One of just 75 drophead coupés produced and featuring the ‘Chinese Eye’ lights that proved popular with the likes of the broadcaster Alan Whicker CBE (1921 – 2013) also, the car offered was originally finished in Cadillac Green with a green interior and top. It now sports white paintwork, a grey/black and blue interior and a blue hood but does retain its numbers matching engine and was subsequently owned by the businessman, car collector and one-time Japanese Honorary Consul of Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden Dr Soichiro Yoshida.

 

RM Sotheby’s will sell the Bentley with an estimate of £110,000 to £140,000 ($142,000 to $180,000, €121,000 to €153,000 or درهم520,000 to درهم662,000) at their sale in Battersea Park on 6th September.

  1. I like this very much but the interior looks like it still needs fixing up. I can see cracks on the front seats, for example, or is that simply bad photography?

    • Yolanda, when you talk of the ‘interior look’ you do realise that this is a motor car?
      Or, are you wearing your ‘property professional’ hat?

  2. The engine appears to need some attention too. I suspect this might be a bit more of a project than it is being made out to be.
