The Mk. VI four-door standard steel sports saloon was the first post-war luxury car from Bentley. Announced in May 1946 and produced from 1946 to 1952, it was also the first car from Rolls-Royce with all-steel coachwork and the first complete car assembled and finished at their factory. These very expensive cars were a genuine success. These models had a shorter wheelbase chassis and the 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. In 1952, both Rolls-Royce Silver Dawn and Bentley Mk. VI standard steel bodies were modified to incorporate a boot of about twice the size and the result became known as the R-Type Bentley. Mk. VI engines and chassis were modified to provide higher performance and sold to be bodied by selected coachbuilders as the first Bentley Continentals.

This 1951 manufactured Bentley is finished in green with a beige leather interior. We are advised this right hand drive example runs well although the brakes are a bit sticky after the car has been standing for a while. Clearly some recommissioning is required but these handsome Bentleys are becoming increasingly popular and are well worth the time and investment. The car is supplied with a NOVA certificate for the new owner to register the car in the UK if required.
