Our Car

Presented in a faultless “Burgundy” and “Old English White” livery with a “Blue/Grey” leather interior and white wall tyres. The passenger compartment can be isolated from the chauffeur by an electric glass division, it is separately ventilated and has the added luxury of it’s own cocktail cabinet, Champagne cooler, picnic table and radio. Only twelve vehicles of this design were built and it’s possible that there are only two or three surviving examples.

This must be one of the most exclusive and desirable classic cars available and must be seen to be fully appreciated.

General

Few cars of the immediate post-war period have such comfortable touring capability and these large sedans and limousines remain favourites with Rolls-Royce enthusiasts who enjoy long-distance travel.

The Silver Wraith was modernised throughout its production, with an automatic transmission option in 1952, and power steering in 1956. The GM four-speed Hydra-Matic was standardised in 1954. The engine was bored out to 4,566 cc in 1951 and 4,887 cc in 1954, when it generated 178 hp, necessitated by the model’s increase in weight.
