1954 Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith Long Wheelbase Touring Saloon

This 1954 Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith Long Wheelbase Touring Saloon is a factory Left-Hand Drive example wearing an older restoration. Grey with tan leather interior. The Rolls was recently started and run but its use over the ensuing two decades has been modest if at all, with the result that it will require recommissioning and careful attention before returning the car to road use. The car's aesthetics have certainly aged, and while it must have been refurbished from its original black to the two-tone grey it wears today, this work is now considerably well worn. 

There can be few more stately automobiles than a 1950s Rolls-Royce with H.J. Mulliner coachwork, such as this elegant rendition by the coachbuilder on a Long Wheelbase Silver Wraith. The majestic car began its life in just the style that such an automobile should, being delivered new to the famed Hotel Georges V in Paris, for one of its residents, F. Dupre. Of course, being a Parisian delivery, it was handled by Franco Britannic Automobiles who took the order in December 1953 and fulfilled it in March 1954. The car was supplied in Mason's Black paintwork, with beige leather and cloth interiors. A whole host of extras are listed on the factory records including: Radio, Extension speaker, 2 Foglamps, Bonnet (hood) fastening from the interior, export bumpers, tables altered to form pockets, mohair rug, 8 day clock to rear compartment, Continental chassis plate, speedometer in kilos, standard and high frequency horns, and a small type front number (license) plate support. Beyond these original details, we are not sure how where the car resided in the rest of the century, however, it is believed that it spent some time in Switzerland in the late 1990s. In February 2002, the car returned to the UK, to pass through one of the foremost London dealers of Rolls-Royce and Bentley motorcars, Frank Dale & Stepsons, then under the careful stewardship of the late Ivor Gordon and James Crickmay, to the previous owner. A supremely elegant example that warrants sympathetic attention.
