1938 1939 Rolls Royce 25/30 Wraith Park Ward Limousine For Sale
Rolls Royce developed the Wraith in 1938 to be their latest most refined model ever produced.Described by motoring journalists at the time as," thoroughly enjoyable and one of the quietest vehicles they had ever driven with a powerful improved engine."
This was due to be Rolls Royces flag ship going into the 1940s but was cut short by WW 2 and only 492 were produced .
Our car chassis number WLB 39 is ex Royal Navy and is believed to have been used by Lord Mountbatten the first Sea Lord,who retired in 1958 when the car was then sold into civilian use.The fitting for the roof mounted pennant remains,and we know the car was used in a VE Day parade at the end of the 2nd world war.
