1981 Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit

This 2-owner '81 Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit is one beautiful car!  With a rare color combination—magnolia on chocolate brown interior—it turns many heads.   I've owned the car for 19 years and hate to see it go.   This car has always been babied and garage-kept.   In excellent condition. the car comes with only 45. 00 original miles!  You would be hard-pressed to find an '81 Rolls in this good of shape!  Here is a more thorough description of the vehicle:


As you may know most Rolls-Royces tend to be rust-free because of the aluminum body.  That's certainly the case for this car.   To my knowledge the car has never been wrecked.   It has an extremely straight frame.   The body itself is in near mint condition—no dings. dents. or scratches.

The paint is nearly flawless all around.   As you can tell from the photos it is an off white.   I believe the proper term for it is “magnolia. ”  It is a rare color on this style.  

The chrome is in exceptional shape too.   The window trim. bumpers. grill. and mirrors are in near mint condition. The hubcaps are brand new from England.   As one can see from the photos. there is a small place in the “RR” label on the grill that is beginning to peal.   Though not that noticeable. I want to make the buyer aware.        

The glass is in perfect condition. There are no scrapes or scratches—in mint condition all around.

The tires are brand new as well.


The interior is nearly 100% original and in great shape as well.   The front seats have been professionally refurbished (2013) with certified Rolls-Royce leather. The rear seats show some sign of wear. but as you can see from the photos. it's minimal.

The wood is in exceptional shape.   The wooden panels on the doors have been professionally refurbished as well. They look better than new. The burl wood dashboard looks brand new. although some hairline cracks can be identified if examined up close.

The carpeting and headliner is in perfect condition.   I bought all new floor mats a few years ago.

The radio (all original) works and functions extremely well.   It does come with a tape player but does not work perfect the last time I checked.   While all the gauges work. the odometer does not function for some reason.   It could be as simple as a fuse.


The V-8 engine is as solid as they come.   The car has always been meticulously maintained by Rolls-Royce certified mechanics.   All electrical components have recently been fixed and serviced.   The exhaust. ignition. carburetors. and timing belts all run extremely well and smooth.   The AC blows cold.   The catalytic converter probably needs to be replaced as it idles a little too loud for a Rolls-Royce.   Unless otherwise stated. there are no known mechanic issues with the vehicle.


No trades or solicitors.   Only serious offers please.
