Technical specifications, photos and description:
For Sale a very elegant Rolls Royce Silver Wraith Limousine WITHOUT division.
It has a coachbuilt body by James Young and I believe is one of only 8 made and probably the only one without a division. We have the build sheets from the RREC including those from James Young.
They confirm that the car was originally purchased by Mr H. Needler. Chairman of Hoveringham Gravels and also better known as the longtime Chairman of Hull City Football Club. Originally registered 8888H. It is mentioned in the book of RR Silver Wraiths and there is also a photo of the car abroad at a football match!!!
The car has come direct from a wedding hire firm and was in use until recently. They owned it for 30 years.
Not the usual non running wreck! have lots of old MOTs and the V5.
The car is pre 1960 and now no longer requires an MOT.
It is in good running order but would benefit from some TLC to make it into something very nice indeed!
The drivers door has dropped but all else seems OK. It is sturdy underneath.
You cannot find a such a car for this price. in good condition we would estimate the car to be c £50000.
This is a very worthwhile running car which can be used and enjoyed whilst being improved and increasing in value!!!
The headlining is original and in good condition and so are the carpets. The seats are original and are in acceptable condition (one rear seam has come undone)
The car has the original manual gearchange. It is fitted with the original and desirable kneeling lady mascot.
An excellent car for someone who wants the benefits of an old Rolls Royce and also a good income from it.
We will consider part exchange of Rolls Royce and Bentley only.
Payment of £1000 DEPOSIT at the end of the auction and FULL payment within 3 days of the end of the auction by bank transfer.
We can arrange delivery. please ask for a quote.
Viewing recommended and welcomed by appointment.
