Classic Car Auctions says:

Great opportunity for a Bentley enthusiast looking for a project...

  • Running and driving, this Bentley was imported from the States in 2016
  • Our vendor describes the car as one he hasn't had the chance to bring back to its best
  • Appearing to have had an older restoration, it would not take much to bring her up to standard
  • It could now do with some internal finishing to roof lining and more
