1951 Bentley Mk. VI Saloon by James Young

The Bentley Mark VI was the first post-war luxury car from Bentley produced from 1946 to 1952, it was also the first car from Rolls-Royce with factory coachwork but chassis were still also supplied to independent coachbuilders. The chassis and engine went on to be used as the basis of those in the Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith of 1946 and Silver Dawn of 1949. The factory bodies were made by Pressed Steel Ltd of Coventry and sent to the Bentley works at Crewe for painting and fitting out with traditional wood and leather. They featured rear hinged ""suicide"" doors at the front and a sliding sunroof. Those buyers with a more discerning palette and deeper pockets also had the option of using one of the many coachbuilders available at the time such as James Young Ltd.  This was a British coach building company started in 1863 in London Road, Bromley originally producing horse-drawn carriages. In 1908 they made their first car body for the local Member of Parliament. From 1921 they bodied several Bentley cars as well others such as Alfa Romeo, Sunbeam and Rolls-Royce. The company had grown sufficiently to take their own stand at the 1925 London Motor Show. As well as individual commissions James Young also fitted some standard designs to cars including Talbot and Sunbeam and in 1937 the company was bought by London Rolls-Royce dealer Jack Barclay. It is hard to find un-restored examples of these coachbuilt Bentleys these days but this particular car is ready for some individual treatment. Presented in burgundy with a contrasting grey leather interior, this James Young bodied Bentley comes with a UK registration document and current MoT test certificate. Although the bodywork requires some attention, the engine and transmission is described by the owner as very good throughout. Reasonably reserved and ready for the next stage of its life.
