CAR SPECIFICS

Silver Wraith II 4-door saloon.North Americaleft hand drive.A very rare model of a Silver Wraith II. Manufactured in mid-December, 1980 in Crewe, Cheshire, England. The lowest chassis number on the entire production of the Rolls Royce Silver Wraith II model was 30083 (January, 1977). The highest chassis number produced was 41648 (late December, 1980). The V.I.N. # on this car is LRL-41641. This number indicates that of the 2,132 (or so) motorcars produced of this model by Rolls Royce during this period,only SEVENadditional Silver Wraith II's were manufactured AFTER this car, making this is one of the very last of it’s kind ever built. As a result, the car incorporates all of the small design improvements developed by Rolls Royce up to this period, and prior to the discontinuation of this model up to the end of 1980. This car truly is “the best of the last”!

Extended wheelbase version of the popular Silver Shadow II.Car length: 207.5” (17’ 3”). Width 71”. Height: 59.75” (4’ 11 ¾”). Wheelbase: 124” (10’ 4”).The Silver Wraith II was considered the top-of-the-line for Rolls-Royce during this time.Exterior color is porcelain white with Blue piping along chrome strip.Inside door sills and jams are clean and tidy, and have been retouched by owner.Back seating area is 4” longer than the non-long wheel based model, providing a noticeable increase in rear passenger space and comfort. Used by current owner as a bridal and wedding car the last 4 seasons.Stored in a heated climate controlledall brick facility with full concrete floor, (with car coveredwhen not in use). Freed from the perils of harsh weather and snow. Under carriage is very clean! Seems to have been well maintained and serviced by owners (3). Owner #1 was from Texas. Owner #2 from Florida. Owner #3 is seller. Wraith II comes with its original jack, and owner’s operating manual.This Wraith has a rich and complementary Navy blue leather interior. Light ‘amber’ burled walnut wood paneling are original and have never been redone,and displays a lovely grain throughout. The wood presents nicely on the back doors, and looks like new. Front diver side door has part of the veneer on far right side broken off (though we have the pieces). Front passenger door wood has a small crack on left side, otherwise great condition. We do not, however, think it warrants redoing but this is subjective.

EXTERIOR:White Everflex vinyl top(exclusive to Silver Wraith II’s), presents well but with some age blemishes across the top of the front windscreen, and 1 roof blemish.With hand-painted fine lines to the waist-rails finished in contrasting Blue to match car interior color.All glass, chrome and bright work are excellent. Mid-tinted windows all round giving her a very formal look.Small rear ‘opera window’, and Corniche wheel covers.All lights, instruments, features and functions are in working order,with all bulbs and lamps replaced and operating as they should.Power antenna and interior clock not in working order (wiring for both needs checking). The body is straight and the paint is shiny and lustrous (as you can see from the attached pictures). Overall shiny and crisp and presents very nicely, certainly well above average for a motorcar closing in on 40 years of age! To best of seller’s knowledge, this car was never winter driven, so no salt corrosion.Rack-and-Pinion power steering. Disk brakes. Brake pumps, accumulators, valves calipers and pads have been fully inspected.Brake hoses & lines have been replaced with new on back wheels, system pressure tested and bled.The whitewall Tempa Esquire AS 75-R15 radial tyres are in very good condition with plenty of tread. Shiny, aluminum hub caps are same as used on Corniche, and are excellent with no dents or imperfections. The “slow window” syndrome, typical of the model have been repaired with new chains on left side, with window motors cleaned and oiled.

INTERIOR:The leather seating is in excellent condition without any notable marks or blemishes or tears. Finished in Wedgewood Blue throughout, including carpets and over rugs. The original dash is very good but with top sun damage, now covered with a matching Navy blue dash cover to prevent additional erosion from sun. The rear window parcel shelf has been replaced and is new. Head lining (mid-beige) is original and in super clean condition with no water staining or marks. Ashtrays present in “never used” condition.Non-smoking car. The odometer shows a little under 20,000 miles (not kilometers), and, although not verifiable with actual paperwork, it is apparent by the overall condition of the car that it is commensurate with the car’s condition. During its 37+ year life span, the car was driven LESS than 45 miles per month! Original Blaupunkt push button radio. Wood interior back window trim normally found on these cars, needs replaced. Power front drivers and passenger seats, windows, door locks all in working order.Comes with original owner’s operating manual included, along with all repair and parts receipts in place on any work commissioned under current owner.

ENGINE COMPARTMENTRear wheel drive. Engine: 6.75 Rolls Royce V-8. 3-speed automatic. Stability control, self levelling all-independent suspension.
