Description

  • 1925 Bentley 3 Litre Blue Label
  • Four-seater tourer coachwork by Freestone & Webb
  • Extensive and well-documented history
  • Superbly restored example of an iconic model

This Bentley 3 Litre Blue Label model has a rich history. Chassis number 1109 was fitted with a four-seater tourer body by Freestone & Webb and sold new in 1925 via Dublin agents Keegan & Neill to Ernest Bewley. By then in his mid-60s, Bewley was part of a successful family of tea merchants, and in 1894 he had opened his first Oriental Café in Dublin.

That was followed by three more, the most famous of which is the one that is still located on Grafton Street today. Poet Brendan Kennelly once said that Bewley’s Oriental Cafés were ‘the heart and hearth of Dublin.’

Sadly, the opening of the Grafton Street shop took its toll on Bewley’s health and his finances. After he died in 1932, the Bentley passed to a WJ Malcolmson, who was also based in Dublin. Included in the paperwork is a copy of the original Bentley Motors service record, which goes up to 1939 and documents a considerable amount of mechanical work during that decade.
