Sold for $110,000 at 2014 RM Auctions at Monterey.
Sold for $137,500 at 2015 RM Sotheby's Hershey Auction.
The original owner of this formal Sedanca de Ville was Marie Arnold Chapin, of Syracuse, New York. It is outfitted with coachbuilder H.J. Mulliner's design number 7055. It has an enclosed rear passenger compartment and a sliding hood over the driver's compartment. This was the 44th body installed on the Silver Wraith chassis by Mulliner. It has an aluminum skin body that was fitted over the wooden framework. Mrs. Chapin selected several non-standard items that were bespoke features. Among them included special lock placements, special lighting, export bumpers, fitted luggage suitcases, a pair of cigar lighters, a radio for the passengers, and additional Wilton wool carpeting to upholster two foot hassocks. The car has a glass division window which offered privacy to its occupants, and opera 'occasional' seats which folded out for extra seating. The interior was upholstered in tan leather in the front seats, with luxurious West of England wool cloth in the rear.

Since new, the car has been given a body-off restoration. After the work was completed, it won Best of Show at the 1999 Convention of the Rolls-Royce Owners' Club.

The car still retains its original leather suitcase for the trunk, a compete restored tool kit, an original handbook, and a workshop manual.
