Silver Dawn Standard Steel Saloon.

It's very difficult to see the bonnet shut lines, but I don't think that this is a " converted" Bentley. It looks in need of some adjustment to the front bumper irons, hopefully the misalignment does not extend to the chassis. The two fixing bolts securing the bumper iron to the chassis rail on the right of the car as you look at it are probably loose and have allowed the bumper to droop on that side. Place a pad of some sort on the screw jack supplied with the car in order to protect the chrome, and use the jack to level the bumper - gently - tighten the bolts and replace the jack in its location in the boot. If this doesn't work, you've got problems.

6000 W was issued March-Oct 60 in Sheffield - no trace now and too new to be original for car.

Not quite.....
There were two versions of the bodywork, small boot and large boot, and two versions of the engine, 4257 and 4566 cc in line with the Mk VI and R-type Bentleys, changing in July 1951. The bodies changed in the third quarter of 1952. "Rolls-Royce policy is one of continuous improvement."

Whereas the Bentley had twin SU carburettors the Royce had to make do with a single Stromberg, later Zenith, instrument, and could not quite match the 100mph Bentley's performance. Left hand drive cars had a steering column gear change but as most of these had automatic transmission it didn't matter so much.
