This is the smallest and neatest model produced by Bentley and the car is presented in a superb colour scheme. It was totally restored ten years ago to a high standard with seat belts in the front and back seats. 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.
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., recorded miles 36310 (but odo stuck following renovation), 3 recorded keepers in the V5 plus 2 more in the old log book, recently inspected and serviced.
