Simply put, this 1955 Silver Dawn
Rolls Royce is one of the finest of its kind in the world. Of
the total production of 762 Silver Dawn Rolls Royces built between
1949 and 1955, the LSVJ 27 is one of the very last ever produced
and is equipped with many original special options. This beautiful
non-restored 4-door sedan is in near-perfect conditon, having
been maintained as new by authorized Rolls Royce service personal
since the day it rolled off the assembly line. It drives like
a dream, and has never seen a single day of bad weather.
Perfect chrome, glass, running boards, accessories, etc., beautiful
mirror-like, unblemished, original black paint in excellent condition,
and special factory turn indicators incorporated in the leading
edge of the front fenders help define the classic body lines
of this Silver Dawn.
Complete Mechanical Restoration
The vintage vehicle runs absolutely perfect with 103,000 miles
on the drivetrain. The engine, a 4.5 liter inline 6 cylinder,
provides plenty of horsepower and is backed by an automatic transmission.
The underhood and drivetrain has been faithfully detailed to
its factory original condition.
The interior of this Silver Dawn is just as striking as its exterior.
The seats and door panels sport beautiful, medium blue leather.
All four door panels have special, built-in pocket compartments.
The picnic table behind the front seat back rest is one large,
continuous drop-down table. At the request of the original owner,
the entire interior woodwork -- including the dashboard -- has
been specially finished to an extraordinarily high luster. Matching
carpeting and a perfect headliner complement the flawless interior.
Heavy-wear areas have been releathered as necessary (to stay
as close to 100 points as possible). (Also included with the
sale a couple of
Connley hides of the original color to replace anything that
may show any future wear.) The trunk and spare tire compartments
are as equally detailed as the rest of the car.
A Rare Find
Driven only in Palm Beach, Florida, and Southern California,
this extremely rare left-hand drive model comes with a complete
tool kit and original builder's instructions. This timeless classic
has been maintained to the absolute highest degree of perfection
-- and is, without a doubt, one of the finest examples in existence
today. And that is what makes this winner so
special -- Any car can be restored, but finding one kept in perfect
condition since new is as hard as it is rare. This vintage show
piece needs nothing other than a caring owner interested in either
high-point Concours d'Elegance or simply owning a magnificent
example of one of the best cars in the world!
