As war time came to an end, Rolls-Royce re-entered automobile production in 1946 with the Silver Wraith. This was the last Rolls-Royce delivered exclusively as a chassis for coach-built bodies. Power was from a pre-war inline 6-cylinder, with a new head incorporating overhead inlet valves and side exhaust valves.

Unlike previous Rolls-Royces, this was the first model to have commonality with its Bentley sibling. Many mechanical parts were shared due to low demand for luxury cars in post-war England.

Chassis no. LWHD48
Ordered in 1950 from Inskip, Inc. by the A.G. Baker Funeral Home of Bridgeport, Connecticut, chassis LWHD48 was delivered with Mulliner body style #5151 in black and grey. Currently the odometer shows just over 107,000 miles.

The current owner purchased the car in 1975 and treated it to a rebuilt engine in 1976, and new paint in 1993. The interior has been refurbished as needed, and the correct-size wheels have been fitted.
