1980 Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith II Premium Additional Info:

(North America) left hand drive 1980 Silver Wraith II 4-door saloon (no division).Incorporating craftsmanship far superior to any vehicles being made today. Extended wheelbase version of the popular “Silver Shadow II” (1977-1980). Car length: 207.5” (17’ 3”). Width 71”. Height: 59.75” (4’ 11 ¾”). Wheelbase: 124” (10’ 4”). The Silver Wraith II has many similarities to the Silver Shadow, but with additional improvements such as dual climate control, upper & lower A/C, disk brakes, independent rear self-leveling suspension, Everflex vinyl roof, and the benefit of the extra leg room in back seating area.Manufactured in mid-December, 1980 in Crewe, Cheshire, England. V.I.N. #LRL-41641. This number is proof that of the 2,132 motorcars produced of this model, only SEVEN additional Silver Wraith II's were ever manufactured AFTER this car was made, making this vehicle one of the very last of its kind ever produced, resulting in the incorporation of all the small design improvements developed by Rolls Royce up to this period, prior to the discontinuation of this model 2 weeks after this car was made (the end of 1980). This much sought after car truly is “the best of the last”! The Silver Wraith II was considered THE top-of-the-line for Rolls-Royce at the time of its manufacture. Exterior color is porcelain white with fine-line Blue piping along chrome strip. Inside door sills and jams are very clean and tidy, and is 4 inches longer than normal base model, providing a noticeable increase in rear passenger legroom and comfort. Used by current owner as business special event & wedding car transportation during the last 7 seasons. To have been used as a bridal/wedding car, this vehicle had to be very well maintained and servicedto high standards. Always stored in a climate controlled (& alarmed) dehumidified all brick facility with full concrete floor, (covered when not in use). Has never experienced the perils of harsh weather and snow. Under carriage is very clean! Silver Wraith II comes with its original jack, and owner’s operating manual. This Wraith has a rich and complementary Navy blue leather interior. With original Light ‘amber’ burled walnut woodwork paneling throughout are original and displays a lovely grain throughout. The wood presents nicely on the back doors, and looks like new. Front driver side door has part of the veneer on far right side broken off (though we have the pieces). New owner may wish to replace strip. Front passenger door wood has a small crack on left side, otherwise great condition. Driver side window needs repair for lowering and raising window.

EXTERIOR: Everflex vinyl top (exclusive to Silver Wraith II’s), presents well but with some age blemishes across the top of the front windscreen, and 1 roof blemish. With hand-painted fine lines to the waist-rails finished in contrasting Blue to match car interior color. All glass, chrome and bright work are excellent. Mid-tinted windows all round giving her a very formal look. Small rear ‘opera window’, and Corniche wheel covers. Missing 1 (one) embellishment ring, though found on the open market. All lights, and feature functions are in working order, with all bulbs and lamps replaced and operating as they should. Longer wiper arms needed. Power antenna. Interior clock and Original Blaupunkt push button radio are not working (electrical will require checking for possible simple fix electrical re-wiring). The body is straight and the paint is shiny and lustrous (as you can see from the attached pictures). Overall shiny and crisp and presents very nicely, certainly well above average for a motorcar closing in on 40 years of age! To best of seller’s knowledge, car was never winter driven, so no salt corrosion. Rack-and-Pinion power steering. Disk brakes. Brake pumps, accumulators, valves calipers and pads have been fully inspected. Brake hoses & lines have been replaced with new on back wheels (cost $1000), system pressure tested and bled. Rear height control valves replaced (Oct. 2018 at a cost of over $2000). Whitewall Tempa Esquire AS 75-R15 radial tyres are in very good condition with plenty of tread. Shiny, aluminum hub caps are same as used on Corniche, and are excellent with no dents or imperfections.

INTERIOR: Leather seating is in excellent condition without any notable marks or or tears. Finished in Wedgewood Blue throughout, including contrasting carpets and over rugs. The original dash is very good but with top sun deterioration, now covered with a matching Navy blue dash cover to prevent additional erosion from sun. The rear window parcel shelf has been replaced and is new. Head lining (mid-beige) is original and in super clean condition with no water staining or marks. Ashtrays present in “never used” condition. Non-smoking car. The odometer shows a little over 20,350 miles (not kilometers), and, although not verifiable with actual paperwork, it is apparent by the overall condition of the car that it is commensurate with the car’s condition. During its 39+ year life span, the car was driven less than 450 miles per year! Wood interior back inside window trim normally found on these cars, needs replaced. Power antenna not working. Power front drivers and passenger seats, windows, door locks in working order. Comes with original owner’s operating manual included, along with all repair and parts receipts provided by current owner.
