The Wraithwas the first post-warRolls-Royce. It was made from 1946 to 1958 as only a chassis at Rolls-Royce's formerMerlin engineplant, theirCrewe factory, alongside the shorterBentley Mark VI. The Bentley too was available as a chassis for coachbuilders but also for the first time could be bought with a Rolls-Royce built standard steel body.
The straight six-cylinder postwar engine, which had been briefly made for the aborted by warBentley Mark V, replaced conventional overhead valve gear with anF-headconfiguration of overhead inlet valves and side exhaust valves and reshaped combustion chambers. There were new main and big-end bearings and a more efficient drive to the timing gear. To this prewar mix Rolls-Royce added chromed bores. Initially, this engine retained the Mark V's capacity of 4,257cc (259.8cuin) increased from 1951 to 4,566cc (278.6cuin).
