Description

In April 1946 Rolls-Royce introduced the new Silver Wright. It was company’s first motorcar after exhausting WWII. In former Merlin engine factory they built this captivating 25/30 hp successor and it was last Rolls-Royce model to be supplied as a “chassis only”. “In a world of shattered monetary values and yet much-improved cars, the Rolls-Royce still stands alone. Perhaps the most striking general thought in considering this supreme machine today is that it has a name more universally honored as a symbol of quality than that of any manufactured product.” – The Autocar, 9th December 1949.
