1949 BENTLEY MK VI for sale
The owner listed B180EY as being a 1949 Freestone and Webb saloon. Bernard King. in his equally excellent book. "Bentley Mark VI. lists B180EY as having engine B90E. delivered April 1949 to its first owner. Capt. Andrew Mansel Talbot-Fletcher. with Freestone and Webb four door four light saloon. body no. 1498. design no. 3038. Freestone and Webb built 12 cars to design 3038. Capt. Talbot-Fletcher registered the car
with British registration number SS7340. so it would appear that the
car was re-registered. The "SS" registration number is an East Lothian number. and with only two letters and four numbers it was probably a number issued first in the early 1930s and then transferred by the
owner (Capt. Talbot-Fletcher) to his Mark VI when he got the car. I
would expect that that number was a "cherished number" and was transferred by Capt. Talbot-Fletcher to his next car when he traded in
the Mark VI. The "YOE" registration is a Birmingham registration
number ("OE). and with the combination of three letters and three numbers I would expect the number to have been issued in the late 1940s or early 1950s. The car was reported in the US in 2003. according to Bernard's book. but with no owner given.
