Vehicle Description

Words cannot describe this stunning 1954 Silver Dawn. Finished in black with aquamarine (light sage-teal green) Connolly leather upholstery fashioning everything in a very original and unrestored manner. She comes with a factory fitted sun-roof. Recently from the collection of a wealthy industrialist, where the owner was an avid (and life-time) collector of collectible classic cars, this Silver Dawn is one in very original condition and perhaps amongst the best out of the collection. Its most recent owner purchased the car in 1982 and had been part of his private collection since. The Silver Dawn was Rolls-Royce's first step back into the "luxury" market after World War II in 1949. The Silver Wraith had been the first vehicle released post-war in 1946. With only 760 Silver Dawns produced from 1949-1955, this truly is a rare vehicle. Body and paint is excellent with no known repaint during the industrialist's ownership. She presents very smooth and lustrous with only the typical blemishes and imperfections you can normally expect of such an older car, albeit well maintained. She is finished off with aquamarine/teal fine lines to the side coach-work in the correct hand painted tradition. Chrome, glass and fittings all present well. The interior is simply stunning with all its original fitments. The Connolly leather is supple soft with only very modest signs of aged hides. She does show all the lovely signs of gentle use and the warm "patina" that makes these Rolls-Royce interiors what they are (The word "patina" is used literally here, and not as a means to explain old dry and cracked leather!). The African burl walnut wood throughout is in nice condition and appears to be the only aspect of the interior that has been refinished. Carpets are excellent and the headliner without wear. Mechanically, the car is superb. She sings like the best should sing and always come to life when called upon. Recently put through Park-Ward's fully appointed facility with anything needing doing attended to. This aside, the car was excellent to commence with. She idles very smooth, powers well and handles the road comfortably and straight. She comes to a stand still true and strong. The tyres on the car are period correct whitewalls and are only a few years old. Under the bonnet, the presentation is amazing. It has not been precision detailed but simply kept clean and tidy throughout its life. Simply stunning! As you would expect, this Silver Dawn comes with its original accoutrements, all various tools, jack, torch, a brand new spare and operating manual. The car is of very high standard and is an undisputable 10 out of 10 driver rating and a true Preservation Class show car.
