Vintage and Prestige are proud to offer this 1949 Bentley MKVI Standard Steel Saloon For Sale.

The policy of rationalisation begun in the late 1930s continued at Rolls-Royce after the war with the introduction of standard bodywork. In a break from the coachbuilt tradition this was made of pressed steel panels welded together. The new 'standard steel' body was available at first only on the MkVI Bentley.

A separate chassis was retained, the same basic design being built in three different wheelbase lengths, that of the MkVI (and Rolls-Royce Silver Dawn) measuring 10' exactly.

Notable features were independent front suspension and hydraulic front brakes. Powering the range was a new 4,257cc six-cylinder engine featuring inlet-over-exhaust valve gear and breathing through a Stromberg carburettor (Rolls-Royce) or twin SUs (Bentley).

To start and drive this MK VI is as you would expect, simply magnificent. The engine runs quietly and smoothly, never missing a beat, she glides along the road effortlessly. There have been recent works by the world renowned Frank Dale and Stepsons, the quality of workmanship is clear from moment you press the starter button.

To the road the handling benefits from the independent front suspension and the hydraulic brakes make stopping a lot easier than the MkVI predecessors, this lovely MK VI really is a pleasure to drive.

The exterior is beautifully finished in a solid Grey, there are ¼ wheel spats to the rear and the colour is broken up by the chrome finishings. There is a centre spot lamp to the front and the owner has fitted white wall tyres to enhance the look.

The interior is in excellent condition, the stone coloured leather is like new and has been finished to a very high standard. The seats are fluted to the front and rear, the colour contrasts the exterior perfectly. All wood is in excellent condition and it would appear to have been re-veneered recently.
