Four years into what would amount to seven-year run, the 1953 Rolls Royce Silver Dawn was released as the fifth iteration of its model. Like many of the manufacturers luxury cars, this four-door, full-size saloon featured a powerful engine, precision engineering all around, and was built with a chassis designed to accommodate a host of various coachwork variants. More than anything, the 1953 Rolls Royce Silver Dawn was a testament to the companys enduring status as Great Britains foremost manufacturer of high-performance luxury vehicles. Gunning along the motorways with a 4.6-liter straight-6 engine, the Silver Dawn could achieve a top speed of well over 90 miles per hour.
But it wasnt just the motorways of England that were graced by the Silver Dawns fast-turning wheels. The model was intended for release in the export marketplace, which meant that many of the 760 units produced throughout those seven years were right-hand shifters, a difference which resulted in a few minor design changes from one to the next. And while Charles Rolls and Henry Royce had set out in 1906 to produce the very best in automobile engineering, many of the companys units would inevitably be coupled with bodies produced by several famous coachbuilders. Two of these, Park Ward and H.J. Mulliner & Co., would eventually merge into the larger Rolls Royce operation. Another notable aspect of the 1953 Rolls Royce Silver Dawn was the configurable nature of its various bodies, with limousine, sedan, and drop-head variants dotting roads on both sides of the Atlantic.
