Sold 1985 Rolls Royce Silver Spirit

1985 Rolls Royce Silver Spirit




Hugely satisfying and surprisingly affordable top drawer, first class travel classic, that is quite easy to own.

Rolls offers more refinement, Bentley performance and lets be honest, are there any cheaper, better engineered prestige classics than an old Rolls-Royce?

There’s no denying that a Rolls-Royce is unique where it comes to giving that feeling of well being and satisfaction – an unrivaled sense of occasion. You don’t so much drive but waft around in a Rolls and if you’re used to Jaguars or a big American Classic Cars, then their mass and size won’t phase you the slightest.

As you’d expect, there’s comfort and convenience by the bucket load and when you’re in the mood to cruise, these cars practically drive themselves.


  • Pretty mint - drives beautifully having been recently sold, serviced and maintained by Bruce Mcilroy in Ashburton, New Zealand.
  • Beautiful upholstery in stunning order.
  • Straight,rust free body with original paintwork in excellent condition.
  • NZ NEW - circa 9 owners from new
  • Fully Original Stunning Car
  • Original handbook and various past WOF sheets available with car.

Once hailed as the best cars in the world, the 1980's Silver Spirit offer incredible value for money. An impossible car not to enjoy – a unique motoring experience and after driving a good one you’ll draw the same conclusion. As Charles Rolls aptly put it; “The quality will be remembered long after the price is forgotten”. And that’s the attitude you should adopt when looking for one.

The maxim that you should buy the best car you can afford is sound advice for any classic car, but never more apposite than when looking at something prestigious such as a Rolls-Royce. And even then, you must leave some money over for the unexpected because it is easy to underestimate potential costs of not only repairs but even routine service work.

This is a great example, that will only appreciate in value.

Car will be sold WOF'd and Registered if sold in New Zealand.

At Waimak Classic Cars, our principal interest is to ensure the preservation of classic and vintage vehicles. Please remember that our vehicles are many years old, often with further previous owners. Many have been bought by us recently. We cannot know exactly what repairs or maintenance has been done although we do our best to obtain log books and copies of invoices of work done, when, and by whom.

Our descriptions are based on our own observations and knowledge and we look for the best examples we can find. Indicated mileages are based on the records showing with NZTA and / or the vehicle’s odometer reading. Because of the age of the vehicle, this can never be guaranteed. Our inspections are generally non-invasive. Our description is based on a visual inspection and on information supplied to us by third parties.

Any sale is on the condition that the purchaser relies on his/her own judgment and does not rely on our skill or judgment or on any representation made by us. This applies even if the Buyer has not inspected the vehicle before purchase. We strongly recommend that you have the vehicle inspected by an independent assessor qualified to comment on the particular vehicle’s condition. If you are unable to organise this, then this can be organised on your behalf, at your cost.

We are proud of our reputation. However, no older vehicle can be expected to be as reliable as a new one and so all our vehicles are sold on an as is where is basis. Mechanical breakdowns, electronic failures at inconvenient times and maintenance costs are part and parcel of the ownership of classic and vintage vehicles. Reliability is a combination of the particular vehicle, how it has been driven and maintained, and luck.
