The Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith was intended to be the brandâs ultimate model during the late 40âs and 50âs. As such, most of the 1,783 chassis delivered in 12 years were fitted with large saloon and limousine bodies. Exceptionally rare were the Silver Wraith cars, even rarer were the Silver Wraith convertible styles cars which could be considered as the ultimate Rolls Royce in the period. Â Our car, the chassis no. LELW94 is one of this ultimate Rolls Royce Silver Wraith.Indeed, the body of our car combines the best of the 30âs design. Furthermore, it is a convertible (with an electric system!). Only five Rolls Royce Silver Wraiths were built to this particular design. Four cars were left-hand-drive for North American customers. Our car, chassis number LELW94 was the second of the only five and the first of the four LHD cars. It was fitted with many options, including automatic transmission and most importantly, power steering which had just become available. The car was sold new in Quebec to Mr. H.J OâConnellâs, for the use of his wife. The car stayed in Canada with its second owner, who restored the car in Florida to its present color combaison. The interior remained o
The Silver Wraith II was the final stage of refinement for the highly successful Silver Shadow long wheelbase saloons. Production officially began for the long wheelbase saloon for the 1969 model year, however, 10 were built as early as 1967. The extended wheelbase increased rear seat passenger legroom. The added inches to the bodyshell was anonymously added to the rear doors to retain the appearance of the standard saloon. The Silver Wraith II was formal and suitable for a chauffeur. It was a masterpiece of hand-built craftsmanship. The Silver Wraith II was built from 1977 until 1980 with a production total of only 2,145 vehicles.

Lowered price €108.000-> €93.950 The Silver Wraith was the first post-war Rolls-Royce model and was made at the Crewe factory from 1946 to 1959. The first cars had a 127 inch (3226 mm) wheelbase chassis based on the one from the pre-war Wraith with coil sprung independent front suspension and semi-elliptic rear with a live axle. The engine was also based on the Wraith, but had a new cylinder head with overhead inlet valves and side exhaust valves and initially a capacity of 4257 cc. From 1951 this was increased to 4566 cc and in 1954 to 4887 cc on the long-wheelbase models. The braking system was a hybrid hydromechanical system with hydraulic front brakes and mechanical rears using the mechanical servo from the pre-war cars, patented by Hispano-Suiza and built by Rolls-Royce under licence. The long, 133 inch (3378 mm), wheelbase chassis was announced in 1951, and 639 were made until 1959. The last short-wheelbase cars were made in 1953. Initially only a four-speed manual gearbox was offered, but this was supplemented by a General Motors automatic option from 1952. This was the last Rolls-Royce model to be delivered in "chassis only" form, in order to receive a wide variety of bespo
