1952 Bentley

Geneva Show Car

A total nut and bolt complete restoration to a detail not known before...Absolutely gorgeous is this rare Graber bodied originally displayed at Geneva in 1952 as a FHC however the buyer only wanted a convertible or drophead coupe.Graber accommodated the buyer and six months later the Swiss Industrialist took possession of this rare and most gorgeous automobile.Several years later it found its way to sunny Newport Beach California dressed in its original white finish .....when well known Rolls Royce enthusiast and collector acquired this rare gem he envisioned it in new 'livery' thus its current British Racing Green with stunning Russet leather interior.Read additional below

A most wonderful car where no item has been overlooked during its restoration down to incredible details that so many restorers miss. It was restored from a perfectly solid original car to meet the demands of its anal owner. Take it to the finest Concours and drive there and back as it just did placing 250 miles going and returning with Trophy.Do you know of any other top show car that the owner would drive like this?

This car was seen for years from the 1960's up driving in Newport Beach by handsome Naval Commander (retired) W.C.Bill Wilkinson with the top down and an attractive lady always in his presence .. and always close by the built in liquor cabinet in the dash.

I recently received a call from someone who knew the car very well and was friends with W.C.Bill Wilkerson back in the early sixties when the car was finished in white and he confirmed Bill had a drink in one hand and a gorgeous lady alongside as he drove through Newport Beach with the top down while hewas always smiling.Tony Handle, of Rolls Royce fame and well known restorer also serviced the car on occasion and confirmed everything about WCW and his passion for attractive cars and ladies.I have personally placed over 1550 miles on this vehicle and also smiled all the time driving it.I have personally placed over 1550 miles on this vehicle and also smiled all the time driving it.
