Collectible Motor Car of Atlanta
1750 Enterprise Way, Suite 109
Collectible Motorcar of Atlanta is proud to offer this stunning example of a 1980 Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith II. Finished in Chestnut (metallic) with beige Connolly leather with matching beige fine lines to the waist-rails. Interior carpeting is finished in matching light tan.
This is a 2 owner car from new - this is worth repeating; a 2-owner car from brand new! Build date; 11/80 and VIN 41586 making it the 62nd last Silver Shadow (SY) series to come from Crewe (last number: 41648). She was delivered in February 1981 in Texas, then transferred residence only once in its life up to the mid-west for professional storage (rarely if never driven). There the car sat in climate controlled storage for the last 10 years and shows an unquestionable 25,000 miles. The car is entirely and completely original, has NEVER been restored. When we say this car is in fantastic condition, we are being completely literal. It is the closest thing you will ever find to a show-room condition example.
100% original body & paint.
100% original Everflex top with no issues.
100% original interior with Connolly hide that looks and feels brand new.
100% original wood and other interior fittings.
This is an amazingly all original car with no modifications from the fine-lines, right down to the original Blaupunkt push button radio and separate cassette player. Being a Texan car, later in Wisconsin for storage (so never used) it has been freed from the perils of any type of harsh weather and is very clean underneath and all over. The car has zero rust issues of any kind, not even light scale on under surfaces. The body on this Wraith II is entirely straight and the paint is shiny and lustrous. The car still sports 100% of its original paint, which is truly quite amazing given that Rolls-Royce used a single stage paint process that generally did not "go the distance". To wit, most Rolls-Royces of this era have all been repainted. For this one to be original paint and still remain shiny is a testament to its careful ownership. This is especially true with metallic paints. Sometimes you might see a solid color (non-metallic) maintain its originality but very rarely, a heavy metallic - that the color Chestnut is. Even before its tenure in storage over the last 10 years, it could only have been stored in a climate controlled environment when not in use, for it to be this nice. When you look down the sides of the car, they are very straight and true. The paint presents beautifully, super-shiny and, as surprisingly, with virtually no marks at the base of the "A" and "C" pillars (typical lead-wiping joints). There are only the most insignificant imperfections here and there from its minimal use, but consistent with a very low-mileage car. Certainly, it needs nothing other than a wax from time to time. The interior of this Wraith II is pretty much close to perfect. The beige Vaumol-Luxan Connolly hide leather is 100% original from the factory. It has never been re-dyed and is in absolutely outstanding condition with no tears nor fading and not a single sign of wear. It is super supple and soft true to its Connolly characteristics. Perhaps these seats were covered and hence protected, because they are truly close to flawless. Have a look at the photos where I include many close ups of the leather. Our best description, is the leather looks like that of a 2-3 year old Silver Shadow/Wraith II. A great welcome with true "original Luxan leather" is the color characteristic. If you look at the pictures of the interior, there are some close-up shots that clearly show the color is not just plain beige, but with a "burnished" tone to the leather.
Owners and enthusiasts will know, that any Silver Shadow or Wraith II in this incredible original condition that has covered so few miles, is in need of completely going thru both mechanically and operationally. The owner states that the car has recently had the necessary work completed to the vehicle just recently before it was brought to Collectible Motor Car of Atlanta. The type of work that has been completed includes every major and minor service and specifically things like the hydraulics. Every single aspect of the system will be gone thru and serviced in detail; brake pumps, reservoir flushed and cleaned with new screens fitted, accumulators replaced, accumulator valves tested and rebuilt if necessary, calipers serviced and rebuilt if deemed necessary, pads with all new rubber flexible hoses replaced. Hydraulic work will extend to the rear height control feature as well. This work alone, is some $10,000. The tires on the car are original Michelin X whitewalls and will be replaced with the best tire of choice; Avon Turbosteel whitewalls. If you apply this attention to detail, this is what we will do to every aspect of the car including operational items such as AC, heater, electric windows, seats etc... right
