulated since new.  He then sent it to the local Rolls-Royce engineer who started his career in Crewe at the factory.  The Rolls now has just over 13,000 miles and is in near showroom condition in every way.

The original black livery (Paint Code 9500701) is spectacular, truly appearing as new with minimal evidence of being nearly 40 years old.  The paint has perfect shine and luster and is complemented with double Silver coach stripes.  The Black Everflex top (Code 5218/DH) is also in excellent condition without the normal sub-surface rust.  It also looks in showroom condition.  The chrome and stainless are also in fantastic condition with no issues.  The white walled radials were installed by the present owner in 2017 and are in excellent condition.

The Black leather interior is in excellent condition with only very minimal creasing and without tears.  The leather is also fairly soft and truly exceptional for original 40-year-old leather.  The Black Wilton wool carpeting is bound with black leather and has its black mouton sheepskin overlays.  The gorgeous burl walnut wood has been refinished and looks perfect.  The steering wheel has been upgraded to a wood and alloy Nardi wheel in perfect condition and the original wheel is included in the sale.  The picnic tables have also been beautifully refinished, and the often-missing footrests are present for the rear seat passengers.  The two rear mirrored vanities were not refinished and have the normal cracking present.  Other than the wood, all of the interior is original and exceptional.

The engine compartment is in concours condition and looks as new.  The venerable 6.75-liter V8 performs beautifully and has benefited from the low mileage and consistent servicing.  The service records are available for review.  The Rolls is complete with its tools, jack, spare and all the owner’s manual supplemental information.

We have this Silver Spur priced well.  The JD Power high retail value is $50,200.  Certainly, this represents one of the nicest in the world.

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. 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…
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.
