The Wraith was the first post-war Rolls-Royce. It was made from
1946 to 1958 as only a chassis at Rolls-Royce's former Merlin
engine plant, their Crewe factory, alongside the shorter Bentley
Mark VI. The Bentley too was available as a chassis for
coachbuilders but also for the first time could be bought with a
Rolls-Royce built standard steel body. The straight six-cylinder
postwar engine, which had been briefly made for the aborted by war
Bentley Mark V, replaced conventional overhead valve gear with an
F-head configuration of overhead inlet valves and side exhaust
valves and reshaped combustion chambers. There were new main and
big-end bearings and a more efficient drive to the timing gear. To
this prewar mix Rolls-Royce added chromed bores. Initially, this
engine retained the Mark V's capacity of 4,257 cc (259.8 cu in)
increased from 1951 to 4,566 cc (278.6 cu in).
