1978 Rolls Royce Donated to DAV

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.

DAV vehicle donation

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.

Suzuki Boulevard S40 Donated to Feed the Children

You probably know that Car Donation Wizard is the place to go if you want to donate your car to charity, but did you know that we also accept motorcycles, boats, RVs, and even airplanes? Today’s vehicle spotlight looks at a speedy Suzuki donated to Feed the Children.

This blue beauty is a 2006 Suzuki Boulevard S40. This model was marketed as the Suzuki Savage from 1986-2004, and there are no major cosmetic differences between the models.

The single-cylinder, four-stroke “thumper” engine is one of the largest displacement single cylinder engines in production today. The bike clocks in at a dainty 352 pounds dry, about 50 pounds below the average weight for a motorcycle.

Although this bike is over 10 years old, the donation rolled in with under 15,000 miles! This cleanly designed, easy-riding bike has a long future ahead of it! The former owner knew they could trust Car Donation Wizard to help them donate this bike to their favorite charity.

Feed the Children

Feed the Children is a nonprofit that actively combats childhood hunger and malnutrition. They provide food for children in need and work to change the conditions that cause kids to go hungry.

Every donation to Feed the Children makes a difference. They provide meals to over 263,000 children every single day. Not only fo they fight hunger today, but they work hard to prevent hunger tomorrow.

The key is education. Feed the Children provides children in need with backpacks full of school supplies, and snacks to keep kids focused. Since 2006, they have given over 1,000,000 backpacks to young students. Also, they provide free classroom supplies to teachers in underfunded areas, which helps another 525,000 students annually.

We have previously written about car donations to Feed the Children, but you can also donate your motorcycle, boat, or RV!

1961 Jaguar Mark IX Donated to American Cancer Society

Just recently we had a beautiful 1961 Jaguar Mark IX donate to American Cancer Society.  This classic Jaguar came to us from a generous donor in Laguna Beach, California.  You can see from the picture that this car lived a privileged life in sunny southern California.  With just over 27,000 miles, this car was kept in great running shape and was even treated to a new engine back in the early 1990’s.  Due to the donor taking great care of this car it has held its value over the last 56 years.  We expect it to earn quite a nice car donation for the American Cancer Society.

1977 MG MGB Donated to Michigan Public Radio

This is not the first MG we have received as a donation but it is one of the better models we have seen.  It is the fourth MG donated so far this year and also the oldest aside of a 1952 though that was a kit car and not an original.  This green roadster only has 3,505 miles which is incredible for a 1977.  We do not know much about this MG’s previous life but the donor is from Grand Rapids, Michigan.  Presumably, the car spent most of it’s time there cruising with the top down catching the breeze off Lake Michigan.

The ’77 MG has been donated to Michigan Radio, a part of the NPR news network.  Unfortunately, University of Michigan basketball suffered a tough loss last night in the NCAA tournament.  Hopefully seeing a donation like this one will help ease the pain.

1952 MG TD Donated to PETA

Recently there was a 1952 MG TD donated to PETA, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.  The unique thing about this classic car is that it is actually a fully restored MG kit car.  So while the car looks just like the model that was originally manufactured in 1949, it has actually been updated with modern amenities.  What’s better than that?  You can ride in this smooth driving throwback in comfortable leather seats surrounded by a fiberglass rebuild.
