€20,000 - €30,000


Delivered new to England, interesting original owner
Stately two-tone black-and-silver colour scheme

First delivered in March of 1950, this Mark VI boasts its original saloon coachwork and was originally finished painted black, but now wears attractive, two-tone black-and-silver paintwork over a grey leather interior. Delivered new to its native England, its first owner was noted as being Arthur Croft of Crofts (Engineers) Ltd of Bradford. Mr Croft grew his family business into one of the largest manufacturers of power transmission equipment in the world. Three years after taking delivery, he was knighted for his accomplishments in business.

Passing through an owner in the US before being exported to Portugal, its older restoration presents well throughout. Stately, luxurious, and beautifully appointed, these cars are some of Bentley’s most well-regarded post-war automobiles, and it is easy to see why.



Entregue novo em Inglaterra a um ilustre primeiro dono

Faustosa combinação em dois tons de preto e prata

Entregue novo em Inglaterra, em março de 1950, este Mark VI teve como primeiro dono o distinto Arthur Croft da Crofts (Engineers) Ltd, de Bradford. O Sr. Croft desenvolveu a empresa da família, que se tornou um dos maiores fabricantes do mundo de equipamento para transmissão de energia. Três anos depois de lhe ser entregue este Bentley, foi condecorado pelos seus feitos enquanto empresário. O Bentley ostenta ainda a sua carroçaria original, que estava inicialmente lacada a preto. Exibe agora uma atraente combinação de dois tons de preto e cinza prata, com interior em pele cinzenta.

Passando por um dono nos EUA, antes de ser enviado para Portugal, apresenta-se num bom estado geral, mercê de um restauro antigo. Imponentes, luxuosos e bem equipados, os Mark VI são dos Bentley pós-Guerra mais conceituados e é fácil perceber porquê.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/pg19.
