 - A Brief History of the post WWII Silver Wraith -

The Silver Wraith was the first post-war Rolls Royce. It was made from 1946 to 1958 as only a chassis at Rolls-Royce's former Merlin engine plant. their Crewe factory alongside the shorter Bentley Mark VI. The Bentley too was available as a chassis for coach builders but also for the first time could be bought with a Rolls-Royce built standard steel body.

It was announced by Rolls-Royce in April 1946 as the 25/30 hp replacement for the 1939 Wraith in what had been their 20 hp and 20/25 hp market sector. that is to say Rolls-Royce's smaller car. The size was chosen to be in keeping with the mood of post-war austerity. Even very limited production of the chassis of the larger car. their Phantom. was not resumed until 1950 and then. officially. only for Heads of State.

Improvements announced were: chromium-plated cylinder bores for the engine; a new more rigid chassis frame to go with new independent front suspension and a new synchromesh gearbox. Chassis lubrication was now centralized.

The first cars had an entirely new 127 inch (3226 mm) wheelbase chassis which differed considerably from that of the pre-war Wraith and was much nearer rigid. It matched the new Bentley chassis but with an extra 7 inch section added to the centre. The new chassis had coil sprung independent front suspension. which required a very rigid chassis to function properly. and at the rear conventional semi-elliptic springs and live axle. The braking system was a hybrid hydro-mechanical system with hydraulic front brakes and mechanical rears using the mechanical servo similar to that of the pre-war cars.

The last short-wheelbase cars were delivered in November 1953. The long. 133 inch (3378 mm). wheelbase chassis was announced in 1951 and the first delivered in January 1952. 639 were made by the time of the last deliveries in October 1958.
