Known History

Rolls Royce Silver Wraith 'Park Ward' Sports Saloon, year 1949. Chassis number WFC62. Colour two-tone light yellow over black. Beige (tan) leather interior with dark beige carpet.

The Rolls Royce Silver Wraith is one of the most desirable post war owner-driver Rolls Royce automobiles. In total 1144 chassis were built and all were 'dressed' with bespoke bodywork by several specialists. This magnificent Silver Wraith was given a beautiful 'Sports Saloon' body work by the renown firm of Park Ward. The automobile shows Park Ward number 45, the last of this specific model built. The automobile comes from a Dutch Wraith collector who cherishes the automobile since the year 1989. In earlier years this fine sports saloon was concours winner at the 1978 Rolls royce Enthusiasts Club meeting and in 1983 participant on a concours d'ÚlÚgance in the USA.

The automobile has been serviced and maintained perfectly, the car is in excellent to superb condition and the history is known and documented. From new this Silver Wraith has driven 140.540 miles. Just over 1000 miles ago (at 139.294 miles) the engine was fully rebuilt, the radiator was overhauled and the clutch has been renewed.

This rare Silver Wraith Park Ward Sports Saloon is one of the 61 cars of this type without the separation window. This clearly expresses the owner-driver status of this Park Ward model.

The automobile features an original and delightfully large sliding roof and the car comes with it's original tools. The only points of note for the next owner-driver: the wooden interior parts may be in need of fresh varnish and. This is a fantastic historic Rolls Royce driver car which performs very satisfactory in every aspect.
