The Bentley Mark VI was launched after the war in 1946, and was the first model to be designed and built at the factory, with a new, standardized pressed-steel saloon coachwork. Some of the chassis however, were consigned with individual coachbuilders and Park Ward was commissioned to design one of the models. Built in 1951, the Bentley Mark VI Park Ward drophead coupe combined a sporting and elegant look, recognizable to its fully skirted rear fenders, fade-away front fenders. The refined body wore striking silver exterior finish, complimenting a gorgeous burgundy interior. The Bentley Mark VI Park Ward drophead coupe was powered by a 4.3-liter inline six-cylinder engine initially, upgraded to a large 4.5-liter unit in 1951. Linked to a four-speed manual gearbox, the engine was smooth and powerful. Combined to an independent front suspension, the Bentley Mark VI Park Ward drophead coupe provided impressive performance and could reach top speeds close to 100 mph.
