In England in 2003 / Owned by a BDC member
 

"This car is featured in James Taylor's 2012 book, "Bentley six-cylinder models in detail" pages 46-57. There are many beautiful color pictures showing the originality and preservation of this beautiful car. It is exactly as I remember it from my father's ownership and a credit to his insistence that it be maintained as it was originally built. I was relieved to see the new owner has been true to his promise of continuing that tradition of stewardship."
