1937 Derby Bentley 4 1/4 Disappearing top Drophead Coupe, H J Mulliner.
Chassis number: CVB702
Registration number: CVB702 (UK) 0AYR414 (Belgium).
This is a particularly desirable example of a 4.25 Derby Bentley with fabulous disappearing top coachwork by noted Chiswick based builders H.J. Mulliner & Co. The car has recently been repainted at considerable cost & is finished in midnight blue paintwork done to a very very high standard. To the interior is brand new Vaumol beige connoly hide throughout along with new carpets.
Great attention has been given to the interior retaining the original feather stuffing from the seats & adding to it where required to build up the right profile. No modern staples have been used with the leather instead having been hand tacked to the seat frames as was done when new. All woodwork has likewise been removed & beautifully refinished to a semi gloss finish.
The history is complete from 1937 and includes the majority of repair invoices over all the years as well as various articles and archive details are on file. New ash wood was let into the frame around 1980 to replace sub standard sections needing attention.
The car is the H.J. Mulliner 1937 Earls Court Motor Show Bentley display car and features the very attractive flowing body lines style due to its “concealed head”. £4,000 has recently been spent at Marque specialist C.J Ford Engineering to prepare it for a continental trip which it performed with aplomb. The car is due to come back to us as soon as French covid restrictions ease at which time we will conduct a proper photographic shoot. It has resided for the last four years in a prominent Belgian collection keeping company with other assorted Bentley, Jaguar, Rolls Royce & Aston Martin cars where it has been kept on the button & maintained without regard to expense whilst being little used.
