During the late 1920s and early 1930s Bentley ran into grave financial trouble and by 1931 Rolls-Royce had stepped in and bought the assets and goodwill of the defunct company and formed a new one, Bentley Motors (1931) Ltd. Rolls-Royce had considered the Bentley marque to be a growing threat to their future success, but following their purchase decided to continue the Bentley name, albeit under their own stewardship, taking the company in an entirely new direction with the creation of the Silent Sports Car or Derby Bentley. In 1933 the new Bentley 3.5 Litre model was released and was an instant success. The combination of effortless power and style met with almost universal praise. It was powered by a developed twin carburettor version of Rolls-Royces own 20/25 model and was installed in a low 126 inch wheelbase chassis that basically remained unaltered until the cessation of production in 1939 due to the outbreak of hostilities. Synchromesh was present on third and fourth gears and the Derbyswere fitted with a cross flow cylinder head and superb servo assisted brakes, encapsulating all of the perfection of Rolls-Royce engineering in this small sporting Bentley. Fitting of individual coachwork by approved body builders continued in true Rolls-Royce fashion giving potential buyers a great deal of choice in the look of their new motor car. 1936 saw further improvements with the introduction of the 4.25 Litre model when production of the 3.5 Litre unit ceased. Following the cessation of the First World War J. Gurney Nutting founded the firm which quickly became one of Britains top coachbuilders. In 1923 the factory in Croydon was destroyed by fire and the firm moved to new premises in Elystan Street in Chelsea. The firms reputation for quality and style grew quickly, with orders being placed by a number of members of the British Royal Family, including the Prince of Wales (later King Edward VIII) the Duke of York (later King George VI and the Duke of Kent.) Gurney Nutting were subsequentlygranted a Royal Warrant by the Prince of Wales for the years 1931 to 1935. The work of chief designer A.F. McNeill is widely recognised as some of the finest coachwork fitted to a Rolls-Royce and Bentley chassis. Gurney Nutting were famous for their sedanca coupe designs and Chassis No B187LE is one of their most stylish offerings. It is believed to be one of just four cars built to this design, all of which were believed to have been supplied by Jack Barclay Ltd between 1937 and 1938, fitted with a low boot line on raked rear quarters which is complemented by a falling waistline finished with chrome strips. Chassis No B187LE was originally completed in late 1938, finished in dark blue with a grey leather interior. It was supplied by Jack Barclay Ltd in December of 1938 to its first owner, Mr Stuart H Scribbans of the Purity Bread Company in Birmingham. It was owned by Mr Scribbins until 1965 when it was sold to Mr F V Chalmers of Staffordshire. Later in life the car found its way to ContinentalEurope where it was restored. It was acquired by Frank Dale & Stepsons from a collection in Germany in recent times and has subsequently been prepared to showroom condition. The car was mechanically reviewed and prepared, re-wired and re-painted in black to match the existing mohair hood. The interior was in good condition but new carpets were trimmed and fitted to complete this very stylish cars appearance. It is complete with an original handbook and a full complement of small tools which are housed in the trunk. Gurney Nutting are rightly considered to be one of the finest coachbuilders of the pre-war era and B187LE is an excellent example of their craft, presented in very good condition throughout and ready to enjoy.

By late 1962 the success of the S Series Continental Bentleys entered its third and final chapter, with the introduction of the S3 Continental. The major cosmetic change was the introduction of the twin headlight system, providing Bentley drivers with more illumination. Mechanically speaking the S3 Continental was very similar to the S2 Continental, but benefited from having larger carburettors fitted and an upgraded power steering system. The success of the Vilhelm Koren designed Bentley S2 Continental had pleased the powers that be at Park Ward and his design was adapted for the S3 Continental chassis, with the introduction of twin headlights. The coachwork did not lend itself happily to horizontal headlights so they were instead positioned on a slight slant, a design that has commonly become known as the Chinese Eye. Chassis No BC100XE which we are currently offering for sale is one of fifty eight cars built in right hand drive to Design No 2006 by Mulliner/Park Ward on the S3 Continentalchassis. It was originally completed in December of 1965, finished in valentine brown with a black hood and a blue leather interior. It was supplied by Jack Barclay Ltd through their west London showroom to its first owner, Mr John Osborne of Chester Square in London. Being a late production example, it benefits from having the slightly lipped wheel arches and chrome strips on the coachwork, giving it arguably a more attractive appearance than the earlier cars. During the 1980s the car was exported to the United States and in around 2012 it was restored to its striking current configuration, in dark green with a tan hood and a fawn leather interior and matching hood cover. It was supplied in 2014 to its present owner and formed part of a small collection of high quality cars. It comes fully serviced, prepared and tested by Frank Dale & Stepsons and is complete with copy chassis cards and tools. This model continues to become more popular each year and we consider this fine example to not only be avery usable and beautiful classic Bentley, but also one that may benefit from future appreciation in value.

The coachwork options available to buyers of Derby Bentleys was wide, with numerous body builders in the UK, but a limited number of cars were bodied abroad, with Chassis No B90GA being perhaps one of the very best. Veth & Zoon began life in 1840 in Arnhem in Holland by building coachwork for horse drawn carriages before moving onto motor cars at the turn of the century. In 1914 they were appointed as the official coachbuilders to the Dutch Royal Family, making coachwork for a wide range of chassis, those included Bugatti, Hotchkiss,Talbot Lago and of course Bentley. Following world war two, they diversified into the construction of truck bodies and still exist as a company today, although they have not made bodies for motor cars for over sixty years. Chassis No B90GA is one of just two bodies they made for Bentley chassis, both were drophead coupes, with Chassis No B21EJ being the other car. Chassis No B90GA was completed in March of 1936 making it one of the first 4.25 Litre models produced. It was originally built for Mr S Van Linge, a Dutchman who wanted to retain and use the car in Holland. Mr Van Linge was a great admirer of the Merdedes-Benz 540K Specials Roadsters and wanted his new Bentley to look very similar, something Veth & Zoon clearly achieved. It was ordered with a km per hour speedometer and fuel gauge in litres, making it ideal for Continental motoring. Some years later the car found its way to the United States before returning to the UK in the early 1990s. Fiennes Engineering did a substantial amount ofwork to Chassis No B90GA in the mid 1990s and on completion the car was rewarded with a class win at the 1996 Bentley Drivers Club concours. In more recent times, Chassis No B90GA has been restored to show quality by Alpine Eagle, the works included a re-paint, chrome restoration, interior improvements, a new hood and full mechanical preparation including an engine overhaul. The result is a car of exceptional beauty with the condition to match, making it ideal for touring, concours events, or both. We have been fortunate enough to offer some superb Derby Bentleys for sale over the years, this car may be the very best example and we are delighted to offer it for sale at this time. Chassis No B90GA looks equally beautiful and stylish in all three hood positions, offering the next fortunate owner various options depending on the weather. It is complete with large and small tools, copy chassis cards, handbook and a detailed history file and should be seen in person to be truly appreciated.

The S1 Continental engine had effectively run its course by 1959 and could not be developed any further. The approximate 160bhp power output was more than sufficient but due to pressures and competition elsewhere Rolls-Royce sought out an improved power unit to deliver more speed whilst retaining the Bentley Continentals refined performance. The answer was a complete move away from the six cylinder inline engine configuration, to an all new V8 engine boasting 6,230cc and an estimated 200bhp boosting the power by nearly 25%. It had been developed at Crewe for some years prior to being fitted to the first S2 Continental chassis at the Hooper works in December of 1959 and was an immediate success. It was constructed almost entirely in aluminium and was of a very similar weight to the S1 Continentals engine, but featured hydraulic tappets to ensure quiet running. A few other mechanical aspects were modified including the braking and lubrication systems, with automatic transmission now a standardfitting, making the Bentley S2 Continental a motor car capable of speeds approaching 120mph. At a glance it would appear to be identical to the earlier S1 Continental Flying Spur, but there are a few subtle differences. These include a slightly lower radiator shell and scuttle, resulting in a slightly more downward sloping bonnet, giving the car a more sporty appearance. The boot line was also lowered a few inches to sit directly above the rear bumper blade, with the rear number plate and lighting arrangement moved onto the lower section of the boot. Inside the car it came fitted with a slightly leaner steering wheel as well as stalk operated indicators. Chassis No BC99BY which we are currently offering for sale is one of just four examples built to Design No 7508/B in right hand drive, with a further two cars being built in left hand drive. It distinguishes itself from Design No 7508 with a smaller rear quarter light for greater privacy for the passengers in the rear of the car, which is commonlyknown as the Four Light design. Its was completed in September of 1961 in black with grey leather and supplied by E.H.Organ and Sons Ltd to its first owner, GKN Ltd, for their chairman Mr Kenneth Peacock. The car became the property of a Mr Cazenove of Cambridgeshire who had P&A Wood maintain and improve the car for him during the 1990s, the works included an engine, gearbox and suspension overhaul as well as regular servicing. The current owner acquired Chassis No BC99BY in 2013 and maintained the car with us over the past five years. Works included general servicing as well as numerous mechanical and cosmetic improvements including work to the interior and restoration to the woodwork. The present owner has spent in excess of 30,000 GBP on BC99BY during his five years of ownership. The car drives beautifully and is complete with handbook, tools, copy chassis cards and its history file. This rare post war Bentley will be hard to repeat and comes ready for its next owners enjoyment.

1959 was an important year in the history of Rolls-Royce and Bentley when looking at the mechanical development of the companies. The series one engine had effectively run its course by this point and could not be developed any further. The approximate 160bhp output was more than sufficient but due to pressures and competition elsewhere Rolls-Royce sought out an improved power unit to deliver more speed whilst retaining the refined performance. The answer was a complete move away from the six cylinder inline engine configuration to an all new V8 unit boasting 6,230cc and an estimated 200bhp. The new V8 engine was constructed almost entirely in aluminium and was of a very similar weight to its predecessor, but featured hydraulic tappets to ensure quiet running. A few other mechanical aspects were modified including the braking and lubrication systems, with automatic transmission and power steering now standard fittings. The new second generation Silver Cloud and S series cars were capable of speedscomfortably in excess of 100mph whilst retaining the feel and performance Rolls-Royce and Bentley owners had become accustomed to. Coachbuilders H.J. Mulliner had enjoyed significant success during the 1950s with their iconic R Type Continental Fastback and subsequent S1 Continental Fastback designs. As the launch of the all new Bentley S2 Continental chassis and engine drew closer the design team at H.J. Mulliner also looked to the future and began to make some small amendments to their S1 Continentals Fastback design by re-positioning of the front spot lights on to the top of the wing line. They also listened to their customers requests for a new two door design which allowed greater luggage capacity in the boot. The result was design number 7500, built in very limited numbers which was fitted with a wraparound rear screen and fins on the front and rear wings. Design number 7500 was arguably improved further for the S2 Continental chassis with the removal of the fins to allow a more gracefulline. The result was design number 7514, considered by many including ourselves to be the most attractive of all coachwork designs fitted to the S2 Continental chassis between 1959 and 1962. Chassis No BC51AR is one of just 71 examples built to design number 7514 in right hand drive by H.J. Mulliner. The coachwork was constructed entirely of aluminium at their west London works, completed to order for each individual customer in the bespoke fashion that Bentley owners were accustomed to. The car was originally completed in April of 1960, finished in velvet green with beige leather as it still is today. It was supplied by Jack Barclay Ltd to its first owner, Mr Ivan Couper Sanderson of west London. Later in life between 1989 and 1992 Chassis No BC51AR benefited from a three year, body off, ground up restoration by Broughtons. The work was completed to the highest standards and some twenty five years on from the completion of the works, the car is still in excellent condition in every respect. Aphotographic record of the works is complete with the car, as are the service and maintenance records. Chassis No BC51AR was first acquired by Frank Dale & Stepsons approximately five years ago when supplied by us to a noted Bentley enthusiast who has enjoyed the car on numerous rallies and events across Europe ever since. It has been serviced and maintained during this period in our workshops, regardless of cost. This beautiful example is fitted with air conditioning on the rear parcel shelf and is complete with copy chassis cards, handbook and history file. In our opinion it should be driven and seen in person to be truly appreciated.

The coachwork did not lend itself happily to horizontal headlights so they were instead positioned on a slight slant, a design that has commonly become known as the Chinese Eye. Vilhelm Koren originally designed both a fixed head coupe and a drophead coupe on the S2 Continental chassis, but the fixed head coupe was never produced. However on the S3 Continentalchassis, both designs were available, with both fixed head (Design No 2035) and drophead (Design No 2006) being produced in very similar numbers. More importantly for the first time these designs were also offered in the form of a Rolls-Royce. The Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud III models were mechanically identical to the Bentley S3 Continentals, with only the radiator, instrumentation and badging being changed. Chassis No CSC131B is one of just 70 examples built in right hand drive to Design No 2041. It was originally completed in October of 1965, finished in dawn blue with a blue leather interior. It was supplied by H.R.Owen Ltd to its first owner, Mr R W Eastwood of South Kensington. It was retained by Mr Eastwood until October 1978 when it was sold to Colonel W R A Featherstonhaugh of Westminster and it has the following owners between then and 2009 when it was acquired by the current owner, Ferguson Industrial Holdings (May 1985) Mr D S Vernon (October 1989) and Mr B Ainley (February 1999) It wassupplied to the current owner in April of 2009 and has since been substantially improved mechanically speaking, with approximately £80,000 worth if improvements. These include but are not limited to a complete engine overhaul, brake system overhaul, gearbox overhaul and power steering system overhaul. The result of these extensive works by a noted Rolls-Royce specialist is a car that drives superbly. It is complete with copy chassis cards, tools, light blue lambs wool over rugs and two extensive files of history and correspondence covering several decades of the cars life, from the early 1980s to present day. Chassis No CSC131B is an excellent example of this increasingly popular and fashionable design.

1962 saw the introduction of the S3 variant of the factory bodied standard steel saloon and at first glance it would appear that the all new S3 was merely an S2 with different headlamps. The introduction of the twin headlamps was clearly the most obvious change, but the differences did not end there. Further changes included the introduction of smaller bumper over riders and the repositioning of the front indicators and side lamps into one single unit on the front wing, resulting in an arguably more attractive appearance. Mechanically speaking the S3 was issued with larger 9:1 compression ratio carburettors, improved power steering to aid smoother movement at parking speed and a Lucas vacuum-advance distributor to aid fuel consumption making it almost identical in mechanical specification to the S3 Continental that was being produced at the same time. This particular example, Chassis No B480CN, was completed in May of 1963, finished in masons black with a beige leather interior. It was ordered byMr J Brazil of Amersham in Buckinghamshire and supplied by Jack Barclay Ltd. It was ordered with electric windows and an auxiliary fuel tank for long distance journeys. Mr Brazil used the car extensively during his seven year ownership period, driving 70,000 miles. The car was then sold via Jack Barclay in 1970 to its second owner, Mr C Price of Ludlow in Shropshire. The car passed to his son in 1974 who owned it until 1987 at which point the mileage was 80,000 miles. The third owners were Mr and Mrs Cornish of Wanstead in London who set about some cosmetic improvements upon purchase, all listed in the cars history file. The car was owned by Mr St John Miller from 1998 to 2000 who sold it to Mr G Purdie. During Mr Purdies ownership, the car received substantial improvements, including a full coachwork restoration, mechanical works and new carpets to compliment the original leather interior which the car still retains today. To date, the car has travelled 97,000 miles from new. It is complete withan extensive history file, small and large tools and handbook. This fine example is serviced, prepared and ready for its fortunate next owner.
