"A very fine car that has turned 70 years old."

Description

After World War II, Bentley began manufacturing pressed steel bodies for the first time. Until 1952, 5,200 cars of this kind were produced. However, coachbuilders continued to manufacture cars with handcrafted aluminum. This is such a rare body that was made by Freestone and Webb. It has the large 4.5-liter engine that was introduced in 1952, in contrast to the previous 4.25-liter engine. According to information, only seven examples of this model were produced. It has only traveled just over 80 000 miles since it was built cover 70 years ago. During all these years it has had only five owners, all of whom have taken excellent care of it.

The first three owners were from England. Then, in 1996, the well-known company Peter Fisher did a complete overhaul of the vehicle and then sold it to a Swedish individual residing in Switzerland. The current owner acquired the car in the year 2000 following the previous owner's passing.

What sets these custom-built MK VI cars apart from the standard models are, among other things, their elegantly sweeping body lines and special interiors with beautiful woodwork, as well as picnic tables with mirrors.

An opportunity to purchase a exceptionally well-maintained, handcrafted Sport saloon. Low mileage and only 5 owners over 70 years. Extensive documentation is included.

  • At this auction, many vehicles have been included in car collections and have been stored (mothballed) for a long time. For this reason, they are described from a collector's perspective and may need technical reviews and maintenance service - oil, battery replacement, new tires, brake review, etc. - before they can be used. .
  • During the auction days information about a vehicle may be updated up to the day before the auction ends. When you bid at the end of the auction period - and also if you have made an earlier bid - we therefore ask you to read the descriptions carefully, in case something has been changed due to new information.
