The first time I saw it I thought it was based off the K-car, but the more I look at it I see the TC.
Glad to see some more from Silver-York!
At last, we finally get to see the original Sovereign in the flesh - the genesis of a model that served as the backbone of Silver-York for nearly a half-century - and it looks amazing from every angle. Hopefully, it won’t be long before the newest (2020) Sovereign, a full-size SUV, also gets its own detailed description here in a separate post.
Yup I’m currently going through all of the Silver-York Sovereign lineup so will be posting them regularly ovee the next month or so.
Though a couple of models will be missing due to body limitations ofc (mainly late 50s early 60s)
I must say, I’m a huge fan of your work, but I think the Accolade takes the cake. Obviously both the classic designs as well as the more modern stuff is great, but I think the Accolade just perfectly captures that awkward period in the American automotive history where Detroit figured that it needed to take risks to survive amidst growing competition from imports, and abandoned its traditional ways of making cars.
It looks late 80’s af while keeping the same classy American look you’d expect from a brand modeled after Caddy/Lincoln, and that new 4.6 engine…do I smell a Northstar here? Friggin’ fantastic
And you know what I really do think that the Accolade is probably one of my top top Silver-Yorks I’ve made. Like you say its just that odd awkward american era of cars that produced some really eye catching cars. Though there are plenty of odd models I haven’t gotten round to uploading to the forums just yet and currently in the process of doing!
I still like the early 70s Sovereign… I have the Greenhorn myself
Hey they don’t exist anymore reee XD
