1931 BENTLEY B-SPECIAL Blower - £POA
1931 BLOWER BENTLEY ONE OF THE ORIGINAL 50 (VERY RARE) The Blower Bentley. Well these were the car for motoring heroes and this one was the subject of a heroic seven year rebuild commencing in 1984 with painstaking attention to detail. Back in 1935 when lots of money didn't necessarily mean lots of driving skill this Blower joined the ranks of work in progress at the Bentley works. That work included the fitting of a reconditioned chassis frame, front axle, front dumb irons and a new steering wheel! .Whilst they were at it they relined the front brakes. By 1984 the supercharger had gone and the engine had found its way into another vintage Bentley. Well our enthusiastic hero decided he wanted a Blower Bentley and instead of rebuilding his own 4 decided to do it the hard way. Travelling the world he reunited GW 2222 with her original engine, steering box, the front axle and had a splendid VDP Le Mans body made by the very best. Not content with a new supercharger he purchased with great difficulty (expense) supercharger number 121 the correct smooth casing item from the original Olympia show car. The attention to detail continued through to an original D type gearbox and a genuine Speed Six differential as fitted to all of the fifty original blowers ensure the complete vintage Bentley motoring experience. And it does. Press the starter button for one of the greatest British engine soundtracks ever. This doesn't stir your soul - it steals it! A guaranteed entry into great motoring events across the world.
