"Not much information to report, other than this Bentley once belonged to a Bernard A Foster (my partners grandfather) who also once owned a 6½ litre Bentley he converted to a Perkins diesel engine in 1948/49. I have the owners manual for YM5026, as well as a feature article (Over to Oil) from 'The Motor' Magazine dated January 21st 1948 on the diesel conversion."
