Must be a prewar Wraith, Barker went into receivership in 1938.

It is a Silver Wraith, which had a pre-war Barker body fitted, as a second body after an Inskip production. Chassis WYA20

A saloon with division (Barker body 7331) originally on Phantom III 3CP40 and transferred to this Silver Wraith chassis for Miss Mary T Horn in New York.

Would you happen to have a pic of 3CP40 with this body on, Steve? I only have one with a Limousine by Barker body on, in a rather dilapidated state..(some years old, when being for sale)

Rob - no, sorry, no photos of 3CP40 originally.
It had the Barker removed in 1948 and fitted to Silver Wraith WYA20. At the same time this Park Ward limousine first on Wraith WHC24 and then on Phantom III 3BT53 was fitted to the second PIII chassis.
