Is This A 1956 Bentley R-Type Continental by H. J. Mulliner?

by Mike –

I saw this stunning Bentley in the parking lot of a local restaurant recently in between rain storms.

What a beauty it is – I had to do some research to try and figure out the model and year. Most cars of this caliber are seen sitting on grass with a sign detailing the model information. Not this one it was out for a drive on a beautiful day with another Bentley parked nearby which was not as easy to photograph as this one.

I think it is a 1956 Bentley R-Type Continental by H. J. Mulliner.

Let us know in the Comments what model you think this is.

Thank you for supporting My Car Quest

  1. Why did you not ask for the owner in the restaurant? This can be done carefully and most owners like to talk about their cars…

  2. Wayne Watkins says
