Lot #934.1 - This 1952 Silver Wraith with 4 door Saloon coachwork by Park Ward is powered by a 4,566cc (279cid) engine, its coachwork is an innovative design first shown by Park Ward at the 1949 Earls Court Show. Known as design number 144, eventually 121 were built accounting for well over a third of Park Ward's total production of 331 on the Silver Wraith short wheelbase chassis. Its design benefits first from the long sweeping teardrop front fenders which extend all the way back to the front of the similar but shorter teardrop rear fenders incorporating very effective rear wheel skirts. The built-in Silver Dawn-style headlights, 6 side windows, sloping beltline and roofline joining into a steeply sloped rear deck make design number 144 one of the most modern and attractive on the Silver Wraith. Finished in two shades of blue with red coachlines and matching new blue leather upholstery and Wilton carpets, this righthand drive Rolls-Royce has a 4-speed manual transmission, single center driving light, folding tables in the rear compartment, a modern Alpine stereo and air conditioning to ensure its usability in all climates and conditions. It has been thoughtfully restored and is an excellent driving automobile.
