1954 Bentley R-Type Saloon. A totally original example of this true British icon finished in Masons Black over Shell Grey with a beautiful red leather interior. The car was originally supplied by H R Owen back in 1954 for a Mr D Robinson of Rossington Produce ltd. It was then sold on to a Mr Anthony R Davis Of City Timber Ltd. Mr Davis kept the car until late 1964 when a Colonel H S Bristowe purchased the car from S P Broughton & Company Of Cheltenham. He then kept the car until 1995 when it passed on to his son Richard Bristowe. He kept the car right up to 2014 when it was sold to the present owner.
The Bentley is in excellent mechanical condition after just having a sympathetic engine rebuild with new pistons and rings and starts on the button. The engine is silky smooth as one would expect from a Bentley and has plenty of power. The automatic gearbox is excellent changing through the gears smoothly and cleanly. The brakes were overhauled this year receiving a reconditioned brake servo and master cylinder and has done very little mileage since. The Body is in very good condition with a few age related marks to body as one would expect. The interior has had some work with the leather been re-coloured and treated and is now in lovely condition and certainly complements the stunningly restored walnut dashboard. door capping's and picnic tables. While we were at it we fitted a brand new wine and tan carpet set which really finishes the interior off. It has a complete tool kit and comes with reams of paper work showing the cars history.
The paperwork includes many invoices showing the work done to the Bentley between 1962 – 1995 totalling £5323. 19. There also is correspondence between Col Bristowe and Bentley and S P Broughton regarding the purchase of the R Type and various other items. Showing in one of the letters is the fact that in July of 1960 at 62. 26 miles a fully reconditioned engine from Bentley was fitted. This Bentley is a true British icon of luxury motor cars. and will give its new owner many years of happy motoring.
