This car started life as a 1949 Bentley MkVI saloon ‑ the 18th example built ‑ but was converted during 1976 and 1977 by Alan Padgett of Padgett Motor Engineers into a two‑seater special, with Padgett/Watson two‑seater body finished off by the Swallow Coachbuilding Company. Lucas P80 headlamps were fitted and a hood and tonneau cover were made especially. The 4257cc six‑cylinder engine was also converted to the later 'Full Flow' type. It is listed and featured in Ray Roberts "Bentley Specials & Special Bentleys".

Over the last 10 years, the Bentley has covered around 220 miles, being dry‑stored the rest of the time according to the vendor.
