A lovely original survivor, which comes complete with its factory “Silver Wraith” handbook, full tool tray, Lucas “ Flamethrower” driving lamps, mounted on pedestals and a period factory sunroof. All in themselves, very rare items indeed, confirming a cosseted past life.

All original, except for a sympathetic, professional, re-upholstery of certain interior surfaces, this Rolls Royce is an operating time warp experience of a time gone by. Just think about the year of this automobile, 1949. This Rolls Royce is 57 years old and still operates under its own power! What a testament to the engineers at Rolls Royce.

This Rolls Royce is in remarkable, unrestored, unmolested condition, which can be driven and used as it was intended to be.
