Description

1951 Bentley MK VI H J Mulliner 'Lightweight' Saloon B193HP

The H. J. Mulliner ‘Lightweight’ design is particularly interesting, being in many ways several years ahead of the trend, having a mid-fifties appearance rather than its 1951 date, but at the same time having a delightful vertically divided windscreen, reminiscent of a slightly earlier era perhaps. This example is a good, sound one, benefitting from recent expenditure of about £30,000 with the previous owner who bought the car from us four years ago. Mechanically and structurally good, very useable, smart, clean and tidy without being too smart to use and enjoy. The front seats have recently been nicely re-upholstered, the remainder being original. Upgraded to a twin exhaust system (as fitted to the later 'big bore' versions) in stainless steel, including tubular stainless manifolds and the car comes with a comprehensive history file which includes, amongst various documents, letters, invoices, etc, the original logbook from 1951. The car drives extremely well, with a lively 'go anywhere' feel and is offered with a new set of tyres and MoT tested until November 2020

Snippets: 

Supplied by Brooklands of Bond Street – founded in 1931 by Billy Bates & initially located at Great Portland St but by 1937 they had moved to 103 Bond St.  During the ‘30s & ‘40s Brooklands were agents for Ferrari, Invictas, Isotta-Franschini, Alvis, Healey, Aston-Martin, Lagonda & Bentley.  In March 1951 B193HP was delivered to the firm of Carrington & Dewhurst, Eccleston – the company was set up at Grove Mill in 1885 by Mr A Carrington & Mr J M Dewhurst, the introduction of artificial silk in 1925 meant that weaving cotton was no longer viable.  During WWII the firm produced millions of yards of fabric which were used for parachutes & balloons.  Various subsidiaries of Carringtons (Bomford Pollard, YEWCO) took over ownership of the Bentley until September 1965 when it became the possession of Stanley North who was a local bandleader.  In 1990 the Bentley had relocated to Black Mill Farm, Headcorn near Ashford – between 1769 & 1910 this was the site of a Smock Mill (a 6 or 7 sided building), the name is taken from their resemblance to a farmer’s smock!
