The Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith II was styled by John Blatchley. Between 1975 and 1980, just 2,135 examples were produced. The cars came equipped with rack-and-pinion power steering, automatic transmission, advanced air conditioning, and more. Rolls-Royce considered offering a more exclusive, long-wheelbase Phantom VII model based on the Silver Shadow, but production was not pursued and no prototypes were built. Instead, a long-wheelbase variant, some 4 inches longer to provide additional rear seat legroom, was offered. Initially, the long-wheelbase model did not have a separate name, but in 1976, with the introduction of the Silver Shadow II, the longer car was dubbed the Silver Wraith II. The Wraith II is identified by all alterations found on the Silver Shadow II and additionally an Everflex-covered roof (also available as an option on the Silver Shadow II), a smaller, more formal rear window and different wheel covers. Only 2,135 were built representing a tiny fraction of the number of Shadows built.
Equipped with its original 6.75 liter V-8 engine, this Wraith II is in nearly original condition. It has been well maintained by ownership and all mechanical and cosmetic aspects have been carefully preserved. The paint appears to be entirely original. The trim and brightwork is also in original condition, showing wear one would expect of a car this carefully maintained. The interior has all original leather and wood throughout. Mechanically, this Rolls is fit as a fiddle with full records and maintenance by current ownership.
