Vintage and Prestige are proud to offer this 1937 Derby Bentley 4.25 Sports Saloon by Park Ward For Sale. Registration: ACJ 363 Chassis no: B120KT Engine no: Y2BN Unveiled to great acclaim at the August 1933 Ascot Races, the Derby Bentley was underpinned by a 'double dropped' chassis featuring all-round semi-elliptic suspension and four-wheel drum brakes. Powered by a more potent version of its Rolls-Royce 20/25 sibling's 3669cc OHV straight-six engine allied to four-speed manual transmission, the newcomer was soon christened the 'Silent Sportscar'. Responding to increased competition from the likes of Alvis and Lagonda, Bentley gave its customers the option of a larger 4257cc engine during the 1936 season. Priced at £50, a comparatively modest sum compared to the cost of a basic chassis, the new unit proved so popular that the smaller capacity powerplant was soon dropped. Nicely balanced to begin with, the Derby Bentley chassis proved more than capable of handling the extra power and torque. Of the 1,241 4.25-litre variants produced, just 46 were clothed by the Parisian coachbuilder Vanvooren. Highly influential during the 1930s (its patents were employed by over forty European rivals), Vanvooren looked set to become Bentley's preferred body supplier for the soon to be introduced 'Corniche' version of the MKV model until WW2 intervened. B120KT is offered in superb mechanical order, when looking through the invoices from marquee specialist Glen Grindrod it is clear to see that no expense has been spared and no bolt left un-checked. Also shown in the gallery is an excess of 10k spent at MAGGS vintage for the fitment of a high ratio (3.64/1) back axle and a brake and spring overhaul. All of these aspects combined together results in a truly remarkably smooth and well handling Derby Bentley. The body is a sports saloon design by Park Ward, finished in Grey over Cream it is a striking combination that has to bee seen. The paint finish is of a high standard and hard to fault, the quality carries onto the interior with all wood and leather being to a high standard. In our showroom and ready for viewing.

4 1/4. Three position Drophead. Coachwork by James Young. This magnificent car spent the last 15 years in a well known museum. Covered only 65,000 miles from new. Undergone a total restoration including rebuilt engine 10 years ago. Finished in Black and Ivory. In stunning condition any inspection invited.., Something very special very rare and very collectable. 1936 Bentley 4 1/4 Litre Drop Head Coupe with coachwork by James Young. One of only six produced and featured in the well known book 'A pride of Bentleys' by John Adams. Page 166/167. This being a prototype for James Young experimenting with cantilever doors and Rolls-Royce winning the Premier Coachwork Award at the 1938 Motor Show for such a design. Having easy access to the rear seats and saving the problem of opening large doors in a confined garage. Also, being able to leave the door open whilst being parked at the side of the road and having no problem with dropping of doors. It was never put into full production as it was far tooadvanced for its time and much too expensive for the average customer. Before being acquired by ourselves, this magnificent car spent the last 20 years being exhibited in a motor museum. Believed to have covered just over 50,000 miles from new. Now undergone a major restoration by ourselves with full photographic evidence. This consisting of a bare metal respray in her original livery of Black and Ivory, a new exhaust fitted from front to back. A new fully lined hood and weather equipment. All brakes and electrics overhauled and has been generally serviced throughout. And now being in an absolutely stunning condition in every conceivable way and turns heads where ever she goes. Fast, rakish and a delight to drive. A pure investment for the connoisseur.

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. Steady development continued throughout the cars production and in late 1938 even more power was obtained when the overdrive models were introduced, which were known as the MX/MR series cars. The original Bentley sales literature outlined the key improvements that improved the overdrive cars performance which included the provision of an overdrive gearbox which would allow the car to attain a greater maximum speed without exceeding maximum engine revolutions. The steering was of improved design, providing greater control under allconditions. Modified gear ratios and slight engine modifications also improved acceleration under certain conditions. The slower running engine coupled with the over drive top gear resulted in greater silence and smoothness. And finally centralised chassis lubrication and automatic shock absorbers with over-riding hand control were fitted. The MX/MR models were truly the ultimate incarnation on the Derby chassis and are still very much sought after some seventy years on. Just two hundred chassis examples were created, finding their way to lucky owners with a variety of coachwork designs. Chassis No B38MR was originally completed in November of 1938 fitted with sedanca coupe coachwork by James Young and shown on their stand at the Earls Court Motor Show. It was one of two cars built to this style, listed as a Brougham de Ville, this title referring to James Youngs Bromley Broughams of the Victorian era. An exert from the James Young show catalogue from 1938 reads Barclay design town coupe, seatingaccommodation for 4/5 persons and with fixed rear quarter and sliding panel de-ville extension; a single wide door on either side gives easy access to front and rear seats. The first owner is understood to have been the 4th Marquess of Dufferin and Ava. The car changed hands five times between 1938 and 1957 before being shipped to the United States where it remained for almost thirty years before returning to the UK in the late 1980s. It was supplied by Charles Howard in the late 1990s and improved and restored by many noted Rolls-Royce and Bentley specialists over the preceding years with extensive cosmetic and mechanical works undertaken. All the details, invoices and correspondence relating to the works undertaken is available in the cars history file. Chassis No B38MR is one of just two cars built to this design, twinned with Chassis No B100MR. It is in very good order throughout following the works over the past twenty years and is complete with handbook and wheel changing tools.

One of the first 4.25 Litre examples built was Chassis No B198GA, completed in June of 1936, just three months into production of the new model. It began life with a Park Ward saloon style body as so many Derby Bentleys did, but was re-bodied into its current configuration some decades ago, with an original open tourer body by Corsica. Based in Corsica Street, Islington, London, Corsica were better known for coachwork on vintage Bentleys and Bugattis, producing only three open tourer bodies for Derby chassis. One body was fitted fromnew, to Chassis No B79JY and two further cars were re-bodied in this style, those being B116DG and also B198GA, the car we are currently offering for sale. The three Corsica bodies were built in a style very reminiscent of the Vanden Plas (Malcolm Campbell) style tourer, with cut away doors and flowing lines. Chassis No B198GA has been supplied by Frank Dale & Stepsons on more than one occasion in the past, in 1985 when supplied to a long standing customer who kept and enjoyed the car until 2011. At this point the car was supplied again by Frank Dale & Stepsons and following purchase, the new owner instructed some cosmetic restoration work, which included all of the chrome being restored, the coachwork restored and re-painted in dawn blue, a new hood in dark blue and some interior improvements to complement the mechanical preparation works we carried out. The car was then driven to southern Italy where it has been enjoyed in more recent times. We are delighted to have this motor car back for saleagain in 2017. It drives superbly and being so light is very sporty when considering its performance on the road. It is also complete with its original handbook and a selection of tools. Being one of just three bodies produced by Corsica, Chassis No B198GA may represent an opportunity not soon to be repeated.

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.
