An extraordinary, highly-documented example of the archetypal Vintage Bentley. Used in period by Bentley as a demonstrator and road-tested by The Motor in 1928. Verified with original engine, gearbox, coachwork, body, and more. An incredible opportunity to acquire one of the very finest, most authentic Cricklewood Bentleys extant.
It is with great pleasure that we offer this superb 1928 Bentley 4 ½-Litre, chassis number ST3006. This incredible W.O. Bentley is only the sixth 4 ½-Litre chassis built, and the first of the model to feature the now-iconic sports four-seater coachwork by Vanden Plas. A fascinating and meticulously researched report by Dr. Clare Hay reveals this car’s extraordinary history, and it stands as one of the most complete and authentic 4 ½-Litres extant – retaining its factory original chassis, engine, gearbox, coachwork, rear axle, and numerous other components. It presents today in excellent condition, with the honest character preferred by Bentley enthusiasts, acquired through years of enjoyment and care.
