The Silver Wraith was Rolls-Royce's first post-war model and was introduced in late 1946. It was given a chassis similar to that of the Silver Dawn and the Bentley MKVI, though with a 7-inch longer wheelbase. Production continued until 1952, with production reaching 1,144 units. The long-wheelbase version continued until the introduction of the Phantom V in 1959, by which time 639 chassis had been completed.

This particular example wears coachwork by Freestone & Webb, Ltd. It was constructed specially for the 1952 Earls Court Motor Show. According to the build records, the chassis was delivered to 'RR Lillie Hall' on June 14th, 1952. Just after the show was completed, it was delivered to G.R. Mount, Esq. of Lennards, Ltd. in Staple Hill, Bristol on November 12th, 1952. It would eventually find its way to the United States where it would become part of a large collection. Over the years it saw little use. In May of 1992, it was sold to Sweden where it would remain in a single collector's garage until 2008 when it was sold back to the United States.

This elegant and sporty automobile wears Freestone & Webb design number 3107 which was fitted on only one other chassis - WVH22. This car, chassis number WVH6, was completed first, and wears body number 1691.

The car was given a restoration by Hooper & Co. (coachbuilders) in London and was the subject of a recent cosmetic restoration and detailing.
