The two decades between 1945 and 1965 saw some remarkable motor cars emerge from the new Rolls-Royce factory at Crewe. The Mark VI Bentley was the first model to be built entirely by Rolls-Royce, using a body supplied by Pressed Steel, although coachbuilt cars were still available. The Silver Dawn followed in 1949, and the entirely new Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud and Bentley S-series arrived in 1955.This book is the essential companion to these cars. It reveals how the various models altered through the course of production. Drawing on factory records, parts lists, catalogues and other data, the author has provided a meticulous survey of the standard steel cars built at Crewe.
