The Bentley Mk. VI was the first post-war luxury car from
Bentley. produced from 1946 to 1952. It was also the first car from
Rolls-Royce with factory coachwork although chassis were still also
supplied to independent coachbuilders. The chassis and engine went
on to be used as the basis of those in the Rolls-Royce Silver
Wraith of 1946 and Silver Dawn of 1949. The factory bodies were
made by Pressed Steel Ltd of Coventry and sent to the Bentley works
at Crewe for painting and fitting out with traditional wood and
leather. They featured rear hinged 'suicide' doors at the front and
a sliding sunroof.

This standard steel example. first registered in the summer of
1948. is presented in black and silver with a cream leather
interior. The body work and chassis are all in good order and the
interior is complete with no significant rips or tears. however
would benefit from a tidy-up. With just one former keeper from new. br/>it is a good honest example of this early post-war luxury car which
can be used or restored. coupled with an original tool kit and
history file including the V5 registration document. Although the
body and interior may require some attention. the engine and
transmission is described by the owner as very good and this
example is reasonably reserved- ready for the next stage of its
life.
