"Coachwork By Mulliner. # YF 5001. Historically this is one of the most important 8 litre Bentleys; it was the first production model and its first owner was the famous film and stage star of the thirties, Mr Jack Buchanan. Restored to concours winning condition by the late Geoff Huckle in 1986/7 and has won the prestigious Kensington Garden Award for best restoration. This is as good as it gets. A serious motor car for a serious owner.
