The Silver Spur was the long wheelbase version of the Silver Spirit, both making their debut in 1980. The Silver Spur would continue through the 80s, while the Silver Spur II made its debut at the 1989 Frankfort Auto Show. This is a well-maintained 1991 Rolls Royce Silver Spur II, long wheel base.  The Silver Spur is 4" longer than a standard Silver Spirit Saloon and was quite a bit more expensive than its shorter sibling. This is a driven and cared for example with less than 70,000 miles on the odometer.  As always, we would like to thank the Dallas Love Field Frontiers of Flight Museum for their historical background used in many of our photos. Be sure and visit the historic Flight Museum if you find yourself in Dallas, Texas. 

One interesting aspect of this particular Silver Spur II is that it was ordered without the Everflex roof. This is excellent because this car does not suffer the typical corrosion issues the Everflex roof presents. The black base/clearcoat finish shows well with some light scratches and chips. The body is straight and true. This car would benefit greatly from a professional polish, seal and wax. The brightwork is beautiful throughout.  The Spirit of Ecstasy Ornament stands proud. People will think you spent a small fortune to acquire this automobile, when in reality it is value priced at a mere fraction of the original cost. The special hydraulic ride system and fully independent suspension give this car a smooth road feel. Open the doors to supreme luxury and timeless elegance. 

The interior showcases original Connolly leather front to back, showing minimum wear, not perfect. The coloration is a parchment with contrasting black piping. You can see the creases in the leather from age and use. The burl wood is just stunning throughout the interior. The leather-bound steering wheel was a new feature of the Silver Spur II introduced in 1990 along with an electronic gear selection display and a sophisticated automatic ride control system.  The gauges are functional. The stereo head unit has been upgraded with an Alpine AM/FM CD head unit.  The back seat is lavish for passenger(s) We have the original Lambs Wool over rugs as well as the foot rests.  The picnic tables are in beautiful condition. There are also vanity mirrors and full lighting. 

This is a personal luxury jet for the highway.  The original identification plates are intact and legible. These cars are built with great love and pride.  When inspect the doors, take in the hand-laden leather & wood and feel the heft of the full insulated and steel-reinforced doors. You know this is a Rolls Royce. The door undersides are also solid and intact.  Under the bonnet is the quiet and powerful 6.75 litre Rolls Royce fuel-injected V8 engine. Interestingly, Rolls Royce did not offer a power rating on this powerplant, however it is smooth and pulls the considerable heft of this hand-built automobile with authority. 

The engine is in very good, maintained mechanical condition as is the transmission. The engine compartment features factory components throughout, decals and markings intact. The underhood insulation is also clean and in good condition, a testament to this particular Rolls Royce' life.  The trunk is in good condition as well. Here are close-ups of any significant paint defects found, there are some road chips and light scratches.  The undercarriage is in very good condition. There is a mounted spare underneath. The flooring and framework appear very solid front to back. This has been a garage-kept example and it is reflected in its structural condition.
