1950 Bentley MKVI Special 12,340 (Not Warranted) £22,000.00 + buyers premium


This Bentley MKVI Special was originally commissioned by Alex Tanner. Based on a MK VI Chassis, the engine was moved back and replaced with a B61 4.9 LTR motor, BDC 292:1 CWP and Harry Rose body.
The present owner further improved the car, fitting doors and polycarbonate screen. The brakes and servo were refurbished. The seats and lights were also upgraded.

In November 2016, the vehicle was professionally serviced and the front suspension was modified in preparation for a long distance tour. After that the car was shipped to New Zealand. Unfortunately during the time the car was being shipped, the vendor fell ill and was unable to attend the event but luckily found a volunteer to take his place. The car completed the tour of two islands and was shipped back to Southampton in April where it was met by the vendor and driven back to Devon.
The vendor’s partner has told us that this is a desperately sad sale but unfortunately is necessary due to the heath reasons mentioned above.
