For Sale: 1983 Rolls-Royce Silver Spur in Carey, Illinois


Vehicle Description

Here is a really stunning looking Rolls-Royce Silver Spur finished in not often seen Exeter Blue (non-metallic) with Magnolia (light tan) leather interior with navy blue piping on the seats. The twin fine lines to the waist-rails are hand-painted in cream to match the interior. The Exeter blue takes on a dramatic effect in strong sunlight but in evening and subdued light, transforms to a very formal quasi black hue. Very nice indeed. The Rolls-Royce Silver Spur is powered by a 6.75 litre Rolls-Royce designed and built V8 engine with the Bosch fuel injection system which provides ultra smooth touring. The Silver Spur has the uniqueness of being 4" longer providing more rear seat passenger space. It also has the rear seat picnic tables. This example is very original in every detail - with the exception of an aftermarket radio installed (which can easily be changed back to factory if so desired). This one is a very clean example from Texas its whole life. She was regularly maintained by an elderly gentleman who used it for his personal transport (Chauffered) on a regular basis. It has recently been thru Park-Ward's workshop and anything requiring doing was attended to including all the hydraulics and braking system inspected and overhauled as required (pumps, accumulators, gas springs, etc). Mechanically, this car needs nothing. Under the bonnet, the presentation is very clean. It has not been precision detailed but simply kept clean and tidy throughout its life. Mileage is 124,000 but one needs not to be put-off by this given its regular and attentive maintenance. The car sports a near new set of Hankook whitewall tyres on original Rolls-Royce steel wheels with stainless steel hub caps. The body of the car is straight and the paint deep in lustre and consistency. It was repainted some 10 years ago in its original colour. It does have some minor blemishes and marks but these are few and only show if one looks hard. Otherwise it is very shiny without any fading, dents or dings. There is an indentation at the right rear door handle and we are happy to repair this for the new owner. Rubbers, mouldings, badges and external fittings are all in good condition. The interior on this car is very nice and original in presentation. The leather shows beautifully with the contrasting dark blue piping. The front seat cushions have been reupholstered at some stage and were done extremely well to be virtually undetectable. They are super supple and soft. All the interior wood was redone by Park-Ward and presents stunningly without a single blemish or flaw. Normally they develop small hairline cracks in the clear lacquer - there is none of this and so the wood is rich in gloss and flat-smooth like glass. Carpets, seats, dash, rear parcel shelf, fixtures and fittings are truly excellent and I best encourage you to look at all the photos to fully appreciate how nicely the interior presents. Other factory fitted features to the car are nicely contrasting lambswool floor rugs in dark blue which look and feel divine. As part of Park-Ward's maintenance program, all major electricals and features & functions have been inspected so everything is operating as it should; windows, mirrors, A/C, heater, lights, wipers, etc. This is a true, "take the keys and drive" example with no additional budget needed to attend to any nuances or gremlins. It is tight to drive, brakes strong and rides as a Rolls-Royce should. The car is of very high standard and is an easy 10 out of 10 driver rating. She is a very pretty example of the early Spur model with few, in this fine condition, remaining these days.
