Classic Car Overview

1953 Bentley R Type Saloon The Bentley R Type is the second series of post-war Bentley automobiles, replacing the Mark VI. Essentially a larger-boot version of the Mk VI, the R type is regarded by some as a stop-gap before the introduction of the S series cars in 1955. As with its predecessor, a standard body was available as well as coachbuilt versions by firms including H. J. Mulliner & Co., Park Ward, Harold Radford, Freestone and Webb, Carrosserie Worblaufen and others. Other than the radiator grilles and the carburation there was little difference between the standard Bentley R Type and the Rolls-Royce Silver Dawn. The R Type was the more popular marque, with some 2,500 units manufactured during its run to the Silver Dawns 760. Offered is a beautiful 1953 Bentley R Type in traditional British Gray and Black two-tone paint with matching Gray leather interior. The Bentley is powered by an iron-block/aluminum-head straight-6 engine that fires immediately and runs quietly and smoothly. The transmission is a 4-speed manual that engages without struggle or hesitation. The suspension is independent at front with elliptic leaf springs at the rear. Brakes are hydraulic drums at both front and rear. The odometer shows 67,190 miles with no evidence of any rust or repair. The leather and carpets are nearly flawless. The Bentley is out of a large and local Pennsylvania collection of fine automobiles. With a top speed of nearly 103 mph, the Bentley Saloon was the high-performance luxury sedan of its time.
