Description for Rolls-Royce Wraith 1954

Hello to all eBayers!I have been with eBay for several years and I want to keep my reputation here 100% positive. I am a private collector, who has endless passion for classic cars and trucks. 90% of the vehicles have been rented out to movies commercials or high-class parties. Right now, I’m liquidating my collection since I’m selling my warehouse. Are you an old vehicles connoisseur looking for classic/vintage vehicles without having to pay luxury prices? You are in the...right place! I know that magic feeling when the right quality meets the right price, so I sell my vehicles worldwide at the most reasonable prices.This vehicle has a clear Utah Title. If you need to get a CA title for this vehicle, I can help you with that for an additional fee.1954 ROLLS ROYCE SILVER WRAITH PARK WARD LIMOUSINE.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 Bentley too was available as a chassis for coachbuilders but also for the first time could be bought with a Rolls-Royce built standard steel body.It was announced by Rolls-Royce in April 1946 as the 25/30 hp replacement for the 1939 Wraith in what had been their 20 hp and 20/25 hp market sector, that is to say Rolls-Royce's smaller car. The size was chosen to be in keeping with the mood of post-war austerity. Even very limited production of the chassis of the larger car, the Phantom IV, was not resumed until 1950 and then, officially, only for Heads of State.Improvements announced were: chromium-plated cylinder bores for the engine; a new more rigid chassis frame to go with new independent front suspension and a new synchromesh gearbox. Chassis lubrication was now centralized.Engine The straight six-cylinder postwar engine, which had been briefly made for the aborted by war Bentley Mark V, replaced conventional overhead valve gear with an F-head configuration of overhead inlet valves and side exhaust valves and reshaped combustion chambers. There were new main and big-end bearings and a more efficient drive to the timing gear. To this prewar mix Rolls-Royce added chromed bores. Initially, this engine retained the Mark V's capacity of 4,257 cc (259.8 cu in) increased from 1951 to 4,566 cc (278.6 cu in) and in 1955, after the introduction of the (standard wheelbase) Silver Cloud, to 4,887 cc (298.2 cu in) for the remaining Silver Wraiths.Initially only a four-speed manual gearbox was offered, but this was supplemented by a General Motors Hydramatic automatic option from 1952.MechanicalThis Rolls Royce has been sitting in a Private Collection for 12+ years and has been driven to shows and parades. Engine is in great shape, transmission shifts great through all the gears. Tires are in good driving condition. Runs, drives and stops great. Exterior The exterior is in great shape, no rust. Body is straight with no major damage. A few little things are missing on the exterior front fenders. I assume flags go there. Chrome is in excellent shape. All glass is intact. Overall great exterior and the paint shows really nice. InteriorThe Interior is very complete and in great shape. The back seat has been re-done. The front is original and needs to be re-done. The wood is not perfect but it’s all there and very presentable. The car needs just some TLC to get back into tip top condition. This is a Park Ward Limousine and comes with some extras in the back seat. THIS IS YOUR CHANCE TO OWN THIS GREAT CLASSIC!
