What the Seller Says

This Rolls Royce Silver Spirit was first registered on 4th May 1988 with the cherished registration 'EMK 2'. By 1990 the car had been re-registered E591PSG, the 'S' in the plate denoting a Scottish registered keeper who subsequently transferred another cherished plate 'WXT 305' onto the car. It appears to have spent most of its life in Scotland in the ownership of Mr Tom Leddy an engineer and businessman who kept the car for several years until his death in 2015. Another plate change to 'CSC 101' is recorded in 2015. The V5 shows 4 previous keepers from new which is remarkably few for a Rolls Royce of this period. The car was most recently sold by Morris Leslie Classic Auctions in February 2019 for £5830 against an estimate of £5-£6000 and was sold to a Scottish businessman with the registered address being a castle in Aberdeenshire. The condition is best described as an 'oily rag' car and RR enthusiasts will understand exactly what that term means. The car is in sound running condition, with a current MoT but has all of the issues and challenges associated with running a vehicle of this type and age. Its always easy to talk a car of this type up or down so we want to be as clear and honest as possible about what you are bidding on and what you can expect: Good pointsThe car appears complete, structurally sound and we would say it has spent much of its life in a garage, there are invoices in the paperwork for work to and replacement of the arches in 2003 and there are several years of old MoT's with the earliest in 2000 at 69,413 miles. The MoT's then show a small number of miles each year and tie in with the current mileage of 75,600. The car has clearly had a good quality respray at some point in its life and is remarkably free of surface rust with very little corrosion evident in the usual spots like the bulk head, sills, arches and wings. Bad PointsOnly 1 ignition key which is slightly misshapenThere is a fluid leak from the underside of the car which we believe to be brake fluid, the mineral oil warning light is also lit on the dashThe power steering pump or belt is noisy on start up and tick overThe boot latch mechanism is faulty (the handle is missing) and although the boot can be opened it requires attentionWindscreen crack on passenger sideThere is a small area of corrosion at the bottom of the B post which will require further investigation General ObservationsRear tyres appear almost new, the fronts are on the wear indicators but still have the legal minimum depthVeneer in the car is very good apart from a de-laminated area on the rear offside doorThe Everflex roof is badly fitted and requires re-fitting or replacementThe boot area is dry and includes the original tool and bulb kit The starting price is set at £2999, we won't accept offers above or below that amount, even if you offer us £50,000 (unlikely we know) then we will not end the auction early. You have our word, place your bid and the highest bid wins. The car is currently resting indoors awaiting its new owner. We are located in Glossop, Derbyshire and can offer worldwide shipping.
