In April 1946 the first post-war model from Rolls-Royce was
revealed to the public: the Silver Wraith. Following their
pre-war tradition of manufacturing a rolling-chassis only. br/>Rolls-Royce delivered these cars to be bodied by independent
coachbuilders. Enjoying a seven-inch longer wheelbase than its
Bentley Mk. VI sibling. the newcomer was based around a massive. br/>box-section chassis equipped with independent front suspension. br/>hydraulic shock absorbers (adjustable to the rear) and four-wheel
drum brakes. a smooth 4257cc six-cylinder engine allied
to four-speed manual transmission. the model appealed to both
owner-drivers and passengers alike. The Silver Wraith outlived the
Mk. VI and in fact survived until 1959 having been modernised step
by step with vital improvements like automatic gearbox becoming an
option in 1952 and power assisted steering in 1956. An engine bored
out to 4. 66cc had been phased in 1951 and in 1954 capacity was
increased to 4. 87cc. The Silver Wraith was the last Rolls-Royce
model to show a vast variety of coachwork styles.

Originally registered on 1st March 1956 to Mr. N. J. Yeadon this
splendid Silver Wraith Limousine has been owned within the same
family for the last 34 years. Coachbuilt by Hooper & Co
and present in good allround condition. this Rolls-Royce has been
used very little in recent years and due to lack of suitable
storage facilities. the vendor has decided it is time for a new
owner to enjoy this stylish. yet practical limousine. Finished in
two-tone blue and black and complemented by blue leather trim. this
Silver Wraith represents an opportunity to own a piece of British
motoring history.

Interested parties please note. the registration number of 4 PL is
not supplied with the vehicle.
