1958 Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith James Young Long Wheelbase Limousine: Left-Hand Drive with Striking Colors
This 1958 Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith Limousine with coachwork by James Young is a factory Left-Hand Drive example finished in an utterly stunning, metallic, Sea Green. One of 1,883 Silver Wraiths produced in total. Chassis LGLW18 runs and drives well. The transmission and brakes are good. The exterior of this Wraith is in good condition overall. There are some chips in the paint where the hood meets the body, along the edges of the doors, and on the back end of the car. There are scratches in the paint by the chrome grille, and on the passenger side rear quarter panel. Most of the chrome around the car needs polishing but all of it is straight. The interior of this car is stunning with lovely wood. Emerald green leather sprawls throughout the cabin. Wooden inlays in this Wraith are abundant and most of the wood is in great shape. The seats up front show no signs of ever having been sat in and the rear bench looks ever so slightly stretched. The steering wheel and dashboard are in great condition. The door panels look great, almost as if they just left the upholsterer. Structurally sound, the underside of the car is free of damage and very solid. The car was built for US specifications in LHD. The Silver Wraith is a wonderful automobile with darling styling. The sea-foam green paint on this car really pops and looks astonishing in the sunlight. This Silver Wraith is a rare example coach-built by James Young Ltd. An exciting opportunity to own an early British ultra-luxury vehicle in an extraordinary color with an equally incredible interior.
