Another post-war luxury car in the 1:43 scale Oxford Automobile series is as seen here in the shape of the Rolls-Royce Silver Dawn. Produced at the company’s Crewe works, it was the first Rolls-Royce to feature a factory built body and was first offered as an export model aimed at the American market in particular and did not hit the home market until 1953. During its production period from 1949 to 1955 only 760 were made, with a price tag of just over £4700. With four doors and the option of a 4-speed manual or automatic gearbox, the full-size luxury car was a bit heavy on petrol at 15 mpg and had an average top speed of 94 miles an hour.
For our launch model, the Silver Dawn comes in a rich maroon and black two-tone scheme with tan interior seating and flooring. External trim is finished in silver except for the wheel centre detail which takes on the maroon body colour. Even the wing mirrors have been given a chrome finish. Registered KKZ 8582, the Silver Dawn with its Rolls-Royce standard steel body represented the difference from its Bentley counterpart but collaboration between the two companies already existed and they would be intertwined for decades to come.
