Then And Now

Team Bentley Spotting is gradually working through a big box of Rolls-Royce & Bentley photos sent to us by our friend Juergen in in Germany...
And here are a few more of them, showing a 1953 Bentley R-type, chassis # B409SP, painted in black over maroon..
At the time of the photos, in the early 90s, it was looking rather tired...
But a quick search of the web finds an old "for sale" advert and some more photos...
Great to see it fully restored! It definitiely looks much sharper...
Here's the wording from the advertisement:
