This model has a 4.25 litre 6 cylinder engine with the famous "trouser leg" RH manual gear-change. This car has belonged to very enthusiastic past owners who have rebuilt the cylinder head, carburettors, front suspension, brakes, exhaust etc. etc. Everything works, including the Bijur chassis lubrication system, clock and rear blind. This car drives superbly. If you are looking for an excellent well maintained MK Vl Bentley, here is a lovely example to consider.
