A remarkably fine example of the popular MKVI Bentley. this particular car is exceptional. in having had a total of £75. 00 spent on it since the mid 1980s. much of it within the last 10 years. This has included a total engine overhaul. radiator re-core. new brake cylinders. water pump. stainless exhaust. clutch. etc. a full re-spray to a high standard. re-chroming. a lovely red leather interior. and much more besides. The car is free of rust. and the underside is excellent and Waxoyl protected. Driven 400 miles to us without missing a beat! Very smart indeed. and ready to go.

Chassis No. B457DZ. Reg No. TML 926. £29. 00.

Snippets:

Delivered to F W J Bolton. his business Barrett & Bolton Ltd was at 126 Curtain Rd. London. the road takes its name from “The Curtain Theatre”. built around 1576. At one stage this was home to the company known as “Kings Men” which was part-owned by William Shakespeare. The earliest reference to “The Curteyne” is by a deed of sale dated the 20th Feb. 9 Eliz – which refers to the 9th year in reign of Elizabeth I – being 1567. There is a FWJ Bolton. a very keen Morris Minor Page owner who took part in many MCC Trials & in 1931 was awarded a Gold Medal at the MCC High Speed Trial for 63. 48 mph around Brooklands. By 1952 B457DZ was with F. W. Deptford of Hungate House. Emneth – previous occupiers of his home included Philip Vassar Hunter the inventor of the Buoyant Cable used in WWII against magnetic mines; Philip's father Josiah was a keen breeder of Shire Horses with such names as Hungate New Cut. Hungate Beauty & Hungate Brisk. In 1960 B457DZ was registered at Rocklands in Wilmslow which is a prime example of an Arts & Craft building – the movement spanned the period between 1860/1910 & was led by the artist & writer William Morris (1834/96).
