This is the smallest and neatest model produced by Bentley and the car is presented in a superb colour scheme. (The paler blue is slightly darker than in the photos.) It was totally restored ten years ago to a high standard with seat belts in the front and back seats, sunshine roof. The condition is A1 all round with matching numbers and full documentation.
These solid and lively cars offered 1940’s motoring at its best. This one is as good underneath as it is above with a bullet-proof 4.25 litre engine and servo-assisted brakes. The inside is reminiscent of a country club house of the period with polished wood veneer, soft pile carpets and acres of light grey leather. It is the best sample of these cars we have handled.
The renovation over 2008-11 was extensive including a bare-metal respray, woodwork, fabric and virtually everything mechanical. Key data are: chassis B252FV, engine B126F, Reg 886 PBP on 24th Oct 1949, Supplied by Jack Barclay Ltd., <40,000 miles, 3 recorded keepers in the V5 plus 2 more in the old log book, recently inspected and serviced. Ready to drive away.
