NEW TITLE AVAILABLE EARLY 2024
Bentley Mark VI & R-Type, Including the Bentley Continental and the Rolls-Royce Silver Dawn
by Martin Bennett

This book is a celebration of the best-selling model produced by Rolls-Royce Ltd when motor car production resumed at Crewe after World War II, the Bentley Mk VI. That model later evolved into the R-Type and the Bentley Continental, as well as a Rolls-Royce counterpart, the Silver Dawn.

The most radical post-war change was the fitting of standardised pressed steel bodies, though some 20% of Bentley Mk VIs and somewhat lesser percentages of the R-Type and Silver Dawn models, as well as 100% of the Bentley Continentals, continued the pre-war practice of having custom bodies from such coachbuilders as Park Ward, Hooper and H.J. Mulliner. Comprehensive histories of these and other coachbuilders are included and all cars fitted with coachbuilt bodies are listed.

Author Biography

Martin Bennett was born in 1949 in Gloucestershire in the United Kingdom, but has lived for most of his adult life in Australia where he became fascinated by and then totally absorbed in the Rolls-Royce and Bentley marques. He has a number of books on these magnificent motor cars to his credit, the first having been published in 1973, as well as serving as Editor of two Rolls-Royce Owners' Club of Australia magazines over the last 40 years, and with numerous articles published in Rolls-Royce and Bentley magazines in the United Kingdom, United States and other countries. He has driving experience of most models, with a particular enthusiasm for the early post-war models of which he has owned several examples. His previous title Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith dealt with the first post-war Rolls-Royce in great detail, and this volume continues the early post-war theme with the much more numerous Bentley Mk VI and R-Type models, and the less numerous Rolls-Royce Silver Dawn.
