In the old days (before WW2), bodies for Rolls-Royces used to be made by specialised car body workshops to a customer’s specifications. After WW2, Rolls-Royce started manufacturing complete vehicles. In order to still meet customers’ wishes for special bodies, they supplied the Silver Wraith series to a number of car body workshops. There were 1,144 in total. These Rolls with chassis number WFC62 was built by the famous car body workshop Park Ward under construction number 45.

This "Light Sports Saloon" was ordered on 10 February 1949 by Mr. J. Dadswell. The complete order list with extras and wishes is available in the folder. The car has won top awards at car competitions. Please see photos. The car is in beautiful condition and drives like a new car. All detailed documentation including the original handbook are available. This beautiful car is rare: There are only 61 Silver Wraiths left without a separation window. It’s a real driver’s car. Get in and drive as kings and emperors did in the early 50s.

The vehicle can be viewed and picked up in Boskoop, the Netherlands.
