Bentley Mk 6

Specification

Vehicle: Bentley Mark 6

Date: 1952

Engine: 4.7 litre

Bentley Motors Limited is a British manufacturer and marketer of luxury cars and SUVs—and a subsidiary of the Volkswagen Group since 1998. Headquartered in Crewe, England, the company was founded as Bentley Motors Limited by W. O. The Bentley Mark VI is an automobile from Bentley which was produced from 1946 to 1952. This shorter wheelbase chassis and engine was a variant of the Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith of 1946 and, with the same standard steel body, became the cautiously introduced Silver Dawn of 1949.

Specifications: 4 door, rear wheel drive, side exhaust and overhead intake valves. This model has a 4 speed manual gearbox, with the gear shift on the right hand side, by the driver’s door, so the chauffer couldn’t touch his ladyship’s legs by mistake when changing gear.

Original condition: on the road and driving, looking in fairly nice condition after the windshield replacement… but all was not as it seemed.

History



There is not much known about its original owners. Today it is part of a wedding fleet, belonging to Country Style Wedding Cars, of Elsted, West Sussex.
