1939 ROLLS-ROYCE WRAITH PARK WARD SPORTS SALOON
This 1939 Rolls-Royce Wraith Park Ward Sports Saloon is one of the rarest, most storied automobiles we at Daniel Schmitt & Co. and ever had the pleasure of offering. It was purchased new by Lord Esmond Cecil Harmsworth, one of the youngest members ever elected to British Parliament, and the son of the founder of the Daily Mail; often credited with laying the foundation for modern journalism. Lord Esmond Cecil Harmsworth was also chairman of Associated Newspapers, and a distinguished officer with the Royal Marines during WWI. This gorgeous automobile is featured on page 190 of “Those Elegant Rolls-Royce” by Lawrence Dalton, and a mint-condition copy of the book is included with the sale of this car. This wonderful car has had only two other owners since then with each one taking great efforts to preserve the magnificence bestowed upon it by the craftsmen at Derby. The Wraith was unique among Rolls-Royce models with many features never before seen. The ultimate emphasis was put upon refinement and is said by the Rolls-Royce & Bentley Buyer’s Guide to be the quietest Rolls-Royce ever built. The chassis was completely redesigned and fitted with a central hydraulic jacking system, the engine received a new cross-flow cylinder head, ignition advance was entirely automatic, and the radiator was moved forward, giving coach builders more space to innovate. This particular example received Sports Saloon coachwork by Park Ward and looks absolutely magnificent from any view. With only 491 Wraiths ever constructed during its two-year production run, it is among the lowest production Rolls-Royce models of all time. Examples with this amount of original content and exclusive provenance are effectively unheard of, making this acquisition opportunity one that is not likely to be repeated. Classic cars have proven to be among the most resilient and rewarding investments in recent years with the Historic Automobile Group Index (HAGI) jumping 39% in 2013 and posting gains of 395-percent over the last 10-years.

Financing

Finance rates as low as 5.9%.


We know that classic car financing can pose a unique challenge. Although a vintage or exotic car can be an excellent investment, some financial institutions attempt to apply standard “used car” rules for financing a classic car, which in many cases can make loan approval difficult.


We work closely with many banking institutions that understand and recognize the collector value of classic cars and view them as an investment, which allows us to help you get the financing you need so that you can have the car you have dreamed of.


Terms available up to 144 Months
