1953 Bentley R Type Continenal H J Mulliner For Sale

Finished in Original Black with Beige Hide Interior.

This wonderful and most iconic motor vehicle was built and completed on the 13th November 1952. She was then despatched to the main selling agent " Garage de l'Athenee" of Switzerland and arrived there on the 17th February 1953. The car comes with the popular combination of Manual gear box and light weight sports front seats.

In Brief......The first custodian acquired the vehicle on the 21st July 1953 where she made Switzerland her home until 1st January 1955 where upon she made her way to the USA and remained there for many years. She spent eight years in Canada before returning to the states in 1980 where in 1996 a full body-off restoration was finally completed. The car returned to UK shores in 2003 from Seattle where she stayed in the loving care of its last owner for some fifteen years.

Over the years there have been some alterations and modifications such as the fitment of air conditioning but during its restoration project in 1996 the car was refitted with its original Bentley grill and tail lamps. She drives beautifully and handles just as well , she is in lovely condition but not concours, the interior is in stunning condition and she is very user friendly. She already makes for a superb example and once all necessary workshop preparations are complete will be ready to drive and thoroughly enjoy. Accompanying the car is a comprehensive history file with original hand book, Service Data book and wiring diagrams. To fully appreciate this magnificent motor vehicle we would like to invite you to contact us and we would be delighted to talk to you in more detail about this truly superb and rare motor car.
