1987 Rolls Royce Silver Spirit 6.75 petrol from Australia and New Zealand
Great car, requires sustained, undivided commitment over time
All windows jammed.
Warm starting issues.
Rough ride over bumps.
Power steering pump.
This car, like many of these older cars was left in a garage for many years. He just gave up with the overwhelming list of service issues.
The car drives well, and I'm learning about these issues by driving the car.
It was taken through the car wash 1,000 times; I'm sure as there are scratches all over it. The paint is in a moderate condition. Interior fantastic, but had a shocking musty smell and had spider webs and mould inside.
Have spent approximately $5,000 on the first service and now finding a host of issues to be addressed. One project after the other needs to be addressed over a long period of time. These cars are all the same, with all the same issues.
This is my 3rd Rolls/Bentley. Have waited 25 years for this and I needed this time to get over the last one, which was a money pit. Not only that, but most of these cars are beyond saving, they only look nice.
Being in a car club is important because it's all about the duration. The car is not in the same ball park as any other car, it's better than anything and everything. Only special people own these. Once a person owns one, they can never truly be satisfied with any other car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
