1978 Rolls Royce Silver Wraith II, California car, left hand drive, long wheelbase, small rear window

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 continental touring. Being a Wraith, this car has the long wheelbase and small rear window and is very rare compared to the Silver Shadow.

We originally sold this car almost two years ago on behalf of the long term owner who bought the car whilst living in California in 2002, later taking the car to Hawaii before finally bringing the car back to his UK home. We sold the car to an Irish gentleman who was hoping to interest his son in classic cars and restoration, however the interest never materialised and the gentleman has now asked us to find a new owner for the car.

Showing just 55,000 miles, the previous owner kept the car for 19 years and covered just 3,000 miles during this time.
We are advised that the car was subject to some "re-commissioning" in 2020, the brake callipers were rebuilt and the flexible hoses were all replaced prior to the car passing it's MOT in May 2020 - the car has covered just 15 miles since ! The car starts with the first touch of the key and we have driven it a short distance, however due to being used so little over recent years the car will certainly need work before being put into use and should therefore be viewed as a restoration project.

Having lived in such warm climates the Shell grey body work and chassis are free from the corrosion which can affect UK cars but the St James red leather upholstery and carpets have been damaged by the sun and will need refurbishment or replacement.

This is a rare Wraith II in need of renovation but with excellent investment potential, any money spent on this car would greatly increase the value.

For sale by agency on behalf of the owner.

Please note, we have not inspected this car and cannot advise on what works are necessary, please view the car as a restoration project.
