HAPPY CLIENT

Jim, it was nice working with you.  I am not sure if I will do anything to the car (1970 GTO), but it really is a lot better car than I thought originally because the price was so good.  I am glad I came to look at it and have my mechanic check it out.  I will keep up with your cars because I still want to add to my collection as I can.  Thank you again.  AB, AL

Everything has gone great on the 1970 Dodge Charger RT.  Once the transport dropped it off, we are getting it ready to ship to Sweden and the buyer in Sweden is so excited and he can’t wait to get it.  Thank you for your help in making this transaction possible.  We have other international buyers looking for all kinds of vehicles, so let’s stay in touch.  Thanks again and it was a pleasure working with you.

Ann from Cincinnati says:

I worked with Jim to buy a Porsche 911 Cabriolet; I’d been looking for a Cabriolet in great condition for about a year and contacted Jim. Working with him via text, email and phone was simple and streamlined plus he’s a very interesting guy who is genuinely passionate about cars and about a straight forward sales process. I’d never purchased a car sight-unseen from an out of state seller — so I had some reservations, however Jim said all the right things, produced all the right support and responded quickly. The entire process took less time than I originally thought it might and the car exceeded my expectations. Thank you again, Ann (Cincinnati, Ohio)

"I've known Jim Lowrey for almost 30 years and have always respected him as the most knowledgeable and experienced person I knew when it came to cars. Buying cars through Jim has made the process literally a breeze!  Even more important to me than his expertise is his honesty and integrity. I would recommend Jim to anyone wanting to buy or sell a car!"  MG, AL

Description
Factory Left-hand Drive 1952 Bentley Mark VI 412- Litre Drophead Coupe: Coachwork by H. J. Mulliner, Park Ward Ltd

Despite the popularity of the factory's standard steel body, premiered on the MkVI Bentley, a coachbuilt alternative remained the preferred choice of many customers. Indeed, anyone desiring a soft-top Rolls-Royce or Bentley had no alternative but to commission one from an independent coachbuilder, there being no factory-built alternative at this time.
With the passage of time many Mark VIs have lost their original bodywork, in many cases because it had deteriorated beyond economical repair. Not so this left-hand drive example, chassis number 'B499LNY', which retains its original drophead coup coachwork by Park Ward Ltd. Delivered to the shippers on 1st October 1952, 'B499LNY' was supplied new via the United States importer J S Inskip to first owner J S Fitch, Esq of Washington, Pennsylvania, USA. Accompanying copy chassis cards show that the Bentley was ordered with various options including flashing indicators; bonnet locks; power operated hood; medium wave radio; sealed beam headlamps; 'Made in England' plate; and whitewall tyres.
Unfortunately, nothing else is known of its early history, chronologically the next evidence on file being a State of Florida Certificate of Title in the name of Mary M Coffin of Palm Beach issued on 28th January 2003. The current vendor purchased the Bentley in March 2008 from Fashion Management Europe (purchase invoice on file). A wonderful opportunity to own a handsome and rare coachbuilt Mark VI soft-top, the ultimate in 'fresh air' motoring in its day.
Although the current odometer reading states 57,067 miles, this Bentley would benefit from a complete respray and some cosmetic work in the interior. An overhaul of its mechanical components is also required. In addition the soft top has to be restored. However, the chassis looks solid, and the car retains its matching engine numbers.
