BENTLEY 6½-LITRE STANDARD

Various: chassis only listed.

Usual classical Bentley top end design, seven mains and an immensely robust frame. Cars made in our period will have magneto and coil ignition, Dewandre servo brakes and C-'box with close-ratio third. Externally identifiable from a Speed 6 by its tapering radiator sides. A short wheelbase measure 135ins, and too many 6½'s had ponderous fabric bodies which haven't lasted. Just try to find a really original specimen.
