1953 Rolls Royce Silver Wraith Hooper Empress LHD.

Chassis number: LBLW14
Registration Number: TBA

Off test in the summer of '53. Having completed 60 miles at the M. I. R. A test facility. the car was shipped via the Queen Mary to its first owner: Mrs C. Martha Morse of Highland Avenue. Ithica New York. The car was purchased from the estate of Mrs Morse & made its way to a noted German collection where it was displayed for the last two decades.

The current mileage is 19. 88 which is believed to be the correct mileage covered since new. Certainly the condition of the car would give credence to this. The pale blue leather piped in dark blue as specified by the owner & fitted by Hooper is in magnificent original condition with almost no wear visible. The carpets are in similarly beautiful order with a deep pile blue Astrakahn style rug to the rear. The burr walnut is also in perfect order throughout.

The coachwork is by Hooper & is the epitome of quality with perfect door shuts & delightful body lines; a beautiful example of the Hooper empress line design finished in its original colours. The paintwork appears original to the car & has a few minor reaction type blemishes. but nothing which stands out. The car was specified with electric windows from new. An occasional seat folds out from one side of the bulkhead. In the middle is a cocktail cabinet. To the other side is a very large fold out writing table.

The car is currently having a full service with us to put it into tip top order. Upon collection the car started instantly & drove 2 miles to the waiting truck beautifully. The chassis is a long wheel base example & the car is fitted with the 4. 6 litre straight six engine linked to an automatic gear box. Being an export model the car is Left Hand Drive.
