rolls royce silver wraith ii

Drive down the road in comfort and style in this 1979 Rolls Royce Silver Wraith II.

 

The present owner has had this  Rolls Royce Silver Wraith II for approximately 10 years. The Rolls Royce is ultimately the marque of luxury and here is a prime example. The car runs well and has had regular maintenance over the years. The car has approximately 116000 miles. The odometer was not working and was replaced in 2019 with 114000 miles at that time. This car will require a little work cosmetically and is well worth the investment as these cars are consistently going up in value.

See attached some of the documented histories of the car. This will include vehicle specifications. History of work that has been done over the years. Also, a list of previous owners.
