A smooth driver, not shiny but shows a good patina for casual use.
 
Appeared in 1946, the first new model from Rolls-Royce Motors was Bentley Mk VI, which had a company's first standard steel saloon body. The engine had the same bore and stroke as the pre-war Mk V model's 4 1/4 litre (4250cc) inline six. However, the design was renewed for Mk VI. It was based on the "B60" inline F head (overhead valve intake and side valve exhaustion) which they designed for military vehicles in 1938 just before the war.
 
After the twin sister, Rolls-Royce Silver Dawn came on the market, and the engine was expanded to 4566cc followed by rear boot enlarged which was named R-Type as a minor progressive change of Mk.VI.
 
The car in stock is RHD with a right side shift lever for 4-speed manual transmission and SU carburettors fitted. Great appeal for Bentley enthusiasts. Mechanically excellent including a good motor and transmission. Not for a shiny car fan but this aged patina tells a feel of classic Bentley. Can be a nice project car for a cosmetic restoration as well.
