High bid of $70,000 at 2009 Kruse International. (did not sell)
Mrs. Fricke for the Hotel Paris in Paris, France, ordered this car in 1956. The car came to the USA in 1980 and was used in the 1981 motion picture hit 'Arthur,' which starred Dudley Moore, Liza Minelli, and Sir John Gielgud. This movie won Oscars for its theme and Sir John Gieglud's performance. Through this movie, the so-called 'Arthur' car, became famous. After the movie, the car was sold to a collector in Boca Raton, who owned it for 20 years. The present owners purchased the car in April 2004 and had it refurbished to look as clean and original as possible.

The Silver Wraith was produced from 1946 through 1958 and Rolls-Royce enthusiasts have often claimed it to be the last true Rolls-Royce built without regard to fashion or price. The car is powered by a 4.88-liter, 6-cylinder engine developing 135 horsepower and weighs 4,620-pounds.
