Lightweight Salon
Coachwork: Mulliner
For two to three years after World War II, most cars were basically carry-overs from 1941 and 1942 models. Rolls-Royce differed in that it introduced all-new Rolls-Royce and Bentley models. The Mark VI Bentley, introduced in 1946, had a 6-cylinder, 4.25 liter, F head engine with a 4-speed transmission. They were a delight to drive and extremely reliable.

Prior to World War II Rolls-Royce and Bentley produced only chassis and custom coach builders built the bodies. Starting in 1946 Rolls-Royce produced complete cars with bodies, but chassis continued to be supplied to coachbuilders for custom bodies. This Bentley has a custom Lightweight Salon body produced by H.J. Mulliner. It looks original from the outside but has been modified to permit access in a wheelchair and permit driving from the wheelchair.

The steering was changed from right hand to left hand drive with power steering added; custom hand controls were added; and the 4-speed transmission replaced with an automatic. To make entry and exit easy and allow room from the wheelchair, the driver's side door has been modified to slide back sideways, the floor has been lowered and a power lift added. In order to be able to lower the floor it has been converted from rear wheel drive to front wheel drive with a LT1 Corvette engine with Toronado transmission and differential and Chevy Blazer front axle, eliminating the drive shaft.
