Was there any record of a Bentley Mark VI Standard Steel saloon in Kerala? The RTO records show KLT 4000 as being a "Bailtny Standard" registered in 1954, belonging to one Arunachalam R M. Its just a wild guess.

Interesting. Seems to be a 4 cylinder though per the records.

And also a tourer - I guess it's not likely to be a Standard Saloon after all. But I still wouldn't rule out a Bentley, especially considering the special number.

Another couple of shots of #B47EW when seen in the UK by my father and me when the car was offered for sale by Peter Harper. The asking price then was UK 45.000 which we thought was too much for a MK VI......you live and learn;-)

Your friend should check with the owner before posting this picture.

This lovely mysore car still has its original pink leather seats and drives beautifully and will soon be joined by a Lancia Lambda

Looks like a few unrestored Bentley's have been imported into the country recently.
