Bentley T1 Coupe by James Young

Now here is a rare one.

It is a 1967 Bentley T1 Coupe by James Young.



That's right, the other coachbuilder of the Silver Shadow/T based cars, besides H.J Mulliner Park Ward.

James Young made 15 Bentley cars and 35 Rolls-Royce cars in 2 door form, then called it quits.

This one has popped up for sale at the impressive WAKUI MUSEUM in Japan famous for having 'Old Mother Gun' parked in the garage.



Coachbuilding on monocoque chassis does not really work when you start to talk about money.



You can buy it here.



Lets take a look around the inside of the museum.



Good luck to the new purchaser. I did recently learn that one of the 15 Bentley cars was in Australia a few years ago. It maybe still in Melbourne.
