1977 Rolls Royce Silver Wraith II
When it comes to luxury vehicles there is no denying that Rolls Royce sits at the top of the list. Even back in 1977, these cars came from the factory with all of the most innovative and top of the line components available. The curved front fenders, dual double headlights and large front grill command respect. This look would prove to be iconic for cars bearing the double R emblem as they are still being produced today with the same sort of design. In fact, they are arguably some of the only cars that still use the style of grill and hood ornament you would find back in the 20s and 30s.
This 1977 Rolls Royce Silver Wraith II is the long wheel base model of which only 2,175 were made. This low production number makes these cars fairly desirable compared to the shorter wheel base counterparts. That being said a Rolls collection just wouldn't be complete without it. This classic is painted in a soft Yellow and is accented with all of the original style chrome and stainless trim. The car has not undergone a complete frame off restoration but has been cosmetically and mechanically restored to the extent that it is still a nice show car and a very solid driver. All of the exterior electrical is cleanly mounted in place and all of it is working properly. The glass is in good condition and has a mild tint in place. Original style wheels and hubcaps sit under each corner of the car and are wrapped with thin white wall tires.
Powering the car is a 6.75L V8 that runs well. The motor was replaced but is the correct style engine for the car. The entire drivetrain was gone through by a certified Rolls Royce mechanic who fully serviced and inspected it down to items like the hydraulics, brakes, accumulators, brake hoses, calipers, etc. The car is rear wheel drive and utilizes a 3 speed automatic transmission. It is mechanically very sound and is a very smooth driving car. Sitting in it you would be amazed that this type of car was being made in 1977.
The interior is all leather and done in a dark chocolate color. Bucket seats are found up front with a bench seat in rear. All of the original style components are found throughout and everything works. The new air conditioning system blows cold and operates as it should. A new stereo system was also added and utilizes a power antenna which functions properly. Burled walnut is found on the dash and really add to the sense of luxury and class this car puts off. The wood is found in the correct places throughout the interior and is all in overall good condition, but could use some slight attention.
If you have always wanted a Rolls Royce but find the new ones a little out of your price range then here is your opportunity. It would make for a great driver and commands just as much attention today as it did when it was brand new.
