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

Thank you!

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!

1965 Silver-York Sovereign Series

“Sales are booming!”





The mid-60s soon rolled over, the Sovereign had evolved over 5 distinct models (3 currently haven’t been made due to in-game limitations ;p) it’s popularity to the American public only continued to grow stronger and stronger. After the success of the 1961 Sovereign, Silver-York knew how important the rest of the decade would be. For 1965 Silver-York introduced a 2-Dr coupe aswell growing the Sovereign line to match the size of the Precinct line-up. Now consisting of the Sovereign Brougham, Sovereign Hardtop Sedan, Sovereign Sedan and finally the Sovereign 2-door. This new Personal luxury car was made to sit below the Margrave in the Personal luxury lineup of Silver-York with the Precinct sitting as the entry-level model.

Unlike the early 60s Sovereign, the '65 model was a complete lineup of cars growing Silver-Yorks full lineup larger and larger, just like the sales that Silver-York were receiving. Silver-York now had a distinct 3 tier lineup to the brand. With the Forty-Nine series and Margrave sitting as the top tier flagships, the Sovereign series serves as the mid-tier model range and the Precinct series as the entry-level model.







Shown below is the 2Dr model of the Sovereign and above shows off the top trim Silver-York Sovereign Brougham, featuring the optional 470CI V8.

1971 Silver-York Forty Nine Series Brougham

“And here comes the biggest Silver York ever created”





Interupting this daily Sovereign breifing with the 1971 Forty Nine. The Forty Nine (earlier 49S) has been arround since the 40s. Created as Silver-Yorks flagship model it sat at the top ever since. Now that the 70s have rolled over the standards in American luxury have grown. The Forty-Nine is the longest SY ever made. with a 3.7M wheelbase, custom manufactured for the Forty Nine model. Built completely in house its one of America’s longest completely in house built cars. The Forty nine used the same design as the exclusive Sovereign sedan, yet featured a longer wheelbase and the flagship engine. Another unique point to the Forty Nine is it’s completely customizable platform, allowing it to be used for commercial use.

With the evolution of SY full-width grills this comes with a two-tier grill design, as well as the addition of hideaway headlights. the first time the company have used these in many years. Powered by SY’s 513 series engine it provides all the power and smoothness needed in any luxury sedan. Available as a 6 seat sedan or a 9 seat limousine. The Forty Nine has been the standard in flagship luxury for many years, it looks back to the exclusivity of prewar American luxury.
