Description: Presenting this right-hand-drive 1949 Bentley MK VI Saloon Coachwork by Freestone & Webb that is dressed in an elegant two-tone blue that exudes an air of sophistication and refinement. The light blue interior, adorned with complementing dark blue piping and carpets, creates a harmonious and visually stunning contrast. The richly finished wood trim further enhances the opulence of the cabin, providing a warm and inviting atmosphere for both driver and passengers. Equipped with a 4-speed manual transmission, 4,257cc OHV inline-six-cylinder engine, SU dual carburetors, Smiths instrumentation, sunroof, 3-spoke steering wheel, an iconic Bentley "Flying B" hood ornament, rear fender skirts, chrome trim, chrome bumpers with overriders, Excelsior tires, Bentley branded hub caps, jack, and a full-size spare tire fitted in the trunk. Additional convenience features include folding picnic trays, manual-crank windows, passenger dash grab handle, rear-hinged coach doors, fender-mounted side mirrors, and trafficators that add an element of charm and nostalgia to your journey. One of the standout features of this particular model is the central-mounted driving lamp, which not only adds a touch of uniqueness but also enhances visibility during nighttime drives. This rare gem is one of just 18 cars built to this specific design, making it a truly exclusive find for collectors and enthusiasts alike. The exterior design of this example is a testament to the craftsmanship and attention to detail that Freestone & Webb is renowned for. The sleek wing lines and subtle hints of the signature "razor's edge" detailing showcase the timeless beauty and elegance of this classic vehicle.
