The Silver Wraith was the post-war Rolls-Royce automobile that continued the tradition of custom coachwork. A total of 1783 vehicles built from 1946 to 1959. Until World War Two, Rolls-Royce produced only the chassis and all of the bodies were added by coachbuilders. After the war, the company’s products were much more homogeneous with most bodies being built by Rolls-Royce. The Silver Wraith is the major exception with a huge variety of bodies being built during its production run. Many of the body designs however, were built in batches of between ten and fifty. This particular car features a very attractive Freestone and Webb saloon body of which a total of five were produced.

The wheelbase measures 127 inches and the car weighs approximately 4,480 lbs.
