1994 Rolls-Royce Silver Spur
One European's experience at Bonneville's famous SpeedWeek.
Through the SEMA Technology Initiative, Ford was able to collaborate with several of those companies to produce a low-volume niche vehicle. Ewing had the design, SEMA had the suppliers and soon, the GTX1 was born.
Classic Car Overview
This is what is known as a 50,000 series SZ so it has many upgrades over the earlier cars. The Silver Spirit III and Silver Spur III were introduced in late 1993, featuring engine improvements and some cosmetic updates. A new design of intake manifold and cylinder heads increased power output. The parameters of the semi-active suspension system were improved, noticeably impacting ride quality. Dual airbags were introduced inside, along with independent adjustment of the rear seats.
Total production of the Silver Spur III was only 465 cars over the models 2 year span. It was the smallest production run of the entire SZ Silver Spur series commencing in 1981 and concluding in 2000 from the initial series Silver Spur, then the Silver Spur II, the Silver Spur III and the final series Silver Spur (informally referred to as the Silver Spur IV)
This example has travelled a modest 75,000 miles and yet looks like she has travelled half that distance. She is very clean and crisp. Originally from Florida then mostly Kansas after that so she is scale and rust free.
She features the final series Silver Spur 16 wheels which are a wonderful, and very expensive addition. These are a factory and genuine Rolls-Royce alloy wheel.
The body of the car is very straight and the paint in excellent condition. It appears to be mostly original and is consistent and very deep in lustre and shine. There are hardly any notable chips and marks other than very minor ones here and there but these are few and only show if one looks hard. Otherwise it is very shiny without any fading, dents or dings. Rubbers, mouldings, badges and external fittings are all in excellent condition.
The interior of this car is stunning. The Connolly leather shows beautifully and is completely original. It remains very soft and supple without any signs of the most ordinary wear. The delicious Magnolia Connolly leather highlighted by the richer tan piping and tan dash top-roll is truly exquisite.
The wood throughout is excellent including the rear seat passenger picnic table. The only exception being the top section of the front passenger door which shows some hairline cracks. These hairlines are not present in the beautiful burl walnut inlay fascia but just the top rail. This is not a difficult repair for us, so let us know if you wish us to refinish this prior to delivery (Park-Ward Motors is Americas leading Rolls-Royce wood refinisher). And, of course, the 50,000 series cars have the additional beautiful teak in-lay. The way it outlines all the wood sections, especially on the main dash incorporating the centre top-console is nothing short of delightful and done in such a way that is truly in tune with the best of wood-working craftsmanship.
Carpets, seats, dash, front top-roll, rear parcel shelf and fixtures are truly excellent and I best encourage you to look at all the photos to fully appreciate how nicely the interior presents. The mouton overlays are in good condition, albeit showing a bit of sun-fade as they often do.
As part of Park-Wards Predelivery Commissioning program, which we do to all our cars, all mechanicals are gone through and whatever work required, is attended to. This includes the complex hydraulic system where we make sure all maintenance is up to date and all major & minor services completed.
