1947 Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith Convertible Victoria by Inskip Chassis No. WZB36 Engine No. W36B One of only two built This car was displayed at the world famous New York Auto Show in 1949. The Silver Wraith was the first postwar Rolls-Royce model made at the Crewe factory from 1946 to 1959. This is one of two convertible Victoria's designed and built by J.S. Inskip coachwork. It was by far their most flamboyant design on a Silver Wraith. After being shown at the New York Auto Show the car was sold to its first owner, Lawrence S. Donaldson in January of 1951. This car was owned for many years by the well known collector Andrew Darling of Minnesota. The car has gone through an elaborate cosmetic restoration in 2007 /08.
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.

Lowered price €108.000-> €97.950 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
