Description for Rolls-Royce Other 1938

Up for auction is a 1938 Rolls-Royce Wraith

VIN # WXA 53

492 Produced from 1938-1939

Rippon built only 15 bodieson Wraith chassis

The name Rippon must have a longer association with coachbuilding than any other in the industry, s Walter Rippon built a coach for the Earl of Rutland in 1555 and one for Queen Elizabeth I in 1564. Bodybuilding for motor cars started in 1905 when a two-seater body was mounted on a two-cylinder Rolls-Royce chassis.

As you can see in the pictures this car has great lines and has a different set-up in the rear seating area, nly one jump and the other is a writing table.

It has an electric glass division that separates the driver from the passengers. On each of the rear quarter windows there is a shade that can be pulled forward to give the passengers more privacy. It even has a radio.

The person that owned the car before me owned it since 1953 (I had it about 10 years or so).

I bought the car not running and have made no attempt to start it. There is no key and the ignition is in the off position soI have only put a battery with jumper cablesdirectly to the starter motor and the engine turns freely.

The doors open and close perfectly with great ease.

What you see is what you get, he pictures are big and clear

Email questions and I'll try to answer them

The car is located in Northbrook Illinois 60062

I expect the winning bidder to make a deposit within 48 hours after close of auction and the balance to be paid by the seventh day.
