Classic Car Overview

HIGHLIGHTS: Gorgeous rare 1954 Bentley R-Type! With classic Crewe styling and loaded with options, this Bentley would be an excellent choice for any Rolls-Royce/Bentley connoisseur looking to expand on their collection. BODY OVERVIEW: This Bentley has been under the same ownership for the last 30 years, and has been restored, repaired, and maintained during that time. The body is straight and all the gorgeous body lines really stand out! PAINT CONDITION OVERVIEW: Though this car is certainly not wearing its original paint, the current paint is an older repaint and is showing some age. Though it still has a nice shine to it, there are scratches throughout. A good buffing should go a long way! INTERIOR CONDITION OVERVIEW: The interior was restored along with the rest of the car many years ago, and the interior wood was recently refinished. If you are familiar with these cars, you know the cost of having interior wood repaired and replaced! The seats are in nice condition, and the rear sunshade is functioning correctly. MECHANICAL OVERVIEW: Under the hood, this car really shines! It has been kept original-style, and the engine itself simply looks classy. The factory flashlight is still in place on the firewall, and the engine bay as a whole is very clean. It fires right up, and runs as quiet as a mouse! WHAT YOULL LOVE ABOUT THIS CAR: This is a 1954 Bentley R-Type. Whats not to love? WHAT YOU MIGHT HATE ABOUT THIS CAR: The color combination is not for everyone, but we think it looks great on this car. DOES IT NEED ANYTHING? This Bentley is an older restoration that has seen use over the years, including being transported to Dubai on more than one occasion for car shows. It could use a few tweaks, such as having the radio and semaphore signals repaired, but overall it is in very respectable condition for a car of this vintage. WHAT BUYER IS LOOKING FOR THIS CAR? This car appeals to anyone looking to add a special something to their collection, or even to someone looking to get into classic Bentley ownership for the first time. Whether youre looking for a Bentley to enjoy on the weekends, or to take to the absolute next level restoration-wise, this car could be your pick!
