When the Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow was released to the public in October 1965, the development departments were showing the result of work carried out over a period of some ten years. The new series was characterised by surprisingly modern features and, with their development, Rolls-Royce broke new ground and away from many sacred design principles. The new models were technically striking in three ways; a monocoque chassis was used, all wheels were sprung independently and four-wheel disc brakes now ensured stopping power of the kind expected in a modern car. Under the bonnet, the V8 engine which had been introduced in the Silver Cloud series was employed. In February 1977, the Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow II was introduced. Outwardly, the models were identifiable by bumpers with rubber inserts and edges made from polyurethane. The Silver Shadow Long Wheelbase was renamed the Silver Wraith in 1976 and a total of 2,135 examples were manufactured. In addition to the additional legroom, the Silver Wraith was identifiable by a smaller rear window, Everflex roof and different wheel covers.
This 1980 Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith II (without division) was purchased by the vendor in 1999 to join his expanding fleet of wedding hire cars. When he acquired the car she had covered 138,843 miles and has only covered an average of 400 miles per year up to 2010 when it was placed in storage only brought out a couple of times and MoT’d. Since 1999 this Silver Wraith II has been regularly maintained by Rolls-Royce specialists Hofmanns of Henley. In 2004/5 the odometer in the speedo stopped working at the current mileage, finished in Midnight Blue with black Everflex roof and cream Connolly hide interior this Rolls-Royce is supplied with a V5C registration document, an MoT test certificate which expires in January 2019 and a file containing the old registration documents, invoices from Hofmanns of Henley and old MoT certificates going back to 1999. The Silver Wraith II is the same as the Silver Shadow with the benefit of the extra leg room to the rear compartment, this delightful Rolls-Royce offers enormous luxury for a modest outlay.
