This 1951 Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith features sedan coachwork by James Young and is finished in dark red over beige leather. Power is supplied by a 4.6-liter F-head inline-six paired with a four-speed manual transmission, and features include a push-button radio, a front driving light and fog lamps, whitewall tires, and a chrome grill, trim, and bumpers. The car was acquired by the current owner in June 2007, and it was previously listed on BaT in August 2021 . Service completed since the previous listing has included installing an electric fuel pump, rebuilding and tuning the carburetor, replacing the brake master cylinder, and servicing the drum brakes. This Silver Wraith is now offered on dealer consignment with partial service records and a clean North Carolina title.

The four-door sedan body was crafted by James Young Limited of Bromley, England, and is finished in dark red. Equipment includes a Spirit of Ecstasy ornament, front fog lamps, a center-mounted driving light, semaphore turn signals, and a chrome grille surround, trim, and bumpers. The passenger-side front turn signal lens is missing, the rear bumper is dented, and various paint chips and other imperfections can be seen in detail in the gallery below.

The 17” steel wheels feature gold-finished trim rings with body-colored covers and are wrapped in older whitewall tires. A full-size spare is found in the trunk. Stopping power is provided by servo-assisted hydraulic drums all around, and service in 2023 included brake repair and replacement of the master cylinder. The car rides on independent suspension with coil springs up front and a live axle with semi-elliptical leaves out back.

A three-spoke steering wheel with hand throttle controls fronts a wood dash housing a 100-mph speedometer, an analog clock, a combination gauge for oil pressure and coolant temperature, and auxiliary displays for amperage and fuel level. The five-digit odometer shows just under 60k miles, approximately 2k of which have been added during current ownership. Total mileage is unknown. Cracks are noted on the steering wheel and dashboard veneer.

  • Delivered new to the UK’s most powerful media mogul, The Right Honorable James Gomer Berry, 1st Viscount Kemsley
  • Retains its numbers-matching straight-six engine and original aluminum body
  • Treated to an award-winning six-year restoration by preeminent marque specialist Ralph Curzon circa 2000
  • Documented by Rolls-Royce and Hooper build record copies, Rolls-Royce Owners’ Club trophies, and original factory registration plates

THE LAST OF 10

Every Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith chassis produced from 1946 to 1959 was fitted with custom coachwork. The English coachbuilder Hooper produced many types of bodies upon the Silver Wraith chassis, but among their rarest and most formal designs is the Seven-Passenger Limousine as offered here.

Just 10 examples of these hand-wrought aluminum beauties were created between 1947 and 1951; the first was built for Lord Louis Mountbatten in his service as Viceroy of India. The last, offered here, was delivered new to the United Kingdom’s most powerful media mogul, The Right Honorable James Gomer Berry, 1st Viscount Kemsley.

LORD KEMSLEY’S LIMOUSINE

From 1920 until 1955, Lord Kemsley enjoyed considerable political influence on account of his 22 major newspapers. He was also the patron of several authors, most notably Ian Fleming. Between 1946 and 1961, the Viscount employed Fleming in foreign editorial roles for The Sunday Times , thereby allowing Fleming to draw a regular salary for nine months of the year while working on his James Bond novels from the comfort of his home in Jamaica.

Despite their extremely close relationship (Fleming was reportedly the only person within Kemsley’s publishing empire who was permitted to call the Viscount by his common name, Gomer), Fleming’s personal correspondence is still rife with references to his patron’s “excessive” formality, ruthless business dealings, and series of imposing Rolls-Royce Limousines. It is no surprise that several characters within the James Bond anthology are very closely modeled upon Kemsley’s dignified and overbearing image.

Factory documentation from both Rolls-Royce and Hooper illustrate that chassis WME 85 was originally finished in black over a front cabin trimmed in fawn leather, and rear cabin in fawn “West of England” wool cloth with mohair carpets and flame walnut veneers.

Maintenance records from the Viscount’s ownership indicate further rear cabin modifications undertaken in July 1952 by Hooper to replicate several features as found on the Aga Khan’s famous Phantom IV Sedanca de Ville, in which Kemsley had recently traveled. These modifications included the fitment of tinted purdah glass, special silk rope pulls, an armrest storage box with newspaper cubby, supplemental reading lights, and interior mirrors.

Rather interestingly, the sale of WME 85 is accompanied by a special coin set and pin given to Lord Kemsley during Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation in June 1953. The consignor discovered these items wedged under the rear seat, presumably misplaced there during the coronation festivities.

By late 1956, Lord Kemsley had sold WME 85 back to Rolls-Royce, and it was subsequently given the factory registration plates “6518 TU” for use as a diplomatic limousine in service of the British government. These registration plates remain with the car to the present.

In May 1961, WME 85 was acquired by a San Francisco, California-based stockbroker and imported to the United States. Having further passed through subsequent owners in and around Kansas City, Missouri, WME 85 was discovered by the consignor in 1997. At the time, its odometer indicated just under 12,800 miles, and was reportedly in an extremely original but disused state.

THE FINEST HOOPER CAR

The consignor enlisted the renowned marque specialist Ralph Curzon to execute a complete restoration, which ultimately required six years of fastidious work to yield the astonishing effort of cosmetic brilliance and mechanical performance presented today. Under Curzon’s purview, all the car’s unique features, such as its “supplicating” divider glass and undercarriage-mounted antenna, were painstakingly restored after extensive correspondence with the Rolls-Royce company archives. No consideration escaped Curzon’s attention: Every nut and bolt was re-plated to factory specifications, and the car was similarly treated to a complete rewiring of its famously troublesome electrical systems.

WME 85’s rarified Hooper Limousine body remains exceedingly correct throughout, and the car’s straight six-cylinder engine is numbers-matching to the unit listed on factory documentation. The exterior has been refinished in its factory-correct black, and the interior has been similarly retrimmed in the proper fabric, trim, and finishes as specified on its factory order sheet. Even the proper West of England wool cloth—typically used in raincoats and billiard tables—was tracked down and refitted to the rear seats.

Since emerging from its restoration, WME 85 has won numerous awards at several important national-level Rolls-Royce Owners’ Club events, including Best in Show and Finest Hooper Car twice. Furthermore, it was awarded a coveted People’s Choice prize at the Meadowbrook Concours d’Elegance.

This is a fantastic opportunity to acquire an exceptionally formal and eminently functional Silver Wraith. Benefitting from fascinating provenance and documented by both its Rolls-Royce and Hooper factory records, WME 85 would be a much-welcomed entrant at marque events in every corner of the world.

Description

See inspection report, full photos, videos and more at classicpromenade.com. We are pleased to present Zelda, a 1951 Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith Hooper Touring Limousine (chassis No. WOF17) that is a rust-free and beautiful example that has enjoyed the same owner for the past 35 years. WOF17 is a Hooper Touring Limousine with Body Design No. 8283. Zelda is one of 15 examples of this body design built during 1951. The white livery is in excellent condition with beautiful luster and shine. Although an older repaint, there are no scratches, dents or areas where the paint has been rubbed through. There are only a few small chips where the hood opens, most of which have been touched up. The white paint is complemented by proper burgundy coach stripes. The chrome and stainless trim are all excellent, with the exception of the passenger side rear wheel cover trim ring which has peeling and imperfections. The radiator shell has the expected light scratches in the stainless. We love the style of the Hooper-designed rear quarter light glass. And the Lucas P100 headlights are beautiful and give the car an imposing and formal pre-War appearance. The burgundy leather is soft and supple with only minimal wear present. There are no rips or tears. Matching burgundy seat belts have been added for four passengers. The wood grain is beautifully contrasted and is in very nice condition. There are no noticeable cracks or issues, it is in overall very good to excellent condition. The matching burgundy Wilton wool carpeting is done just right and in very good condition. The interior has a multitude of custom features, including leather padded tables for rear seat occupants, foot rests, a built-in wood cabinet for cocktail requisites or other vanity items, a World Radio, etc. The tool kit is nearly complete and is under the passenger side glove box and the Owners Manual is in the glove box. The antenna comes with the car but is not mounted since it doesn't retract and would be difficult to clear a normal garage door. The engine runs perfectly. On December 4th, 2020, we operated it for about 30-35 minutes. The oil pressure was excellent. After 30 minutes, the oil pressure reading was 22-24 pounds at idle and 34 pounds at 50 mph. The operating temperature ranged from 70 to 80 degrees C with an ambient temperature of about 72 degrees F. All the instruments, including the low fuel light warning, work great. Ask us how we know about the low fuel warning! The turn signals and semaphores all work as they should. Overall, Zelda is a delight to drive in every respect. She handles well and effortlessly keeps up with modern traffic. And the power assisted brakes work beautifully. HISTORY OF WOF17 Zelda was purchased new by Mr. D. King who was by then running the publicly traded automotive and industrial equipment manufacturer George W. King Ltd. In Stratford, London. On July 29th, 1966, Mr. PB Williamson of Wimbledon, London purchased the Rolls from Frank Dale & Sons, trading in his 1939 Rolls-Royce. A copy of this sales invoice is included with the motorcar. By the 1980s the Rolls had been imported to Southern California. The professional golfer, Gene Littler, enjoyed the Rolls in his collection of about 20 collector cars located in the San Diego area. He had 29 PGA Tour Tournament wins, eight PGA Championship wins and was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 1990. Mr. Littler just passed away in February 2019. By 1984, Mr. Littler traded the Silver Wraith into the Rolls-Royce dealership in order to acquire a Rolls-Royce Tiger Hunt motorcar. San Diego Ltd, the authorized San Diego area Rolls-Royce dealership, then offered WOF17 for sale, having accumulated about 52,000 miles. It is quite rare for Rolls-Royce dealerships to sell what was at that time a 33 year old motorcar. The Rolls was a beautiful example that had received a thorough restoration. Mr. TJ Moore also from the San Diego area purchased the Rolls for $52,000, which in 1984 was a handsome sum of money. He has enjoyed and maintained the Rolls ever since. Nearly all of the servicing since Mr. Moore acquired the Rolls has been performed by Symbolic Motor Cars. The odometer presently reads 57,185. The Rolls is now available for inspection in our Phoenix, AZ showroom. Please call or text Harry Clark at 1.602.245.7200 or email us at [email protected] . We are pleased to help arrange transport worldwide.
