1947 ROLLS ROYCE SILVER WRAITH MULLINER SEDANCA DEVILLE
  PRICE: INQUIRE
















1947 Rolls Royce Silver Wraith
Mulliner Sedanca de Ville
Chassis no. WZB28 - Engine no. W27B
This right-hand drive Silver Wraith was delivered new to a customer in New York early in 1948 and was, therefore, never registered in the UK until imported in 2000. The car was acquired in 1988 when the previous owners were living in the USA. The car was personally restored by the previous owners in the 1990's, calling on professional help with paintwork, trim and restoration of interior woodwork which was all re-veneered. This was a body-off project and nothing was left untouched (except the gearbox, which was about the only part that worked) right down to the powder coating of the bare chassis. All of the work is fully documented with photos and video. Since completion, the car has only been driven any distance on the road once, in 1999 for the RROC regional concours in Chicago where it was awarded "Best of Show" out of about 100 Rolls-Royces and Bentleys. As might be expected after such an extensive rebuild, the car starts and runs well, the engine smooth, powerful and running like the proverbial Swiss watch. Indeed, the whole vehicle is just like new and can be expected to provide many years of reliable and enjoyable driving. It is also highly usable under modern driving conditions, being quite swift and responsive. For safety reasons, turn signals have been incorporated in the running lights, though the original trafficators are still in place and operational. In short: everything works as should. A wonderfully majestic vehicle of great presence and proven concours winning potential, the car is presented in excellent condition in every respect and comes with an original leather suitcase, tailored dust cover, fully restored tool kit, original and re-print handbooks, parts list and workshop manual.
