Beautiful 1952 Bentley Mark VI road car. Inspected and driven regularly. Obviously stored indoors. This is not a barn find but rather a clean and well cared for exquisite gun metal grey with light grey interior example of old world hand made British elegance. It's been with the same owner for quite some time. All systems are functioning. The car is original and unmolested. This car is complete with an excellent and fully functioning interior. nice glass and chrome and very presentable  paint finish. The smooth running 4. 3 Liter inline six is a mechanical marvel and the 4 speed manual shifts with ease. The car needs nothing to use daily right now. It would be perfect for wedding and event use. advertising. movie making. the weekender show circuit. or everyday driving. Here is what Haggerty says about these cars:

History of the 1946-1952 Bentley Mark VI

As Britain adopted the “export or perish” motto in the immediate post-war years. Rolls-Royce designed a model aimed at a broader American market. The Bentley Mark VI was the result. and Rolls-Royce probably owes its survival to the model.

In 1946. Rolls-Royce moved its production from Derby to Crewe and began building complete cars. The first new Bentley was the Mark VI. based on the 1939 Park Ward-designed Mark V. The new car used the same independent front suspension and an inlet-over-exhaust valve six-cylinder engine of 4. 57 cc. which was increased to 4. 66 cc in 1951. The cars had centralized lubrication. and all were fitted with four-speed manual gearboxes.

The Mark VI was the first Rolls-Royce produced with a steel body (now referred to as “Standard Steel” models). and all factory-bodied cars were four-door sedans with sliding sunroofs. Coachbuilders such as Park Ward. James Young. H. J. Mulliner. Freestone and Webb and even Graber. Pininfarina. and Saoutchik on the continent also offered drophead coupes. limousines. sedancas and other exotic interpretations. The Mark VI sold for 4. 38 British pounds. including purchase tax. which was about 12 times the cost of a new Ford. In all 5. 01 would be built over a six-year period before the model was replaced by the longer and more elegant Bentley R-Type in 1952.

The Bentley Mark VI standard steel saloon compares favorably to modern iron. with 150 hp from the larger engine and top speeds around 100 mph. The leather seats. walnut veneers and no-nonsense instruments are tasteful and timeless. Despite the somber Aunt Emily styling. this is a responsive. nimble. quiet. and torquey road car. The Bentley Mark VI is one of the few cars from this period that can comfortably be driven long distances.

The cost of restoring a Mark VI saloon can be several times the car's market value; however. once repaired. a Mark VI is relatively inexpensive to maintain and can ably serve as a daily driver. As such. an honest Bentley Mk VI can be a good introduction to classic motoring. Of course. the same does not hold true for a car with needs. so shop with patience and diligence. and check for service records whenever possible. Private seller/owner. Email for more information
