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
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
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.
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.

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
