Prior to his departure in 1980, Rolls-Royce's charismatic Chairman, Sir David Plastow had been responsible for a series of models, amongst which was the Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit. His firm hand 'on the tiller' combined with the talented pen of Fritz Feller at their in-house styling centre, resulted in the superbly balanced and archetypical Silver Spirit. Unveiled in October 1980 as a replacement for the Silver Shadow, the new car gave the impression of being stretched compared to the dimensions of the previous generation, however, direct comparison showed only small differences. The new models had grown slightly in length and width and height had been cut a little, although the styling was more modern than that of its predecessor. The interior was dominated by the expected combination of fine wood and sumptuous leather, and to Sir David's great pleasure was unmistakeably, a proper Rolls-Royce.This exquisite Silver Spirit was originally supplied by Dutton-Forshaw Rolls-Royce in Preston and, according to its delivery docket, was handed over to its, presumably delighted, first owner on the 18th of September 1984, finished in a striking Balmoral Green Metallic with green piped Champagne Leather and Forest Green carpets.In addition to its Balmoral Green paint (code 9510455) and champagne leather (VM3099), other options from the list included an Everflex roof, Top Roll and Underdash in contrasting hide, Rear Parcel shelf in hide, RR-motifs to the rear quarters and White-Wall Avon tyres.This dignified motor car has been gently used in the hands of its three owners from new, but well looked after' and the Rolls-Royce service book is stamped with a mixture of Rolls-Royce and Bentley dealer service history. Services have been recorded at 3,077 miles, 3,521 miles and 3,867miles all at Mann Egerton Rolls- Royce Leicester, and finally at 6324 miles at Bentley Leicester. The last service in June this year also included a new battery and four original specification Avon White-Wall tyres. The current mileage is 6,690. As you would expect of a Rolls-Royce at this mileage, the car looks in superb condition throughout, with the original twin gold factory fine lines still intact and unmarked bright work, whilst the still fluffy sheepskin rugs, woodwork, carpets and plump Connolly hide, are all as you would hope for and the only slight evidence of use is minor patination on the driver's seat.With the car are the original invoice from Dutton Forshaw Preston for £50,529.85, the Rolls-Royce Enthusiasts Club factory chassis file, the original handbooks, service books, an unopened sachet of the original Hirschmann Ariel cleaner, the UK V5 and a MOT valid until May 2017 issued with no advisories.Rolls-Royce of this era are all too often a bit 'down at heel' having covered a lot of miles and no one would argue that they are cheap to maintain, however, this very special low mileage example appears very hard to fault. Come and have a look yourself.Looking fabulous, in this condition, with this history it's hard to imagine finding better value for money on four wheels.
