1940 Derby Bentley MX series Vanden Plas Pillarless overdrive SaloonChassis number: B-159-MXRegistration number: DDA225Arriving with us in the next two weeks:Purchased by the current owner in 1963 no less; an officer candidate at Sandhurst. This car has had a body off chassis up nut & bolt restoration by noted marque speciaists Mckenzie Guppy in Dorset. Around £200k has been spent upon the car to put it into as new mechanical condition with the work taking many years to complete. The car finally emerged from restoration last year & since then has covered a scant 600 miles so is still in the process of being run in. I have seen the extensive file of bills & will photograph it in its massive entirety upon arrival with us The current owner has not had the nerve to add up the total expenditure! It comes with a large selection of photographs detailing the extensive works undertaken. Literally everything has been attended to over the course of a decade long restoration.Pleasingly the Vanden Plas body is in its original colurs of two tone pale grey. The original leather interior & woodwork has been preserved with wonderful patina to the cabin. The headlining has been replaced with new west ot England cloth in pale grey. The body is or the pillarless variety making for very easy ingress & egress for the occupants. A full set of small & large tools comes with the car the majority of which reside in a tray in the boot lid.The car was ordered on 9th March 1939 with the chassis being delivered to Vanden Plas on the 15th of May 1939. on 10th January 1940 the finished car was sold to Hill Motors Ltd of Old Hill Stafforshire for immediate delivery to Helliwells at Walsall Airport who were manufacturers of aircraft parts. There were 5 further owners of the car before being purchased in 1963 by the current onwer who is selling the car due to his advanced age.The owner states: I fist bought this car in May 1963 when I was an army officer aged 21. It was advertised in Motor Sport by Dan Margulies for £395.00 & I persuded him to sell it for £375.00.
