Norfolk, VA

This 1953 Bentley R-Type saloon is a left-hand-drive example made for the US market and is powered by a 4.6-liter inline-6 mated to a 4-speed automatic gearbox. Finished in Royal Garnet over Cream with Claret colored Connolly leather hides, it is one of 2,320 R-Types produced between 1952 and 1955. It was the recipient of a no-expense-spared restoration under previous ownership and has resided in a private collection since complete.

The exterior features a polished grille, rear-hinged front doors, Lucas fog lights, chrome over-riders, a sliding sunroof, and dual fender, mounted chrome side mirrors. The bumpers, brightwork, and trim have all been re-chromed and refinished.

Features include a Mohair headliner, factory sliding sunroof, and the addition of modern air conditioning.The three-spoke steering wheel features a center horn button and rotary control on the hub that allows the driver to adjust ride stiffness. Smiths instrumentation includes an analog clock and a 110 mph reverse-sweep speedometer. There are 22,566 miles shown on the five-digit odometer, although true mileage is unknown.The 4.6 litre inline-6 has an iron block with an aluminum head, and it is fueled by dual SU carburetors and equipped with an electric choke. During the restoration, the wiring and electronics were upgraded to a 12-volt system. Shifting is handled by a 4-speed automatic transmission.
