Bentley Motors Limited was founded on 18th January 1919 by
Walter Owen Bentley known as W. O. Bentley or just 'W. O. ' Bentley
had been previously known for his range of rotary aero-engines in
World War I. the most famous being the Bentley BR1 as used in later
versions of the Sopwith Camel. After the war W. O. Bentley designed
and made production cars that won the Le Mans 24 hours in 1924 and
following models which repeated those successes each June 1927. br/>1928. 1929 and 1930. The R-Type is the second series of post-war
Bentleys. replacing the Mk. VI. Essentially a larger-boot version
of the Mk. VI. the R-type is regarded by some as a stop-gap before
the introduction of the S-Series cars in 1955. As with its
predecessor. a standard body was available as well as coachbuilt
versions by firms including H. J. Mulliner. Park Ward and Freestone
and Webb amongst others.

This Standard Steel bodied R-Type is finished in two-tone black
over ivory with light beige leather trim and is fitted with a half
length sunroof. The 56. 00 recorded miles appears to be genuine and
is substantiated by good history folder. although the mileage is
not warranted. Owned by the vendor since 2001. this is a very good
example and one that has clearly been looked after in the correct
manner. The 4566cc engine is very quiet and smooth in operation and
PMB 272 drives with ease on the open road. She has all the original
tools in the boot and comes with the handbook and workshop manual.
The underside is wax-oiled and the chassis weathershield remain in
place. Supplied with a V5 registration document. Bentley R-Types
have enjoyed a resurgence in values of late. this one is
attractively priced given the condition.
