Bentley R type 1954

General description : This 1954 Bentley R-Type is a highly prized Left-Hand-Drive version with a rare and desirable automatic transmission. It's also an excellent original driver quality example. Chassis number B104LWH. Tan and brown older paint certainly with scratches and marks, but perhaps acceptable for general and touring use. Original tan leather interior that with care can be retained. The wood will need refinishing. While the motor does run well, it would probably benefit from a servicing before being considered truly roadworthy. This desirable LHD R-Type could be restored but it's perhaps more sensible to just fettle and use it. Offered with a very complete set of tools and just out of very long-term family ownership.  Price: $36,500 

1954 Bentley R type is listed for sale on ClassicDigest in New York by Gullwing Motor Cars for $36500.

About Bentley
Before becoming a mere subsidiary to Rolls-Royce, Bentley was an independent Automaker famous for the "fastest lorries in the world" e.i Bentley 4½ Litre.

Good ol' Bentley boys (A group of wealthy British motorists, mainly Woolf Barnato, Sir Henry "Tim" Birkin, steeplechaser George Duller, aviator Glen Kidston, S.C.H. "Sammy" Davis, and Dr Dudley Benjafield ) -in their trusty Bentley cars- took four consecutive victories at 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1924, 1927, 1928, 1929, 1930

In 1931 Bentley was taken over British Central Equitable Trust that later proved to be a front for Rolls-Royce Limited. Unhappy with his role at Rolls-Royce, W.O. Bentley left the company when his contract expired in 1935 duly joining Lagonda. This was beginning of which ultimately led Bentley cars to become more or less badge-engineered Rolls-Royce.
