At the front and rear can't be discovered that it deals with a 2-door saloon. James Young rebuilt a 4-door saloon to a 2-door saloon and left the front and rear untouched. Yet many things have changed: the panelling of the rear sides, the C-pillar, longer doors, other side windows, the place of the B-pillar, the interior, and so on.
Picture: the CBH2267 from 1966.



This is the press picture of the Bentley T James Young 2-door saloon. On this picture the vanity mirror (the mirror on the inner side of the C-pillar) is very clear to see. This mirror was mounted in this coupé. In the Bentley T MPW 2-door saloon there was no vanity mirror because the C-pillar differed to much from the 4-door saloon.
