Saloon
Coachwork: Hooper
Rolls-Royce introduced all newly designed cars in 1946: the Silver Dawn, Silver Wraith and Mark VI Bentley.

These cars incorporated an all-new 4.25 liter inline six engine with overhead intake and side exhaust valves, commonly referred to as an F head design. These were among the most reliable, durable and easiest to work on engines made by Rolls-Royce.

In 1955 these models, except the Silver Wraith, were replaced by the Silver Cloud and Si Bentley utilizing the same engine enlarged to 4.9 liters. The Silver Cloud and Si Bentley were identical but for the radiator shell and nameplates.

Production continued until 1959 when the Silver Cloud II and Bentley S2 were introduced, which were basically identical except for a new V8 engine. Total production of the S1 was 3107. All had standard steel bodies made by Rolls-Royce, except 121 which had custom coachwork.

This car has a Hooper coach-built saloon body, one of just nine with the Design No. 8497. This styling incorporated the new cutout spats introduced at the 1957 Earls Court Motor Show in London. The original owner was George Matthey of Johnson Matthey & Co. Ltd., which refined precious metals.

The present owner found the car at auction in 1994. It is debuting in 2014 after an eight-and-a-half year restoration.
