Rolls Royce Silver Wraith II

Rolls Royce Silver Wraith II

Rolls Royce Silver Wraith 2 1975–1980

  • When Rolls Royce developed the Silver Shadow 2; they designated a different name to the long-wheelbase version, the Silver Wraith. This was recycling the name from the Silver Wraith of the 40s.
  • Like the Silver Shadow, the Silver Wraith fitted 235/70-15 Tyres, of which Longstone Tyres would recommend fitting the 235/70R15 Michelin XVS Whitewall.
  • This tyre will make the car handle at its best, improving directional stability and making it suited to our modern roads and dual carriageways.
  • However in period the standard equipment tyre was the 235/70 R 15 Avon Turbosteel or the 235/70 VR 15 Avon Turbosteel Whitewall. These tyres will give a beautiful soft ride, and if you are being driven in your Silver Wraith you might prefer a softer ride.
  • Some Silver Wraith II owners run their wheels tubeless, but as they lack the safety beads of a conventional tubeless wheel, we would strongly suggest you fit these wheels with innertubes.

Rolls Royce Silver Spur White Wall Tyres

There are a selection of whitewall tyres available in the size 235/70R15, of which we would suggest the 235/70R15 Michelin XVS Whitewall is by far the best.

History of the Rolls Royce Silver Wraith II

Rolls-Royce explored producing a more exclusive, long-wheelbase Phantom VII variant based on the Silver Shadow, but no prototypes were created. Instead, a long-wheelbase model, 4 inches longer to give more rear-seat legroom, was sold in the United States beginning in May 1969 and was accessible to domestic buyers beginning in early 1970. In 1967, a pilot batch of 10 long-wheelbase automobiles was produced and sold, one of which went to Princess Margaret.

A privacy glass divider was included in some long-wheelbase variants. Outside of North America, the cars with dividers had a separate air conditioning unit positioned in the boot; however, North American safety standards rendered this impractical because the fuel tank would have had to be relocated. The automobiles with dividers lost the whole wheelbase increase. The glass barrier could be controlled electrically.

The long-wheelbase variant did not have its own name at first, but with the release of the Silver Shadow II in 1976, the longer car was called the Silver Wraith II. All of the changes seen on the Silver Shadow II are present on the Wraith II, as well as an Everflex-covered roof (also available as an option on the Silver Shadow II), a smaller, more formal rear window, and new wheel covers. Some Silver Wraith IIs were also equipped with electric divides which occupied the four inches of rear legroom.
