Description

Here is a really fine and original example of a Silver Wraith II. Finished in much sought-after Masons black with blood red fine lines to the waist-rails. The interior has handsome rich St. James red Connolly hides and matching Wilton carpets. The same rich burgundy theme carries through to the boot. The Silver Wraith II is the long wheel base version of the Silver Shadow II. Easily identified by the same rear window (opera window) and standard fitment Everflex vinyl top, it is 4” longer in the rear door. This provides a noticeable increase in rear passenger space. This is an unmolested example that has been conscientiously maintained and presents in very beautiful and excellent condition. She is primarily all original to include her factory fitment Blaupunkt push-button radio and Pioneer 8-track. This was originally a Texan car and then Florida for the rest of the time, so a “dry” car that has had a garaged environment. As a result, it has been freed from the perils of harsh weather and is very clean underneath. It has always been well maintained and serviced and comes with its original manual. The Silver Wraith II presented here has been recently work-shop inspected with all work needed carried out. Important costly items such as the hydraulics and brakes have been fully inspected and serviced as required. This included brake pumps, accumulators, calipers, all brake hoses and then final system pressure tested and bled. Subject to our "Predelivery Commissioning" process, it is ready to drive and enjoy. The odometer shows a low 48,000 and although this is not verifiable, the mileage is commensurate with the condition. It is very quiet and smooth on the road without any of the typical “thumps” and “rattles” typical of poor (or even averagely) maintained examples of this model. The interior is excellent. The leather is in very nice original condition with no cracks, tears nor fading and very supple and soft – true to its Connolly characteristics. It has been lightly reconnolised at some stage but done extremely well and in a way to keep its original patina. Any of the "lines" you see in the leather are for some reason accentuated in the photos and are far more subtle in real-life. These are just the natural creases Connolly hides develop with gentle use. You will see more of these "crease lines" on the driver seat but overall the leather is lovingly preserved. The burr walnut wood throughout the car is stunning. All the dash, door cappings and console were redone by the previous owner and are very close to “factory standard”. This is an expensive process to do, typically costing in the range of $3-4,000. This particular example has a very rich grain with heavy knots with deep ochres and browns that simply look stunning. The head lining is original and in good condition. The original carpets are in good condition. Likewise is the leather finish to the dash and top-roll. The boot (trunk) carpet with the burgundy- red finish is in excellent condition. The body on this Wraith II is very straight indeed, and the paint is shiny and lustrous. The car was repainted some 5 years ago and was a high quality job ($18,000). The finish is entirely consistent. When you look down the sides of the car, they are very straight and true. The paint presents absolutely beautifully with only the most tiny and minor little mark here and there from use. But any are barely noticeable and only mentioned out of "clear disclosure". There is certainly nothing in need of repair and all one needs to do is maintain it with a good polish and wax from time-to-time. The Everflex top is its original fitment and in very fine condition. The tyres are Toyo 235/75-15 whitewalls in good condition with plenty of tread. The hubcaps are excellent with no major imperfections in the stainless. All remaining bright-work is in good condition as is glass, electrics and instruments. All electrics on our cars are checked and serviced as needed, right down to
