1935 Derby Bentley 3.5 litre Park Ward Alloy body saloon Chassis number: B-120-EF Registration number: ESJ494 Off test on the 13th April 1935; This Derby Bentley wears aluminium coachwork by Park Ward, taking the form of a 4 door sports saloon. In the last few years over £30,000 has been spent upon the car with work being done mostly by noted vintage car engineer Roy O'Sullivan of Stroud. The bills detail a comprehensive overhaul to all things mechanical including the braking system & fitting of a new cylinder head. The one-shot lubrication has also been attended to as have king pins, brake shoes, axles, bushes etc etc etc. The car is finished in dark red to the exterior with biscuit coloured leather to the interior. The leather is of recent origin & in lovely condition. A thick file of bills & also a photographic record of the work done comes with the car. On the road the car drives well with temperature at 70 degrees & oil pressure at a high 32 lbs when under load. The speedometer reads 3mph slow so at 60 MPH, a speed the car runs at easily one is actually traveling a tad faster making the car well able to run in modern traffic. A large sunroof is fitted & slides easily back for al-fresco summer motoring. The boot is a capacious affair with the spare wheel being mounted to the exterior of the boot lid complete with a body coloured wheel cover. Pleasingly, the car comes with its original instruction manual. The brightwork is good with the radiator having been re-chromed. Likewise under the bonnet the engine bay is tidy & well detailed. All in all a pleasing car to drive with all the major works needing to be done having been recently completed.

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. Chassis No B65BN was completed in September 1935 and delivered to its first owner Miss Phyllis Robins shortly afterwards. It was fitted with three position drophead coupe coachwork by Corinthian of Kilburn Lane in London NW10. It is understood that only three bodies were produced by Corinthian, two for Lagonda Rapiers and just a single body for this Derby Bentley, making B65GN unique. The sales order from Conduit Street records that the car was supplied to Miss Robins of Baker Street in central London by Chester & Cole Ltd. The striking coachwork appears to be a beautiful mix of transatlantic and continental designs, with Art Deco features. Thecombination of the extended bonnet, angled windscreen and rakish extended sweep to the rear result in a very pleasing and attractive appearance. Miss Robins kept the car for just a few months and sold it in December of 1936 to Mr J James of Stockton on Tees who retained it until 1945. In August of 1945 he sold it to Mr R Taylor who kept the car just a few months, selling it in December 1945 to Mr F Porter of Liverpool. He in turn kept the car until January of 1951 before selling it to Mr R Rathbone in West Kirby in the Wirral. Chassis No B65GN changed hands for the final time in January of 1959 when it became the property of a family in Liverpool. They have retained ownership from 1959 until present day. The car was used between 1959 and 1965 before it was put into storage for approximately twenty years after falling into a state of disrepair. During the mid-1980s the coachwork and ash frame underwent significant restoration at the familys request. Mechanically speaking the car was deemed to be ingood order at this time, however in the 1990s further aspects were tended to. By the late 1990s the back axle required completely overhauling, so it was dispatched to Fiennes engineering where the crown wheel and pinion, bearings and differential were renewed. In 2003 Fiennes were then instructed to completely overhaul the clutch. The car was then driven sparingly before being stored once again, between 2007 and 2011. By 2011 the family decided to invest further in B65GN, instructing a detailed inspection of the car by one of the worlds most respected Derby Bentley specialists. Over the following few years, bringing us to present day, the following works were carried out to B65GN by said specialist, all executed to a very high standard. The front suspension was re-built, the radiator was overhauled, the engine was overhauled, the coachwork was restored and re-painted, the interior was replaced, restoration of the hood frame and a new hood in dark blue mohair and re-chroming to a number of areas ofthe bright work. The works listed above do not cover the whole process, details of which are available upon request. The works are documented in the cars history file, available to be viewed at our London showroom. The result is a car of great quality and one that drives absolutely beautifully. It is quiet, powerful and superbly prepared in every respect. It should be driven in person to be truly appreciated. Chassis No B65GN represents an excellent opportunity to acquire a fully prepared, extremely stylish Derby Bentley built to a unique design and in our opinion it should be seriously considered by collectors and enthusiasts alike.
