1949 Bentley Mark VI Sedanca Coupe / B175CD Chassis Information

1949 Bentley Mark VI
Sedanca Coupe
Coachwork: Hooper
Chassis #: B175CD
Sold for $126,500 at 2015 Gooding & Company : Pebble Beach Concours.
This Bentley MK VI was ordered by Iraq's Prince Regent 'Abd al-Ilah. It was given Sedanca Coupe coachwork by Hooper & Co. The chassis had been intended for a Swiss doctor, but was redistributed for the prince regent's order. The work was completed in 1949 and then shipped to him in Baghdad. It returned to Hooper in September of 1950 and first registered in Britain during February 1951. It was acquired by Lawrence W. (later to become Sir Lawrence) Robson in 1958 and then later passed on to his son, from whom Ron Rezek acquired it in 2011. A mechanical recommissioning and cosmetic restoration followed. The original engine bay, upholstery, and interior wood was left untouched.

Power is from a 4257 cc F-Head inline 6-cylinder engine fitted with Twin SU carburetors and delivering 130 horsepower. There is a 4-speed manual gearbox and 4-wheel Servo-Assisted drum brakes.
