ROLLS ROYCE SILVER WRAITH TOURING LIMOUSINEThis particular Silver Wraith previously belonged to Jimmy Chipperfield of the eponymous circus-owning dynasty. Copies of factory records on file reveal that chassis number 'WVH110' was originally promised for delivery via Hooper & Co in November 1953 to one A Webber Esq. It is noted on the 'Complete Car Test' report that the Wraith was to have an 'old body mounted on new chassis'.  body in question being transferred from 'WLE27'. It appears that Mr Webber never took delivery. as the chassis cards record James S M Chipperfield of Down Farm. Stockbridge. Hampshire as first owner (from 13th August 1954). Special features listed include automatic transmission. the short wheelbase and the new stepped pattern petrol tank. The car was registered 'OLD 8'. Not long after taking delivery of his Silver Wraith. Jimmy Chipperfield quit the family business (in 1955) and after a period spent training animals for the movie industry. pioneered the development of drive-through safari parks in the UK. the first of which - the Lions of Longleat - opened in 1966. A photograph on file dating from this period depicts the Rolls-Royce with two tiger cubs and their attendants.  Jimmy Chipperfield kept the Wraith until 1958 and in September 1959. having passed through the hands of Harold Radford Ltd and Hoffmans of Sheffield. it became the property of Sheffield-based Alpolain Industries Ltd. Its accompanying original logbook lists the car's next private owner as Mr Basil Victor Martin of Bedford Square. London WC1. to whom it was registered on 15th May 1962 (see H R Owen's bill of sale on file). From then until 2011 the Silver Wraith remained in the Martin family's ownership and there are many expired MoT certificates and tax discs on file from this period.  Restored at date unknown. 'OLD 8' has recently been re-commissioned following years of storage. All the brightwork has been re-chromed to an excellent standard and we are advised that the car runs perfectly and drives very well. the engine registering healthy oil pressure. A handsome motor car with well documented history. ecently serviced and mot d Taxed to the end of 2014. /span>
