Sold for $68,320 at 2021 Bonhams : Amelia Island Auction.
This Bentley MK VI Drophead Coupe wears coachwork by Park Ward & Co., Ltd. It was ordered by T.H. Matson of Victoria, British Columbia through the local dealer, Thomas Plimley. The car was built with a power top and windows, medium and short wave radio, a special license plate bracket in place of a built-in number plate holder, and slightly elevated ground clearance. Its exterior was finished in two-tone grey over light blue hides.

This Bentley was eventually brought to the United States and later to the East Coast before the present owner acquired it from the state of Virginia in early April of 2008. Throughout its lifespan, the car has received some restoration work including be repainted silver with a matching beige top. The 4,257cc overhead-valve inline six-cylinder engine uses a single Twin-Choke carburetor and produces approximately 130 horsepower. There is a four-speed manual transmission, an independent front suspension, a live rear axle, and four-wheel drum brakes.
