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.”

1977 FORD F250 Donated to Disabled American Veterans

It’s not every day that someone donates an antique car through Car Donation Wizard, but when it happens we love to share it with our readers. This fantastic vehicle was donated in support for Disabled American Veterans. Keep reading about this car’s history, and more information about DAV.

The Car: 1977 Ford F250

This car has been dubbed “the perfect do-everything car of the ’70s”, and it’s easy to see why.

This car is part of Ford’s F-Series line of cars, first manufactured in 1958. We’ve previously written about an F350, but this ’77 is clearly of a different caliber. This is not a Super Duty, but a Highboy.

The Highboy refers to 67-77 F-250 4×4’s. The name actually came from the Ford factory. They sat higher up in the factory than other pickups of the time, and thus a nickname was born! The Highboy was actually the basis of the very first monster truck, the Bigfoot 1.

As far as we know, this particular Highboy never reached monstrous heights, but it’s clearly equipped for offroading or camping, or just luxurious cruising.

After decades on the road, the upholstery is still looking quite sharp!
