Can't tell you much Andy but it has a 4.5 litre petrol engine.

Certainly looks like all the other Mk VI 1952 Bentleys on Google Images, apart from the coachbuilt ones. A couple of pictures of that very car but no detail. It appears on the site of a wedding photographer in Flintshire but each time I've tried to go to it Chrome as crashed through loads of Windows opening, and on a Mac as well. Not had that before.

 

Actually I can't see how Google finds the picture of it on Flickr at Malin Head, or the fishing lodge in Careysville, or rather I can only presume that it can 'read' the registration number from the photo, can it really do that?

I got the year from DVLA website. If you put in the Reg you get a limited amount of info. Year of manufacture and colour that's all. Thanks for the effort.

I imagine not- the images are just similar enough, and unusual enough. I notice surprising matches sometimes.

MkVI or Mk6 or Mark VI or Mark 6 not MkV1 (but include the V1 for clients making the same mistake)

Saloon or Standard Steel Saloon

Big Bore (4566 cc - from the DVLA - vs 4,257cc)

4,566 cc

4.5 litre or 4.5 L or 4.5l or 4 1/2 etc etc.

278 cu in

 

The Malin Head image from the rear shows it's not an R type.

Don't forget to check AoA for Bentley.

 

1954 Bentley R Type B73YA (1954 chassis). This 4-door 4-light saloon was delivered in September 1954 to la Société Franpar of Paris (France Soir newspaper) and registered 7742-CZ-75. It was registered OMB710 on its return to the UK. In 2004 it was owned in Switzerland by RREC member Dr. Heinz Wehrli. http://www.kda132.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/NZRRB11-5-1.pdf

 

Why did I look into this? Because of the wedding photographer image. I do think Google uses OCR for Google images. After using Google Translate with live view for a while, I would be amazed if they didn't. Great wedding pix btw.

Excellent result. I'm not suggesting you do this but when I go to that Wedding photographer site again using your link this time I still get all these windows opening as soon as I scroll down. Never seen it before anywhere else but happens every time (just the 3 times today) that I go there. Strange, not going back.

I have uBlock Origin and using Firefox. No popups nor extra windows here.

Even after disabling uBlock, still no windows.

Thanks for checking, I'll just wait and see if it happens again on any other site, I didn't think Macs were susceptible to this type of thing.
