1954 Bentley R type automatic in two tone blue.
First registered in October 1954 sold by Jack Barclay Mayfair.London
Exported to Texas in 1956...from there to
Australia in the mid 1980's and
Subsequently to Sweden in 2006, repatriated to England on 6 October 2015 which, by chance was exactly 59 years to the day from when it left England. Nearly 60 years in hot climates accounts for the particularly fine chassis and under body condition.

In 2012 it was recommissioned
Having New:
Brake shoes ..cylinders...and flexible hoses,
Radiator core and hoses,
Fuel pump,
Re-trimmed in deep cream leather, matching headlining,
brown carpets
The recently restored woodwork can only be described as little short of fabulous.

I purchased her in October 2015..and drove over 800 miles
without fault from Sweden to my home in North Wales.

Since my purchase she has had
5 New radial tyres
Discreet flashing indicators
2x 12volt negative earth accessory sockets for sat nav and phone charging
Front spotlights
CD radio
Oil and filter changes, plugs etc.
The bodywork presents very well with excellent paintwork complimenting the flowing lines and the chassis is excellent.
She drives very nicely and is greatly admired, having been used for pleasure and on many Classic car rallies.

She is garaged at my home in Colwyn Bay North Wales.
5 minutes from junction 22 of the A55
