I'm with Panhard here. Folk are judging it harshly on pure presentation. Give a clean and some tyres with air in, and possibly rip the vinyl off and it'd look a zillion times better.



Of course if it looks rusty on the surface, it will be worse underneath! Panels don’t look too bad though. I thought from the photo it had a huge gaping hole in the roof!

I still think that good old Panhard will come out smelling of roses, all it takes is testicles the size of space hoppers to give it a go! :)

Well despite all the comments about how fucked it is this car is actually saveable. Yes it needs a lot of work but it is a Rolls and most of it will come back to life with a bit of effort. I had to jack it up to sort out the o/s tyres and you can even jack it up on the sills without any of that crunching noise you expect with most cars that have been sat in a field for 10 plus years. 3 of the brakes are free and if my experince with the white shadow is anything to go by they will probably free up and just need consumables. The prices of these old girls keep rising and it would probably be worth chucking 10k at it, but not by me.

A good cleaning session alone would probably put a few hundred on that!  Wings look a bit crispy mind and your grass needs watering.

Amazing for what you paid, and far better than the seller's picture suggested. But (for me) its a bit overwhelming. I think the problem with restoring one of these is the fact there are so many parts of it....

Nice lawn you have there. And I particularly like the pic of the Rolls hub cap surrounded by ivy!

How bad actually is the roof? Most of it actually just looks like manky old vinyl and old glue than rot.

I was hoping it would be low mileage but it's on 102,000 the last tax disc is 2002 and there are booking forms for weddings between 1990 and 93. Still no keys and one of the tyres cried enough earlier and exploded so it is now on some 195/60's on the back which look really silly. Thats enough messing with it for now as I have a Land Rover Series 3 to sort brakes out on.

That actually looks very similar to my wedding car (as in the car used at my wedding, not my car that I hire out for weddings although it's an interesting thought).

 

Our wedding car wasn't as fucked as that although the driver did mention that the booking was dependent on passing the MOT which I didn't mention to SWMBO.

 

Would love to see this back on the road but it's in capable hands at least so even if broken the parts will be distributed to help others. Far better than continuing to sit in a field and then getting fragged with no one benefitting.

I though "oh god what was he thinking" when I saw the first pictures, but looking closer that looks an ideal project for someone who's got a dry garage and time.  It's an ideal one to pick away at a bit at a time.  Assuming it's not utterly rotten underneath though, given there are obvious signs of water ingress...does it actually still have floorplans?

 

Echoes of the T25 camper I had...it looked like it had been dredged off the bottom of the North sea, yet I only managed to poke holes in a single chassis outrigger, and despite having sat for eight years it started, drove and stopped just fine.  Thing even braked in a straight line...sadly then my father moved house so I had to pass it on in a hurry.  It was definitely doable, but needed a lot of time spent on it.

 

Dunno...maybe I'm just a real sucker for the whole giving a car a second chance thing...have only scrapped a couple and it still troubles my conscience.

 

Silver Spirit is definitely on my future shopping list (hopefully not too distant given the way prices are going), but given that I'm an abject coward, it will probably be an expensive one from a specialist with documented evidence of all of the cripplingly expensive jobs having been already done.  There's something that just appeals to me about baffling my neighbours by parking a Rolls next to the Lada on the driveway...because it sure as heck won't fit in the garage.

 

That's assuming I don't wind up buying a 70s era coach instead mind you...funny that they suffer from a strangely similar list of potentially exciting ways to bankrupt you if you're not careful.

 

About as difficult to park as each other too...

Looking from the front, with the missing radiator I'm surprised how much that reminds me of a W116 S-Class.

 

That would be great with an MOT.  I'm sure it would sail through no problem.  Hem.

Didn't rolls royce state that the power output was "sufficient" in their marketing blurb?

Original power was 180 bhp. Pretty derisory for a near 7 litre V8 but it was all about torque man! The engine was designed to have loads of torque from very low down the rev range and peak torque occured at just 1600 rpm. The original 6.2 version was just 160 bhp...

 

When RR were trying/needing to get more power from the engine, due to the design of the heads etc it was almost impossible without an expensive re-design as the heads are optimised for this low down oomph, trying to get power (or even more revs - limit is 4500) increased was impossble without some form of forced induction. So, TURBOCHARGER!

 

Incidentally, the crank on all RR V8 engines is a work of art and could take a massive power increase, which is why the engine could go from 160 to 420 hp with the same crank and rods etc. I believe that when VW (spit!)  renewed the engine (due to licencing agreement with BMW coming to an end) the same bottom end went to nearly 550 hp but it cost VW £300 million to update the engine to produce more power and to pass current and future emissions regs. The whole company was only £330 million...

I remember in the 90s Rolls Royce power was always quoted as "sufficient"

Bentley Turbo Rs power was always quoted as "Sufficient+50%"
