1954 Bentley R Type

For Project Bentley, we started with an original ’54 R Type Bentley frame and body. We installed a S-10 front frame section and 8.8 Ford rear axle. The car has been converted to left hand drive. Power comes from an LT1 automatic combo, with air conditioning. We also installed a modern sun roof, opening over the rear passenger compartment of the Bentley. Other upgrades include, a 36 gallon fuel tank made in house, new wiring harness, and modern gauges.
