For sale in our Chicago showroom is this refreshingly original 1954 Rolls Royce Silver Dawn. The silver dawn was Rolls Royce first step back into the â??luxuryâ? 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. The inline 6 engine produces a soft whir, only audible with listening for it. One step inside the cabin and you can understand how the asking price of approximately $140,000 of todayâ??s US dollar isnâ??t too unreasonable. The warm wooden dash and the mint green leather interior give a soft contrast and classy appearance of a time since lost.
The black paint looks to be deep enough that you could swim in it, and is believed to be original, as well as all the sheet metal and glass. The vehicle recently went through service and received a new set of tires, as well as a fresh battery to be sure you wonâ??t be stranded when showing this beauty off. This Silver Dawn has only seen 63,499 actual miles on the original engine and transmission, and the condition reflects it. The driverâ??s seat shows only minor distressing, but is otherwise in fantastic shape. The semaphores bring an authenticity and function without a hitch to alert others your intended direction.
This classy vintage luxury brings a presence not felt by many other automobiles. Options include: AM/FM Radio, Bias-Ply Tires, Leather Interior, Power Brakes, Power Steering and a Numbers Matching Engine and Transmission.
