The Rolls-Royce Silver Dawn is a car that was produced by
Rolls-Royce at their Crewe works between 1949 and 1955. It was the
first Rolls-Royce car to be offered with a factory built body which
it shared. along with its chassis. with the Bentley Mk. VI until
1952 and then the Bentley R-Type until production finished in 1955.
The car was first introduced as an export only model. The lefthand
drive models had a column gear shift. while righthand drives had a
floor gear shift by the door. A mere 760 were produced between 1949
and 1955. Earlier models up to circa May 1954 had a different
fascia (dashboard) from the Bentley Mk. VI and R-Type and were
fitted with a single exhaust system. The in-line six-cylinder
engine had overhead inlet and side exhaust valves and had a
capacity of 4. 57cc until 1951 when it was enlarged to 4. 66cc. The
carburettor was a single downdraught Stromberg until 1952 when it
was replaced by a Zenith. The suspension was independent at the
front using coil springs; at the rear the live axle used half
elliptic leaf springs. Servo assisted 12. 25" drum brakes were
hydraulically operated at the front but retained mechanical
operation at the rear. Although many cars were fitted with factory
built bodies. others were supplied to external coachbuilders.

This handsome Silver Dawn is finished in two-tone Sable over
Sand with Champagne Beige interior.

The car is in very good order and has clearly been lovingly
cared for and the current vendor is a very knowledgeable
Rolls-Royce enthusiast. Benefitting from automatic transmission and
described as being quiet. smooth and pleasant to drive. this Silver
Dawn's coachwork is in very good condition and the leather trim is
virtually unmarked. Supplied with a V5 registration document and a
good history file. this delightful Rolls-Royce Silver Dawn is ready
for someone to step in and enjoy.
