  • The Silver Dawn introduced in 1949 was a “badge-engineered” Bentley Mark VI and became an enormously successful early post-war car. Aimed at the lucrative American market, the Silver Dawn offered an eminently usable Rolls-Royce and appealed to the owner-driver. Its silky road manners are quite simply delightful, and entirely suitable for modern motoring.

    The magnificent 1953 Rolls-Royce Silver Dawn Saloon featured here is finished in stunning Mason’s Black over a red Connolly leather interior, surrounded by magnificent burled walnut woodwork throughout. Delivered new by special order to San Francisco, California to its first owner who in 1976 sold to its second owner, a Rolls-Royce specialist and Pebble Beach Concours judge. It was meticulously maintained and showed at many Rolls-Royce Owners’ Club events while receiving multiple first-place wins. Seldom does an American left-hand Silver Dawn come to market, especially with this provenance and incredible condition. In over 40 years of collecting and selling Rolls-Royce’s, I have only run across a handful of Silver Dawns in American left-hand drive. We are proud to offer what we believe to be a stunning 1953 Rolls-Royce Silver Dawn Saloon to the investment-minded collector, investor, or enthusiast who understands and appreciates the potential of this rare and highly collectible model!

    Financing

    Finance rates as low as 5.9%.


    We know that classic car financing can pose a unique challenge. Although a vintage or exotic car can be an excellent investment, some financial institutions attempt to apply standard “used car” rules for financing a classic car, which in many cases can make loan approval difficult.


    We work closely with many banking institutions that understand and recognize the collector value of classic cars and view them as an investment, which allows us to help you get the financing you need so that you can have the car you have dreamed of.


    Terms available up to 144 Months


    If you have any questions, feel free to contact us, (314)291-7000 or credit@schmitt.com
