One of the Bentley’s first US outings was to the RROC Texas Region’s Spring Meet in 1974, where it picked up the award for ‘Best MkVI’, much to its owner’s surprise. Subsequently the Bentley spent many years gathering dust in the vendor’s garage, eventually emerging in 1998 to be restored, a process that would occupy the next six years. In 2004, 30 years after its first appearance there, ‘B399DZ’ again attended the Texas Spring Meet, repeating its win in the MkVI class while adding the award for ‘Most Exotic Car’, a wonderful achievement. Offered with its original handbook, UK registration logbook, 1972 bill of sale and Texas Certificate of Title, ‘B399DZ’ represents a rare opportunity to acquire a unique, coachbuilt MkVI Bentley, bodied by one of Britain’s foremost coachbuilders in period ‘Transatlantic’ style.
