    6 1/2 litre Tourer

    A simply magnificent Bentley 6 1/2 litre Bentley with a recent engine
    rebuild being completed at the cost of £70,000. The car is thus in fine
    order & ready for immediate extended use.
    The 12ft 6 chassis (382 cm) of WK 2661 came out of Cricklewood in
    November 1926 with engine no FR 2635. Its first owner, Major Creyke,
    specified a Weymann type saloon body from H.J.Mulliner. It remained in
    England for a long time before being taken to Sweden by its new owner,
    who had R.C.Moss convert it to a Vanden Plas style tourer in the early
    Sixties.
    The car is finished in a pleasing shade of blue painted bonnet & wings,
    with Blue rexine fabric to the body, all of which is in fine order. To the
    interior is Grey hide throughout again in lovely condition with matching
    grey carpets. A black mohair hood easily erects although it appears to
    have been little used.
    The engine having been rebuilt is in fine fettle. It starts instantly, & pulls
    very strongly in all gears. Twin driving lamps up front augment the large
    head lamps during nocturnal excursions. A large & sonorous brass
    klaxon is mounted under the bonnet, as is a modern full flow oil filter.
    Its present owner, a Dutchman, bought it twenty-three years ago in
    December 1993 from well known London dealer Gregor Fisken. He has
    used it profitably to enjoy Concours d’Elegance and Rallies as far afield
    as the Bentley International Tour of South Africa in 2001. During his
    tenure the car has been maintained without regard to cost as indeed
    attested to by the big bills that come with the car.
    This 6 1/2 litre Bentley is all original mechanically , so it’s a true ”
    matching numbers” car. It gets its charm from its distinctive bodywork
    which pays tribute to the Le Mans Speed Sixes, and partly from its
    torque and the superb way it drives. That’s what these W.O.Bentleys are
    about. It’s a marvelous machine, waiting to seek out new adventures
    and pile on the miles !
