Description

Thisrare 1947 Bentley Mk VI Sports Saloon was among the very first producedby Rolls-Royce/Bentley following WWII. It is based on a 1938 design butnot built until 1946 because Rolls-Royce and Bentley were makingSpitfires during the war years.
Navy blue and black exterior,straight 6 with original factory sunroof this Mark VI runs smoothly, ismechanically sound with records and receipts since I purchased it in2003. 104,000 mi. on original engine. Garage stored and maintained onlyby Bentley trained mechanics.
Imported to Canada in the 1970s,this Bentley Standard Sports Saloon features British right hand driveand a right-hand stick shift for the 4 speed transmission.
Onceadvertised as "The Silent Sports Car", it starts readily at the touch ofa push button and settles into a smooth, quiet idle. The transmissionshifts easily and the brakes are good. Steering effort is light and thecar handles well. This was the first Bentley designed to be driven byits owner, rather than a chauffeur.
The large sunroof allows thesun to highlight the beautiful burled wood dashboard. The instrumentsfunction as they should, all the lights work, including the drivinglights and center-mounted headlight.
As well as the originalEnglish registration plates (Cheshire, UK) I have BC Collector plates onthe car as it is all original (including RCA Victor radio). Recent workincludes the front end (king pins, bushings), new brakes and I had theengine mounts replaced.
Included with the car is the original tool kit, car cover, a shop service manual, and an owner's manual.
