1956 Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith Limousine by Hooper For Sale by Auction

For sale by auction on Saturday 30th November 2013 with Historics at Brooklands, Mercedes-Benz World, Weybridge, Surrey. Chassis Number ELW.51 Engine Number L.50E Odometer reading 24,110 miles Estimate 50,000 - 60,000 In April 1946 the first post-war model from Rolls-Royce was revealed to the public: the Silver Wraith. Following their pre-war tradition of manufacturing a rolling-chassis only, Rolls-Royce delivered these cars to be bodied by independent coachbuilders. Enjoying a seven-inch longer wheelbase than its Bentley Mk. VI sibling, the newcomer was based around a massive, box-section chassis equipped with independent front suspension, hydraulic shock absorbers (adjustable to the rear) and four-wheel drum brakes. Powered by a smooth 4257cc six-cylinder engine allied to four-speed manual transmission, the model appealed to both owner-drivers and passengers alike. The Silver Wraith outlived the Mk. VI and in fact survived until 1959 having been modernised step by step with vital improvements like automatic gearbox becoming an option in 1952 and power assisted steering in 1956. An engine bored out to 4,566cc had been phased in 1951 and in 1954 capacity was increased to 4,887cc. The Silver Wraith was the last Rolls-Royce model to show a vast variety of coachwork styles. Originally registered on 1st March 1956 to Mr. N. J. Yeadon this splendid Silver Wraith Limousine has been owned within the same family for the last 34 years. Coachbuilt by Hooper & Co and present in good allround condition, this Rolls-Royce has been used very little in recent years and due to lack of suitable storage facilities, the vendor has decided it is time for a new owner to enjoy this stylish, yet practical limousine. Finished in two-tone blue and black and complemented by blue leather trim, this Silver Wraith represents an opportunity to own a piece of British motoring history. Interested parties please note, the registration number of 4 PL is not supplied with the vehicle.
