No more than thirteen bodies to Design No. 7019 are listed in H.J.
Mulliner's Body Books. The one shown here is the last coachwork built to this design; H.J.
Mulliner's Body No. 4761 on chassis #WTA72. Rolls-Royce sales brochure (original
catalogues from 1905 to 1998 are part of Roßfeldt-Archives) informed: "The
principles which underlie the production of Rolls-Royce cars remain always the same.
Engineering to standards as close as pssible to the ideal has always been Rolls-Royce
tradition." How far Rolls-Royce had succeeded in the pursuit of this ideal is clearly
evident in every detail of this fine motor car which does offer a most impressive sort of
transport and is a joy to drive.
In its day the price for Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith chassis was given at some £ 2,000,
complete with H.J. Mulliner Sedanca de Ville coachwork it was slightly less than £ 4,000.
In the United Kingdom however even having invested this princely sum wouldn't have made
you the owner of a new Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith, because a tremendous amount had to be
added for purchase tax.
