A very British motor car, the S Series combined the finest standards of luxury and refinement with 100 mph performance in an outstandingly elegant body.
213 DVK has gained a Rolls-Royce radiator grille, a popular conversion in the seventies for those eschewing the sporting Bentley image for the real status symbol of driving behind that famous grille. This was a particularly favourite conversion with operators of Wedding Car fleets as the Rolls was seen as the way to make a more memorable arrival, especially at one’s nuptials.
The motor car is probably ready for a respray and refurbishment of the upholstery; work will also be required to the rear chassis members.
The 6 cylinder engine of 4887cc is coupled to a 4 speed automatic gearbox. The motor car runs and drives but service history is unknown. Sensibly reserved, the Bentley comes with a current V5C registration certificate and an RF60 registration book.
