1952 Bentley 4.6 Mk 6 (Only 62,000 Miles) For Sale

http://www.roberthughes.co.uk/stocklist.html
This astoundingly genuine Bentley remained in the hands of the original family until 2010 and came with an abundance of old paperwork including the original factory order, purchase invoice and correspondence, buff- log book and period photograph copies featuring the car at holiday destinations dating from the 1950’s. Used little but often over the decades, the present mileage is 62,000 from new, and when the family parted with the car, it was completely unmolested, thereby providing the next and last owner the ideal basis to rejuvenate it under our guidance to a near- immaculate standard whilst being mindful not to ‘over- restore’ the vehicle. The faded, original paint was stripped to metal and repainted very well. Some re- chroming was necessary and new door rubbers were painstakingly fitted so the doors still push shut correctly. The interior is beautiful, with woodwork, headlining, carpets and door panels and carpets all original. The leather presented a quandary due to its excellent and supple condition apart from two front sections which were damaged, but years of perseverance were rewarded by the miraculous discovery of an original old- stock Connolly hide in the same colour which has now been expertly trimmed to replace these panels, and it blends with the original beautifully. With the rare and most sought after ‘big bore’ engine and synchromesh gearbox, this car drives with the tightness of a low mileage car which has never suffered neglect. The boot area and under- bonnet area (with original tools and inspection lamps present) is all superb and ready to show. Even the original ‘Gothic’ peak number plates have been dismantled and re-polished with great care. As well as the standard radiator ‘flying B’ mascot, this Bentley comes with a rare Union Jack flag and mast in miniature which was a fashionable accessory for the 1953 Coronation celebration. The ultimate sports saloon in its time, and one which boasts a commanding turn of speed mid- range, this still holds title as the most compact production Bentley so it is a very practical and easily stored classic with huge presence. Finished in Black with Tan Leather.
