We are delighted to be able to offer for sale this amazing Rolls Royce Silver Wraith II, with an exceptionally special history. On the 16th of May 1980, this particular Rolls Royce (registered 3GXM) was delivered to its new keeper HRH Princess Margaret, who required a new vehicle for both her private and public engagements.
The Rolls Royce Silver Wraith II LWB Saloon was favoured by both the chauffeur-driven market, as well as the private family market, who were fond of the cars exceptional comfort and increased interior space. HRH Princess Margaret specified the vehicle and as a result, it has some interesting features. It was finished in Cardinal Red with a Black Everflex Roof carrying Standard Pennant and Royal Crest mountings and a police blue light, items not found on your 'everyday' Rolls Royce. The interior of the car is finished with a matte rosewood dashboard and door cappings trimmed in black Nuala leather, the latter preferred to polished veneer because it did not reflect press photographers' flashguns. The seats are trimmed in cream fabric, as are those of many Royal cars, while the rear bench seat is raised enabling the Princess to be seen.
This car is said to have been loaned by Princess Margaret to HRH Princess Diana; to President of the United States, Ronald Reagan and his wife on visits to London; and is believed to have also conveyed HM The Queen. Serviced regularly by Rolls-Royce main dealers in London, '3 GXM' undertook its final Royal duty on 15th February 2002 when it carried members of Princess Margaret's family to her private funeral in St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle. Her son, Viscount Linley, inherited the Rolls-Royce which, being surplus to requirements, was sold later that year to P&A Wood. The latter sold the car to a Mr Allwright, an enthusiastic Royalist, who even went so far as to purchase its private registration, '3 GXM', which had been carried by Princess Margaret's cars for many years, receiving assistance from Viscount Linley in its acquisition.
The car comes complete with a superb history book, showcasing its appearance in various newspapers as well as some never before seen images of its use by its Royal guests.
It is a great privilege for us at Bramley to be able to offer for sale such a special piece of automotive and British history.
