Description Historic 1980 Rolls Royce Silver Wraith II - left hand drive 4-door limousine


line-height:normal">CAR SPECIFICS

Wraith II 4-door saloon. North America left hand drive. A very rare
model of a Silver Wraith II. Manufactured in mid-December, 1980 in Crewe,
Cheshire, England. The lowest chassis number on the entire production of the
Rolls Royce Silver Wraith II model was 30083 (January, 1977). The highest
chassis number produced was 41648 (late December, 1980). The V.I.N. # on this
car is LRL-41641. This number indicates that of the 2,132 (or so) motorcars
produced of this model by Rolls Royce during this period, only SEVEN additional
Silver Wraith II's were manufactured AFTER this car, making this is one of the
very last of it’s kind ever built. As a result, the car incorporates all of the
small design improvements developed by Rolls Royce up to this period, and prior
to the discontinuation of this model up to the end of 1980. This car truly is
“the best of the last”!

line-height:normal">Extended wheelbase version
of the popular Silver Shadow II. Car length: 207.5” (17’ 3”). Width 71”.
Height: 59.75” (4’ 11 ¾”). Wheelbase: 124” (10’ 4”). The Silver Wraith II
was considered the top-of-the-line for Rolls-Royce during this time. Exterior color is
porcelain white with Blue piping along chrome strip. Inside
door sills and jams are clean and tidy, and have been retouched by owner. Back
seating area is 4” longer than the non-long wheel based model, providing a
noticeable increase in rear passenger space and comfort. Used by current owner
as a bridal and wedding car the last 4 seasons. Stored in a heated climate
controlled all brick facility with full concrete floor, (with car
covered when
not in use). This car is absolutely spotless both inside and out! Freed from the perils of harsh weather and snow. Under
carriage is very clean! Seems to have been well maintained and serviced by
owners (3). Owner #1 was from Texas. Owner #2 from Florida. Owner #3 is seller.
Wraith II comes with its original jack, and owner’s operating manual. This Wraith has a
rich and complementary Navy blue leather interior. Light ‘amber’ burled walnut
wood paneling are original and have never been redone, and displays
a lovely grain throughout. The wood presents nicely on the back doors, and
looks like new. Front diver side door has part of the veneer on far right side
broken off (though we have the pieces). Front passenger door wood has a small
crack on left side, otherwise great condition. We do not, however, think it
warrants redoing but this is subjective.

line-height:normal">EXTERIOR: White Everflex vinyl top (exclusive to Silver Wraith
II’s), presents well but with some age blemishes across the top of the front
windscreen, and 1 roof blemish. With
hand-painted fine lines to the waist-rails finished in contrasting Blue to
match car interior color. All glass, chrome and bright work are excellent.
Mid-tinted windows all round giving her a very formal look. Small rear ‘opera
window’, and Corniche wheel covers. All lights, instruments,
features and functions are in working order, with
all bulbs and lamps replaced and operating as they should. Power
antenna, clock, radio not in working order (simple re-wiring issues). The body is straight and the paint is bright and
lustrous (as you can see from the attached pictures). Overall shiny and crisp
and presents very nicely, certainly well above average for a motorcar closing
in on 40 years of age! To best of seller’s knowledge, this car was never winter
driven, so no salt corrosion. Rack-and-Pinion power steering. Disk brakes, brake
pumps, accumulators, valves calipers and pads have been fully
inspected and replaced where needed. Brake hoses & lines have been replaced with new on back
wheels, system pressure tested and bled. The whitewall Tempa Esquire AS
75-R15 radial tyres are in very good condition with plenty of tread. Bright, shiny aluminum hub caps are same as used on Corniche, and are excellent
with no dents or imperfections. The “slow window” syndrome, typical of the
model have been repaired with new chains on left side, with window motors
cleaned and oiled.

line-height:normal">INTERIOR: The leather seating is in excellent condition without any
notable marks or blemishes or tears. Finished in Wedgewood Blue throughout,
including carpets and over rugs.  The original dash is good with top sun
damage, now covered with a matching Navy blue cover to prevent additional
erosion from sun. The rear window parcel shelf has been replaced and is new.
Head lining (mid-beige) is original and in super clean condition with no water
staining or marks. Ashtrays present in “never used”
condition. Non-smoking car. The odometer shows a little under
20,000 miles (not kilometers), and, although not verifiable with actual
paperwork, it is apparent by the overall condition of the car that it is
commensurate with the car’s condition. During its 37+ year life span, the car
was driven LESS than 45 miles per month! Original Blaupunkt push button radio.
Wood interior back window trim normally found on these cars, needs replaced.
Power front drivers and passenger seats, windows, door locks all in working
order. Comes
with original owner’s operating manual included, along with all repair and
parts receipts in place on any work commissioned under current owner. 

line-height:normal">ENGINE COMPARTMENT Rear
wheel drive. Engine: 6.75 Rolls Royce V-8. 3-speed automatic. Stability
control, self levelling all-independent suspension. Non-fuel injection (2 SU
carbs). Under
the hood, the presentation has not been precision detailed but simply kept
clean and tidy throughout its life. Brake and hydraulics
reservoir has been taken apart, thoroughly cleaned, with fluids replaced with
original RR-363 brake fluid. New replaced oil filter. New fuel pump &
filter. New diehard commercial battery. Climate control has been fully
inspected (have receipts) with complete A/C unit, compressor and custom made
