This is a delightful and especially rare James Young Coupe Bentley Mk VI. The original Bentley Green lacquer is in remarkable condition. As you would expect, it still shows its shiny luster and the years have created cracking in the paint. This is inevitable and is befitting of an original preserved motorcar.

The chrome and stainless overall are in good to very good condition. The rear bumper is the only piece that could benefit from staightening if one wanted to. The glass is original and excellent.

The red leather interior is beautiful. For Connolly Leather to be in such fantastic shape after 67 years is indicative of a car that has been loved and cared for since new. There are normal age patina markings on the leather but overall it is very nice. The gorgeous wood throughout is stunning.

The engine compartment reflects more recent detailing for show. It appears as thought the engine compartment has been painted, polished and prepped for concours events. It looks really nice! Further, the undercarriage has also been nicely cleaned and painted for preservation and show. The original leather gaters covering the rear leave springs are in excellent condition. The exhaust system appears to be new. This is a sign that this example has not seen harsh weather and has been well cared for mechanically.

The radio and trafficators do not work. The lights and gauges work well (the fuel gauge may be intermittent or its low on fuel). The brakes and suspension are very nice with recent brake work performed.

The car comes with a large collection of tools, Spares, history file, manuals, receipts.
