About to arrive with us. This car has had a nut & bolt restoration by noted marque specialists Alpine Eagle & as a result is in close to concours condition. This was Hoopers London Motor show car after which it was delivered to Archibald Fraser Esq in Glasgow; thence to Sir Oliver Edwin Simmonds MP in Ripley in 1942 who had an electric/hydraulic hood mechanism fitted by Abbotts of Farnham!
There is also a full photographic and written record of the comprehensive restoration undertaken by Alpine Eagle of Clanfield 2001-2003, together with a full engine re-build in 2009 by RR & B Garages of Bromsgrove.
The Bentley has been seen in many concours, events and tours/rallies over its long life, not least during the current ownership where it has journeyed as far afield as Pau coveirng the miles with aplomb in the tradition of a grand routier.
We will be condiucting a full photo shoot as soon as the car arrives. It is currently having a full pre sale service undertaken by Alpine Eagle.
