MK VI

Bentley MK VI

Shortly before the war Bentley presented the MK V and it became the basis for the MK VI which was introduced in 1946. This was the first time one could order a complete car from Bentley! But they also still sold many chassis for customized designs.

Our Bentley MK VI Cabriolet was built in 1949 and was tuned as a “Drophead Coupe (DHC)” by the body shop Park Ward. Its roof is electric. The first owner was A.J. Brown in England and in 1977 this magnificent convertible was sold to the US. In 1986, it was purchased by a passionate collector, a musician with the Philadelphia Symphony Orchestra. At that time, the Bentley was restored and no expense spared. It was its owner’s wish for this classic convertible to return to England. Starting in 2007, this rare oldtimer was been driving under the British flag again but is now German owned and registered in Germany and ready to find a new home!

Bentley MK VI

Since 1946 there was a new Bentley on the market based on engines that had been developed in 1938. The body design was based on the Bentley MK V, which was only sold in small numbers due tp the war. Another novelty was the standard steel body.

Our Bentley MK VI by James Young was characterized as a “Fixed Head Coupé de Luxe”. Its first owner, Mr Percy Cecil Henderson, a business owner from Essex bought the exclusive Coupé from car merchant Jack Barclay in London. The historic English documents list five owners. Since 1966 the Oldtimer was in the Netherlands and is now in German hands. Years ago this very rare car was completely overhauled. The Bentley runs very well, and although the opulent interior shows some wear and tear, it is still in good condition. Its weakest feature is the paint which has been considered when we priced the car and we would be happy to offer the Coupe with a new coat a paint. James Young’s signature features like elegant design and superior wood craftsmanship are very visible in this special classic car!
