A late series Derby which carried a Park Ward saloon body (as most of the Derby Bentley did) for much of her life

In fact of the 2.400 produced between 1933 and 1939 only 600 carried bespoke bodywork

Anyhow, our lovely car was kept and owned for many years by a family who used her for many Continental Tours, one of which was the Around the World in 80 Days!!

Obviously she had been campaigned hard over her life, and continued to do so well into her 7th decade

After such grueling trips, well into her 70's the family decided to strip her down and breathe a new lease of life into her

Of course, James E Pearce were chosen to ensure the quality of the rebuild would stand the test of time, just as her original manufacture stood her in good stead for so many years

A Vanden Plas style touring body was chosen, and what better than to use an existing original Tourer from VdP as the buck (in fact one owned by Paul Wood - a good chap he is too)

The result is amazing, still after 10 years of use since

Many rosette's attest to this from both the RREC and the BDC as well the RAC who chose her for display at the Hampton Court Concours twice and also for display within their Rotunda in their Pall Mall Club House

Not only is she a pretty face, but she drives sublimely too, starts on the button and thereafter you can hardly hear her running - purrrfect (!!)

As a last Derby series she also enjoy the MX overdrive and soft steering, which does really help in town too

Still retains her original registration number, as well as her original engine and gearbox so this fabulous Bentley is indeed one of the nicest style VdP tourers we have ever come across, and one not to be missed
