1951 Bentley MKVI H.J. Mulliner 'Lightweight' Saloon B141LH (1951)




Chassis No. B141LH
A good, very useable example of the attractive H.J.Mulliner coachbuilt version of the MK VI, different in many appealing ways from the standard steel saloons. Somewhat ahead of its time design-wise, in many ways, and yet sporting a vertically divided windscreen, giving character and interest. Nicely finished in a lovely shade of deep blue and silver/grey, with original blue/grey leather and appealing interior woodwork, the overall cosmetic condition being ideal to 'use & enjoy'. Structurally, the body, chassis and underside are all, importantly, very good. The car has been used and enjoyed enthusiastically by the last owner, and is in good order throughout, ready to go. Offered serviced, prepared and newly MoT tested

Chassis No.  B141LH                  Reg. No. MGP 845        
Snippets: The Sailing Decorator
William John Naylor was a successful commercial decorator based in Bristol, his customers included John Lewis’s Store in Bristol (pleasant pastel shades!) and the High Altitude Test Plant where they tested supersonic aircraft.  The main contractors were Holland & Hannen & Cubitts; this triple-barrelled company was created when Holland & Hannen acquired the firm of Cubitt which had been established in 1810 by Thomas Cubitt - he of course is a great-great-great-grandfather of Her Majesty Queen Camilla.  When William Naylor died in 1983 his estate was valued at some £63,000 but when his widow Winifred died in 1986 her estate was valued at £186,000, a thrifty lady.  One Saturday in July 1969 William Naylor and two companions left Dartmouth in his sloop Sailby to sail to France but on their return on the Sunday evening they ran aground and had to wait until the tide turned so they could be towed off!  Later owners of B141LH included a member of the noble Belgium family t’Kint de Roodenbeke family and Hans Bezemer whose passion for classic cars was the basis for the Real Art on Wheels B.V. Collection. Whilst in his possession B141LH was fondly known as the “Blue Angel”.
