1998 'R' Rolls Royce Silver Dawn, chassis no. 66167, 6th from last made !

This is a beautiful car which we have previously sold twice, in 2015 to a long term RREC member and in 2017 to an elderly gentleman who has sadly given up driving and asked us to find the car a new home on his behalf.

In total only 87 Silver Dawns were ever built with right hand drive, all on the long wheelbase platform, 79 were built in 1997 and only 8 were built in 1998, the final year of production. This car is chassis number 66167, the 6th from the last made and one of the last cars ever built at the Rolls Royce factory in Crewe.

 The car has covered just 36,000 miles and benefits from an excellent service record detailing previous maintenance at 1000, 3069, 4392, 6081, 8417, 9939, 11984, 14148, 18417, 26279, 27355, 29445, 31240 and 36059 miles. In addition to the stamped service book we have an A4 folder containing many further invoices for work carried out illustrating fastidious maintenance throughout the cars past. The car has very recently had 1500 braking and hydraulic system overhaul including new accumulators, hydraulic pipes and brake pads. We also have complete build history for the car from the Rolls Royce factory and the original purchase order in the sum of 108,642.85.

The V5 now shows 5 previous owners however the car was originally registered to the first owner's company for his own personal use, then registered in his own name and upon his passing the car was registered to his widow. In 2009 the vehicle was purchased by another gentleman who was effectively the second owner. We have a letter from the gentleman's widow and photocopies of previous V5's to substantiate this.

The condition of the car is quite exemplary, a real credit to it's previous custodians, the interior showing negligible signs of use and genuinely looking as though it has barely been sat in. To drive the vehicle is a total joy, the car performing beautifully and everything working exactly as it should, this definitely ranks among the best examples you are ever likely to see.

Finished in stunning Peacock Blue Mica with Sandstone fine lines, the interior is trimmed in Sandstone hide with Fawn Marvellon hide roof lining, Royal Blue top roll, Sandstone knee roll complemented with dark blue carpets which are protected by dark blue lambs wool over rugs. The burl walnut veneers have beautiful matchwood inlays and the rear compartment is further enhanced by vanity mirrors.

The 1998 Silver Dawn is a very rare and desirable model and this particular car is one of the last "proper" Rolls Royce motor cars built at Crewe. The car is exceptional throughout and ought to steadily appreciate.
