History of the Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith The first large Rolls-Royce model produced after WWII, the Silver Wraith was introduced in 1946 and was only available as a bare chassis from the factory, allowing the purchaser to choose from one of several notable coachbuilders including Park Ward Ltd, H.J. Mulliner, James Young and Hooper & Co. Standard chassis length was a generous 127 wheelbase and the model was initially powered by a new F-head design 4.3 litre inline-6 cylinder engine. The Silver Wraiths notion as the last mass-produced model available exclusively through a coachbuilder has garnished some to call the model the last true Rolls-Royce! Numerous body arrangements were available, suiting very various types of elite clientele; however the Touring Limousine by Hooper & Co, proved to be one of the most desired variants. Internally known as design 8034, only 69 examples were produced, each with elegant aluminum coachwork to save space. Some models featured a power division window and operable sunroof allowing for fresh air motoring for the chauffer and the passenger(s). Today the Silver Wraith remains one of great classic Rolls-Royce designs; its pre-war appearance with post-war innovation has made the model one of the most desirable to collectors today.
