An absolutely immaculate, totally original, low mileage
2 owner example which has been garaged all it's life and has never left the island of Jersey.
This car is outstanding, there is not a
single stone chip or scratch on the car and the paint work is totally
original throughout with no touch ups and no sign of previous repairs,
this is easily the best Silver Dawn
The car has covered just 27,000 miles with a service
record second to none, two service books detailing maintenance at 1957,
3666, 5067, 6305, 7539, 8702, 9899, 11975, 13601, 15286, 16820, 17923,
19146, 20692, 21726, 22360, 23015, 23833, 24580, 26025, 26604, 26604 and
26816 miles - the car has been serviced annually regardless of mileage
covered, the last service costing £6500 to include braking system overhaul
with new discs and pads all round, new hydraulic hoses etc. Cars which
have been looked after this meticulously are very few and far between. In
addition to the stamped service book we have an A4 binder containing a
collection of invoices detailing work carried out together with the
official build sheets from the Rolls Royce factory.
The first owner retained the car until 2003, having the
car serviced annually at St Helier garages. The second owner acquired the
car when it had covered just 14,000 miles and has had the car serviced
annually at Jacksons Ltd., only two garages have ever touched this car.
Needless to say, the car drives flawlessly with everything working exactly
as it should. Cars on Jersey have a very easy life, the island has a
blanket 30mph speed limit and they do not salt the roads in winter, in
fact this car never left the garage in winter !
