Informatie van de verkoper

Model HistoryThe R Type is the second series of post-war Bentleys produced, replacing the Mark VI. During development it was referred to as the Bentley Mark VII, the chassis cards for these cars describe them as Bentley 7. The R Type name which is now usually applied stems from chassis series RT. The front of the saloon model was identical to the Mark VI, but the boot (trunk) was almost doubled in capacity. Both a standard body as well as coachbuilt versions were available. Other than the radiator grilles and the carburation there was little difference between the standard Bentley R Type and the Rolls-Royce Silver Dawn. The R Type was the more popular marque, with some 2500 units manufactured during its run, compared to the Silver Dawn’s 760. The engine displacement was approximately 4½ litres, as fitted to later versions of the Mark VI. An automatic choke was fitted to the R-type's carburettor. The attachment of the rear springs to the chassis was altered in detail between the Mark VI and the R Type. A 4-speed manual transmission was standard with a 4-speed automatic option becoming standard on later cars. This model here comes with the manual transmission.
This Example
This car is a very beautiful and original Bentley R Type Saloon. It was delivered new by W. Watson & Co. Ltd. to J.B. Ritchie, one of the directors of Heron & Brearley Ltd. on the Isle of Man. The car features a elegant two-tone grey paint job, with a red leather interior. This example sports the 4-speed manual transmission. In the early 80's the car was sold to Sweden and in 2000 it was sold to a German owner with a mileage of 45.451.
The car resides in a stunning original condition, and comes with a nice history and documentation.
