1980 Rolls Royce Silver Wraith II

Superb Low Mileage 3 Owner Car in Exceptional Condition

This is a superb example of the last production year of the legendary Rolls Royce Silver Shadow & Wraith series. All the problems had been sorted out and the best of the series development was included in this year. This is not a fuel injected car so you are ahead of the game!

I can tell you that this car seems like it drives just like new. It is truly exceptional and shows that it is a 28. 00 original mile car. Every aspect of the car is wonderful. You would need to have the entire Rolls Royce experience of driving and inspecting it to understand why we are pricing this car above most of the other Rolls you typically see on ebay. My feedback for all the cars I have sold is exceptional and can feel secure that the description I am providing is accurate.

We have a lot of documentation for this car. The COMPLETE Owners Book and Documents are provided along with the original ordering sheets. trucking pickup from the factory by Brown Jenks and delivery & inspection information. There are also lots of receipts but none covering the first the years 1984 to 1997 (we suspect the car was serviced properly by the same wealthy owner during that time).

The car was delivered new to Universal Motor Company in Honolulu. HI. The certificate of origin is dated April 30. 1981. The car was first sold to Paraside Palms Vacation Club on Kalakaua Avenue in Honoluu. The early inspection and delivery repairs were done at Universal Motors. In January through April 1982 the car lived in Stateline. NV and we have receipts showing that the car was in Reno. NV and Modern Classic Motors of Reno performed warranty service work. On May 20. 1982 the car's warranty was transferred to Effie Marie Cain of Dallas. TX who appears to be the wife of R. Wolford Cain the co-founder of Southern Union Company.

We have receipts showing Mrs. Cain's as the owner up to August of 1983. We have no records between 1983 and 1998 however we are fairly certain Mrs. Cain owned the car the entire time. A collector in Dallas purchased the car in December 1998 and owned the car until I purchased it November of 2012. We have extensive repair records since 1998.

After we purchased the car we had Ronny's Garage in Santa Ana. CA go over the car. Ronny is a very well known Rolls Royce mechanic and is highly regarded in Rolls Royce Owners Club circles. Ronny inspected the car and found it to be excellent. He rebuilt the accumulators. serviced the air conditionng. fixed the cruise control and repaired a number of other small items. Since then the rear shock absorber upper strut rubber mounting piece has failed so there is an occasional knocking of it when going over large bumps.

Exterior

The exterior was repainted at some time to exceptionally high standards. The paint finish is outstanding and I had the entire car color sanded and deep polished when I acquired it. The Everflex top is essentially perfect and absolutely beautiful. I don't see any evidence of rust under the top but invite a professional inspection. All chrome & stainless is spectacular. All glass and glass sealing pieces are near perfect. Truly the exterior is this car is just outstanding. Click on any exterior photo below and the very large original photo will be loaded. You can then zoom in to see the car in detail.

Interior

The interior is overall in superior condition. All leaher seating is excellent. Door panel & dash leather is also excellent. Carpeting is in near perfect condition as are the soft wool floor overlays. Headliner is in essentially perfect condition. The wood is overall superior but does have some cracks that you can see in our photos. All lights & guages work properly as do all window lifts and the door lock system. The combination of dark blue hides & carpet with the wood is simply spectacular! The interior has no musty spell and is just of fresh leather and wool. luxurious to the senses! Click on any interior photo below and the very large original photo will be loaded. You can then zoom in to see the car in detail.

Mechanical

The mechanics of the car have been fully reviewed and are in excellent condition and work properly. As with any 33 year old car it is advised that you ahve your own inspection performed. I did one just a year ago and am perfectly satisfied that the car is in superior roadworthy condition.

Conclusion

This is the 5th Rolls Royce I have owned. Prior to this I has a 1979 Shadow. 1976 Wraith. 1976 Camargue and a 1965 Phantom V. This is absolutely the nicest driving Rolls Royce I have ever owned. The low mileage. superb mechanical & cosmetic condition all supported by just 29. 00 miles with obvious excellent servicing since new makes this an ideal choice for any Rolls enthusiast or collector.

The clear Montana title is in my name and the car is currently in Orange County. CA. Please do not request to come see the car unless you are a very serious purchaser.
