BENTLEY MK VI
4-door saloon, various customs.
Choice of special bodies limitless, though 80 per cent of production carried the rust-prone Standard Steel coachwork. Customs tend to be aluminium-panelled, and there are no off-the-shelf replacement bits. On Standard Steels, first tell-tale sign of trouble is bubbling round the side-lamps. 18mpg a bonus; 4.6-litre engine from mid-1951.
