Rolls Royce 1980 – SOLD £8745

Rolls Royce 1980.

This car was purchased by the previous owner in 2008. At that stage the car was in very good condition and cost him €20,000. He used it for a couple of years clocking up nearly 5000 miles before the car was parked up due to the economic situation in Ireland.After charging the battery and putting in some fresh fuel, the car started without hesitation instantly pressurising the hydraulics. A  test drive showed the engine, gearbox, brakes, suspension and steering all to be in serviceable condition. However to recommission for the road,  the car will require 4 new tyres and repalcement rear wheel bearing. Also handbrake not working and a/c needs a regass.Mileage on clock reads 47000.
