Roll out the red carpet! This week’s vehicle spotlight highlights a luxury car with a dazzling history, donated to support Disabled American Veterans. It is easy to make a difference with a DAV car donation, even if it isn’t as flashy as this story!
The Car: 1978 Rolls Royce Silver Wraith II
This car is iconic, but don’t just take our word from it.
According to this knowledgeable donor:
“The Silver Wraith II was built from 1977 until 1980 with a production total of only 2,145 vehicles, making it among the RAREST Rolls-Royce models ever produced. The Silver Wraith II is a masterpiece of hand-built craftsmanship. There are automobiles — and then there is the Rolls Royce Silver Wraith II. So luxurious, it qualified as a limousine. With its individually longer wheelbase,
the ride was remarkably smooth — the sophisticated self-leveling system kept the Silver Wraith II at optimum ride height regardless of the load. The Silver Wraith II was the most formal of all Rolls Royce saloons. It was among the first of the ultra-luxury saloons to crack the $100,000 USD mark.
The Silver Wraith II augmented the model hierarchy as the company Flagship.”
This beautiful vintage luxury vehicle was donated in support of a noble cause and brought a significant benefit to the charity, DAV.
Disabled American Veterans
DAV (Disabled American Veterans) has been serving veterans since 1920. They have a critical focus: “empowering veterans to lead high-quality lives with respect and dignity.”
Nationwide, they have nearly 1,300 chapters and over 1 million members. DAV works to ensure veterans get the benefits and respect they deserve.
One important facet is providing free assistance so veterans can get their earned benefits and services. In 2017, DAV helped connect veterans and their families with over $4 billion in benefits. They advocate for disabled veterans and their families in the state, local and federal levels of government. Also, they help veterans help one another, through volunteer outreach.
Disabled American Veterans does amazing work — but they need your help.
