1955 Rolls Royce Silver Dawn "Lightweight" Saloon for sale
1955 Rolls Royce Silver Dawn "Lightweight" Saloon by H. J. Mulliner
~ **The very last Silver Dawn Chassis ever Produced ! **
The most desirable cars today for the serious collector seem to be from the big three. Ferrari. Mercedes or Rolls Royce. They have to be either a 1-off Custom "Coach Built" car or ultra rare low production cars made from the 30's thru the 60's. The last pinnacle on the investment podium are special cars that are made from Aluminum. The 300SL & the 275 GTB/4 have proven to be worth 3-4 times more than its steel counterparts. This wonderful Rolls Royce we have on offer is one of those perfect cars that have all the right boxes checked on your wish list. It is an all "Alloy" bodied Silver Dawn specially made for The Bowes Builder Corporation in 1955 to their specifications. This is a very well known Silver Dawn amongst the Rolls Royce community. It is a US spec delivery with Left Hand Drive on what is the very last Silver Dawn chassis ever produced & the only "Lightweight" Silver Dawn made by H. J. Mulliner.
Known as "LSVJ133". it was made by H. J. Mulliner & Co. Ltd. to a design that took the rather bland steel Silver Dawn platform to the next iconic level in Rolls Royce's future designs. Made from hand formed Aluminum. its become one of the Sportiest Saloons ever produced. Its Shell Gray over Black Pearl Coachwork is absolutly breathtaking. Its Cream Leather interior is stunning. It is equipped as follows from its original Build Sheet: It has a very rare. huge Factory sliding Sunroof. It has an optional picnic set containing a lunchbox. plates. thermos & matching silverware mounted in a sliding access door inside the drivers door. It has a crystal decanter & set of 4 shot glasses (missing 1) in the front passenger door. also inside a sliding access door. It has a set of back seat wooden picnic tables mounted behind the front seat. It still retains it's original notebook. comb & accessories mounted in areas around the back seat. It has it's original tool tray covering its factory Kinsman Tyre Pump system. It has a 6 piece set of fitted bags by "Velation Planned Luggage". It is also equipped with Air Conditioning with wooden vents under the dash as well as a modern Blaupunkt AM/FM/Cassette Radio.
It was completely restored to as new in c. 1989. It still appears in a wonderful state & shows only slight use & very few miles since. The odometer states it has only 37K miles & this is believed to be accurate & original. It also makes an appearance in "Rolls Royce. the Elegance Continues" by Lawrence Dalton & "Silver Dawns & Silver Wraiths" by Bernard King. This is a must have for any serious Rolls Royce collector. Fantastic Documentation from day one straight from the Rolls Royce Foundation stating this chassis was meant for a Bentley. but was decided to make it a big splash & designated it to be a Roller instead. Please notice the hand written Certicard. both front & rear are loaded with all of the 1st owners want list. Then notice the factory specs Works instruction build sheet & the copy of the ledger showing LSVJ133 as being the last chassis produced. This has to be one of the most modern designs in 1955. of a very special optioned Lightweight Silver Dawn along with a ton of documentation to back it up. Please consider this 1-off Alloy Bodied Rolls that sports the last Dawn Chassis in which ended one of the most exclusive & exciting eras in Rolls Royce history.
