1955 Rolls Royce Silver Wraith Hooper Touring Limousine

Registration Number: 361UYT

Chassis number: DLW133

A supremely elegant one off design by Hooper.  This is the only car known to have been produced to design number 8422.   The car has had a massive restoration less then 5 years ago completed by Marque Specialists Frank Dale & Stepsons in Conjunction with Hanwells.  The car is needless to say in stunning order throughout.  Since then it has resided in a small collection seeing sparing summer use only.  The car comes with a massive history file detailing the numerous works done to it over the years.  It is a low mileage car with almost no wear to the accelerator pedal & 46,000 miles showing on the odometer.  It was used from new in Mayfair where it sat in an undergorund garage & was used for short jaunts round the neighbourhood.

Paintwork is immaculate British Racing green with magnolia to the sides.  Acres of Spuce green hide swathe the interior along with beige carpets.  The spectacular woodwork has all been removed, refinished & refitted making the cabin an opulent place to be.  A pair of particularly large picnic tables fold out of the bulkhead for the use of the rear passengers.  To the centre os a small drinks cabinet with a relief bust in pewter of none other then Sir Winston Churchill.  A modern sound system & CD player is discreetly hidden away in the glove box.  The boot space is cavernous & able to stow large quantities of luggage.  A full tool kit is located in it along with the spare wheel.

The car is equipped with the larger 4.9 litre engine allied to a smooth changing autommatic gear box.  The suspension has all been gone through & rebuilt leaving the car with a simply beautiful ride quality.  Power steering is also fitted to the car.  I cannot over-emphasize how beautifully done this car is.  It is streets ahead of later cars such as Silver Clouds & is just lovely to drive.  Rarely do we receive a car or such super quality where no excuses need be made.
