Only two Rolls Royce Silver Wraith by Abbott, and this fixed head coupé on chassis WGC17 was supplied in 1950 to H.H.Phillips in South Rhodesia,and is still out there, though the country is now called Zimbabwe.

Here it is, from the 1990s. It is sad to say that this has now been chopped into a drophead coupe. Silly, and sacrilege!

It's what happens to closed big cars in less than perfect state, when new owners what something spiffy, open and sporty, in stead of playing their own chauffeur. Even worse, a perfectly good PIII Windovers Saloon (quite attractive) in the Netherlands was ripped to pieces by a RREC member to produce his idea of a Cabriolet...
Thanks for teh pic of 3AZ44!
