SUMMARY

Stately Mark VI clothed by Freestone & Webb in their elegant 'Design 3406' four-door, six-light coachwork.

DESCRIPTION

  • Dating from 1951, this elegant Mark VI (#B10LJ) continues to present well in Mason Black over Dark Olive Green with a gold coachline echoed on the Olive Green wheel rims
  • Long established coachbuilder, Freestone & Webb of Willesden, North London created bespoke bodywork for 106 Mark VI Bentleys of which 18 were finished to their design reference 3046/C. #B10LJ was further specified with privacy glass and electric rear windows (the front ones are manual quick release)
  • The car's first owner is recorded as Lieutenant-Colonel W.E.Frieze of the European Wool Co. Ltd who kept the Bentley from June 1951 until 1969. It was subsequently enjoyed by Ernest Hilton until 1972, Cyril Voce to 2004, Timothy Lovell to 2018 and finally our vendor. All this information is included in the car's fascinating history file
  • Described by our vendor as predominantly unrestored but well maintained and benefitting from an engine rebuild in 1998
  • The interior is comfortable and has been retrimmed at some point in a lovely shade of Sage Green piped in black
  • It's supplied with its original large and small tools, early handbook and a copy of Bernard King’s book on the model, Complete Classics No. 9, picturing B10L and signed by the author
  • With a current indicated mileage of 87,468 over 71 years, this venerable Bentley appears to have enjoyed a fairly gentle life and is said to drive rather well for its advancing years
