These are the current logos that we have made. The first is a special edition '35 logo made for the release of the Teleiótita, the second is the late '50s early '60s and the final is the 80s logo. Many more do need to be made.

1985 Silver-York Accolade



The Silver-York Accolade, Still standing by “Technology of Tomorrow, Luxury of Yesterday”.

The Silver-York Accolade was introduced by Silver-York in 1985, A very special car for Silver-York, as the 80s progressed GT cars began growing steadily in the US market, sales of personal luxury vehicles were Slowly declining in popularity, cars such as the Sovereign coupe and the Margrave still remained great sellers for SIlver-York but not as great as they had been in the past two decades. Because of this Silver-York set out to create the most luxurious and special production car since the 60s, an American GT car with a touch of Italian after several years of development and finally deciding on the name “Accolade” Silver-York unveiled the car at the start of 1984, it featured very forward thinking styling. With a 4.7L SPFI V8 at the front powering the rear wheels something other brands weren’t doing Silver-York had partnered with an Italian designer and car manufacturer Marchetti. This Italian brand made the aluminium body and shipped it over to the US where it was finally assembled and sold, selling at nearly $55,000 in 1985 it was one of the most expensive Silver-Yorks made since the post war era.

The accolade came standard with basically everything, available with a removable hard top or as a complete convertible.

With its crisp styling, impressive standard equipment and decent power, it’s no wonder the Accolade would have earned… erm, accolades from the press with ease.

What about a facelifted version? Will that be shown as well? If so, I’d expect the facelift to introduce multi-point EFI in place of the single-point system, among other things.


#56

@abg7 A facelift is released in 1989, but as usual for American cars annual updates were introduced. With a smaller MPEFI being introduced in 1988 as well as the transmission being upgraded to a 4 speed. Pricing did increase slowly up until 89 capping at about $59,533. I have made a facelift and i will show it soon.


#57

I take it this car is inspired by this thing?


#58

Yes… its inspired by the Allanté and a wee bit by the TC and a few other things.


#59

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.

1989 Silver-York Accolade



Here you see the Facelifted Silver-York Accolade with a new 4.6L V8, with modern technology.
the 1989 Accolade comes with plenty of choices compared to the original 1985 model, with either a digital or analogue dash depending on the customer choice and with many visuals packages chose what you want.

The accolade came standard with basically everything, available with a removable hard top or as a complete convertible. For 1989 comes a far more performance orientated model but still with the comfort related to Silver-York. A reconstructed facia with new headlight units, plastic cladding and new smoother side cladding fitting the modern way. Not much in terms of specifications changed majorly, just to keep up with the times, the Accolade still remained the flagship GT/Coupe of the range trying to move Silver-York to be seen as not only a luxury brand but also a sporty brand appealing to the younger-wealthier audience

1954 Silver-York Sovereign Sedan

“The dawn of something special”





In 1954 Silver-York introduced a new series of sedans, the Silver-York Sovereign series was released celebrating 50 years of the company. It is now a name many of you know so well and has stood with Silver-York from 1954 into the late 90s before being revised in 2020.
The Sovereign was released to provide a more mainstream yet luxurious product sitting below the 49S it was second from the top in the hierarchy of Silver-York models. Although similar to the 49 (later named Forty Nine) in its base shape (and sharing the same chassis as the standard length 49) it was a vastly redesigned model, with a larger scare shape throughout its design. With the 1954 design came two sets of Dagmar’s on the front of the Sovereign, as well a new wider stance grill and integrated fog lamps in this new grill shape. The chrome design moved lower around the sides of the vehicle and as per the mid 50s wings began to grow bigger and bigger.

The Sovereign came only as a 6 window sedan equiped Silver-Yorks 355 engine paired to a 3 speed automatic gearbox.







Silver-York never knew how succesful the Sovereign name would become, being Silver-Yorks stable sedan model for the next 50 years.

Glad to see some more from Silver-York!


#63

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.


#65

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)

1961 Silver-York Sovereign 4 window

“And so the 60s begin”





After slowly climbing Silver-Yorks ranks, the Sovereign became the best selling Silver-York model by the end of the 50s, with many design revisions tail-fins grew prouder and stronger being a symbol of opulence and pure American luxury. in 1961 the Sovereign sedan face a minor redesign, toning down some of the design elements, with smaller tail fins and “simpler” design, entering into the 60s was a big strive for Silver-York but since the second world war sales figures had just continued to climb and climb and the 60s certainly wouldn’t buck this trend. The only issue with the 1961 Sovereign sedan was that its fascia still relatively out of date to enter into the 60s this was soon updated in the '62 design.

The Sovereign series had been far more successful than Silver-York had expected, becoming its staple model although still sat below the 49 and Margrave (which had been made into its own separate model away from the 49 by 1961). The newer 3rd major design of the Sovereign grew bigger, more opulent and an even bigger staple of the “American dream” being driven by the rich and wealthy as well as the distinguished and classy it became THE dream car of the American dream. Now powered by a 410CI V8, it was bigger, faster and just far superior. With plenty of standard features as well as just as many options such as Ostrich cabin interior seats.







Driven by the rich and famous, and a symbol of the rest of the decade.
Here we have a recolourised Sovereign advert. (reuploaded I know hushhh)
