Gender Crisis

That '69 T again.
I recall seeing this car in October before it's 'Gender Change' - or should I say before it's gender change was reversed....
That's 'It' at the front.
Interesting history in Rodd's words:

"This particular Bentley has a unique delivery history which makes it interesting. The first buyer saw the vehicle on the show room floor and loved the colour combination but actually wanted a Rolls-Royce. He was not prepared to wait the lead time to order the Rolls-Royce equivalent so – at great expense – had the car converted to "appear" as a Rolls-Royce. Commissioned by Rolls-Royce USA, the grill, bonnet, hubcaps and external badging were changed to "Rolls-Royce". All original Bentley VIN and IDs remained in place, of course (The prefix "SBX" on the VIN is a correct Bentley VIN*). As part of the restoration process, Park-Ward Motors has re-instated its correct "Bentley" presentation as per factory specifications."
