This 1947 Bentley Mark VI Cabriolet, with a custom body by Franay, was created exclusively for the 1947 Paris Auto Show. In January it will meet its new owner at the Barrett-Jackson’s Scottsdale auction. The magnificent interior design features frog skin inserts and it even has a fully equipped bar cabinet. It is said that this car is the most valuable postwar Bentley.
The vehicle is quite famous and has some great trophies to boast of: in 1991 it was judged Best of Show at the Rolls Royce national meet, in 1999 it took the Royce Memorial Trophy and top senior award at the Rolls Royce national meet which took place at Dana Point, California and in 1995, at Hurlingham England Concours D’Elegance, it got the Best of Show and the Spectator Trophies. The Bentley is also mentioned in Assouline’s book, ‘The Impossible Collection of Cars’. It seems that this car knows its way around the public.
