Testimonials

"Jesmond and Gloria I happened to read some of the testimonials posted on your website and after our recent dealings feel compelled to add my two cents worth despite the fact I never usually give written testimonials other than in my work environment .Firstly I have to say that everything I have read pretty much sums up your combined service and approach to selling and buying of the classic cars you represent .Secondly having brought two cars , one sight unseen, and sold two cars in the last 12 months I can only reiterate the comments of others regarding your honesty and integrity and good communication. As for Gloria's attention to getting the logistics arranged smoothly and other follow up given the unfortunate delivery issue with one of the cars I bought, I cannot say enough and appreciate the efforts .It truly is a pleasure working with you on my NZ fleet of vehicles. Having also had the chance to meet you and spend a few hours looking at and talking classic cars during my last visit to NZ it is a pleasure to see someone else with the same passion and knowledge of classic cars .I see that your business is not just a business but is a passion to do the right thing by the people you are working with, be they buyers or sellers and also to do the right thing by the cars you sell .Given we are now working on another sell and buy opportunity I am sure we will continue to have more dealings in the future as my little fleet takes further shape Best Regards"

      Specifications


      Description

      Bentley came out of the WW2 starting blocks with a bang.

      The MkVI was effectively an all-new car, and had plenty of new technology to boast about. It was the first Bentley with a steel body as standard, although many buyers still took the coachbuilding route - and rightly so, as so many of the convertibles, tourers and shooting brakes were so attractive looking.

      Its chassis was quite advanced for the time, with independent front suspension, servo brakes, a four-speed gearbox and the very useful centralised chassis lubrication system.

      ABOUT THIS CAR

      • Chassis #: B133CD
      • Engine #: 8/317/C
      • Mechanically Sound with tens of thousands spent on it at Bentley Specialists. Engine work carried out by Bruce Mcilroy. Other servicing / maintenance work carried out by John Finlay Motors in Canterbury. 
      • This is a 4.3 L referred to as the 4 1⁄4 Litre engine.
      • Interior in excellent condition – Leather Upholstery recently restored in Canterbury – over $5K spent.
      • Complete with Jack, spare wheel, full tool kit
      • Body and paint in good order – some paint blemishes.
      • Good tyres.
      • Car drives and handles very well

      The cost of restoring a Mark VI saloon can be several times the car's market value; however, once repaired, a Mark VI is relatively inexpensive to maintain and can ably serve as a daily driver. As such, an honest Bentley Mk VI can be a good introduction to classic motoring. Of course, the same does not hold true for a car with deferred maintenance, so buy with diligence, and insist on service / maintenance records like this one has.

      TRANSPORT / SHIPPING CAN BE ORGANISED ON THIS VEHICLE ON BUYER'S BEHALF AT BUYERS COST. 

      Will be sold WOF'd and Registered if sold in New Zealand.

      Viewing is STRICTLY BY APPOINTMENT only!
