Rolls-Royce launched its first new post-war car in 1946, the Silver Wraith. The new car was supplied in the traditional R-R way, separate chassis which could be fitted with a coachbuilt body of the customers choice. The Silver Wraith had a 127 inch wheel base which could accommodate elegant, formal limousine bodywork by such famed coachbuilders such as Mulliner, Park Ward, James Young and Hooper.
Mechanically the Silver Wraith shared the 4257cc side exhaust / overhead inlet valve, straight six engine with the Bentley MK6. The Silver Wraith also shared the same manual gearbox and mechanical servo assisted brakes. A revised Silver Wraith appeared in 1951.
