1978 Rolls Royce Silver
Wraith II, Left Hand Drive, 55,000 miles only, small rear window
An excellent low mileage, low ownership car which we have taken in part exchange from the
long term owner who bought the car whilst living in California in 2002.
The gentleman later moved to Hawaii, taking the car with him, before
eventually moving back to the Uk. Originally supplied by
Riviera Rolls Royce in Los Angeles to the World Oil Co. in November 1978,
the car was built in August 1978 to the original purchasers specifications
and is of course left hand drive making it ideal for central London or
The car has covered just
55,000 miles and is in a good, usable condition throughout. Used only
occasionally for high days and holidays the car has covered just 3,000
miles during the last owner's 17 year tenure. We are advised by the vendor
that the car was recently taken out of storage and "re-commissioned" prior
to trading the car in to us in exchange for a Bentley Continental GT. On
arrival at our premises we fitted a new battery and the car started with
the first touch of the key and behaved perfectly on test drive. The engine oil
and engine coolant certainly appear fresh indicating a recent service so
we have no reason to doubt the vendors claims. Together with the vehicle
we have an A4 binder containing a great deal of paperwork pertaining to
the vehicle including service invoices, old MOT's, old purchase invoice,
original 1978 order form etc.
Finished in Shell Grey, the
paintwork presents very nicely and the interior finished in St James Red
shows a nice patina. The rear
compartment is fitted with vanity mirrors, passenger picnic table and the
smaller rear window. The woodwork presents very nicely and indeed there is
an invoice in the history folder relating to re-finishing of the veneers.
includes electric seats, split level climate
control air conditioning, cruise control, electric
windows, central locking, original
radio with a more modern unit fitted beneath, fog lamps, headlamp wash wipe,
fairly fresh whitewall tyres all round etc.
The car will be supplied
with a new MOT with no advisory notices.
This is a rare long
wheelbase Wraith II with low mileage and low ownership which presents very
well and is perfectly usable but could be improved by an enthusiastic
owner. Values of these cars are currently climbing and any work done to
improve this car will be reflected in an increased value, very good
examples are currently commanding in excess of £25,000 so this car is
priced very sensibly.
