See all the Images for this Car
This Bentley is one of only 16 Mark VI Coupes bodied by London-based coachbuilder Park Ward. Completed in late 1950, this beautiful example was delivered to K.J.T. Bone and registered as AHC900 in Sussex, England. In the 1960s, it was imported to the US and became a loyal attendee at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance® while residing in the Bay Area for more than 30 years. In 2004 and 2006, this Mark VI participated in the Pebble Beach® Motoring Classic, a 1,000-mile odyssey from Washington to California, which, according to the consignor, it completed without a single “fail to proceed” moment! Repainted in 2005 in its original Chicle and Copra Drab livery, this 70-year-old classic has never been comprehensively restored, including its rear leather seat. It sports charming semaphore turn indicators, sweeping lines, and a right-of-driver gearshift – facilitating the American driver. This coachbuilt luxury car is accompanied by a prodigious binder of documentation, including an extensive service history with details such as recent renewal of tires and battery. Also included is an original Park Ward booklet, a tool kit, and a manual that outlines driving instructions for the chauffeur. Rare, charismatic, and ultimately collectible, this lovely Mark VI Bentley bodied by Park Ward, exudes the sophistication of a bygone era and is ideal for touring and exhibition.
