Before David Plastow left his senior position at Rolls-Royce following the take-over of Vickers PLC, he had been responsible for a series of models, amongst which was the Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit. The Silver Spirit was unveiled in October 1980 as a replacement for the Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow. The coachwork of the Silver Spirit had been designed at the in-house styling centre by Fritz Feller and gave the impression of being stretched in comparison with the bodies of the previous generation. Direct comparison, however, showed only small differences. The new models had slightly grown in length and width; 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.
This Hearse bodied Silver Spirit was registered on 1st May 1986 and presents unsurprisingly in black coachwork which retains a deep shine with a contrasting blue interior and has a lovely patina as expected from a car of this age. We are informed that the ride is as serene as you would expect. This coachbuilt Rolls-Royce has enjoyed regular servicing and is offered to auction without reserve and accompanied by a V5C registration document and an MoT test certificate valid until May 2024.
