Registration number: 345 YUV
Vintage and Prestige Classic Cars are pleased to offer for sale this 1956 Rolls Royce Silver Wraith by Hooper & Co.
The Silver Wraith was the first post-war Rolls-Royce. It was made from 1946 to 1958 as only a chassis at Rolls-Royce's former Merlin engine plant, their Crewe factory, alongside the shorter Bentley Mark VI.
The Silver Wraith was available as a chassis for coachbuilders but also for the first time could be bought with a Rolls-Royce built standard steel body.
This splendid example was ordered new from Rolls-Royce retailer Rippon Bros Ltd Huddersfield by N. J. Yeadon Esq. of Rawdon in 1955, Chassis ELW51 was delivered to Hooper & Co.Ltd who provide the coachwork that she still wears today. This imposing Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith was then completed the following year on 6th March 1956.
The exterior is finished in an elegant two tone blue, the lines made by Hooper are truly mesmerising and sweep along the entire length, flowing from the front wings and finishing at the end of the wheel spats. A subtle chrome moulding acts as the colour breaker and incorporates the door handles.
The interior is also finished in blue, with leather to the doors and seats, carpet to the floor and a over rug in the rear compartment.
This Silver Wraith comes to us after being laid up in a collection and has benefitted from recent re-commissioning works to get her up to speed and ready for sale.
