This is a stunning creation. First time on the market in 38 Yrs. On the 12th May 1985 our clients purchased the 1947 Bentley Mk6 Sedan in good running order and the project begun. Fast forward some 5 Yrs whilst in London they purchased the newly published book " Bentley Specials and Special Bentleys " and from this point the seed was sown of converting this stately Bentley into a competitive race car. Our client then went on a fact finding mission, also joining the Bentley Drivers Club in the UK who had many useful contacts in regards to the design and building of his masterpiece. Nothing was left to chance with this car with every component subjected to a detailed inspection and replaced or rebuilt if necessary This car comes with some amazing history including a 100 page dossier on the purchase, build, design & specifications as well Records start with the order placed on the Bentley factory at Crewe in 1947, continues with all factory worksheets and reports during its manufacture, and all ownership papers since delivery from factory in 1947. Matching serial numbers of components from manufacture to present. Total chassis-up rebuild during last few years and redevelopment to touring/competition Bentley standards, under consultancy of leading UK Bentley development engineer and guidelines of Bentley Drivers Club UK. Re-built to exacting standards. Very fast. Unique arrangement of original suspension controls to vary from race to highway suspension. Gear shift outboard. P. All upgraded parts from Flying Spares, Bentley Division UK. Roll bar, required for racing, easily removable for touring, built to CAMS specifications by Bond Roll Bars.
