Short u-tube vid of Jag https://youtu.be/4LjCAs1lga0
The cost of restoring this car must have been very substantial, as it involved hundreds of hours of professional expertise, so the final bill can only be imagined.

All usual Jaguar luxury refinements with acres of polished walnut and real leather upholstery. Understandably the Jag looks and drives like a factory-fresh new one with textbook oil pressure and roadhandling. It even has that new car smell. 2,4-Litre engine which has recently been fully tuned. Manual gearbox with fully functioning overdrive, it also displays only 53,000 miles which may be accurate. Recent expenditure of over 4,500 pounds shows the Jag has been well cared for previously.

1949 Bentley Mark VI 4-seat Tourer by Alan Padgett £69,995
Genuine 4-seat, open top motoring
Short u-tube vid of Bentley https://youtu.be/kQY4Q1LzHEU
Meticulous recreation in the eighties from MK VI Saloon to an Open Tourer with a superb, Derby-style sporty, coachbuilt all-metal body using genuine Derby bonnet and front wings plus many other vintage components. Chassis modified by Alan Padgett Motor Engineers builder of over 30 special-bodied Bentleys. The normal mechanical specification was retained but the engine and gearbox were moved back by some 10 inches and a specially made cast aluminium bulkhead fabricated. The very swish rear wings were inspired by the legendary Lagonda Rapier by ‘Wings & Things‘ bodybuilders from Newtown St, Boswells. The engine and gearbox have been fully rebuilt and this car can cruise at 75 mph on the motorway with ease, according to the last owner (and builder) of 38 years, so it is a highly usable example, ideal for vintage rallies and overseas touring. The owner drove it here from Scotland to Lancashire without a qualm. High quality double duck hood and full length tonneau. Seats upholstered in soft red leather and carpets with bound edges. Not many Mk VI Specials have 4 proper seats.This actual car is featured in Ray Robert’s Book of Bentley Specials (p 322, 323 Vol.1) copy entries included in history file. See Data page for more pics of this fabulous Bentley motorcar.
