|Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith, a dignified ‘calming influence’|
Majestic, regal, dignified and built with unparalleled perfection in mind, right down to the tiniest details. This is what characterises a Rolls-Royce. This marque represents everything that might make life more pleasant and comfortable. The same applies to this Silver Wraith, the first post-war production model.
During the post-war period, Rolls-Royce still manufactured rolling chassis that were fitted with bodywork by coachwork makers according to client specifications. The Silver Wraith was the last Rolls-Royce that could, as a result of this method, be fitted with various styles of coachwork.
With its 1950 vintage, this Silver Wraith belonged to the first series that was fitted with the quiet-as-a-whisper 4.2 litre, six-cylinder inline engine. This isn’t a fast car, but is instead a phenomenal ‘calming influence’ that suggests idyllic picnics and slow sightseeing trips. Wherever it goes, bystanders will ensure a regal reception. Guaranteed.
Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith with James Young body – 1950 in detail
This Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith was built in 1950. Its coachwork was designed and manufactured by specialist James Young, one of the renowned coachbuilders from the time when Rolls-Royce only manufactured rolling chassis. These were then provided with coachwork according to client specifications.
The chassis number of this stunning specimen is WFC 80 and was delivered new to Dr E. Fletcher in England. Later, the ‘James Young’ was exported to the United States. In 2001, the Rolls-Royce returned to Europe when it was imported by its new Dutch owner.
Between 2002 and 2005, the Silver Wraith underwent full restoration. More than € 200,000 was invested in the car during this process. Since it was restored, the car has been rarely used, meaning that it’s still in sublime condition.
This Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith has been put up for sale by its present owner due to changes to his classic car collection.
