HIGHLIGHTS: Gorgeous rare 1954 Bentley R-Type! With just 2,323 ever produced, this is a unique example of a timeless design. With classic Crewe styling and a voluptuous interior, this Bentley would be an excellent choice for any Rolls-Royce/Bentley connoisseur looking to add to their collection.

BODY OVERVIEW: The body on this Bentley is straight and all the gorgeous body lines really stand out! Bentley styling of this era was top-notch, and the R-Type is no exception.

PAINT CONDITION OVERVIEW: Though this car is certainly not wearing its original paint, the current paint really looks great. With excellent depth and a glossy finish, the black and silver two-tone combination is an essential Bentley look.

INTERIOR CONDITION OVERVIEW: The interior is also in nice condition, with the seats being supple and intact wood trim. The photographs really speak for themselves. Sit down in this classic British automobile, and you'll head straight back in time to 1950s London where this car was sold new!

MECHANICAL OVERVIEW: Under the hood, this car shines cosmetically! It has been kept original-style, and the engine itself simply looks classy. Unfortunately, this car appears to have suffered head gasket failure and is being sold as is. It runs, but it runs poorly.

WHAT YOU'LL LOVE ABOUT THIS CAR: It's hard to beat a Bentley in this color combination!

WHAT YOU MIGHT HATE ABOUT THIS CAR: The simple fact that it needs mechanical repairs.

DOES IT NEED ANYTHING? This Bentley will possibly need a head gasket job done before it can be enjoyed.

WHAT BUYER IS LOOKING FOR THIS CAR? This car appeals to anyone looking to add a special something to their collection, or even to someone looking to get into classic Bentley ownership for the first time. If you know how to tinker, and want something to invest a little money into for a classy weekend cruiser, this R-Type just might be the car for you.
