Sold for $176,000 at 2014 RM Auctions - Automobiles of Arizona.
In 1959, Rolls-Royce purchased rival H.J. Mulliner. In 1969, Park War and Mulliner merged to form Mulliner Park Ward.

This Bentley R-Type Drophead Coupe by Park Ward was delivered new to Mr. George Dawson in October of 1953. It is believed to be one of just six right-hand drive models built. The car is finished in Black Cherry exterior with a biscuit leather interior.

The current owner acquired the car several years ago and has displayed it at several events, winning a First in Class at a Rolls-Royce Owners' Club National Meet, the Jack Frost Ladies' Choice Trophy for Most Outstanding Car, and First Place at the 2013 Queen's English All-British Car Show at Woodley Park, as well as Best Coachbuilt Car.
